Divorces can be pretty messy, especially when there are children involved. But Russell Simmons and his ex-wife, Kimora Lee Simmons, seem to have post-divorce co-parenting down to a science—something that Russell says is mostly due to the fact that he and Kimora are great friends.
“She’s my best friend. We’ve always been [good friends],” Russell said during an appearance on “Bethenny.” ” I mean even when we were divorcing it was like ‘You want this? I don’t know.’ We were good friends always.”
The hip hop mogul went on to commend Kimora for her amazing mothering skills.
“She is a good mother too, it can’t get better. My kids go to a school for gifted kids and they are well-behaved. They are awake and conscious and she’s the reason. She’s an amazing mother.”
“I go and meditate with them every morning and take them to school, they’re just pretty and they’re an inspiration for my life obviously and she’s made them for me.”
Though things didn’t work out with Kimora, Russell says he’s open to marrying again.
“I’m going to get married again. Yeah, I’m stupid I still think I’m young,” he explained before adding that he’s open to having more children. “Depending on the woman I married, if that was something she really wanted to do, you know, I love children and I love my children and I would love more. You know, but it’s not something like ‘I got to get another kid’ but I would.”
It’s great that they’re able to remain so close even though their marriage didn’t work out.
