According to legal papers that The Insider has obtained, Kimora Lee Simmons has been granted sole legal and physical custody of her two young daughters, Ming, 8, and Aoki, 5. Father Russell Simmons has been granted visitation with the girls for one week every eighth week with additional summer vacation and holiday time. Kimora Lee has been granted the legal authority to make all decisions regarding their daughters’ health, education and welfare.
Russell is legally responsible to pay Kimora Lee $40,000 per month for both children. Child support will be paid until each girl reaches the age of 19 1/2, becomes emancipated, dies, marries, becomes self-supporting, no longer lives with Kimora, joins the armed forces or if the court later orders otherwise. He must also purchase or lease a new car that is valued at no less than $60,000 for the use and benefit of his daughters. That car must be replaced every 24 months.
