Kimora Lee Simmons Accused Russell Simmons Has Bullying Her and Their Kids
To say that Russell Simmons didn't have the most enjoyable Father’s Day weekend would be an understatement. Kimora Lee Simmons, his ex-wife, took to social media to accuse the Def Jam co-founder of bullying her and their daughters.
All the drama began when Ming, the couple's 23-year-old daughter, shared a story on Instagram on Sunday where she wished her mother a Happy Father’s Day. The following day, Russell responded in a now-deleted post, “Stop telling fathers they should have fought harder to see their children & start asking mothers why he had to fight at all.” In response, Kimora shared several stories on her Instagram stating her case.
“I’m so sorry to have to do this. But this man has been threatening my kids’ lives. I’m hearing so much more now,” she said. “We won’t be bullied threatened or afraid. Who gaf?
“Leave my kids alone. This narrative of attacking the only caregiver, the only parent in the home with the kids, the mom, AND the kids for one’s own shortcomings and embarrassments is dead. Dead. Dead,” she continued.
“The same abusive ish. This is how you maneuver [sic] with the women all around you,” she went on. “Your threats and lies and intimidation maneuvers [sic] and tactics are sad. Stop it, please. Your own flesh and blood? Enough is enough.”
Aoki, the former couple's 20-year-old daughter, said that her father’s behavior toward them has grown worse over the years.
“Some of us do think he’s mentally ill or experiencing something like dementia,” she wrote in the comments. “He really acts like he hates and does not know his children frequently.”
The ex-couple began dating when Kimora was still in high school and Russell was almost 40,and married in 1998. Although they have been cordial since their divorce in 2008, recently, things have gotten ugly. Russell, whose been accused of sexual assault by various women, sued Kimora for fraud last year.
Deion Sanders May Need To Have His Foot Amputated
Pro Football Hall of Famer and University of Colorado coach Deion Sanders has revealed that he may need to have his foot amputated. On Thee Pregame Show, Sanders allowed a camera crew to record his meeting with the medical staff at the University of Colorado as they attempted to diagnose his ongoing foot pain.
"You just have to understand what the risks are. Things can cascade," Dr. Donald Jacobs said, noting that “Coach Prime" could be in danger of losing another toe or his entire foot.
"Well, I know what risks are," Sanders said in response. "I only have eight toes. So, I'm pretty sure I understand."
Sanders also said that he’s lost feeling on the bottom of his left foot, and wants to get any procedure done immediately so that he can recover in time for the season to begin.
"I want to do it this summer because when we get rolling, I'm not going to have time to do it," Sanders said. "This is the best downtime I have."
Back in 2021, Sanders missed three games as coach at Jackson State after recovering from having his toes amputated.
Sanders plans to make his debut with Colorado against Texas Christian University on September 2, 2023.
