Russell Simmons Is Happy About His Child Support Order

Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons was recently ordered by a Los Angeles judge to pay $40,000 / month in child support until his two daughters reach the age of 19 1/2 and to provide a new car worth at least $60,000 every three years.

Today Simmons wants to clear the air -- he doesn't mind the extravagant requirements when it comes to his daughter Ming Lee, 9, and Aoki Lee, 6.

"I am reading these stories today about how a judge ordered me to pay Kimora $40,000 a month in child support and I want to make something very clear. Nothing was ordered, it was given," he writes on his blog,

He adds, "My kids have a fabulous life; they are exposed to a broad range of artistic and scholastic educational programs and I'm very happy to contribute to that."

"As long as I have it, they can have it. If I ever don't have it, I'm coming to live with them!" Simmons writes.

Simmons was given monitored visitation with the girls and custody of both girls one week every two months during the school year. His ex-wife, Kimora Lee Simmons, was granted sole legal and physical custody of the girls.
