She married the co-founder of Def Jam in 1998.

They have two children, Ming, 14, and Aoki, 12, together.

The couple works out co parenting together.

She told Frisky:

For me, the key is just doing the best you can to make it work. I definitely have had ups and downs with Russell [Simmons]. We have a great relationship, but I had to whip him into shape. It was not easy. We had some issues and some fights and I had to stand up for what I believe in, and he had to say, “You’re being a little too pushy.” And I said, “I don’t care—it’s my kids!” When it comes to parenting with the ex, you have to be respectful and try to be considerate and you always have to think of the children first.

She also has a son, Kenzo Lee Hounsou, with actor Djimon Hounsou.

3. She Was the Head of Baby Phat
