Simone Smith – Grammys 2016 Host LL Cool J’s Wife

Simone Smith

LL Cool J is the host, once again, of the 2016 Grammy Awards. And, for those of you ladies out there wondering if he is married, the answer is yes. The couple has been married since 1995 and they met when LL was 19 years old. The couple has four kids together - a son, Najee and three daughters, Italia, Samaria and Nina. In an interview with Ambition Bliss, Smith talked about her family saying that: My marriage and my kids definitely come first, you know? I make time for my kids ... I do the regular things that moms do. I run my house, I drive my kids to school, and I have a great support system. It’s definitely important for me and my husband to have ‘Mommy-Daddy time.’ We do the movies, we go to dinner, but we also do family things with the kids as well. In 2004, Smith was diagnosed with stage III chondorosarcoma and had to undergo surgery that left her having to learn how to walk again. LL took some time off to be there for his wife. Clearly, the time away from his career did not affect his income much as he is estimated to have a net worth of $100 million.
