Russell Simmons is now asking for joint custody of his two daughters in his divorce from estranged wife Kimora Lee, reports CelebTV.com.
In documents filed Tuesday in Los Angeles court, the hip-hop mogul is seeking joint physical and legal custody of his children Ming, 8, and Aoki, 5.
Kimora Lee asked for sole custody in her March divorce filing, requesting that Russell get only "reasonable child visitation ... to be accompanied at all times by the children's nanny and security personnel." Also, both parties are seeking to deny spousal support for the other.
Russell, 50, and Kimora Lee, 33, were married in 1998 and separated in 2006. She is currently dating actor Djimon Hounsou.
