In 1984, Simmons met Rick Rubin, with whom he later released albums for the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J and Public Enemy and others, on his own label Def Jam Recordings.
Russell met his future wife at the Mary McFadden fashion show in November 1992. Model Kimora Lee took part in it. And five years later, in the last minutes of the outgoing 1997, Russell finally offered her his hand and heart. In 1998 they got married on the Caribbean island of Saint Barthelemy.
In 2005, Russell Simmons became one of 22 major show business personalities who founded the Fashion Delivers Charitable Foundation to eliminate the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
But in March 2006, Russell and Kimora decided to divorce, which the truth happened only in January 2009 due to disagreements in the divorce proceedings. Two children, Min Lee and Aoki Lee, followed in the footsteps of their mother and now participate in the shows of the children's fashion collection "Baby Phat Kids Collection" .
Since the mid-1990s, Simmons has been practicing yoga (specifically Jivamukti Yoga) and Transcendental Meditation. In 2014, his book Success Through Stillness: Meditation Made Simple was published, dedicated to this topic. In the same year, Simmons admitted in an interview that his favorite books are Patanjali's Bhagavad-gita and Yoga Sutras and that he reads them “daily”.
