Russell Simmons' Vague Instagram Apology: 'Deeply Sorry' for Yelling at Daughters

Russell Simmons Responds to Allegations of Abusive Behavior Towards Ex-Wife and Daughter Entrepreneur Russell Simmons has broken his silence in response to disturbing allegations of abusive conduct by his ex-wife, Kimora Lee Simmons, and their daughter, Aoki Lee Simmons.

In a cryptic Instagram post on Tuesday, Russell addressed the accusations, offering a vague apology for his behavior towards his daughters. Simmons' message to his daughters conveyed spiritual reflection and encouragement.

Through a series of ellipses, he wrote, "God is testing you a little bit, it's ok, be strong... They are called growing pains... as you know, we grow through adversity and struggle... you read my books and heard me preach your whole childhood...

reach back to old lessons and remember to remember 'smile and breathe.' You are the watchers of this world... so let go... be at ease... God is driving, and he is working on you."

Simmons' Profound Apology: Unconditional Love

Expressing remorse for his actions, Simmons continued, "DEEPLY sorry for being frustrated and yelling...

but know this... there are no conditions... for sure, I love you guys more than I love myself." The public outcry began when Kimora Lee Simmons and Aoki Lee Simmons took to Instagram on Monday to expose Russell's alleged erratic and verbally abusive behavior.

Adding to the gravity of the situation, Russell has also faced numerous allegations of sexual misconduct and assault by multiple women, all of which he vehemently denies. Kimora shared her distress in an Instagram Story, stating, "I'm so sorry to have to do this.

But this man has been threatening my kids' lives. I'm hearing so much more now. We won't be bullied or threatened, or afraid. No one should live like this. No one's child. This is abuse. Not ok." Aoki Lee, aged 20, presented evidence to support the claims, sharing text messages and video call recordings that depict her father scolding her while she is in distress.

The posts have since been deleted, but she expressed that her father's behavior has been consistently awful, causing severe panic attacks. "He needs help and won't accept that. He refuses to acknowledge he is not himself. He has threatened and bullied my sister, my grandma; he has harassed my grandma in the middle of the night in poor health, sent a man to my sister's apartment at 2 am to scare her," Aoki Lee explained on Instagram.

These shocking revelations have brought the spotlight back onto Russell Simmons and his alleged history of abusive behavior. As the public awaits further developments, the well-being of his daughters remains a significant concern, and the hope for a resolution that ensures their safety and emotional recovery is paramount.
