On Wednesday, an Atlanta Superior court judge increased rapper T.I.’s child support payments from $3,000 to $5,000 a month for his two oldest sons. [LINK]

And on Thursday, a NY judge ordered music mogul Russell Simmons to pay his ex-wife Kimora Lee Simmons the ridiculous sum of $40K a month. Doesn’t she have a man?

Court records show Russell Simmons has agreed to pay $40,000 a month in child support.

Los Angeles Superior Court judge Marjorie Steinberg signed off on an agreement Thursday giving Kimora Lee Simmons sole custody of the couple’s two daughters, 9-year-old Ming and 6-year-old Aoki. The couple’s divorce was finalized in January. Kimora Lee Simmons filed for divorce in March 2008, citing irreconcilable differences.

Russell Simmons, the 51-year-old hip-hop mogul, was granted visitation rights and must pay child support until each daughter reaches 19 and a half years of age.

The 33-year-old Kimora Lee Simmons has final say on whether her daughters appear on her reality TV show “Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane.”

A call placed to Russell Simmons’ lawyer was forwarded to a recorded message declining to comment. [LINK]

    Yes, Kimora has a man however it is NOT Dijimon’s (sp) responsibility to take care of her kids. Ming and Aoki has a father who is actively involved in their lives and is willing to care for them financially. $40k a month!?! Good God almighty, those girls won’t have a care or need in this world.

    you know what yvonne, the good thing is that he loves those girls so much Russ is gonna give kimora that paper without giving it a second thought and he’s still gonna be their daddy . i have always admired how kimora and russ are when it come to their girls. they aren’t together, but they make sure they know that they are loved on both sides. i have also never heard either of them say a bad word towards each other as far as the kids go .

    @licia: And that is how MATURE adults should conduct themselves when children are involved.

    $40K a month is fair, he can more than afford that and I seriously doubt that he wouldn’t give more. The whole point of child support/divorce settlements is that the children continue to live in the same lifestyle as though both parents were still together.

    Kimora is only 33… wow. I bet some professional baby mamas are licking their wounds.

    Is this the amount that Kimora requested or that the courts determined he had to pay based on his finances? If Kimora requested it I’m disappointed in her because she always struck me as a independent female. They both are paid and should equally take care of the kids because they both have the means so unless she is also spending 20k a month on her girls, she shouldn’t have request such a large chunk of change. I’m sure Russell didn’t hesistate to agree to the amount because I believe he would pay whatever to take care of his kids but don’t take advantage of that if you don’t have to.

    So what if she has a man? They are not married and those are not his children. Besides, didn’t Russell and Kimora agree on this last year? He obviously feels she and the kids are worth since we don’t hear him crying foul.

    As for Tip, now he can have two baby mamas with the newest Louis bag each month.

    I had to pull a calculator out for this one, Russ is a millionaire. This support only comes to 480k which is not alot if you have millions. Oh and when does support go until the child is 19.5yrs?? TI is a millionaire too so 5k a month until his kids reach 18 isnt that much
