Russell Simmons is footing the bill to make sure it's not just his ex-wife who's living life in the fab lane.

E! News has obtained court documents filed by Kimora Lee Simmons which stipulate that her hip-hop mogul ex pay a minimum of $40,000 per month in child support for daughters Ming Lee and Aoki Lee.

The breakdown equals out to $20,000 per girl and is required until each reaches 19 and a half years old—keeping Simmons paying for Ming, 8, through 2019 and Aoki, 5, through 2022.

Per the court docs, the Baby Phat exec will retain sole legal custody of the girls, but allows for papa Simmons to have a say in any "professional endeavors" the girls pursue. In the past, the girls have been frequently featured in print ads for Kimora's lifestyle brand.

The documents also break down the couple's physical custody sharing, with Mother's Day and Father's Day to be spent with the holiday-observing parent and Simmons getting the girls for one week at Christmas and one month in the summer, including, as specifically requested by the mogul, the weekend of his annual Rush Philanthropic East Hampton Art for Life benefit.

As part of Simmons' "reasonable child visitation," he will also get one weekend with his daughters every two months and alternate spring breaks with Kimora.

Simmons is also required to have a nanny and security person, to be named by Kimora, on hand when the girls are in his custody.

The duo first separated in March 2006, and Kimora finally filed for divorce in March 2008, citing irreconcilable differences.
