Russell Simmons and Hana Nitsche, 28-Year Age Difference

Sugar Daddy Russell Simmons And Hana Nitsche

Rus­sell Sim­mons is best known for co-founding the iconic hip hop label Def Jam Record­ings, which has signed super­star artists like Rihanna, Kanye West, Nas, and Frank Ocean.

The label, which was even­tu­ally sold to Uni­ver­sal Music, made up only a frac­tion of Sim­mons’ com­pany, Rush Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Inc., which also man­ages artists, pro­duces films and tele­vi­sion shows, devel­ops a mag­a­zine, and runs an adver­tis­ing agency. On top of all that, Sim­mons has launched three cloth­ing lines—Phat Farm, Argyle Cul­ture, and Amer­i­can Classics—along with a line of ath­letic footwear, and a line of jew­elry. Sim­mons most recently landed a two-year deal to cre­ate unique projects for HBO.

As hard as it is to keep up with Sim­mons’ busi­ness ven­tures, it’s even harder to keep track of his girl­friends, espe­cially because he never strays from his “type”—beautiful mod­els that seem to get younger and younger. After spend­ing years dat­ing sev­eral young women, Sim­mons finally set­tled down with model Kimora Lee. When they got mar­ried in 1998, Sim­mons was 41 and Lee was only 23. Ten years and two kids later, the cou­ple offi­cially divorced in 2009—although they had been sep­a­rated and were dat­ing other peo­ple for the last three years of their marriage.

While Lee went on to marry again, Sim­mons returned to his for­mer sugar daddy lifestyle, rack­ing up a long list of model girlfriends—from the list of the names that we actu­ally know about, the old­est one was 19 years younger than him; the youngest one was almost 30 years younger. Almost all of the rela­tion­ships only lasted a few months, if even that.

In Decem­ber 2012, at the age of 55, Sim­mons bagged his lat­est sugar baby, 27-year-old Ger­man model Hana Nitsche. Things looked good for a while—the cou­ple even vaca­tioned with Sim­mons’ ex-wife. But six months after going pub­lic with their rela­tion­ship, Sim­mons con­firmed via Twit­ter what every­one was wait­ing to hear: it was over. How­ever, the cou­ple seems to have rekin­dled their romance because they’ve been show­ing up together at sev­eral dif­fer­ent events over the past few months.
