In his family, he has an elder brother Daniel “Diggy” Simmons. He had a sister Victoria Anne Simmons, but she died very young due to an illness or a condition called omphalocele. Basically, she was born with her organs outside of her body. Everything you want to learn about that defect, you can find on CDC website.

He is also working hard on obtaining the license to become a real estate agent. He is also working on a couple of singles with his brother.

Up until now, he has characterized as an actor and he also has his IMDB page. True to be told, he was only portraying himself in all those “documentaries” or reality programs. He was a host on his own show “Rev Runs Around The World”, but ratings were so low that they had to cancel the show. Maybe that is why the young Simmons wanted to turn his career.

Although he was very active on social media, and he loved to communicate with his fans, nowadays he seems to be “offline”. There aren’t any new pics on his accounts, there aren’t any new posts on Russell Simmons II Twitter or Russell Simmons Facebook and the only info we could get was his short answer to a reporter during the “red carpet” interview.
