Hip-hop mogul RUSSELL SIMMONS has agreed to let MTV bosses show off his old
dream home on their CRIBS programme - as a tribute to those who lost their
lives in 9/11.
Simmons and his wife KIMORA filmed the show at home show in their swanky
Manhattan high-rise apartment just before the terrorist attacks on New York in
2001, and they've since moved out.
But Simmons has agreed to let MTV show fans where the couple used to live
as long as they also screen footage of the destroyed Twin Towers, and broadcast
a special message to those who lost their lives, at the end of the film.
In the short film, the DEF JAM founder and his model wife take MTV cameras
to the roof of their property and show off the view they had of the Manhattan
Simmons reveals, "It's beautiful at sunset, and it's even prettier at
night when the buildings are all lit up."
After the footage, a message reads, "Due to the events of 9/11, Russell
and Kimora's building sustained massive structural damage. Fortunately, they
were safe from harm and have since moved to a new home.
"Our deepest condolences go out to those that were not as fortunate."
