Birthday Presence Buying a birthday gift for that someone special can be difficult for anyone – but it poses a special challenge for hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons. "I don't know what the hell to buy her," Simmons tells Daily Insider about his wife, former model and Baby Phat founder Kimora Lee. "She's got a few Bentleys. She's got all the jewelry. She buys her own stuff. She likes a lot of toys." So what's he going to do for her 29th birthday, coming up May 4? He's going to fly a planeload of her friends, including best pal Tyra Banks, to London for the Prince's Trust Urban Music Festival May 8 and 9. "Prince Charles asked me to be the ambassador" for the event, Simmons says. "We're bringing a bunch of people, whoever she wants. I'm chartering a 46-seater plane. It'll be a good time in England. We're going to have a big party." As for Simmons himself, don't plan on spending a fortune for his birthday (Oct. 4). "I own that luxury watch company, Grimoldi, but I wear a Timex," he says. "I'm just different. I had a lot of junk already. I'm junked out."
