LL Cool J and Simon Smith
The rapper, songwriter, and reality TV star was about 19-years-old when he met Smith, who was only 17. The pair were married in 1995 after dating for eight years, and have four kids together.
LL Cool J and his wife of 24 years recently teamed up for a new campaign with American Cancer Society dubbed: “Beat Cancer Like a Boss.” In 2004, Simone was diagnosed with stage 3 chondrosarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer found in her right tibia bone. The treatment involved a 15-hour surgery to replace the bone and intense rehab. Today, Simone is celebrating almost 15 years of being cancer-free.
