When Russell Simmons isn’t giving Jay-Z a virtual schooling for his comments on Occupy Wall Street, the music and media mogul is putting his lavish penthouse up for sale. Simmons, 54, recently listed his downtown New York City duplex for a staggering $11 million after previously almost selling the digs to Diddy. The home was previously featured on an episode of “MTV Cribs” when the exec was married to Kimora Lee Simmons. Simmons proudly boasted about the penthouse’s close proximity to the Twin Towers just before tragedy struck on Sept. 11, 2001. Located in the city’s Financial District, the home has since been renovated and features four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a staff room and a library. It also has a spacious chef’s kitchen with a breakfast nook and 12-foot ceilings as well as 3,500-square-feet of exterior space for those wanting to overlook the city.
