Angela Simmons doesn’t want any parts surrounding the controversy with her uncle Russell Simmons. A few weeks ago news broke that Oprah is working on a documentary that focuses on Russell’s alleged inappropriate relationships while at Def Jam. ___________________________________________ “I’m not ever gonna get in between what’s going on with people. I’m going to stand by my family,” Simmons said exclusively to Bossip. “I’m not going to get in between all of that, it’s not my place. No one wants to see their family getting hurt. He has daughters.” ___________________________________________ She added: “My uncle knows what he’s done…but I don’t necessarily want to shine a light on that.”
