The recent arrest of hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons' wife Kimora Lee is providing ideal material for the rapper's new COURT TV series.

The American show HIP-HOP JUSTICE investigates whether law enforcement unjustly targets rappers - and could prove the perfect forum for Russell's spouse to claim her innocence, following her arrest on 25 July (04) for reckless driving and drug possession.

Russell tells gossip site PAGESIX.COM, "I am always looking for new material for my new show, but I didn't think my family would be candidates."
