They are the parents of two daughters: 8-year-old Ming Lee and 5-year-old Aoki Lee. Kimora, star of her own E! reality show “Life in the Fab Lane,” is seeking legal and physical custody of the children.

The rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris, must complete at least 1,000 hours of a total 1,500 hours of community service, talking to kids about the pitfalls of guns, gangs and drugs. Following the community service, he’ll be sentenced to serve about 12 months in prison, officials said. His prison time could be increased or reduced, depending on his fulfillment of the terms of the deal and good behavior, they said. Dressed in a gray business suit, the 27-year-old pleaded guilty Thursday to possession of an unregistered firearm, possession of machine guns and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. T.I. was charged with possession of unregistered machine guns and silencers, as well as possession of firearms by a convicted felon following his Oct. 13 arrest in an ATF sting in Atlanta. He faced a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count.
