Usually when there's the name Ronson and a meltdown in the same sentence you expect to see Lindsay Lohan's name somewhere too, but this time it was Russell Simmons that  had a fit - at Charlotte Ronson's show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Friday.

"When I walked in here, there was like 40 seats," Simmons was heard griping. "Now, there's nothing. Where am I supposed to sit?"

When the girl didn't reply promptly enough the hip-hop king, who preaches the benefit of the calming effect of his yoga prowess, angrily demanded, "Where's your boss? Where's the lady in charge? Who do I have to talk to? Come on now."

After talking to the head seater of the show, Simmons was still not pacified, and let her have it. In the midst of the tirade the staffer asked him to "please calm down" which prompted Simmons to fume "I am calm! I'm a calm person!"

Fortunately, seconds before the show started, the seater cleared two seats for Simmons, who sat down with such force he caused his neighbors to jump.

Perhaps a little more time in the yoga studio would center him better!
