Trouble in Paradise for Dijon Mustard & Kimora Lee Simmons

69

June 5, 2012 by The ReadyWriter


According to a source reporting to the New York Daily News, the loving couple have split after a “big fight over money” and “Djimon walked out on Kimora,” says the source; who adds that the split may have been prompted by Simmons’ ex-husband, hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons’ decision to stop funding the couple’s lifestyle.

St. Louis-born “Kimora lives as if she’s the Queen of England,” notes the source, although there’s at least one sign her life in the “fab lane” may be slowing to a crawl; Simmons, 37, creative director and president of the shopping website JustFab.com, is unloading her modest (by celeb standards) six-bedroom, eight-bath Beverly Hills country home at a loss.

Simmons reportedly paid $5.9 million for the home at the height of the market in 2007 and has now listed it for just $4.7 million.

On Monday, Simmons responded via Twitter to speculation the house sale was a sign of financial difficulty… and so what if it is.

“Wow, I put 1 of several properties I own (+ DONT live in) on the market & now apparently my whole life is falling apart?!” she tweeted. “Rumors, Rumors …”

Simmons began dating the 48-year-old Hounsou, from Benin, Africa, in March 2007 after separating in 2006 from Simmons. The two were married for 10 years and have two daughters, Ming , 12, and Aoki , 9. They divorced in 2009.

In summer 2008, Simmons and Hounsou participated in a traditional Beninese commitment ceremony. In May 2009, their son Kenzo Lee Hounsou was born. He just celebrated his third birthday.

    wow. no surprise at all. russell is too rich and seemingly has a great influence on kimora, even after they’ve divorced. the next man has to be prepared for being “a wheel” because baby daddy or ex-husband will always come first, whether they have a good relationship or a schitty one…the ex or baby daddy will come before you. life’s a bish and then you die.

    No man wants to be around his current wife ex-husband all the time. She could never let that go and a lot of girls that are molested by older men such as herself with her ex-husband have that issue. She should have been by herself for awhile and then moved on. Russell Simmons and her mother damaged her. Russell because he is a pedofile and her mother because she allowed it to happen for money.

    I believe her and Russell’s marriage was a business arrangement. Which is why Kimora didn’t own Baby Phat, she was employed there and is no longer employed there. She was the face of Baby Phat and Russell sold it a long time ago. The clothing company was a pre-marital asset, so likely no half of the sale for her. People always think celebrites are richer than they actually are.

    Russell address the rumor::

    “While Kimora never mentions Dijmon directly her ex husband Russell Simmons posted on his own website,

    1. Kimora and Djimon are fine.
    2. Kimora and Djimon are both doing extremely well in their respective endeavors and businesses and don’t need to fight over or waste energy on money issues.
    3. I damn sure don’t pay nor have I ever paid alimony (Kimora does just fine). In no way do I support their lifestyle, so please don’t say they are fighting over MY money.
    4. Yes she’s selling a house, but she hasn’t lived in it for several years since she built the house they currently reside in.
    5. As for friction between us? There is none. I feel like I’m part of their family. Djimon and Kenzo are like my blood and Kimora is my best friend. We are partners in various businesses and in the really important business of raising our beautiful children.

    And so there you have it.”
