Insiders confide to the media that the two have split due to financial reasons and a troubled marriage.

One of Black Hollywood’s favorite couples may have called it quits. Kimora Lee Simmons, the equally famous ex-wife to Hop Hop mogul Russell Simmons, may be ending her five year relationship with actor Djimon Hounsou. According to numerous reports, the two have separated and have been having troubles in the marriage for quite some time.

The news of the couple’s possible demise was tipped of to the NY Daily News by an unnamed source. The source claims the couple have been having serious issues and problems that stem from financial issues and continuous money problems. Despite Kimora Lee Simmons’ celebrated display of a fabulous and wealthy lifestyle, the source suggests that the couple had really been living the lifestyle on Russell Simmons’ dime.

The same source reveals that the money problems came quickly after Kimora’s ex husband Russell Simmons decided against sharing his wealthy with the couple any longer:

“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 pair’s lifestyle.”

After recently listing her $5.9 million home on the market for $4.7 million, rumors began to circulate that the JustFab.com CEO was having money problems.

But Kimora took to Twitter to shoot down the rumors of money problems:

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

When she failed to mention anything about the rumors of the couple’s separation, the source’s revelations have gotten a lot harder to dismiss.

Kimora’s publicist isn’t helping the rumors, as when asked about Kimora’s marriage, she simply responded:

“Kimora has a beautiful family life.”

Djimon’s publicist reportedly only told the media that he is away in Vancouver working for a few months.

Since nothing has been confirmed yet, the reports continue to be merely speculation.


  1. I have been hearing on the gossip side of things that these two were having a lot of problems. There have also been rumors that he hasn’t been faithful either and the side chick apparently tweeted Kimora the dirty details. So if this is true, it was only a matter of time. I wish both the best though.

  2. I hope this isn’t true. I always thought they were so cute together. But you know they say once you get divorced, it’s even harder to have a successful marriage with someone else. Things happen and marriage is tough.

  3. I follow this chick on Twitter and she still hasn’t said a thing about her husband. She did however mention that she isn’t having money problems, I guess it’s just like Kimora to think her bank account’s reputation is more important than her marriage’s reputation.

  4. It was only a matter of time. Kimora is too self absorbed to make a marriage work with anyone. Anyone can watch her show and see how shallow she is. And shallow people don’t fair well in marriage.

  5. This wasn’t going to work because she makes more money than him. This chick obviously likes being taken care of, not taking care of! Add rumors of cheating on top of that and these two are done. If not now, eventually anyway.

  6. No one knows if this is even true or not yet, the writer even tagged this to Gossip. Calm down people. It really seems like people are just excited at the thought that another black marriage failed. What is wrong with people?

  7. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was true. Just like some of the other posters said, there have been a lot of rumors swirling around that Djimon is not faithful. I think a woman like Kimora can get on a man’s nerves after a certain time. Like a woman can be too fabulous and after a while, a man just wants a more down to earth woman. Kimora certainly isn’t that and she doesn’t even come off like the wife type. She’s too busy being cute and shopping.

  8. No offense, but who would he cheat with though? Kimora is a former model and very fabulous. And then she has money and a wealthy ex. I can’t see how any side chick is worth messing that up for?

    1. It would be a woman who is the exact opposite of Kimora. She’d be low maintenance, down to earth, and better sexually. That is how these men do. It’s the women we consider downgrading by their physical appearance, but to a man their personality is a total upgrade. Looks aren’t everything.

    2. Oh you guys are so on it honey. The forums are saying it’s a chick named Kola Boof. She’s an ex and apparently been coming at Kimora’s neck on Twitter. I would put a link on here but it got be banned from another website. I won’t risk it on here. lol. Google it honey.

        1. Oh I disagree. I think Kola Boof is beautiful! She’s got a warm complexion, a pretty smile, huge jugs and a nice body. She is a beautiful African woman. I guess because she’s Black and older than Kimora you don’t see her as attractive. She’s also an award winning novelist.

          1. Please miss me with the “you don’t think she’s attractive because she’s black” BS. I’m a dark skinned and beautiful BLACK WOMAN. You are too old to come at me with weak arguments. Kola Boof is NOT attractive. She looks likes she is possessed by demons and always looks crazy. I searched for hours to find a decent picture of that woman, but I came up short because she is not attractive! Her breasts sag, not to mention the way she talks on Twitter. I have never seen a black woman alive tweet such profane things about their own race on Twitter. So you can praise that atrocious woman with the sagging breasts, but miss me with the complexion debate. It’s played and I know thousands of dark skinned women more attractive than Kola’s unattractive self.

  9. People don’t stay married in Hollywood. Especially not Kimora. She’s too much of a diva to stay married. And yes ladies, you can be too fabulous. Keep p-ssing glitter and end up alone.

    1. You mean she’s a bigger slut? Got it. I’m so tired of Kola’s paid groupies commenting and telling the same lies on any blog that mentions her. Ain’t nothing pretty about that witch looking former prostitute. Find a better career.
