Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Hounsou allegedly split over “money issues”
When I first read this story, I don’t know if I believed it or not but in Hollywood anything could happen.
The NY Daily News is reporting that the famous couple has thrown in the towel over—money? Now both of them are insanely rich, so I don’t know the validity of this so I will give you some pieces about what NYD is saying:
“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.
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.
On Thursday, the Trulia Luxe Living blog said Simmons, 37, the creative director and president of shopping web site JustFab.com, was 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.
“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 …”
Yet reps for both Simmons and Hounsou sidestepped discussing the state of their relationship.
Simmons’ spokeswoman said only that “Kimora has a beautiful family life.”
Hounsou’s rep emailed that he couldn’t “liase” with us until after deadline because he was taking a plane from L.A. to New York.
In response to our request for comment on the break-up, he wrote, “Djimon’s been working in Vancouver for the past few months.”
Ok, so why was Russell paying for their lifestyle anyways when they have money….
So did they split or not? We are saying 50/50 chance.
