Nov 22, 2012 – Kimora Lee Simmons Confirms Split From Husband Djimon Hounsou

Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Hounsou have split after more than five years together. The Life In The Fab Lane star, 37, and the Amistad actor, 48, have a son, Kenzo Lee Hounsou.

‘Djimon Hounsou and Kimora Lee Simmons have officially separated after 5 and a half years,’ the actor’s spokesperson told People.

In a message to fans on her Twitter page, the former model said the pair had been apart for ‘some time.’

She wrote: ‘There have been quite a few hurtful rumors circulating. The truth is Djimon + I have been separated for some time. We have remained happy, loving, co-parenting friends + family.

‘We all have much to be thankful for.’ She signed off: ‘#HappyThanksgiving’

Rumours of a split between the pair first emerged back in June his year.

According to the New York Daily News, Honsou walked out on Simmons after ‘a big fight over money’.

Reports also claimed Simmons’ former husband, hip-hop mogul Russel Simmons, decided to stop funding the pair’s lifestyle.

The Trulia Luxe Living blog reported that Kimora was selling her Beverly Hills home at a $1.2m loss.

Representatives for both Honsou and Simmons at the time were keeping quiet about the alleged split.

Honsou’s agents told the actor has been working in Vancouver for the past few months, and Simmons’ people responded only that ‘Kimora has a beautiful family life’.

Simmons also denied she was facing financial difficulty on Twitter, saying

“Wow, I put 1 of several properties I own (+ DONT live in) on the market & now apparently my whole life is fallin apart?!” adding, “Rumors, Rumors …”
The pair met in 2007 following her split from husband Russell Simmons.
