There have been rumors about Kimora Lee Simons and Djimon Hounsou splitting before. This time, unfortunately, there’s official confirmation. Kimora tweeted:
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.#HappyThanksgiving
Djimon’s rep released the following statement:
“Djimon Hounsou and Kimora Lee Simmons have officially separated after 5½ years. Though never married, they have one child together, Kenzo Lee Hounsou, who is 3½ years old.”
In addition to Kenzo, Kimora has two daughters from her marriage to Russell Simmons. Not the most upbeat holiday news, but I understand why celebs release it at this time of year: most people aren’t paying much attention to the news. Kimora’s tweet suggests they are co-parenting well together, so that’s good news.
