The New York Daily News reported Tuesday that the couple were splitting after a “big fight over money.” They stated:
â€œDjimon walked out on Kimora,â€ says the source, who adds that the split may have been prompted by Simmonsâ€™ ex-husband, hip-hop mogulÂ Russell Simmonsâ€™ decision to stop funding the pairâ€™s lifestyle.
St. Louis-born â€œKimora lives as if sheâ€™s the Queen of England,â€ notes the source, although thereâ€™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.
But the 37-year-old beauty took to Twitter a day earlier (June 4) to deny all rumors.
“Wow, I put 1 of several properties I own (+ DONT live in) on the market & now apparently my whole life is fallin apart?! Smdh. Rumors, Rumors….,” she stated.
Simmons’ spokeswoman went on to say, “Kimora has a beautiful family life.”
Simmons and Hounsou began dating in March 2007 after her split from ex-husbandÂ Russell Simmons. The couple married in 2008 and have one child together, in addition to Simmons’ two daughters.
