: MediaTakeOut.com has been telling you guys for MONTHS that Djimon and Kimora were divorcing. Most of you thought .. . NO . . . that can't possibly be happening. Well . . TOLD YA SO.
Actually they were never LEGALLY married, so we can't officially call it a divorce - but they are SEPARATING. What happened? Well MediaTaeOut.com spoke EXCLUSIVELY with someone FAMILIAR with the matter - and they say that Kimora felt that Djimon WAS NOT MAKING ENOUGH MONEY.
According to our insider, Russell Simmons agreed to an EXTREMELY generous divorce settlement with Kimora. Under the terms of their settlement, Russell would pay Kimora $2M a year for 4 years (half the length of their marriage), as alimony. Well that alimony money RAN OUT last month.
Kimora had expected that Djimon would get MORE ACTING ROLES and be able to support their family, but that didn't work out. Since marrying Kimmy, Djmon has only been able to get NON-LEADING roles, his biggest role since their marriage paid him 500K, but most paid significantly less.
Kim now realized that if she is going to LIVE THE LIFE OF FABULOSITY that she's used to, the couple would have to live off not only Djimon's earnings, but Kimora's savings, and the $30K a month she gets in child support from Russell.
Kimmy decided that she was NOT in the business of CARRYING AROUND DUDES . . . so she FIRED dude.
Don't believe us? Well here is what the NY Daily News is saying:
Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Hounsou aren’t as committed to each other as they used to be.
A source close to the couple tells us the glamazon and her “Gladiator” beau have split after a “big fight over money.”
“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.

This is what happens when the man focuses on having a so-called dime and a woman focuses on having a big daddy or sugar daddy; both parties forget about having a trustworthy, friendly, and loving relationship.
Even as a young girl, I had enough sense to not crave the most popular boy in the school; I normally went after the guy most girls ignored, which made me the winner in the long run because when the girls realized that the guy was a true winner, it was after he had claimed me.
People need to stop being shallow and superficial and seriously look at and deeply consider all things.
Yes, they were only in a "commitment ceremony" over in Africa. Never married here in the US. Im sure she never married because she knew those alimony checks would stop. I think most of us women can agree that we all thought she was a gold digger and was always about looking good and staying fab. She never gave off positives vibes as far as I saw. I wonder how her daughters are gonna turn out.
People who are consumed with money are going to be in some serious trouble when the Great Tribulation hits. One day money really won't be worth anything as well as gold and silver.
At one time, I was thinking about buying gold and silver, but I did away with that line of thinking because during the Great Tribulation, no one (even the so-called elite) will not be able to buy his or her way into or out of anything. This situation most occur so that God can magnify his name to all like he did when he sent Moses into Egypt to confront pharaoh. "Then they will have to know that I am Jehovah," say God.
So I guess she left out the part for, for better or worse, in her marriage vows. She is suppose to hold her man down and she could have did that by building him up or being proactive and becoming apart of his management team as an image consultant. She is so good at branding she could have branded his image.
And what about her business acumen, she has all that business experience she could have started her own label to rival Baby Phat since being fired. She knows the in and outs of the fashion world. I thought she was starting another business. She could have her own fashion house or fashion brand in stores, she could have started her own fashion school, her options are limitless, something is wrong with this picture.
But you dont throw you good African man out because his pockets are not fat enough. If she wants a billionaire then maybe she and a lot of other women need to have class with Naomi Campbell, she can teach some of these women a few tricks, but just know there is a price to pay.
You do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
Your statement is semi-true (depending on how one looks at it), which leaves me disappointed because black men long ago led their households with pride when they truly had everything stacked against them. The segregation thing was weird, but I guess it wasn't because blacks lived for and on "pride."
You are correct, for God tells man to keep his eye simple and to keep his eye on the prize, which is everlasting life. I have never envied anyway with riches, for riches do not buy true happiness and it does not guarantee one life without depression, sickness, and death--if only people knew or cared about what is coming up the pipeline.
How did i know the divorce was gonna be about money. Kimora was just using russell for his $500 million fortune. Run even camed out and said that kimora love russ money, more then she love russ. Kimora is used to living in the fab lane. But shes not really banking like she used to. Most of the money she made came from baby phat, and she sold baby phat in 2011. Her other lines are too expensive for most ppl. So she snagged that african dude thinking he was gonna support her lifestyle due to him getting that movie syar money. Now that he aint getting that movie star money she dont want him. Kimora is paid she got a networth of $50 million but only brings in $2-3 million a year. Forbidden Fruits by Isiah Hurts available on amazon.com, bn.com. but she cant afford to continue to live the fab lifeon her own no more like she used
LIES!!! THIS IS THE REAL STORY
Setting The Record Straight About Kimora & Djimon By Russell Simmons
Posted 1 hour 7 min ago by Russell Simmons
I called Kimora when I saw all the gossip spreading about her and Djimon splitting and she said it was a waste of energy to comment. Most people don't respond to the media's mischief, but it's my job since I own a website (GlobalGrind.com). And I'll certainly do it for her and my family.
The one question that I can't answer is what mean person would dedicate so much time and thought to fabricate so many false statements in one article? I don't know. Worse, what newspaper printed such unfounded rumors? Answer? The New York Daily News.
Anyhow, let me set the record straight.
1. Kimora and Djimon are fine.
2. Kimora and Djimon are both doing extremely well in their respective endeavors and businesses and don't need to fight over or waste energy on money issues.
3. I damn sure don't pay nor have I ever paid alimony (Kimora does just fine). In no way do I support their lifestyle, so please don't say they are fighting over MY money.
4. Yes she's selling a house, but she hasn't lived in it for several years since she built the house they currently reside in.
5. As for friction between us? There is none. I feel like I'm part of their family. Djimon and Kenzo are like my blood and Kimora is my best friend. We are partners in various businesses and in the really important business of raising our beautiful children.
So I hope this clears a few things up.

One question: Why does Russell feel the need to correct and speak on behalf on Kimora and Djimon? Let Djimon be the man of his household and speak for himself and his--he looks more like the warrior than Russell.
Actually they were never LEGALLY married, so we can't officially call it a divorce - but they are SEPARATING. -- MTO I'm glad you made this clear, so I wouldn't have to.
If this is true, NAS definitely got himself a bum deal. NAS is not making that paper like Russel Simmons, he has one child with his ex wife Kelis, yet he still has to pay her $50K a month in child support. Hopefully, NAS was able to get the payments lowered.
As for Kimora, it's a lot of women out here holding their man down. I hope she is not pushing a man away who genuinely loves and cares about her because of money. Kimora you better think twice chick. It's really hard to find good brothers out here today. If they are rich that is just a bonus. The nature and quality of the relationship it's self is what REALLY matters.
It's nice to know that Kimora and Russell have a nice relationship after divorcing one another, but I think I would have a problem with my lover's ex hanging around and stepping into our matters all the time.
To me, Russell's constant hanging around with Kimora and Djimon and his constant public announcements on their behalf makes him look like the man instead of Djimon. It looks like to me that Djimon walks in Russell's shadow, which is not good because (to me) it makes him look less of a man.
The money issue sounds like an excuse. Her family and friends must have been making fun if her hooking up and having child with someone who really has neither money or likes. Russell seems a little jealous for not wanting helping his exwife out but he has the right not to. Then it looks embarrassing on djimon....shacking up with a diva and her kids living off her ex husbands money. Just sad.
I never like that woman. She seemed a little too much on her show. This doesn't surprise me at all. She'll always be looking for a new man. Russell left her...now Dijimon. Looks will only last so long. Her values are screwed up.
These people were NEVER legally married so they can't possibly be
divorcing. Kimora is nothing but a rich baby mama. Call it what it is.
He didn't wife her and she didn't want to be wifed b/c she needs Russy's
alimony checks and a marriage makes that null and void. She's
really a skank.
"IF THIS IS TRUE"..... I damn sure don't feel sorry!! In fact it's funny! Black men think that other races of women will stick by them in hard times. Always talkin that shit bout black women just want to use them and spend all there money. * NOT ALL BLACK MEN* And to top it off this chick just being greedy she got bread and still want the lil bit he got. Wow just wow..
No problem. The mere fact that black woman made something out of nothing when her man was in the house and taken out of the house, makes me proud to be one. I don't think there is any other group of women who have had to struggle and survive like the black woman, and guess what? The black woman is having to go through another struggle: the all out war on her being, but as always, she will survive because God is on her side.
What people must realize is this: The white man and the black woman are the two most powerful people in this world.
she need to go chill somewhere cuz while she was spending russels money she was saving all her money...and she made quite a bit of it i rem wen they were touting her as another oprah upstart simply bcuz she was caking up like that...i see no reason to act like getting a 500k paycheck is something to shake a stick at...besides that dude still eatin from all the residuals from gladiator and blood diamond..among the dozens of other movies he's been in. dude is a onafide star in his own right wat she need to do is tone her lifestyle down, and maybe she wont have to look at him like an extra mouth to feed...i know they say dont believe everything you hear but if this is true that chick is just heartless lol
Told ya, it was some Heidi Klum Seal sh!t going on with these two!
Russell needs to STFU and keep the checks coming before Kimora put his ole azz on blast. She so money hungry that Bytch will put the whole Simons class in a tell all book. Starting with the fake Rev Run and end the book talking about how ho-ish Runs daughter are.
And the LGBT community is fighting for the right to marry.......smdh.....why??? And all of the people that are fighting so hard to stop them from having that right.....How bout you really stand for marriage and focus on the 50%+ divorce rate.......#ijs
I enjoyed reading your little tirade, but it's time for you to stop imagining conversations and get with the real one, for no one said that black men aren't worth anything. Maybe what is actually going on this thread is the fact that you are revealing the jealousy you have for your sistas and your sense of worthlessness as a black man--don't know where you got the negative talk against black men. C'mon now, sometimes you have got to live outside of your mind and stay on top of your self-esteem.
I always knew she was going to pull this... always heard the reason they were not legally married is so she could continue to collect alimony from Russell. KImora is a greedy, selfish bish; her poor children. Not only Kenzo; those girls had gotten used to this step-father too. But hey, for the love of money... and Djimon should have also known how she is.
From the outside this union never loked quite right. Everyone seemingly getting on fabulously but it always looked like Russell was running the show. A strong man like Djimon is only going to accept that for so long. It's inspired a good discussion though.
@webstedd Loving your comments right up until your white men and black women are the most most powerful in the world. Why would you even say it. Im proud of who I am but even I understand that the power has been attained largely through colonialism/colonisation/raping/pillaging. Where is the power in that? You don't see the supreme power that's required to survive against that? That's some "white man's burden" stuff right there
@Djimon Come to Australia baby. Kangaske it better ;-)
You are misinterpreting my comment, but no problem, I will expound further on it.
First and foremost, the black race (period) is super strong for surviving and thriving through the worst onslaught committed against mankind, but because the black woman was forced to survive without her man and live like a man, although she (like all other women) was made by God to be the weaker vessel to man. Off the top of my head, I can't think of any race of women who were mistreated so horribly as black women for such a long period of time, which puts her in another league.
You are correct that Mr. Charlie obtain his power through deceitful and evil ways, but the fact of the matter is that he holds ill-begotten worldwide power, which can only be erased or dismantled by God. Now, besides, the fact that black women displayed and is still showing sheer power through spiritual, mental, and physical toughness, she was forced (by Mr. Charlie) into a level or degree of power over herself and her household, which also turn out to be over her race. She (the black woman) unlike any other group of women or men, was allowed (by Mr. Charlie) to step before him to beg, to plead, or to state a case often times without a death wish repercussion. As our friend, the-_proverbial_hater likes to scream, she, more so than Ms. Sally, was allowed to get into Mr. Charlie's ear through pillow talk and sometimes able to convince him to do some abnormal things for her, her children, or her extended families behalf (Cleopatra had this kind of power over the Roman men--for sometime, she was able to save her country Egypt). Long ago and still today, Mr. Charlie will employ and speak with Shaneka before he employ or speak with Leroy, basically, Mr. Charlie forces and puts Shaneka in the power position of a man--no other woman throughout the history of mankind has been treated like the black woman for such a long period of time.
Last, but just as important to remember, long ago in history unlike any other race of women, black women ruled over nations and countries until the Greeks and Romans dominated the world and slowly eroded and turned ruler ship (predominantly) into a patriarchal throne.
Kimmora, has always been a golddigger. She played Russ out of his money and formed a GHETTO, tacky clothing line, then she divoreced him because she wanted a darker baby, (who is she fooling), she acts like she doesn't even have other kids, it is so sad. He is ugly to me, she could have picked a fine African man imo. Russ, is tired of being played by her and them living off him, I know I would be. Russ, got played by this trick. She has a bad attitude, she treats everyone like crap, and like she is the queen. I hope she falls flat on her face, I usually wouldn't wish this on anyone. I just don't like this scheming ugly broad!
THESE NAPPY HEADS ARE HAPPY LIKE HE LEAVING HER FOR ONE OF THEM!!! ANYWAY ISH HAPPENS, BUT I CAN ASSURE YOU HE WON'T GO TO BLACK WOMEN!!! BLACK WOMEN SELF ESTEEM REARS IT'S UGLY HEAD AGAIN!! THESE TRAMPS ARE SO MISERABLE, THEY MAKE FACES AND LAUGH AT THEIR KIDS WHEN THEY LOCK EM IN THE CAR!!! IF I COULD BEAT EM ALL WITH A CHICKEN BONE TRUST AND BELIEVE I WOULD!!!
MLKJR AND MALCOLM X HAD WHITE QUEENS ON THEIR ARMS
ALL UP IN YA!!!
they were only in a "commitment ceremony" over in Africa. Never married here in the US. Im sure she never married because she knew those alimony checks would stop.
True golddigger, smh. She is sooo fake, fake attitude, lifestyle, etc...
@webstedd OK thanks for the clarification. Assuming you don't mask, I don't pick you as the type to praise white men over black men so yes I did misinterpret your comment. I would further expand to say women of colour because there are many, worldwide and through history who have shared similar experiences. Like anyone I've got my opinions, many of which are inappropriate to voice because 1. I'm not American and 2. I'm not black. So I'll just ask the questions. You suggest that Mr Charlie, as you Americans say, puts or forces black women in this position of power. Do you think maybe he might do this because he sees his real threat as the black man and this is maybe one way of getting at him? It also sounds to me that you're suggesting that black women have gained and sustain their power over white men through their female wiles. That black women have power over white women with regards to their white man? Is that really where you want to go with this?
To be honest, black men dropped themselves when they dropped their women (not speaking of all black men, but a large number of them). For so many centuries, Mr. Charlie tried to erase black love, but Kameka and Bay-Bay continued to fight for it, but as soon as Mr. Charlie indirectly gave Bay-Bay permission to mess around with Ms. Sally, Bay-bay dove in head first and said, "bump Kameka." I have always warned the Bay-Bays to not feel so high and mighty over Kameka, for he would be falling into a trap, but a large number of them allowed and are allowing a short lived high to blind-side them, which may be detrimental to them in the long run because they will have lost their best ally. Everyone in the world has come to realize that black people set the tone and trends for things, and if black women as a whole start to degrade or turn away from something or someone, then all other women will eventually follow suit-- go ask Mr. (dumb) Wesley Snipes and Mr. (smart) Denzel Washington. Yet, I want to say this: A large number of black women still love the Bay-Bays--at least I do :-).
If you go back and read my post, I never said that other women were never mistreated, but what I carefully repeated over and over in my post, is that black women as a whole were and are the only race of women to consistently and constantly be horribly mistreated for long periods of time, which includes these present days.
Oh, yes, I would say that Mr. Charlie put black women in power as a result of viewing black men as a threat, but the point I was making and proving is that black women were and are forced into powerful roles that they did not request. You say that there are other women of color who went through similar things as black women, but I can't think of any other race of women ( in history) who were systematically and intentionally deprived of their men all the way up until this day.
Oh, I need and must clear something that you are seeming to suggest: black women got power due to her wiles over white men. No, I am not truly suggesting or alluding to this act, for a lot of black women did not sleep with or try to seduce Mr. Charlie, so it would not be totally correct for one to rely on that word (wiles)--I think cleverness and canniness are words that best fit this situation. As far as black women having more power than white women over white men, I don't know if I want to go down that road either, but I will take another road by saying this: Black women never asked white men for any kind of power--he either forced it on her or gave it to her, so you have to use discernment (based on history) to answer your question, for I am just in the business to share some truth.
@webstedd OK cleverness and canniness - wiles. You say tomato etc. It's my personal opinion that none of us women have the power. Men run the world. So in that way I also don't subscribe to your thoughts on white men putting black women into positions of power over black men and all other women. I was merely playing devils advocate. Like I said before I'm limited in what I might be able to say but I do like to hear your opinion. And that's what it is. An opinion.
Before I go to bed, my friend, I want to inform you that I, with great passion, hate what was done to you when you were pursuing your love ( career)--they knew you were a threat to the throne, but don't worry, the lads I engage on a daily basis will hear and learn about you--promise.
If you let go of your internal beef and insecurity, you should be able to determine from my post, that I never said that black women held any power over anyone--crap, they don't hold power over themselves, please let go of the insecurity and so you can read and understand what I was saying in my post (also, look up the definition of whiles and cleverness and you will learn that there is a slight difference in the two words. I did not say that there were no black women who did not try seduction, but I did say that all of them did not sleep or seduce Mr. Charlie--seems to me that you are striving to dim the lights on black women--wonder why, especially--if you a non-black woman--never walked in their shoes).
Oh, I was aware of the fact that you were playing devils advocate, just like I hope you were aware of the fact that I played Brer Rabbit and acted like I did not know, so that I could get the opportunity to share some truth with individuals who may be ignorant of historical facts or events, so we both played possum, and you are right, I can have an opinion, which can possibly inform or educate someone without one.
As I previously said in an earlier post, it's a burden to have to make individuals like yourself feel comfortable being around me due to some type of insecurity on your part.
I'm retiring, so sleep tight, and I'll see you on a thread tomorrow.
Oh yeah, before I officially log off, I want to say that I knew you would wait a long time to respond to me (hoping I left the thread so that you can take an uncontested jab at me, which you and others on these threads do), so I purposely hung around on the thread to meet you head on, so I guess you can say what I did was clever not some type of wile, and my moves on this thread tonight are the types of moves black women made long ago and today to survive without "the forbidden protection" of their men--I'm out.
@webstedd You're paranoid. I dont know if your paranoia extends beyond MTO or not. I hope not. I'm having a conversation with you not challenging you. We go back a little while and we were good but something shifted and now we're not. The little I know of you is you're a gifted athlete and I love the passion you have for your people but kind of sick of you talking at me sideways. Your opinions are just that, opinions. Not facts or truths. The sooner you realise that the better off you'll be. You don't intimidate me or make me feel insecure. I dont even know you. How would that be possible? You know I'm not a racist. You know where my personal interests lay. You know I don't mean you ill will but still the paranoia. Don't come on here tomorrow crapping on about how I'm coming at you after you go to bed. There's a time difference and I'm at work. I don't like arguing with you and I tried. So I officially give up. I can't be bothered any more. Truly people from other countries can really learn from each other and it can be very rewarding. Unfortunately not in this case. Good night
@DaGreat1 Good evening darling and you have a good night too
To be a woman, you are definitely coming on strong like a man (check the tone of voice you are using with me), for you are a man hiding behind a mask--c'mon, I'm sure the people can determine the same thing.
Yes, I love my people, but don't get it twisted, for I am a lover of all people, especially the underdog. For someone like yourself to be married to one of my people, you sure allow yourself to get "bent out of shape" when I talk about a certain group of my people (black women). If what I say is not true or is an opinion, why do you allow yourself to get irritated by someone's personal thoughts? Oh, I know, there is some truth to those thoughts, which you have to internally "reckon" with. Did I lie about Cleopatra? Did I lie about the black male being snatched away from his woman and children long ago? Did I lie about the black male being disenfranchised? Did I lie about Mr. Charlie ruling the world--regardless of how he achieved power? Your comment about males running the world tickled me a little because everyone knows that white males rule the world--it's an unfair fact but it's a true fact (you, as a white woman, should know this, but the fact that you are disputing this truth lets me know you are not a white woman, so stop trying to insult my intelligence because I'm not one of those bimbos you must be use to engaging).
No, I do not know you personally, but what I have gathered about you is that you are self-centered and egotistical--you feel that you must be right at all cost, especially since you came from a small degree of privilege, but what you must understand about my kind is that some of us might be from rat infested holes, but a number of us are getting some worldly and spiritual knowledge in those holes.
What you don't understand is that I recognize your kind (insecure and chauvinistic males) due my close association with black men in the hood and in the ivory towers (thank goodness the brothas taught me something) who taught me to be on guard for sucka punches, which I have recognized is at the top of your arsenal, for you like to sneak people and pull a Judas when you can't get your way--weak moves, especially against a woman.
To be truthful, nothing went wrong in our previous blogs, except the fact I wrongly rubbed you with some truth, and if it's not the truth, then put forth your disclaimer or sit down so that you can wipe the sweat of hate that is oozing from your pores.
No hate here; you're still cool.
