Fans were bummed to learn of the split of one-time fave couple, Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Hounsou. Certainly African author and self-proclaimed ex Osama Bin Laden lover Kola Boof hasn’t helped with her Twitter rant claiming she is the reason behind the split. Now more truth is emerging, as Djimon confirms rumors that he and Kimora NEVER married.
According to PEOPLE:
It’s over for Djimon Hounsou and Kimora Lee Simmons.
“Djimon Hounsou and Kimora Lee Simmons have officially separated after 5½ years,” the actor’s rep tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Though never married, they have one child together, Kenzo Lee Hounsou, who is 3½ years old.”
“There have been quite a few hurtful rumors circulating. The truth is Djimon + I have been separated for some time,” Simmons tweeted Wednesday. “We have remained happy, loving, co-parenting friends + family. We all have much to be thankful for.”
Let’s hope the split really goes as smooth as Kimora claims.... at least for the babies sake!
