A source told the NY Daily News’ Gatecrasher that Kimora and her “Gladiator” hubby 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 his wife’s lifestyle.
Rumors swirled when Simmons recently put her six-bedroom, eight-bath Beverly Hills country home on the market for less than what she paid for it in 2007.
The home listing fueled speculation that Kimora was going broke. But Kimora took to her twitter page to deny the rumors:
“Wow, I put 1 of several properties I own (+ DONT live in) on the market & now apparently my whole life is fallin apart?!” she tweeted. “Rumors, Rumors …”
But when the NY Daily News reached out to Hounsou’s rep for a comment, the rep informed them the actor was “working in Vancouver for the past few months.”
Hounsou, from Benin, Africa, began dating Kimora in March 2007.
In 2008 the couple participated in a traditional African ceremony which was attended by their families. The couple denied the ceremony was a wedding.
We just hope it's not true.
