Leave it to your ex, to accidentally or intentionally ‘out’ you.

Love has found it’s way back into the life of Russell Simmons’ ex wife, Kimora Lee Simmons.


The 38-year-old fashion mogul has been dating Tim Leissner and according to Russell, the two are actually married.  Kimora and Russell ended their marriage after 11 years of marriage, but have two children together, Ming Lee (born in 200) and Aoki Lee (born in 2002).

Kimora also has a son, Kenzo Lee, with ex-boyfriend Djimon Hounsou. Throughout the years, both Russell and Kimora have shared Christmas together, along with their respective boos and children.

Last Christmas, Kimora brought along her Tim. Reportedly, Tim is pretty wealthy business man who works in investment banking (Goldman Sachs to be exact). This week, Russell responded to a report by Gossip Cop, tweeting:

All of us love @OfficialKimora but the fact is she is happily married.. Tim has been family for awhile now.

The term ‘awhile now’, leads us to believe that their marriage isn’t necessarily as new as we think. If Kimora and Tim are legally married, this will be Kimora’s second legal marriage, as she and Djimon were never legally married. No official statement has yet been released from Kimora or Tim. Congrats to the happy couple! [The YBF]
