Kimora and Russell: SPLITSVILLE!

March 31, 2006

Kimora and Russell: SPLITSVILLE!

Are we at all surprised? Not really. Someone had just sent me a tip earlier this morning that Kimora and Stephon Marbury dined together at Justin’s on Wednesday.

Rap mogul Russell Simmons and his wife Kimora Lee Simmons are splitting, a rep for Kimora confirms to PEOPLE. An announcement is expected later today. A spokesperson for Russell had no comment. Russell, 48, and Kimora, 30, married in 1998 and have two daughters: Ming Lee Simmons, 6, and Aoki Lee Simmons, 3. Both girls model for Baby Phat Clothing, Kimora’s offshoot of her husband’s Phat Farm clothing line.

The former Kimora Lee, whose father is African-American and mother is Japanese-American, was a model, for Chanel and others, when she began dating Simmons, a cofounder of Def Jam Records. The pair met in November 1992 during New York City’s Fashion Week. She was 17 and about to finish high school; he was 35 and a self-admitted ladies man.

Now that’s fabulosity.

More Whitney Drama

More Whitney Drama

It looks like the drama keeps going and going for Nippy. Is she on the run? Is she preggers? Who knows. All we can do is watch and pray along with Mary J. Blige.

Troubled pop superstar Whitney Houston — once a bigger seller than Madonna — is running out of cash. Insiders tell me she is literally broke, with no current income and huge expenses. Not only that: Whitney’s life is such a dismal mess that, according to sources, her daughter, Bobbi Kristina, is living with Whitney’s brother Gary and sister-in-law, Pat, close to Houston’s home in Atlanta.
And it just keeps getting worse: A local Atlanta lawyer told me yesterday that he recently had housemates Whitney and ’80s pop star Cherelle (real name Cheryl Week Norton) evicted from the luxury townhouse he’d rented to the latter last fall. Houston’s name was not on the lease, but the landlord says she was living there and has witnesses to back him up. Now the landlord says he’s about to sue both women for about $17,000 in back rent and about $8,000 in damages for the mess they left behind. That includes carpets and furniture ruined by burn marks and broken windows. The papers will be filed shortly, he tells me. (continue reading) Thanks Yllona 🙂

Dancer Gives Details of Ordeal

Dancer Gives Details of Ordeal

I wasn’t aware of this incident until earlier this evening while checking my email (I told you I hate to do it) but I feel like I had to do a post about it. I reach a lot of you guys and I feel like you should know about this if you don’t already. Usually I try to keep things light around here. But sometimes we have to stop laughing and begin to discuss events going on other than Vivica Fox’s hard breast.

The woman who says she was raped last week by three members of the Duke University lacrosse team thought she would be dancing for five men at a bachelor party, she said Friday. But when she arrived that night, she found herself surrounded by more than 40.
Just moments after she and another exotic dancer started to perform, she said, men in the house started barking racial slurs. The two women, both black, stopped dancing.
“We started to cry,” she said. “We were so scared.”
Forty-six members of the men’s lacrosse team submitted DNA samples Thursday in the unusual case. As of late Friday, there had been no arrests. Duke officials briefed university staff Friday on the allegations, and authorities vowed to crack the team’s wall of solidarity. “We’re asking someone from the lacrosse team to step forward,” Durham police Cpl. David Addison said. “We will be relentless in finding out who committed this crime.” (continue)

Naomi Campbell Arrested After Argument

Naomi Campbell Arrested After Argument Update

The supermodel, twice before accused of striking employees with telephones, was arrested Thursday at her New York City home for the alleged assault of a housekeeper whom Campbell said she’d fired hours earlier.

Campbell, 35, was taken into custody at 11:30 a.m. (ET), and booked on second-degree assault, New York City Police spokesman Lieutenant Gene White said. The professional poser could be arraigned in court as soon as the afternoon.

The unidentified housekeeper, a 41-year-old woman, was treated at Lenox Hill Hospital for lacerations to the head, White said. At 8:30 a.m., according to police, the woman was struck in the back of the head “by an object” at Campbell’s residence. The woman left the home, and went to the hospital for treatment. The hospital alerted police to the purported assault.
When asked if the offending “object” was a telephone, White said he didn’t know. An Associated Press report cited police as saying a telephone had been used in the alleged attack. (continue at Yahoo)

T.I. & Tiny: Together Again

Now that’s love, black love. I guess.

Mark Twain once said: “The Rumours of my demise have been greatly exaggerated,” well, the same can be said for Hip Hop’s royal couple Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and Tip “T.I.” Harris. Sorry to break the news ladies, but they were together last night at Vision for T.I.’s album release party. It was like they never left. T.I. and Tiny showed up together as if the news of their breakup hadn’t reached them yet. I wish I could say I told you so, but I can’t. I believed the hype too. Some may chalk this up as just another publicity stunt to sell records. But we should applaud T.I. and Tiny for keeping their family together in spite of all the rumors, innuendo and groupies behind every hotel door. Their relationship has stood the test of time. And that’s a beautiful thing! (Sandra Rose)

Busta Rhymes Makes A Scene After Being Tapped On The Shoulder By Gay Man

Busta Rhymes caused a scene in Miami Beach early Sunday when he went off on a gay man who tapped him on the shoulder to get his attention. According to the New York Post, Rhymes and his bodyguards were at the 11th Street Diner in Miami Beach early Sunday morning when the incident occurred. Located next door to popular gay club Twist, the restaurant was “packed with transvestites, gay men and drag queens, which obviously made Busta a little edgy,” eyewitness Thomas Barker wrote in an e-mail to the paper. “This became evident when a young gay guy came up behind Busta and tapped him on the shoulder to congratulate the rapper on his recent comeback,” Barker wrote. “Before the guy could even mutter a word, Busta turned around and repeatedly screamed, ‘Why the f*** you touchin’ me, man? Get the f*** away from me.'” (Continue at Eurweb)
