Many people assumed the couple was already divorced, but apparently they weren't. Kimora Lee Simmons has reportedly officially filed for divorce yesterday (3/26) from her husband, the hip hop mogul Russel Simmons. TMZ obtained court papers that stated Kimora filed for divorce in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Wednesday citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the break-up. Kimora is asking for both legal and physical custody of the couple's two daughters but is apparently not asking for any spousal support. Simmons reportedly filed for divorce in March of 2006, but in August of 2007 Kimora told OK! Magazine that they weren't divorced yet and "who knows" what will happen, now, we do. Russel and Kimora haven't made their new relationships a secret as Russel is dating model Porschla Coleman and Kimora is with actor Djimon Hounsou. Russel released a statement saying "Although I haven't read the papers, I'm excited for closure on this issue. I love her to death and I will always wish her happiness and success." The two continue to work together in business where Kimora is acting creative director and President of Phat Fashions, overseeing her Baby Phat line. No word on how the couple's assets will be dealt with.
