Good news ladies! Hunky African actor Djimon Hounsou is back on the market after reportedly splitting from his ball and chain, Kimora Lee.
A source told the NY Daily News’ Gatecrasher that Kimora and her “Gladiator” hubby have split after a “big fight over money.”
It seems the Dopamine faded long ago for Hounsou, 48, and Kimora, 37, who “aren’t as committed to each other as they used to be.
“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 the bisexual 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.
A source told the Daily News that “Kimora and Djimon were fighting on New Year’s Eve” and Kimora stuck Djimon with watching their 3 kids while she socialized with her ex-husband (Russell).
“He is a calm, super-nice person and she’s such a diva,” the source told Gatecrasher. “I couldn’t believe they got together in the first place.”
It was just a matter of time.
