Kimora Lee Simmons Shops with Her Girls—and Buys Nothing

When Kimora Lee Simmons heads to Beverly Hills with her daughters to do some shopping, you might expect some serious damage to be done. The Amex black card will spontaneously combust from overuse or something.

But that’s not what happened on Wednesday when Kimora went out with the girls, Ming Lee, 12, and Aoki Lee, 10. It appears that the trio was just doing some…wait for it…window-shopping. Maybe the girls aren’t as spoiled as they appeared to be on their reality show, “Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane.”

The paparazzi captured Simmons and the girls strolling down the street, with Mom on her ever-present cell phone. Kimora wore a pair of wild printed leggings, a black printed T-shirt and leather motorcycle jacket. With a pair of Christian Louboutin strappy stilettos putting her well over 6 feet, Kimora carried a black leather Hermes Birkin bag.

Her equally trending little girls wore a pair of black leggings teamed with a white tasseled top for Ming and for Aoki, gray trousers and a matching sweater featuring a bow print.

Apparently left at home was her 3-year-old son, Kenzo Lee, that she had with actor Djimon Hounsou. It’s not exactly clear what’s going on with Kimora and Hounsou. In June, the gossip columns reported that the two had split up—the Daily News said it was after “a big fight over money.” Reports had Russell Simmons, Kimora’s ex-husband, pledging to no longer support their lavish lifetstyle.

According to, Hounsou had been working in Vancouver for the past few months, and Kimora’s people said only that “Kimora has a beautiful family life.”

When Kimora sold her Beverly Hills home at a $1.2 million loss, reports surfaced that she was cash strapped. But Lee didn’t take too kindly to those rumors, saying on Twitter, “Wow, I put 1 of several properties I own (+ DONT live in) on the market & now apparently my whole life is fallin apart?!” adding, “Rumors, Rumors…”
