Djimon’s rep also released an official statement to PEOPLE stating: Djimon Hounsou and Kimora Lee Simmons have officially separated after 5½ years. Though never married, they have one child together, Kenzo Lee Hounsou, who is 3½ years old.
According to reports in 2008, the couple was married in a traditional commitment ceremony in Benin (Djimon’s native country) and he was even billed as her husband on her reality show, “Life in the Fab Lane”, however the two were never legally married in the United States.
Meanwhile, one of Kimora’s followers tweeted to her: Oh dear it’s so sad when people look up 2 u, this is the worst thing 2 happen. Makes us think “marriage” means nothing 2day
And she responded: Quite the opposite. It means I am like u. We all go through things. We do the best we can. We keep our heads #UP.
