What’s up with celebs sneaking and tying the knot behind our backs? First Kerry Washington gave us the surprise of a lifetime when she secretly married NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha, then Zoe Saldana followed in her footsteps and said “I do” to Italian artist Marco Perego, and now Kimora Lee Simmons added herself to the sneaky bunch.
According to reports, the model and fashion designer recently jumped the broom with investment banker Tim Leissner. Ex-hubby Russell Simmons revealed the news on Twitter today, following rumors that the mother of his two kids was in an alleged relationship with Cash Money Records CEO Birdman.
“All of us love @OfficialKimora but the fact is she is happily married,” Simmons wrote. “Tim is has been family for a while now. #gossipcop…. Oh. And.. Tim is not Russian. Lol.”
Before her marriage, Kimora was in a very public relationship with actor Djimon Hounsou until 2012. The two weren’t legally married but participated in West African commitment ceremony. Prior to that relationship, she was married to Simmons from 1998 to 2009.
