Another day another denial from another Hollywood public figure. Kimore Lee Simons has turned down rumors she is pregnant with the child of actor boyfriend Djimon Hounsou, claimed all the stories the tabloids publish about her "lies."
The New York Post's Page Six reported last week that the fashion mogul was pregnant with Hounsou's baby. The Post cited an unnamed source confirming the baby news as saying, "She's pregnant". A rep for Simmons had no comment at that time.
Urged fans not to believe everything they read in the media, Simmons said Friday, March 14, during the St. Louis Fashion Week at Washington University in St. Louis, "I'm in the paper every single week - that I had a fight with my ex-husband, or that I was mad at one of his girlfriends, or that I'm pregnant, or that I demand Fiji water. Lies upon lies upon lies."
Simmons did not take direct questions on the speculation, but said, "[Reporters] call and ask if I'm pregnant. It all came from Page Six. ... You guys shouldn't believe it" adding that "People believe what they want to believe because it's sensational and it's fun. And they think that's fabulous. I encourage readers to ignore it and seek out the truth."
Simmons, a model, author, and an occasional actress, began dating actor-model Hounsou March last year. Simmons already has two daughters; Ming Lee and Aoki Lee, by ex-husband entrepreneur and record producer Russell Simmons.
