Kimora Lee Simmons is once again a married woman! The fabulous fashion designer managed to keep her newlywed status a secret for a while... until her, her ex-husband, Russell Simmons, went and spilled the beans on Twitter.
“All of us love @OfficialKimora but the fact is she is happily married,” Russell tweeted on February 19. “Tim is [sic] has been family for a while now. #gossipcop....” He added, likely to correct a misinformed story he’d just read, “Oh. And.. Tim is not Russian. Lol.”
So just who is this Tim? That would be banker Tim Leissner — a senior level employee at Goldman Sachs — whom Kimora, 38, had been dating for, well, we’re not quite sure how long. Since Kimora and Tim have been keeping their relationship very under-the-radar, it’s unclear entirely how long they’ve been together.
We do know that he joined Kimora, her kids, and Russell on a family trip to St. Barts to celebrate Christmas. But, given the fact that Russell says Kimora and Tim have been married “for a while now,” they could potentially have already been hitched by that point!
E! Online confirms, via an anonymous source, that Russell’s telling the truth: Kimora and Tim really did get hitched. That said, neither Kimora nor Tim have confirmed that they are married, and E! says Kimora’s reps did not immediately respond to their request for comment.
If the news is true, as it for now appears to be, then congrats to the happy couple!
