This is some bullshizz! Just days after Kimora released a statement saying she was moving on from Baby Phat, new reports have surfaced saying she was actually FIRED! Can you believe that? Why would anybody do that after she MADE that company blow the fu*k up?
Kimora Lee Simmons was “unceremoniously dumped” from Baby Phat, sources close to the ex-model said of her abrupt exit from the clothing company she founded with ex-husband Russell Simmons. Sources said Simmons is mulling a possible lawsuit against owner Kellwood. “She was blindsided that Kellwood fired everyone,” said one. But another Baby Phat insider it could have been a way to slash costs: “Kimora was going over-budget. She’d pay herself a fee to be in the ads, plus she paid her children fees to appear in ads. It costs thousands of dollars to airbrush her because she’s a size 10. Plus, they spent a ton of money on body doubles. They would shoot another model in the clothes, and take Kimora’s head and put in on her body.” Kellwood had no comment.
That fu*ked up they put her size on blast, but we do all remember the little photoshop job they did putting her head on Daria Werbowy’s body…
And SMH at them getting mad at her charging for her kids to be in the ads. They were supposed to work for free? Sheeeeeeet! They must not ever have seen Aoki in action, that child ain’t even tryin to hear that!
