Dang Kimora Got Done Dirty… Dumped From Baby Phat?

- By Bossip Staff

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!

    A size 10 is NOT fat! Why would they photoshop her, when she is already skinny?

    • tommykimon

      A size 10 is considered obese in the model world. Most models are a size 0 or 2.

    • lisa

      especially as tall as she is. I’m a size 10 and I’m 5″8. I know she is over 6

    • kalifa

      kimora is NOT SKINNY….that b*tch has a double chin, fat face, fat waist….even jhud is slimmer than her now.

  • It's Me

    um confused, I thought that was her company. When did she sell the business and became an employee?

    • No u can't be boyfriend #2!

      I actually see this a lot!

      Most people money hungry and that don’t want the real headache of running their own business sell part of their Co. but still have what’s called a ‘good stake’ in their Co. And she probably made sure that in her contract that she would remain the face of the Co. so it would appear as if she still controlled it.

    • Keepnit100

      Things are not always as they seem..

    • MsRachael

      @Its Me. I’m confused too. How can you be fired from something you owned- or at least I thought she owned it. *shrug*

    • lk2041

      What happen is that Russell owned both Phat Farm and Baby Phat. When he sold the Phat Farm he also sold Baby Phat too. Kimora stayed on as Executive Creative Designer. I think I spelled that wrong. But she was also the face of the company. Kellwood owned the both companies for years. Not sure how long but it’s been a while.

  • Princess07

    Kimora is tough and strong black woman, so I am sure she would get the last laugh. Her new clothing line is about to blow-up!

    • she isNt BLACk

      she IS bi-racial

  • Malikka R

    I never bought any of that crap, too ghetto and cheap looking.

    • Shoni

      I agree. I wasn’t a fan of baby phat.

    • Rihanna'sSharpNPointyWitchyFingernailsTookTheOath

      co-sign. I always thought the looks were gaudy and shoddy!

  • KittyK

    We are in a recession! Nobody can afford to pay for bull-shyte! All that airbrushing looks expensive! She should just start her own clothing line (not lease a line from another company, i.e. Kellwood) that way she can’t get fired.

  • Keepnit100

    Honestly, they did her a favor..the line is wack and cheap..who wears baby phat anyway?

    • carmenknows

      I agree…. I never liked baby phat, it always looked cheap and ghetto but it’s obvious to me that she put her real fashion sense and heart into her KLS collection. The difference is a complete 180

    • Ann Taylor

      I do. The clothes fit very well. I Love Kimora, and if she’s gone, I will not support Baby Phat anymore. I just went shopping and did notice a drasctic change in it’s creative style.

      Hmmm… so that’s what the change was, Kimora is no longer involed…..


    I Won’t B Surprised If It Was Another Reason Y She Got Fired..

    This Chick Has A Bad Attitude (From Seeing An Episode Or 2 Of Her Show).. And She Acts Like Its All Abt Her.. *KanyeShrug.. Oh Well!!

  • Don

    They fired her b ecause she is to fat.iohh well who needs her.

  • Nikki88

    ok well for one things….kids dont work for free. they gotta paid too.

    and two – a size 10 is NOT fat.

    • Chris1761

      ….For a ‘Model’ it is.

    • Chris1761

      ….For a ‘Model’ it is.

  • Brownie

    Lmao @ it was costing too much to airbrush her. Cheap shot! lol

    • Nih

      LOL Yeah it was!!!

  • Nih

    Yes in the realworld size 10is a wonderful size, but in the model world size 10 is fat!! And OH WELL, the chick is still filthy rich!!


    If this is true about Kimora’s spend thrift habits, then it’s justified. Retail is barely surviving in this economy, so costs and expenses must be kept at a minimum. If she still owned the company, then she could do whatever the hell she wants, however dumb it may be. But when someone else buys the company and a$$umes all the risks involved, then, I’m sorry, Kimora…you are a liability. I just hope that they weren’t too quick to pull the trigger. As the former owner, Kimora should have garnered some level of respect.

    On another note, Kellwood is out of pocket for a$$uming Kimora’s kids would work for free. They would have had to pay an outside kid model anyway, so that’s bullshyt.

  • Chris1761

    Lets be honest, nobody was looking for Baby Phat or Kimora…I don’t think she’ll be missed.

  • taz530

    GOODY GOODY GUMDROP I never bought babyphat or phatfarm. because i am tired or brother marring white and out of their race. I support BLACK empowerment never will i spend a dime so a brother can take care of a woman not of my race. So what if she is mix she identified white until she began to look like a phat cow now she black. We don’t want her. miss me with all of it and if you had any sense you would not care what happen to kimora she has plenty of money and if you are not still convinced asked her for a dollar and she how much she cares about you.

    • fried flounder n scallops

      hey stupid, she cudnt ever identify as white becuz shes not! shes half black, quarter korean and quarter japanese. u prolly not even a full blodded black yaself, *rolls eyes*

  • oh hellz no

    Lmao @ aoki aint tryna hear that. That lil girl is a true diva. I wonder what new business ventures kimora has going on now???

  • Miss U Much MJJ....Lovely1

    @taz530 Kimora is Asian & Black! She’s never said she was white. Where r u getting this info from?

  • samech

    She never hinted that there were problems on the show lately, so she was blindsided! I believe that. I don’t have anything from Baby Phat but I wish her well…her husband may need to get a job. Money runs out……you can’t make it in your basement…

  • WhoGoneCheckMeBoo


  • No time

    She is going to b ok now that this news is out her new ventures will do ok she just has to get back on Tv. Cause everybody loves her and her fam.

  • tommykimon

    I remember on Top Model, Tyra was telling one of the models how expensive photo shop and air brushing is because the model had picked up a lot of weight. So I believe it is expensive for extensive airbrushing especially airbrushing a plus size woman down to a size 2.

  • Amanda

    Kimora never said she WASNT fired, she just said she was no longer with the company but that she has FULL rights to her other two companies. And a size 10? Idk about that one but whatever. And if she didn’t completely own baby phat why would she work for free? Dummy lol
