It seems the reports of Dijmon taking Kimora back to his homeland and making it official are sort of true:
Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Hounsou held a commitment ceremony in his native Benin, Africa over the summer, a source confirms to Usmgazine.com. “The couple is very happy and dedicated to each other one hundred percent,” Simmons’ rep tells Us. The source tells Us the couple — currently expecting their first child together — went to Africa to meet Hounsou’s family and decided to have the traditional ceremony “since they knew it was a special opportunity to all be together.” The pair, who donned traditional garb, “did it to show how committed to each other they are in front of his family,” the source says, emphasizing that it was not a wedding. Simmons’ daughters with her ex, Russell (whom she finalized her divorce from in January 2009), Ming Lee, 8, and Aoki Lee, 6, were also present. “Ming Lee and Aoki call Djimon ‘baba,’ which means a father figure in certain cultures. They all live as one happy family together,” says the source. “Russell respects Djimon and they get along great. He is very happy for her.”
Amistad did not put a rock on it, but he did put a lock on it. Kimora is not getting “married-married” any time soon. She loves her power and marriage would only hinder that.
