Kimora Lee Simmons has won sole custody of her two daughters with hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, Ming, 8, and Aoki, 5.

According to legal papers obtained by The Insider, Russell Simmons gets the girls one week out of every eight, plus extra time for summer vacations and holidays.

In addition, he pays $20,000 per child per month in child support. That cash flow stops when each reaches the age of 19 1/2, or until the daughter is emancipated, married, becomes self-supporting, joins the armed forces or stops living with Kimora Lee Simmons.

When photographers asked the designer, 33, and the actor-model, 44, to kiss on the red carpet at the Bel Air home of Maria and William Bell for Wednesday's third annual Loveday celebration hosted by Cartier, Simmons opted for a snuggle instead.

"That was more like a nuzzle!" she said.

So, are the two – who first met in February 2007 – engaged? "Kind of," Simmons replied.

Kimora Lee Files for Divorce from Russell Simmons

Originally posted 03/26/2008 08:00PM

Kimora Lee Simmons filed for divorce from her estranged husband, Russell Simmons, in Los Angeles County Superior Court Tuesday.

The couple announced that they had split up in March 2006, but said they had already been separated "for some time."

In court papers, Kimora, 32, cites irreconcilable differences and asks for legal and physical custody of the couple's two daughters, Ming, 8, and Aoki, 5. She requests that Simmons, 50, get "reasonable child visitation … to be accompanied at all times by the children's nanny and security personnel.

At the time of their initial separation in 2006, Simmons said in a statement: "Kimora and I will remain committed parents and caring friends with great love and admiration for each other."

Kimora has been dogged recently by rumors that she is expecting a child with boyfriend Djimon Hounsou. At an appearance in Chicago earlier this month, she told reporters. "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."

Kimora: Djimon Has a Huge ... Billboard

Originally posted 03/20/2008 08:50AM

Kimora Lee Simmons is living large – and so is her boyfriend, Djimon Hounsou.

The fashion-designer-turned-reality-star spoke with PEOPLE at Wednesday's launch of her new fragrance, Fabulosity, and she good-naturedly gushed about the man in her life – and his new Calvin Klein billboard in Hong Kong.

"He's really big," Simmons, 32, said of Hounsou's underwear ad, which Calvin Klein's reps claims is the largest in Asia. "We were just there when it went up. Isn't it a great billboard?"

The Life in the Fab Lane star – who split from mogul Russell Simmons in 2006 and recently denied reports she's expecting – couldn't help but admire her beau's sleek physique (Hounsou is seen only in a pair of tightie whities). She boasted, "He's the biggest one in the world, honey."
