Russell Simmons and Kimora Lee's Lavish Yard Sale

Originally posted 08/06/2010 06:55PM

Who would have thought a yard sale could be fab? But there is one happening this weekend that’s way more luxury than low-rent.

Kimora Lee, star of Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane, and her ex husband, music mogul Russell Simmons, are putting many of their possessions – including an Andy Warhol piece – up for sale.

The couple, who split in 2006, sold their 3.96-acre estate for $13.9 million last month, and are selling what's left inside the sprawling New Jersey home they once shared.

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.

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."
