Well, Kimora Lee Simmons certainly knows how to keep it in the family. Rumor has it that the entrepreneur and reality star, who recently split from her man Djimon Hounsou, is dating financier Marc Leder.
Leder, founder of investment firm Sun Capital Partners, bought Kimora’s companies Phat Farm and Baby Phat back in 2008. But the colleagues were spotted looking not-so-professional in St. Bart’s over the holidays. Page Six reports Kimora spent a lot of her vacation “cavorting” with Leder, so much so that news was spreading on the posh island that the pair were dating.
A rep for Kimora confirms that the pair have been “friends and business associates for many years,” but stayed tight-lipped on whether they’ve taken their relationship to the next level.
And why shouldn’t Kimora have her cake? After a public split with her baby daddy Hounsou, she’s looking runway-ready and better than ever. Clearly there’s been no post-breakup pints of Ben & Jerry’s for Kimmy. We say dating Leder is the best way to put her single status and her career savvy to good use.
Side Note: Guess who was also on St. Bart’s over the holidays? Kimora’s ex-husband Russell Simmons! The former couple continue to show us how it’s done by staying close knit and drama-free. Kimora even spent some bonding time sunbathing with Russell’s new squeeze, Hana Nitsche.
