Kimora Lee Simmons Leaves Baby Phat?

By  |  4 Comments

Kimora Lee Simmons announced on Twitter last week that she’d be leaving Baby Phat to pursue other business endeavors:

“After 14 years of conceiving and nurturing Baby Phat, it’s time for me to move on and further expand my other businesses and create a new phenomenon. I adore all those who have faithfully been with me since the beginning. I’m forever dedicated to my family, fans and customers. My inspiration has always come from the fabulous women who have been with me through the years as we’ve grown from young party girls to power players! We’re ready for our next journey together and we’re taking a whole new generation of incredible young women with us. Girl power unite!”

However according to the NY Post, Kimora was actually fired:

“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.”

Baby Phat, a company Kimora founded with ex husband Russell Simmons 12 years ago, was sold to Kellwood Company in 2004 for $140 million. Kimora remained on board as Creative Director.
