I love Kimora's energy and creativity....of course since she just turned 30 Russell had to go get himself a 23 year old model...


I heard that they'd split, but didn't hear the reason why. I assumed that she dumped him.:lol: Well, he likes them young; look at how young Kimora was when she married him.

Wow...I hope she keeps the house; it's so her.

I adore Kimora, I think she is absolutely fabulous, love her style, and she's just a beautiful, smart woman! Anyone who would trade her in for another is pretty much an idiot in my book! I hope she gets everything she wants outta the divorce!
