The Truth About Cynthia Bailey And Russell Simmons’ Relationship

Often when people refer to Russell Simmons’ love life, the first person that comes to mind is his relationship with ex-wife and model Kimora Lee Simmons. The Phat Fashions couple married in 1998 and had two daughters, Aoki and Ming Lee Simmons, before splitting in 2006 amidst rumors of Simmons’ infidelity, according to Showbiz Cheat Sheet. However, it is often forgotten that he once dated Cynthia Bailey before he married the Baby Phat founder.

Bailey and Simmons dated in the early ’90s when Bailey’s modeling career reached its peak. The two met in New York City, and according to Bailey, Simmons was persistent in his efforts to get her attention. The RHOA star told Straight From The A in 2011 that she wasn’t initially interested in Simmons due to his style, but agreed to go on a date with him. “[Simmons] wasn’t my type, you know. He was still wearing the paisley wool shirts and the jeans and he was sending flowers and every second was like, ‘Please, please, please, please?'”

The couple dated for seven months before their relationship ended due to Bailey’s suspicion of Simmons cheating, Simmons proposed to Bailey but she turned him down, Essence reported. Since their relationship’s end, the two have maintained a friendship. Bailey spoke highly of his personal growth, saying (via Straight From The A): “There’s two Russells: There was Russell that we knew 25 years ago and there is the new, vegan, yoga Russell.” – Source

Russell Simmons Ordered To Pay Kimora Lee Simmons Over $100K, Concluding Year-Long Bitter Court Battle

The ongoing court battle between former couple Russell Simmons and Kimora Lee Simmons has finally come to an end, leaving the Def Jam co-founder on the hook for over $100,000.

According to Radar Online, the pair recently appeared in Los Angeles Superior Court, where the judge granted a motion for payment of attorney fees brought by Lee. In court documents, Simmons has been ordered to pay $83k in legal fees and an additional $35k to cover the costs his ex-wife spent on preparing her motion. The total owed amounts to $100,773.37, and the mogul has 30 days to pay in full. The judgment results from Lee filing a countersuit against Simmons in July after he sued her and her estranged husband, Timothy Leissner.

In October 2021, Simmons accused Lee and Leissner, her investment banker ex, of stealing stocks he owned without permission.

Radar Online reported that Simmons claimed to work with Lee and Leissner on a company called Nu Horizons Investment Group. The company owned the majority stock in the energy drink Celsius. The 65-year-old entrepreneur states that unbeknownst to him, his ex used four million shares as collateral. Shares were allegedly used when she posted a bond when Leissner was caught up in a money laundering scandal.

As the NY Times reported, to avoid prison time, the former Goldman Sachs banker plead guilty to his involvement in swindling almost $4 billion from individuals in Malaysia. Included in the plea deal, he also agreed to pay back $44 million.

Simmons believes Leissner’s desperation to avoid jail time and the massive amount of restitution owed was the motive behind the theft. – Source
