Lee Simmons Leaves Baby Phat

(Filed Under Fashion News). Kimora Lee Simmons tweeted on August 20 that she is leaving Baby Phat, the brand she helped create with ex-husband Russell Simmons, and reports are now surfacing that imply it wasn’t her choice.

The New York Post released an article on August 26 that cited sources claiming that Kellwood, the owner of Baby Phat, fired Simmons, creative director of the company, to cut costs. The Post quoted a Baby Phat insider saying that Simmons was going over budget, and was expensive to airbrush because she is a size 10.

Simmons Twitter account supports speculation that she was forced out. In response to a fan’s question, “Did u quit from baby phat?!” Simmons tweeted: “No I did not quit. But it is over!”
