Which one of these celebrity couples do not have an estranged spouse involved in the mix? In other words who’s not involved with a married man or woman?
A. Kenyon Martin & Rapper Trina
B. Dwayne Wade & Gabrielle Union
C. Kimora Lee & Djimon Hounsou
D. Swizz Beats & Alicia Keys
The Answer: All of these couples involve an estranged spouse. Kenyon Martin, Dwayne Wade, Swizz Beats, and Kimora Lee Simmons are all married.
The new Hollywood trend is dating before the ink dries on the divorce paper, and in some cases before the papers are even filed. What’s going on in Hollywood when women, can’t wait until the ink dries before jumping in a relationship with a married man? In the case, of Kimora Lee at least her plans to divorce was publicized before she began dating Djimon Hounsou, but with the other women, they are also the alleged cause of the divorce.
Below are a list of excuses I have heard:
1) It’s okay, the marriage was over anyway: but the marriage isn’t over, and what’s taking these men so long to divorce their spouse. Marriage is over when the courts say it’s over, not when the man proclaims it. I’m sure Swizz Beats is telling Alicia Keys it’s not her fault his marriage is ending, and I’m sure he’s telling Mashonda something else, and only the people in the marriage know the truth.
2) It’s not the other woman’s fault: These are celebrity couples, it just takes some simple googling to find out if these men are married or not. It’s not the woman’s fault when she has been lied to, but when she knows the facts and chose to ignore them, all I can same is, “What goes around comes right back around.”
3) You can’t stop love: You may not be able to stop it, but you can redirect it until after the ink has dried. If it’s real, it will be there after the divorce, too. Then you don’t have to hide from the paparazzi camera when you are seen together, or take two different entrances.
Mind you these are just rumors and alleged relationships, but if they are true my stock in these women have gone down.
Singer Brandy has just been ordered to pay up!
As you may recall, she was in a car crash in 2006, and the woman in the other vehicle, Awatef Aboudiha, passed away. Brandy’s Range Rover had struck the woman’s car on a freeway in Los Angeles, killing her.
No criminal charges were filed, but the children of the women will be seeing some money out of the deal. According to TMZ, L.A. County Superior Court has ordered that Awatef Aboudiha’s two children will each receive a $300,000 settlement.
The woman’s husband, Marouane Hdidou, who has yet to settle with Brandy, rejected his part of a $1.2 million settlement offer in February.
This is just sad on all sides, the family who lost their beloved wife and mother and for Brandy who is genuinely distraught over what happened.
UPDATE: Once again Kimora Lee makes an announcement via twitter, and this time it’s the name of her new born son.
Welcome Kenzo Lee Hounsou. Kimora’s + Djimon’s baby boy was born on Saturday May, 30th. He was 8 lbs and 20 inches.
Kenzo is Japanese and it means “wise” and “three”. Kimora has won the name battle all three times. I thought Djimon would have won this round, but I guess the baby does have his last name.
UPDATE: Its’ A Boy! But, we knew that already. Still awaiting details of name and weight, but it’s official as of today, May 30th, 2009 Kimora Lee Simmons & Djimon Honsu are proud parents of a baby boy…
Kimora is in labor and wanted everyone to know it! She tweeted on her twitter homepage, “It’s time !! No turning back! At hospital in labor right now!!” “Having contractions now! Ooo- wee! It’s like WHOA!”
The mom to be is said to be having a baby boy with actor Djimon Hounsou.
Congrats to the happy couple! Hope you have a quick and easy delivery Kimora!
