This doesn't come as much of a shock.
Last week, Kimora Lee Simmons announced on her Twitter that she was leaving the Baby Phat label to focus more time on her three other labels. But today, Page Six is reporting that Kimora didn't leave the Kellwood Corporation. The corporation "unceremoniously" fired her. So abruptly, in fact, that Simmons could be thinking of a lawsuit, according to a Baby Phat source.
Another reason from another Baby Phat insider could be that the corporation fired her to save money. "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."
I'm not surprised. Kimora's Twitter (between the "DEADWOOD!" and inspiration tweets) seemed excessively defiant on her departure so obviously readers could see there was some bad blood a-brewing somewhere.
