Kimora Lee and Russell Simmons met in 1992 during New York Fashion Week. She was 17 and about to finish high school; he was 35 and a self-admitted ladies man. Friends like Tyra warned Kimora not to get involved with the hip-hop mogul but eventually the two started dating and later wed in 1998. They have two daughters—Ming Lee, 9, and Aoki Lee, 6—but officially divorced in January 2009.
Their careers continue to collide while they collaborate on Phat Farm and Baby Phat projects.
