Kimora Lee Perkins was born on May 4, 1975, and her home is St. Louis, located in Missouri, United States. Her mother is Japanese, while her father’s work was associated with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. However, her father spent three terms in the prison while K. Lee Simmons was studying at school. Kimora attended Lutheran North School and after graduation started her career which led to Simmons’s net worth increasing quickly.

After her debut Simmons’s net worth did not increase greatly, moreover, no one even thought about her as an actress, and later, when she appeared in background roles of several more movies, she did not manage to show her talent.

Then in year 2006 the situation changed – the drama action movie entitled “Waist Deep” was released, and there Lee Simmons starred together with Meagan Good, Tyrese Gibson and Larenz Tate. As the movie was directed by the famous Vondie Curtis-Hall, it surely gained popularity and the net worth established by such a great actress as Kimora Lee also started to increase.

Later she also appeared in the reality show “Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane” aired on Style Network. Later one more spin off of the show was released and entitled “Kimora: House of Fab”.

After the divorce, Kimora was not alone for a long time – she started to date model and actor Djimon Hounsou, and Lee Simmons gave birth to another child – a boy Kenzo Lee Hounsou.
