Kimora Lee Simmons may have said it was her decision to leave Baby Phat, but according to people at the Kellwood owned company that's not true.
Turns out Kimora was actually fired!
A source tells the NY Post the Baby Phat founder was a money pit:
"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."
After seeing this ad, we believe it!
The former model is also said to be considering a lawsuit against Kellwood because she was so "blindsided".
Sounds like things are about to get messy.
