Kimora Lee Simmons secretly married investment banker Tim Leissner, her ex-husband Russell has revealed. Russell took to Twitter on Wednesday, February 19, to spill the news after a report that she was dating rapper Birdman.

"All of us love @OfficialKimora but the fact is she is happily married.. Tim is has been family for a while now. #gossipcop..." he tweeted.

"Oh. And.. Tim is not Russian. Lol," he added.

Kimora and Leissner were seen in St. Barts together in December. Leissner was enjoying himself with Kimora's children and even with Russell who was with them.

This was not the first time that the hip-hop mogul defended his ex-wife.

"Kimora and Dijimon are fine," he wrote on his website Global Grind at the time after reports said that Kimora and actor Dijimon Hounsou was in a rough patch.

After that, the actor's rep released a statement about Kimora and Hounsou's breakup. "Dijimon Hounsou and Kimora Lee Simmons have officially separated after 5 ½ years," the rep told People at the time. "Though never married, they have one child together, Kenzo Lee Hounsou, who is 3 ½ years old."

In an interview with Us Weekly, she said that she "think in terms of relationships changing and evolving rather than starting and stopping."

She also gave an advice to all women: "You don't have to dumb down -- you just have to find a clever, good, secure man. I've found a couple -- I've been lucky -- but it's probably hard for everybody to find that true love of a good man."
