Kimora Lee Simmons was spotted out and about for the first time since giving birth, strolling down Beverly Hills with her newborn baby boy Wolfe Lee Leissner, her husband Tim Leissner and their dog. Meanwhile, Evan Ross and his pregnant wife Ashlee Simpson were spotted bumping along on a lunch date. Peep the babies and bumps inside….
Kimora Lee Simmons was spotted out and about for the first time with her almost 2-month old son Wolfe Lee Leissner with husband Tim Leissner yesterday.
The twosome pushed baby Wolfe Lee in his stroller as they cruised down Beverly Hills for a little retail therapy and quality time with their new family unit.
Kimora is the now the proud mom of four beautiful children. Baby Wolfe joins big sisters Ming Lee & Aoki Lee (with Russell Simmons) and big brother Kenzo Lee (with Djimon Hounsou).
The fashion designer recently announced she would be stepping away from her gig at JustFab.com to focus on her high-end KLS line and her charitable works. Her first KLS store is set to open on Beverly Drive in about four weeks, so she was likely checking out things to make sure everything is running according to schedule.
Another couple on the move....
Evan Ross and his very pregnant wife Ashlee Simpson were seen bumping along for an afternoon lunch date yesterday.
The lovebirds were spotted making their way to Casa Vega to chow down on some Mexican eats, likely satisfying a craving of Ashlee’s.
When Evan isn’t spending time with his pregnant wife and gearing up to be a first time dad, he has been busy putting the finishing touches on his debut album.
Jagged Edge member Kyle Norman is a married man now. He recently got married to the woman he choked and forced to swallow her own engagement ring during an altercation back in January. Get the deets on their wedding and how Kyle has turned a new leaf inside….
This past January, Jagged Edge member Kyle Norman was arrested on aggravated assault charges after he allegedly forced his fiancée Marrika Maria to SWALLOW her engagement ring. Now…they’re married!
Kyle, who's currently making a comeback on the music scene with Jagged Edge, claims he’s a changed man and that he no longer drinks, do drugs and has started counseling to help with his issues. In an exclusive interview with Rolling Out, the R&B crooner talked about owning up to his mistakes and feeling regret for what he did to his partner saying,
“Fellas, we as men have a problem with our apologies. If you make a mistake, own up to it and man up! That’s what I had to do to get my queen back. I apologize to my brothers of Jagged Edge, to my family, my wife and my fans and anyone I let down. I let myself down and my family, and for that I apologize. And I got myself some help. I don’t drink or do drugs anymore and I have changed my entire way of living and thinking. It’s never too late to change. I am just happy she has given me this opportunity to spend the rest of my life with her showing her how much I really do love her. I’m giving her all the hot sauce she wants [smiles].”
Putting the past behind them, Kyle and Marrika decided to “meet at the alter” for an impromptu wedding at the Suite Food Lounge ATL surrounded by close family and friends recently.
After undergoing several surgeries due to the injuries she sustained from the attack, Mrs. Norman said Kyle is the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with and believes he will never put his hands on her again. Hmph. She’s also in the process of writing a book for battered women, a term she recently embraced to help other women get out of bad situations. She told the publication,
“Crediting my deep prayers and talks with God, my deep love for Kyle and conviction that Kyle really does love me and has vowed not to place his hands on me ever again. I am not listening to the naysayers who keep trying to say he doesn’t love me and encourage me to leave. I will admit, I am in a lot of pain every day, physically. I am on several different pain medications which keep me up. I am not able to get more than three hours of sleep. I’m attending counseling three times per week and I know in my heart that God will help me get through this. I’m blessed to be alive and still have the love and support of my familyl I am finding it easier each day to shun the haters that leave me text messages and voicemails.”
Wow...well congrats to them. Let's keep our fingers crossed he learned his lesson....

Kendrick Lamar lands the cover of EBONY magazine’s June 2015 Celebration of Black Millennial Music issue. Meanwhile, Michael B. Jordan is blasting internet trolls who are upset over his Fantastic Four role. So why are folks mad? Well…because he’s black and the role was written for a white man. Deets inside…..
Kendrick Lamar is having an amazing year thus far. His highly anticpated sophomore album To Pimp A Butterfly landed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 album sales chart and stayed there for two weeks in a row. He was recently awarded the "Generational Icon Award" by the state of California and he recently got engaged to his high school sweetheart Whitney Alford. Life is good for the west coast rapper and it’s only getting better.
The Grammy-winning recording artist has landed the cover of EBONY magazine’s June 2015 issue. And it’s a special edition issue, celebrating Black Millennial Music. And who better to have on the cover than the TDE honcho.
On Friday, Kendrick took to his Twitter to release the cover himself. Once his cover story is released, we will definitely bring it to you. Other artists being celebrated in the issue include Janelle Monae, Vic Mensa, Tink, FKA Twigs and more. You'll be able to get your hands on a physical copy once it hits stands next month.
In movie news....
Michael B. Jordan made headlines when he took on the role of Johnny Storm the Human Torch in the new Fantastic Four reboot. And it came with a lot of negative backlash since race plays a role. The Johnny Storm character was written for a white man with blonde hair and blue eyes, so some folks are all up in arms because a black man will be starring in the upcoming reboot.
The sexy actor decided to respond to the “internet trolls” who have an issue with a black man playingJohnny Storm in an open letter via Entertainment Weekly. And here’s what he said:
You’re not supposed to go on the Internet when you’re cast as a superhero. But after taking on Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four—a character originally written with blond hair and blue eyes—I wanted to check the pulse out there. I didn’t want to be ignorant about what people were saying. Turns out this is what they were saying: “A black guy? I don’t like it. They must be doing it because Obama’s president” and “It’s not true to the comic.” Or even, “They’ve destroyed it!”
It used to bother me, but it doesn’t anymore. I can see everybody’s perspective, and I know I can’t ask the audience to forget 50 years of comic books. But the world is a little more diverse in 2015 than when the Fantastic Four comic first came out in 1961. Plus, if Stan Lee writes an email to my director saying, “You’re good. I’m okay with this,” who am I to go against that?
Some people may look at my casting as political correctness or an attempt to meet a racial quota, or as part of the year of “Black Film.” Or they could look at it as a creative choice by the director, Josh Trank, who is in an interracial relationship himself—a reflection of what a modern family looks like today.
To the trolls on the Internet, I want to say: Get your head out of the computer. Go outside and walk around. Look at the people walking next to you. Look at your friends’ friends and who they’re interacting with. And just understand this is the world we live in. It’s okay to like it.
