Kimora Lee Simmons Leissner has gotten her baby back.
The designer, former model and entrepreneur celebrated International Women’s Day on Friday by revealing that she had personally purchased the once red-hot streetwear brand Baby Phat and will relaunch the label later this year.
She declined to disclose the purchase price or the company from which it was purchased, only saying: “We had to hunt around to find it.”
Leissner was the creator of the women’s-skewed streetwear brand 20 years ago as an extension of the Phat Farm men’s label under her then-husband Russell Simmons’ Phat Fashions company.
Leissner felt at the time that women streetwear fans should have a vehicle and created Baby Phat to fit that bill. She served as its creative director from 2000 to 2010 and later added the president’s title as well.
In its heyday in the early Aughts, Baby Phat was one of Phat Fashions’ most profitable brands with a wide variety of product categories and sales in excess of $ 1 billion. It was worn by major celebrities and hosted elaborate fashion shows.
When Phat Fashion was sold to Kellwood in 2004, Leissner continued to serve as creative director of Baby Phat. A fragrance was launched with Coty in 2005 and

Who would have thought Cam’ron was the sentimental type? Today (June 23), the Harlem rapper took to Instagram to honor the mother of his son, who just graduated high school, and it was all types of heartwarming.
Cam is a proud papa as his son—the same little dude from the Come Home With Me cover—is heading to college. But his IG post was to salute and honor his son’s mother, Toy, who he credits for the kid’s success, as well as his sense of style.
“A Eastside story: so the first week When I got to 7th grade, I seen this girl that I automatically loved. She was cute, had swag, and fly jewelry. I found out her name was Toy and she was a grade ahead of me. And she was tuff. I mean could beat up boys, take it to the guns etc. I was like… what kind of 8th grader is this?!,” wrote Cam with a pic of the teenaged couple.
He went on to detail how Toy got him fly, buying him Gucci gear, chains, and how until this day he’s not sure why. Considering how Cam loves to be a trendsetter, him giving kudos out like this is major.
However, Cam admitted being Killa Cam was the doom of their romantic relationship.
“When she became a junior in high school I noticed a big changed in her. She took school more serious and became a honor roll student. Went on to graduate from St. John’s, masters from Delaware st, and another masters back at St. John’s. And also the mother of my son.. We ended up breaking up when I turned about 26 (I think) because of my cheating, lying and trying to peruse a music career that she wanted nothing to do with. She wanted me to go to school and we live a family life. But she understood my vision but she wasn’t going to be a part of it.”
Fast forward, and their son is a high school graduate, and the kid is so thorough, he wanted his dad to give his mother a gift for the milestone.
“I didn’t have a father in my life so I could never tell my son no to anything. But because of her our son had 5 full academic scholarship offers. and she hates social media. she’s doesn’t have a page etc. So I asked my son.. what kind of car u want for graduating? He said “dad I don’t want a car yet. After I get my associates degree then I’ll rock. But we should get mom a new car. She likes that new Range Rover velar.” I said “WORD!!”
So Cam’rom got her that Range Rover, and some new Gucci gear, too.
How real is that? Big up to co-parenting.
Check out Cam’s full story and footage of the graduation blessings below and by swiping.

Manny Pacquiao reportedly purchased Diddy’s old Los Angeles mansion with all of the fixings for $ 12.5 million.
We broke the story … Pacman fell in love with the 10,000 square foot pad as soon as he stepped on the property last weekend — and now our real estate sources say he made the quick decision to buy.
But there was a catch … Manny wanted to move FAST — demanding a lightning fast escrow period so his massive Filipino family has a place to stay when they come to L.A. for the fight.
In fact, Manny’s in such a rush … he worked out a deal to get the house fully furnished with the furniture, art and appliances that are currently inside the place.
And get this — the owners have even agreed to STOCK THE WET BAR for Pacman as part of the deal. Baller stuff.
Diddy called the mansion home in the late 90s, during Bad Boy’s heyday. He sold it 2001 to move in what we assume to be more lavish digs. It comes complete with 7 bedrooms, 7.5 baths and a swanky $ 200K home theater.
The post Manny Pacquiao Buys Diddy’s Old LA Mansion [VIDEO] appeared first on Hip-Hop Wired.
“Winning the lottery changed our lives for the worse,” says Jodie, whose husband, Edwin, hit a $ 25 million jackpot when he and 14 co-workers bought tickets in a pool. Since Edwin got his after-tax share of the winnings, Jodie says he’s acted like it’s only his money, and that their marriage has gone downhill fast with divorce threatened numerous times. “He thought it was his money and nobody was going to tell him what to do with it. The only thing I really requested is that we purchase a home,” Jodie says. “I found out he paid for his brother’s house. I couldn’t believe he would just hand over half a million dollars and put it in under someone else’s name. I absolutely think he got rid of the money so i wouldn’t have any access to it.”
But Edwin says his wife practically has dollar signs dancing in her head, and that their marriage was in trouble before the winning lottery ticket. “When I won the lottery, she was more excited than me. I think that’s why she’s with me,” he says, claiming that he gave her $ 500,000 of the lottery winnings and she has squandered it. Looking back on their courtship, he recalls, “I had no freedom. Jodie had control over me. I felt like I was under house arrest. She always put me on the spot and made me feel like I do everything wrong.”
Edwin sums up where the marriage stands in his eyes: “I want to get help to make us better, but i feel like there is no hope.”

By Alexei Oreskovic SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Google Inc has acquired streaming music service Songza, the Internet search company's latest move to play a bigger role in the fast-growing online music business. Google said on Tuesday it would explore ways to incorporate aspects of Songza into its existing streaming music service over the coming months. For now the four-year-old Songza service, which creates "expert-curated" music playlists intended to match users' activities and tastes, will remain unchanged for existing users. Google did not provide financial terms of the deal, though a report in the New York Post earlier this month citing unnamed sources said Google had offered to buy the company for $ 15 million.
A very calm and rational Beijing individual is attempting to win back his ex-girlfriend by buying hundreds of tickets to “Transformers: Age Of Extinction.”
According to The South China Morning Post, the jilted man, identified only by the surname Wang, was dumped after he could not afford to take his then-girlfriend to the movies.
Now, after “striving hard for seven years” and running his own company, he has spent a quarter of a million yuan on tickets to the noisy Michael Bay project in order to get her attention. He is currently giving the tickets away for free to anyone who shares his Weibo blog post, in hopes his long-lost love will see it / maybe still want to go to the movies.
“I only want to say that you might have been wrong when you made that decision,” he wrote, according to the Morning Post.
Once Wang is able to find his ex-girlfriend, suggestions for trying to find her include: 1) playing the “Transformers” soundtrack on a boom box held up outside her window, 2) friending her on Facebook or 3) getting tickets to literally any other movie besides “Transformers.”
