Whitlock was released after three years, after turning state's evidence against his supplier.Her parents split up and she was raised by her mother. Louis suburb of Florissant, Missouri, Kimora was the target of schoolyard bullying and teasing, because of her height (she was 5 feet 10 inches (1.78 m) tall by the time she was 10 years old) and mixed ancestry.Kimora Lee Leissner (née Perkins), more commonly known as Kimora Lee Simmons, is an American former fashion model.She took over Baby Phat after Russell Simmons and was CEO/Creative Director through 2010. Her Korean mother (possibly half Japanese), Joanne Perkins, was adopted by an American serviceman during the Korean War and raised in the USA.It was her goal to turn fashion label Baby Phat, launched in 1999, into an "aspirational lifestyle brand".
Kimora's father, Vernon Whitlock Jr., is African American, and worked as a Federal Marshall, an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission investigator, a bail bondsman, and later became a barber in St. He was sentenced to 24 years in prison when Kimora was in grade school for distribution of narcotics. Lee met Russell Simmons in November 1992 when she was modeling during New York City’s Fashion Week.
