Curse of the Avid Reader Card: Did This Author Break Up Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Hounsou?

I didn’t even know they broke up! Did you know that Djimon was in Janet Jackson’s Love Will Never Do WIthout You video? Back then he’d just come to America from West Africa and didn’t know a word of English, so when he was mouthing the words to the song, he had to really improvise because he had no idea what he was saying. Interesting fact indeed! I think I learned all about it on an episode of Pop Up Video. [Necole Bitchie]
