Kimora Lee To Divorce Russell Simmons

I know -- I thought the same thing -- aren't they already divorced? But, the answer would be no.

The couple, who split in 2006, never made it official -- until now. Kimora Lee has filed for divorce from Russell Simmons citing "irreconcilable differences." She asks for legal and physical custody of the couple's two daughters, Ming, 8, and Aoki, 5, and requests that her music mogul ex get "reasonable child visitation … to be accompanied at all times by the children's nanny and security personnel."

So, why now? Could it be that Kimora and new beau, actor Djimon Hounsou, are looking to take things to the next level? Kimora has spent a lot of time lately debunking rumors that she's expecting a baby -- maybe they want to tie the knot first?
