Entrepreneur Kimora Lee Simmons posted this shot of her adorable sons, 13-month-old Wolfe Lee Leissner, left, and Kenzo Lee Hounsou, 6, on her Instagram account last week. The 41-year-old former model celebrated the grand opening of her newest KLS Boutique in Beverly Hills, CA.
Kenzo's father is actor Djimon Hounsou, and Wolfe's dad is Kimora's current husband Tim Leissner, who was the subject of a probe into his business dealings.
Simmons and Leissner met on a flight from Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur. They argued, according to Bloomberg.com, and the argument ended in a marriage proposal. The couple wed in 2013. Kimora documented her life of obscene wealth on her social media accounts.
In one post, she thanked god for her police escort in Indonesia.
That was then. Before Leissner's spectacular fall.
Leissner, a former Power Banker for Goldman Sachs in Asia, left the company in disgrace in February following an investigation into hundreds of millions of dollars that flowed through Goldman Sachs into the coffers of Prime Minister Najib Razak of Malaysia.
Leissner oversaw a Malaysian state fund that raised $6.5 billion in funds.
“I am not a thief,” Najib reportedly said in July, as investigators questioned the hundreds of millions of dollars that mysteriously appeared in his bank accounts.
Malaysia’s attorney general said the $680 million in Najib's personal bank accounts were simply "a gift" from Saudi Arabia's Royal family. The prime minister hastily returned $620 million to the royals.
But Switzerland's prosecutors suspected $4 billion may have been misappropriated through the Malyasian state fund that Leissner oversaw.
Goldman Sachs launched its own internal investigation into Leissner's fund, concluding that they nor Leissner did anything wrong.
That was before Leissner cleared out his desk in February.
The upside of this story is Leissner has more time to spend getting to know his son and his wife's children.
