Normally I try to stay as far away from celebrity gossip as possible, but this has to be one of the most bizarre things that is going on.

Kola Boof

Recently, rumors began swirling that the marriage between Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Hounsou was on the ropes.  The reason given for the possible break up was the fact that Hounsou was carrying on an affair with former Osama bin Laden (yes, that Osama) mistress, Kola Boof.

Kola Boof is a critically acclaimed author who has taken to Twitter (yes, she's doing all this through Tweets) to air out all the dirty laundry surrounding her alleged relationship with Hounsou.

Not able to take the accusations any more, Hounsou decided to release a statement to the website owned by his wife's ex-husband addressing the rumors.  Here's what he wrote:

"It has come to my attention vicious lies and stories are being spread about myself and my family. I do not know, nor have I ever met this person. To that extent any and all claims are totally fabricated and for the press to be spreading these lies is irresponsible on their part. I am a man of integrity and would never betray my wife or my family."

Now, I am of the belief that 'what you focus on expands' and I think that's exactly what Djimon Hounsou did when he released this statement.  Many people may not have taken the tweets of Kola Boof seriously, but once Hounsou addressed them personally it caused a lot of people's antennas to stand up.  In the South we have a saying, "A hit dog will holler" and by releasing that statement, Hounsou appears to be a 'hit dog'. 

I realize he may be caught up in between a rock and a hard place, and his intentions may have been honorable, but the moment he addressed her in a statement, he empowered her to keep talking.  And talking is exactly what she is doing.  She's decided to release her own statement some time today regarding of the fact that there are reports that Kimora Lee Simmons and Hounsou are trying to shut her down.

The whole thing is just weird.  The Hounsou/Simmons should take a note from Will and Jada Pinkett Smith when it comes to handling rumors surrounding their marriage.  The best way to get people out of your business is just to ignore them and keep going on being happy.

The moment you start inviting people in, is when all the chaos begins.
