After rumors that he and his wife, Kimora Lee Simmons, have split, Djimon Hounsou has stepped forward to address the accusations.


The web has been filled with claims that the couple’s five-year marriage has ended because of everything from money woes to allegations that Djimon slept with Osama Bin Laden’s former mistress.


Speaking with GlobalGrind, the actor vehemently denied the rumors about he and his family, stating: “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.”


The story on Hounsou ended with a claim that “Djimon and Kimora are happy as they raise Kimora's daughters, Ming Lee, 12 and Aoki Lee, 9 and their son, Kenzo Lee, 3.”
