Kimora Lee Simmons addresses anorexia rumors that have recently surfaced, which claim that Kimora lost 25 pounds by starving herself.
Kimora is shooting down the rumors and emphasizing that she is fully committed to promoting a healthy body image to her kids.
Kimora, who has three kids, took heat for her rumored weight loss methods, with critics saying she was sending out the wrong message to her little girls.
Kimora addresses the anorexia rumors on her blog:
“I just wanted to take a moment to address a story about my recent weight loss that began circulating today. This story led people to believe that I shed 25 pounds by not eating, which is completely ridiculous.
I am a mother of three young children, two of whom are girls and I’m trying to raise them with a healthy body image. It’s taken me almost a year to lose close to 25 lbs and I did it through healthy diet and exercise. So yes, I’m a bit smaller, but still curvy and 100% healthy and proud of my body and the time it has taken me to undergo this personal journey for myself. I’m not one of those ‘superstar moms’ who lost all their baby weight in a week. So, yes, I’m upset about the innuendo because I just can’t win. In the past year there have been numerous rumors about my weight – first I was attacked for being a size 10, now I’m anorexic?”
Kimora also writes, “I’m a real woman and I represent real women. I believe that people are beautiful at any size, color or weight” and criticizes those who spread the eating disorder rumors: “There must be more accountability in reporting, especially considering the far reaching impact on girls and young women who are exposed to this kind of misleading information on a daily basis. What kind of example is that setting for them?”
