The marriage of hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons and his model-turned-entrepreneur wife, Kimora Lee, has come to an end.

In a statement provided to The Associated Press on Friday, Simmons announced the pair had decided to break up after seven years of marriage. Rumors had swirled for the past week that a split was imminent. The couple have two young daughters.

``Kimora and I will remain committed parents and caring friends with great love and admiration for each other,'' Simmons said. ``We will also continue to work side by side on a daily basis as partners in all of our businesses.'' Simmons is head of Rush Communications, but is perhaps better known as the co-founder of Def Jam Records and for his Phat Farm clothing line. In recent years, he has become more involved in politics, and helped to create the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network.

Why would anyone even bother making a public announcement on April Fools day?
