Kimora Lee Simmons In Pot/Traffic Bust

JULY 29--The power of Kabbalah abandoned poor Kimora Lee Simmons this week.

The bothersome wife of music titan Russell Simmons was arrested early Monday morning for pot possession and assorted vehicular infractions following a traffic stop in Saddle River, New Jersey. As seen in the adjacent police booking photo, Mrs. Simmons, 29, was wearing a Kabbalah red string bracelet to ward off assorted evil eyes when officers pulled over her Mercedes SL-600 (suggested retail price, w/o extras: $128,220).

The flimsy string did not keep Kimora out of cuffs, especially since she repeatedly ignored police directions to pull over her ride (she finally stopped the Benz in front of her Saddle River estate).

Russell Simmons, who has claimed that his wife may have been the victim of racial profiling, said her rough treatment by cops left Kimora with bruised wrists. Those boo-boos, of course, have now probably been concealed by two new Cartier bracelets. (1 page)
