Simmons And Lee's Clearance Sale
RUSSELL SIMMONS and his model ex-wife KIMORA LEE are selling off the contents of their former marital home in a bumper clearance sale.
The pair split in 2006 and they put their New Jersey mansion on the market a year later (07). Their divorce was finalised last year (09), but they didn't find a buyer for the 10-bedroom house until recently.
The former couple is now getting rid of all the furniture before handing the property over to the new owner and they opened the house up to the public on Thursday (05Aug10) as part of a massive sale.
Items on offer included a $200,000 (£133,333) designer bed, a $12,000 (£8,000) pool table, a $12,000 (£8,000) Persian rug, and a $20,000 (£13,000) pair of brass lions. The sale even included a set of $20 (£13) dog beds.
Visitors are able to walk around parts of the house and view items, many of which have been laid out on display tables.
The sale is set to continue throughout Friday (06Aug10) and Saturday (07Aug10), according to the New York Post.
