Kimora Lee Simmons' Marriage Pushed Hubby into a Life of Crime?

Last week one of Kimora Lee Simmons' husband Tim Leissner's former co-defendants in a billion dollar Malaysia bond fraud trial accused him of being a bigamist who uses people [click here if you missed that].  

Now a new book about Leissner implies it was his desire to impress Kimora Lee Simmons that drove him to a life of crime...

“He married Kimora and needed to present a richer personality. He couldn’t be a banker. He had to be a rich guy with his own yacht,” Bradley Hope, co-author of “Billion Dollar Whale: The Man Who Fooled Walled Street, Hollywood and the World,” told The Post.
“He wanted to be a player instead of the guy who just deals with players.”
“The impression [colleagues] had was that he wanted to make a lot of money,” Hope said of Leissner when Kimora came into his life. “He wasn’t content to make what he made.”
Kimora and Leissner are now separated.
