Rap mogul Russell Simmons and his model wife KIMORA LEE are in more legal hot water after a New York designer claimed the couple stole his ideas and created the BABY PHAT PINK clothing line with them.

A'LONE ALAKAZIA claims he produced Lee's Baby Phat Pink collection, only to be "physically removed" from the Simmons' design headquarters.

Alakazia insists he did nothing to merit his departure and he was surprised and shocked when he was escorted off the premises.

And he became infuriated when he saw Kimora on America's OPRAH show claiming she had created the Baby Phat Pink line.

Alakazia insists Kimora, who will show off the new collection during New York's Fashion Week this autumn (04), is a thief, and he's planning on taking her to court to recover lost cash.

Lee Simmons' aides state, "It is a shameless and meritless suit against Kimora Lee Simmons."

Kimora was recently arrested on several charges, including pot possession.
