Rap mogul-turned-designer Russell Simmons' wife KIMORA regrets reprimanding an over-zealous shop assistant, after learning the clerk has been sacked.

The former model complained when she felt she had been "verbally harassed" by a clerk at a Manhattan, New York, Victoria's Secret lingerie store, who followed her around as she shopped.

The clerk was promptly fired and is now considering legal action against the store.

A spokesman for Kimora says, "She had no intention of getting anyone fired and just wants to put the incident behind her."
