Model-turned-fashion queen Kimora Lee has bought a neighbour's tennis court, so she can build a pool for her new Los Angeles home.

The former wife of rap mogul Russell Simmons is currently renovating a property close to Jessica Alba's posh address in the Hollywood Hills - and when she learned the new place didn't come with a pool, she set about making her own.

A source tells FemaleFirst, "She has ripped down part of the hedge between her new place and her neighbours' home and she's digging up their tennis court so she can build a pool. She has basically bought the neighbours' yard".

But Lee and her actor partner Djimon Hounsou aren't expected to move into the estate anytime soon - she's close to giving birth to their first child together.

It isn't known who will be designing Lee's new place but stylist to the stars Kenneth Bordewick was spotted on site on Wednesday (29 Apr 09).
