When a lion cannot find the flesh to feed on, it has no choice but to eat the grass.
Simone Campbell was never the only woman in Omar Best-Collymore’s life but for the most part she was the most important.Persons close to him say that they met in 2005 a year after he began dating Augiar and while Simone was in college. Simone’s parents had a home in Florida and were not struggling, for the most part they had enough money for their comfort. The Campbell family was quite the opposite of Omar Best’s in wealth, values and morals. The Collymore’s were considered loud and uncouth whilst the Campbells were considered graceful, much to the pleasure of Omar’s mother. A young girl with elegance and class adored her son and she loved that. Her son needed someone quite the opposite of him to help him change. Simone was young, very smart, her family was decent and had money. Andrea’s son was unimpressed.It was good for him, that Simone loved him, but that was never enough to make him faithful, there were always more women to charm and Simone knew this.
Sometime in 2007, Omar Best-Collymore began living with Simone and it is also said that he moved in with Angela as well. It is unclear how he kept both relationships going but to Omar’s benefit, Simone was never one to ask a lot of questions. She went to school full-time, worked and was satisfied with being introduced to Omar’s immediate family even if Angela was his main woman. Angela and her family were just as satisfied with Omar because he was better to her than the other men she had been with and got along with one of her sons. The son that was left off Angela’s insurance policy was close to Omar’s age, was sent to live with his father in New York. He was eventually given the mortgage/home that Angela lived in after her death. Omar’s family boasted Angela wanted a baby by Omar but failed to disclose that he learned the real estate ropes from Aguiar.
In early 2008 Omar’s family home faced foreclosure, it is still unclear why because there were a series of loans that began in 2001.
– 2001 for $1500.00
-2001 for $144,000.00
-2003 for $122,930.00
– 2003 for $88,000.00
-2005 for $111,500.00
-2015 for $144,000.00
Andrea’s household was always under financial strain because of debt incurred by Omar and her. Attorney fees for a case where Omar and his friends were caught stealing, eye surgery for Andrea, cruises, home improvement, and some years later to have her home look more like Simone’s family home on the inside were one of the things that prompted the later loans. Insiders say that Simone’s family made Omar’s immediate family feel small because of what they had and how humble they were.
The jury is still out as to what story Omar gave Simone about the life insurance he had to collect from but after having almost to give up on the proceeded because of Florida’s police constant pressure to frustrate him into confessing we are told that Simone helped him to fill out the paperwork for the claim in late 2009, Collymore received it in 2010. Simone was pregnant and finished with school so for Andrea Osbourne, it was a good time to marry the woman that she thought could change her son for the better. Friends say marriage became Andrea’s song to her son because of the potential and class she saw in Simone. Simone’s ”plain” appearance bothered Andrea, she couldn’t understand why Simone did not put on makeup everyday and why she wore tights as often as she did, but she still stood out among the women that her son had introduced her to.
The couple got married in May 2010, shortly before Simone gave birth. Omar was still seen with women, one of whom sued him during that time and giving birth made Omar begin his routine weekly complaints to his mother about Simone’s appearance. Granted, she had already done her breasts shortly after meeting him but childbirth had changed the shape of her body and to him Simone was lazy not to have gotten into shape as quickly as he expected. Andrea , encouraged him to stop cheating and he said he would not stop. Simone came up with the idea that opening a business in Jamaica would be good for their future and the couple began living with Simone’s parents in Jamaica.
This bothered Omar. Simone’s mother appeared to be very outspoken and according to him, Simone listened to everything her mother told her and this was unsettling for Omar, the fact that Simone’s mother saw through him. They eventually moved into their own home.
Simone wanted three children like her mother but after baby number two, physical abuse became more regular in their relationship. She along with her mother and sister did a mommy tune-up in Florida where all three had work done including Brazilian butt lifts. Appearances were good for crowd and also for her husband. The procedures were said to be painful and while Omar’s mother who by then had her own tummy-tuck, and was able to apply empathy, Omar was unmoved. He blamed Simone for having to have to get the procedure done, because to him again, she was lazy.
After the insurance came in, Omar’s family’s financial woes lessened and Simone’s business flourished. Omar encouraged Simone to get into real estate like his deceased girlfriend and after she added his name to a Lauderhill property she had,both began purchasing more properties with Simone’s main focus being her electronics business in Jamaica. Omar used this as leverage to gain more women. He would fly to Florida to visit his ”eye doctor” and on the flights as well as in Jamaica he would try to come off as a successful businessman, something women fell for disregarding the fact that they knew he was married.
Multiple sources have confirmed that Omar abused Simone physically, something she hid from most of her family while Omar bragged about what he did to his mistresses.
