Kimora Lee Simmons and ex Russell Simmons have seemingly reacted to their 21-year-old daughter kissing a much older man.

When Aoki Lee Simmons was spotted locking lips with Vittorio Assaf, 65, her parents had two very different responses.

While Aoki herself clearly didn’t give a second thought to their 44-year age difference, Kimora, 48, had a much more irate reaction.

In a since-deleted video shared on Instagram, a mother panda was seen pulling her baby cup away with her teeth, clearly furious.

‘On my last nerve right now!’, she penned.

Meanwhile, her ex-husband Russell, 66, had a much more heartfelt approach.

The entrepreneur – who was married to businesswoman Kimora from 1998 to 2009 — shared a throwback snap with his daughter from June 2022.

He also wrote about having unconditional love for her.

‘Throw back from last fathers day nyc …bode bikram yoga express class .. vegan lunch cryotherapy vitamin drip … all around amazing day,’ he wrote in the caption.

Tagging his daughter, he added: ‘love you always im always waiting for any call any time [sic]’.

Pictures first emerged of Aoki smooching her new boyfriend on Friday (April 5) after they linked up in St. Barths for a PDA-filled getaway.

It remains unknown how long the pair have been together. However, according to , they met while holidaying on the Caribbean island.

A source close to the model told the outlet that Aoki and Vittorio – founder of Serafina Restaurant Group ‘are spending time together and enjoying each others’ company’.

They added that St. Barths is a favourite Simmons family travel destination.

Aoki is the youngest daughter of model and mogul Kimora and entrepreneur Russell.

They also share a daughter named Ming, while Kimora has son Kenzo with ex Djimon Hounsou and son Wolfe with Tim Leissner.

Kimora is also a mother to Gary, whom she adopted when he was 10.

Aoki is sure following in her famous mom’s footsteps, having already modelled for a string of major brands despite her young age.
