Kimora Lee Simmons' Daughter Aoki Sparks Controversy With Older Boyfriend

Kimora shared a video of a mother panda bear protecting her cub.

Kimora Lee Simmons recently responded to photos published by Page Six showing her daughter, Aoki Simmons, engaging in public displays of affection with businessman Vittorio Assaf. Kimora shared a video on her Instagram Story of a mother panda bear fiercely protecting her cub, expressing her frustration with the situation.

Aoki's father, Russell Simmons, showed his support for her with a loving Instagram post. The photos of Aoki and Assaf kissing were taken during their romantic getaway in St. Barts, where they were seen enjoying the aqua water together.

Aoki, who has five siblings from Kimora's previous relationships, posted pictures from her vacation but did not include Assaf in them. While some fans praised her snapshots, others expressed disbelief over her relationship with a much older man.

Kimora and Russell, who have a significant age gap themselves, were married from 1998 to 2009. Aoki has not addressed the backlash but has always been private about her dating life.

Assaf, who had a scandalous divorce from model Charlotte Bonstrom, was later linked to a 24-year-old model. Aoki's relationship with Assaf has sparked mixed reactions among fans, with some questioning her choice.
