The youngest daughter of Kimora Lee Simmons and Russell Simmons was captured kissing Serafina Restaurant Group founder Vittorio Assaf on a romantic getaway.

Although the new couple looked happy and relaxed, social media users are concerned about the 43-year age gap.

The 21-year-old model and Harvard graduate was spotted vacationing and engaging in PDA with Vittorio Assaf in St. Barths earlier this week.

In one photo, Aoki Simmons kisses the shirtless businessman wearing a two-piece bikini. Another shows the Harvard graduate posing in the sand for Assaf. Other images show the two having fun in the ocean.

Vittorio Assaf divorced Charlotte Bostrom, with whom he has two children, in 2021. The restaurateur then proceeded to date 24-year-old model Nya Gatbel following his split from his wife.

Hours after they were photographed kissing on the beach, Aoki appeared to respond to the romance rumors on her Instagram page.

She posted a photo of herself with the caption, “Err, well, now I know why folks were calling me,” but she quickly deleted the post.

Aoki Simmons made headlines last year for an apparent falling out with her father, Russell Simmons. The 21-year-old model publicly criticized her father, claiming he had been verbally abusive toward her.

She shared screenshots of her messages with her father, whose career dropped after at least 15 women accused him of sexual misconduct during the MeToo movement in 2017.

News of her latest escape has garnered a lot of attention as many wonder the underlying reason for her to date a 65-year-old man.

One user commented, “It’s crazy how the sister we least expected would go down the sugar baby route. She said, ‘My dad stopped taking care of me, somebody daddy/granddaddy going to.’ She’s her mother’s child.”

“You were on here talking about your dad grooming your mom but getting into a similar situation. How do you wanna hold your daddy accountable and turn around and normalize it wild times?” another wrote.

Someone else wrote, “Y’all beg for sugar daddies every day on this app… leave her alone.”
