Kimora Lee Simmons breaks silence on daughter Aoki’s PDA with Vittorio Assaf

Kimora Lee Simmons is finally addressing her daughter Aoki Lee Simmons’ PDA photos with Vittorio Assaf.

The Baby Phat creator, 49, admitted to TMZ on Friday that she was “a little embarrassed” when her 21-year-old son’s vacation to St. Barts went viral.

However, she responded by telling him and Russell Simmons’ child that “it is what is” and she should “go home” – without the 65-year-old restaurateur she kissed.

“Mom got her back,” Kimora said, vaguely adding that she thought Aoki was “a little set up” because of their “age dynamic.”

The former reality star also clarified that Aoki and Assaf had “nothing,” confirming Page Six’s report that the duo were “absolutely not dating.”

Kimora added: “She is a beautiful young girl. I think we don’t think Toads We Could Kiss will be broadcast as a thing.

This is the first time Kimora has broken her silence on the scandal since we posted exclusive photos from Aoki’s loved-up getaway in April.

The businesswoman made headlines at the time, making no mention of the tropical trip while celebrating Aoki’s modeling achievements via Instagram.

“Superb and magnificent! 🌟😍♥️,” Kimora wrote at the time, with her followers calling the upload “master deviation(ion).”

Aoki’s father, however, immediately defended his daughter.

Russell, 66, encouraged the Harvard University grad to call him “anytime” on social media, later sharing similar sentiments with TMZ.

Kimora claimed Friday that the relationship between the music director and Aoki was “non-existent.”

She noted: “I make the allowance. And no, it hasn’t been increased (recently).

The former couple were married from 1998 to 2009 and also share daughter Ming Lee Simmons, 24.

Asked about the searches at Sean “Diddy” Combs’ home and multiple lawsuits elsewhere in the interview, Kimora claimed she didn’t “know (the details) of any of that.”
