Once and for all, Stephanie Seymour and her 18-year-old son, Peter Brant II, were not really engaged in a steamy lip-locking embrace. It was just role play. Yes. This whole thing just got a lot weirder.
The 42-year-old model, who was snapped in January by sneaky photogs on a St. Bart’s beach dressed in a bikini while strolling and kissing her eldest kid in what looked like a passionate clench, had dismissed the crazy talk about their affection on Oprah.
Likewise, her son took to Facebook right afterwards to say they had “nothing to hide” and that not only is he not dating his mother, he wouldn’t because he is openly gay ::::
OPRAH: Stephanie says the media’s response is a misinterpretation. “I’ve gone through a lot in the past two years, and I gained a lot of weight, and it really upset me. So I spent two days indoors, and when I came out and finally decided to just go outside, my son was so happy to see me,” she says. “He was wooing me and gave me a big hug and a kiss, and we had no idea that that one second would be turned into something that could ever be thought of as inappropriate. He’s my baby. He’s a gorgeous young man, but he’s my baby.”
But now, Seymour is talking to Town & Country magazine, where she goes into a bit more detail on exactly why the two were caught smacking lips
She says she had been feeling insecure and completely e.mbarrassed to be seen in a bathing suit – oh the horror! – because she’d gone and gained a whopping 10 pounds. So, all that being as it may; her gaylord theatrical son knew she was self-conscious and, during their sandy walk, decided to grab her and pretend to woo her like “one of the stars in one of the movie musicals” the family loves to watch together.
Mystery solved? Not quite!
See, Peter Jnr wrote on his Facebook page that the two played up their kiss because they knew photogs were lurking nearby. However, Seymour states the opposite, telling Town & Country that they thought they were alone.
“I tell my children not to believe everything they read,” she says. “Don’t believe your press when it’s good, or when it’s bad. Just move forward and stick to your goals. Don’t get caught up in all that nonsense. And that beach photograph nonsense was really ridiculous“
Hmmm . . . stories straight at this point wouldn’t be a bad idea. When one is caught tonguing a sibling, child or parent: That, you must explain!
The Victoria’s Secret Angel and ex of Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose in days gone past, the beauty put her body into a series of odd-looking shapes more suited to a pop video than a family vacation. The couple revealed in September that they were calling off their acrimonious divorce despite already spending millions each on legal fees and had got back together.
She went on to grace more than 300 magazine covers and became one of Sports Illustrated’s most celebrated swimsuit models, can yah tell?
As for her reconciliation with hubby, uberwealthy Peter Brant, the duo live in separate houses and are in therapy, but share custody of their kids and spend holidays together as a family.
The two-some decided to put the kibosh on their divorce proceedings once every little detail started to become public. The model and the mogul kissed and made up just 24 hours before court proceedings were to start, saying they wanted to remain married and try to work things out. How did that happen after Brant labeled the mother of his three children a boozing, drug-using cheater?
Seymour says that after crippling bouts of sadness that would keep her inside her bedroom for days on end before the trial was to begin. She tells the story of being at a loss for what to say after her and Brant had both publicly dragged each other through the mud. So she thought of the old Navajo blanket Brant had kept since he was 19 and left at the house where she was staying. Seymour went over to his house with the peace offering, knocking on the door and telling him to get rid of their lawyers and make up. They called off the proceedings and are now trying to “work it out.”
“I’m not perfect. He’s not perfect, what we’ve done is tried to come together. And we’ve decided that this is our personal and private family business” said Seymour

Police were called to the couple’s home following Seymour’s complaint that Brant’s security assaulted her, Brant accused the model of drug use and was seeking sole custody of their three children. However, their relationship seems to be in great shape now – much like Stephanie’s beach-ready body.

JAN 12, 2011: We’re a little concerned with the identity of the love interest draped around her as she emerges from the surf. Turns out the 41-year-old’s touchy-feely partner in crime is Peter Brandt Jr., her 17-year-old son! The supermodel –in a flesh-colored bikini – is seen canoodling with her 17-year-old son, Peter, during a stroll on the beach. The two playfully hug (her hand on his hip, his on her… well, you can see for yourself) — and at one point the polite gentleman even kisses his mother’s hand. Aww Shucks!!
The 41-year-old beauty and her 18-year-old son raised eyebrows recently when the two were caught kissing on a beach in St. Barts. Clad in a pink bikini, Seymour embraced Brant, who was wearing swimming trucks and the two engaged in a kiss on the lips with his hand resting on his mother’s breast. Mother and son can be seen frolicking on the sand and in the water in similar compromising positions with Seymour’s other kids nearby.
Seymour has been vacationing in St. Barths with her family and showing off her sexy curves in a nude-colored bathing suit. But Seymour, 42, still managed to get caught in some unflattering photos. In the photos, she appears to be touchy-feely with Peter Brant Jr, her 17-year-old son. Perhaps it was purely innocent, but there’s still a certain “Eww” factor.Seymour and her husband, Peter Brant, reunited for the family getaway. The pair called off their divorce in November and decided to give it another shot.
