Stephanie Seymour's son: Picture scandal a 'malicious' attack
Last week, photos of bikini-clad former supermodel Stephanie Seymour frolicking on a beach with her son caused a medium-sized stir on the Web.
In the pictures, Seymour and her 18-year-old son do indeed appear to be, well, closer than nature intended. At the time, though, we passed on posting them. Photos can be taken out of context and with no explanation to accompany them, it just seemed like a cheap shot.
But now that Seymour's son, Peter Brant II, has addressed the kerfuffle on his Facebook fan page, we're comfortable passing along the pix for your judgment. (Why does this kid have a Facebook fan page? Because he is a "Designer, Art Collector, Socialite and Model, and the eldest son of Supermodel Stephanie Seymour and Newsprint Billionare Peter Brant I." Duh. Maybe he'll launch his own rap career next.)
Anyhow, Brant described the picture scandal as a "malicious" attack, explaining that his mom is "intimate" with all of her children and adding that he's gay, anyway:
I would just like to say that these pictures have been taken completely out of context, my mother and i are very close as she is with all her children. she often hugs and kisses me and my siblings in an manner that is intimate, any mother in the world does the same. that day on the beach we walked around with each other completely aware of the presence of photographers there. We have nothing to hide and with that in mind I would like to say that I am openly gay. At my age my mother and I are almost like friends and I feel open to talk to her about anything (and yes our relationship may be different because of my sexuality).
Gay or not, I'm still not convinced the Seymour family doesn't need to take the PDAs down a notch. But who am I to judge? That, dear reader, is your job.
