American model Stephanie Seymour has sent folks into a rage after posing in provocative lingerie with her adult sons.
The 45-year-old ex-Victoria’s Secret model posed for the cover of Harper’s Bazaar with her sons Peter Brant II, 20, and Harry, 17, in a move that was said to poke fun at rumours of a sinister relationship with her sons.
Insinuations of an inappropriate relationship with her sons was sparked three years ago when the mother of four was snapped kissing and being playful with her son Peter, in a barely-there bikini, on the glamorous Caribbean island of St Barts.
“They are fearless kids. They grew up surrounded by art,” a family friend told New York Post.
“They decided to combat silliness with silliness.”
In one cover shot, Stephanie stands with her hands tangled within her tousled hair, while her sons sit and kneel at her feet, leaning their heads, hands and torsos against their mother’s long pins.
The Playboy cover model and ex-fiancée to Guns 'n’ Roses front man Axl Rose is no stranger to controversy and embraces nudity in the name of art.
The model’s sons grew up in a home with a Maurizio Cattelan artwork of their mother’s life-size nude bust hanging from the wall.
Despite the ridicule, Stephanie’s son Peter has stood defiantly by his mother, releasing this statement when pictures first emerged of him and his mother, three years ago.
“My mother and I are very close as she is with all her children . . . We have nothing to hide and with that in mind I would like to say that I am openly gay . . . and yes, our relationship may be different because of my sexuality,” he said.
