Stephanie Seymour’s Gay Son Peter Brant II Addresses ‘Affectiongate’

January 11th, 2011 // 52 Comments

I know I was taken slightly aback at the photos of Stephanie Seymour and her son, Peter Brandt II, frolicking on the beach. Well, her son wants to clear up any confusion with our gross selves that may have occurred.

Peter told Gawker, “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).”

Gawker also asked, “what it’s like to be a paparazzi target?”

Photographers are more often than not obvious when they are there (If holding a large camera wasnt enough of a giveaway) We just accept that they exist and try to ignore them. We learn to accept that these photos may appear in the media but we do not appreciate speculation on our personal lives and any other hateful uninhibited opinions.

I like this kid! What are your thoughts on the whole mother-son-affectiongate? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

    people are going to moan and groan about anything. NOT kissing your kids is bad….kissing your kids is bad….whatever. she loves her son. it’s a GOOD thing.

      a nice place to meet rich guys, ho t babies, Hollywood cel ebrities, who are searching for their special someone. Are you the one?? Come and have a try !!

    My mom is very affectionate with me in the open. Can a mother be too affectionate – i don’t think so. There is no closer bond than a mother to their child. I see nothing wrong or incestutous about those photos.

    • RMM

      I beg to differ. My Mother and I WERE NEVER that intimate.

    • weel

      well, it sucks to be you because this is completely normal behavior, at my house at least my mother and I are super affectionate. If you don’t get it you need to open your mind a little, not every home is the same. Oh and you probably don’t get it if you’re an American, the culture is just different. I know this kid and he has a very european way of thinking.

  3. anony

    Man, is this kid screwed up…..

  4. Lin

    gay son or not, the physical contact in some of those photos IS inappropriate for family. dress it up however you want.

    • Mark

      Let me guess: you are an American.
      Always prude on the outside, but obviously with the dirtiest mind on the inside.

    • Mike Ockizard

      Let me guess, you are European? Maybe it is ok to grope and make out with your mom in Europe, but that sort of thing is frowned upon over here (call us prudes if you want). Honestly, this sort of thing is why so many children, including hers, are turning gay. Having a bit of testosterone and masculinity in your life is not a bad thing, as much as you Europeans hate it. We are feminizing our youth from the day they are born, and teaching them that their male instincts are wrong, and they must be more like women. What do we expect to happen?

    • weel

      hahahhaha i agree with you so badly
      i have lived in europe, latn america, and the US and i cannot agree more with your statement.

  5. KatB

    Oh man, I’m 24-years old and my mom and I hold hands when we go out, my parents constantly hug me. I’ve had people tell me it’s because they’re European (my parents) and such behavior is normal in their culture. But honestly, I find it absolutely normal, I’m their child and we have an unbreakable bond, of friendship, of love and of family. If you feel differently, please start hugging your folks, I’m sure they’ll thank you and your relationship will at the very least be less dry.

    • Dude

      Do you fondle your moms boobs when she kisses you? Do you let her tie your swim trunks while you have a boner? Have you ever felt her ass during that constant hugging? Does she get on all fours and arch her back so her big, round, juicy butt is in full view of you and your siblings? No? Why not, if it is so “European?”

    She try change him… if he is gay.
    How we see, she can offer him everything…

    We saw it, in movie “Savage Grace” 2007, with Julliane Moore:

    Some of the pics are a bit much. Looks to me like she is hanging on for dear life. Cut the umbilical cord mom. And quit hanging on him like a lover. Find a man your own age before you give y9ur son hangups.

  8. Negrodamus

    in one of the pictures he has a boner… I’m not making that up. Not to mention, being affectionate is hugging. Grabbing your mom so tight that your hand is on her breast and you “kiss her intimately” IS an issue.

    She is hot though lol

  9. Ed Rooney

    So THAT’s how it is in their family…

    • rae

      ah ferris beuller. such a good movie. darn that ed rooney and the things he says :). nothing like him implying incest. a girl and her “father” kissing in a car when he picks her up from school isn’t weird at all ;)

  10. anon

    Photographers just like any news media only show you what they want you to see so that you will make speculations, obviously. They showed about 10 photos out of the hundreds they probably took. That’s pathetic. And also for anyone saying ‘boob fondling’, you’re idiots. First of all only 2 of his fingers even touch her breast, and as far as I can tell his fingers are not in motion. Maybe you’re just a wee bit young or have never been in any sort of relationship in your entire life, but as far as boob fondling goes, that doesn’t even get close to the line.

    Most people responding are probably similar to me, from the states. As far as our affection with our family goes, I stopped hugging when I reached 18, at least my mother, I don’t think I’ve hugged my dad since I was like 8. Point being, American families are not really that affectionate on the majority basis. We’re a hands off society. We view it as demeaning and embarrassing and that’s the gist of the American culture. It’s also probably why our society is so screwed up these days. Oh well.

    • Negrodamus

      explain the boner and the breast touching

    • Negrodamus

      and go to egotastic if you think it’s 10 pictures not in motion where they have like 50 photos of it. Every time they hug which is on about 5 or 6 different occasions he’s touching her breast, and some of the pics are one after the other

    • Mike Ockizard

      I have hugged my mom quite a bit in my life, and I can honestly say that my hand has never even “approached” her breast, much less having “a couple fingers” gently cupping one of them while I kiss her passionately with an erection. I love my kids more than anything, and I’m not afraid to show affection, but this is just wrong.

  11. Nathan

    Maybe he became gay after what mom did to him as a child?

  12. Oedipus Rex

    I am American, 36 years old, and I still hug and kiss my mom (my dad too, for that matter). However, I have to admit, the pictures are a bit creepy. There is just a bit too much “hands on bikini-clad body” to be entirely appropriate. That said, it’s her family, and with his being gay I assume it was purely innocent on her son’s part.

    Besides, if my mom looked like that in a bikini…

  13. David

    What’s the big deal even if the touching is sexual? If I had a mom as hot as Stephanie Seymore I would probably be attracted to her too. Don’t be so judgmental of others.

  14. egoviewer

    I want to her to sit on my face

  15. Pepe Parada

    Maybe he is gay because he cannot have his mom. He definetly wants to do her.

  16. tony

    If you are gay or not it’s besides the point…STOP HAVING SEX WITH YOUR MOM IN PUBLIC!

  17. Lady GuyGuy

    HAAA!!! He’s definitely gay if he could resist that body, mom or not. She is the true meaning of M.I.L.F and that goes for sons also. Hey as long as there’s no pregnancy all is good.

  18. Lady GuyGuy

    ……he may have been testing himself to see if he really was gay.

  19. Nick

    It’s pretty common knowledge that some of gay boys are secretly in love with their mothers. Of course they’re bisexuals, but still not one girl can compete with the precious mommy. So they’re decided to go all-gay. Well, it’s their right.

    I feel their pain, although I’d never have sex with a male like myself. I’d rather find a young female that looks like my mother. So, I said out loud what some of you keep in your shut mouths. Don’t be ashamed, it’s O.K. even if the society tells it’s wrong. It’s no more wrong than being gay. The difference is that gay are now freaking mainstream. Oedipus complex is not.

    People need to lighten up, my first orgasm was literally at the hands of my mom while she was bathing me when I was 14. It’s sad that a normal show of affection is twisted to be something wrong.

    • Joe Bills

      Your mom still bathed you when you were 14??? Bathing is not a complicated process. Plug drain and run water. Sit in water. Use sanitation products. None of those steps involve your mother touching your erect penis. She must have wanted to get it especially clean. If that is “a normal show of affection” to you, then I have a few questions regarding your family tree.

    • laughingmyassoff

      Dude your mom bathing you at 14 and you having an orgasm is a HUGE red flag. You might want to seek some therapy because you are one fu*ked up dude. Also, The point that the kid has a erection while being “friendly” with his mom is a major indication that its not all good in the hood…

    • JJ Thompson

      You, sir, may want to seek are not like others if you think your mother bathing you at 14 and cumming to it is ok.

  21. laughingmyassoff

    ALSO, your mom jerking you off is NOT considered a “normal show of affection” in most of the US.

    • Chauncey McAdams

      Quit being so judgemental already! It’s a EUROPEAN thing, your little american brain wouldn’t understand. We have much closer bonds with our families than you, and aren’t afraid to show it. We don’t hide our human nature like you nuts in america. The US is finally starting to come around when it comes to gay marriage, but they have a long ways to go when it comes to accepting the other forms of love out there (interfamilial, interspecial, etc, etc). In time you will come to be more like us…

    • laughingmyassoff

      You must be joking if you think we will turn into euro trash. I have nothing against gays but getting a handjob at 14 from your mother is where I draw the line. We here in america call that rape. Get a fucking life and peddle your anti american bullshit elsewhere.

    • Trei

      quit this shit about being European, k? I am from Europe. We don’t abuse sexually our children. We don’t take advantage of their uncritical love for and tremendous need for affection and approval from their parents. we don’t fulfill our sexual fantasies using our children. There’s nothing European about incest! there’s no difference between the continents about it.

      I’m sorry you’ve been abused! I’m sorry those fucked up parents also screwed up with your minds, making you think this is ok. it’s not! I’m not being judgmental. I’m horrified of the abuse of trust. adults, especially women, jump instinctively to defend a helpless child. it’s in our nature.

  22. mmogaddict

    I want to be adopted by her.

  23. jj

    mommy my pee-pee hurts

  24. Pete

    He has a handful of his Mum’s rack, he has a stiff and he claims this is normal?, lol

  25. guest

    Yeah cuz my mom gets doggy style in front of me then we kiss on the lips while i grab her titty, nothing wrong with that. Sure you’re gay.

  26. Fungi

    Well as a european i have to say it looks weird.
    Ok the pictures were selected out of a big numbre . That can explain the accidental boob touching. The kiss is a kiss on the cheek if you look close(her lips pouty on the one side his on the oder side not so strange). But the thing that seems odd to me is the BONER :’) Even in Europe we kind of think it’s wrong to get a boner over your mom :’)

  27. bob

    So is he saying if he weren’t gay it would be OK for us to infer a mother/son sexual relationship?

  28. Isabella

    Is she using him for intimacy she isn’t getting from another man? No wonder he’s gay, what a creepy mommy’s boy. Mom said in an interview that she had no idea they were being photographed, he says they did, so which is it? I have European parents, and a grown son and I cannot imagine being that intimate with him while nearly naked and at his age, maybe as a toddler.. And her body language is like she is coming on to him, not to mention the porno style positions on the beach. Totally inappropriate and just icky.

    there is nothing wrong in kissing mom and fondling boobs.. its love true love.. Even I am very close to mom, i sleep with my mom. I alaways hug her and put my hands inside her panty. It gives me pleasure. Even i fondle her boobs and sometime suck also… Its motherly love..

  32. Lifever_By_Air

    I’m sorry, I was born in the UK, there is NOTHING “European” about fondling your mother or having a woody when shes got her hand on your shorts. This arrogant little punk is truly vile. Go to you tube and see the video of his 18th birthday party. Narcissistic little brat! I’ve kissed my mom alot, but never with closed eyes and copping a feel..and my mother was a model as well..

    It seems a bit incestuous. Is the kid getting a boner because of the mother or the hot black chick?
