seymour beach2 Stephanie Seymour hits the beach again; this time with no awkward touchy feely stuffJust a couple of months after she faced criticism for a series of photos in which she and 18-year-old son Peter Brant frolicked rather intimately on a beach, Stephanie Seymour is back in her bikini — again at St. Barts, this time with two of her younger children.

And, we’re happy to report, no hint of anything that could even be slightly construed as inappropriate behavior is detectable.

As per that, son Peter responded to the stir over the original photos, calling it a “malicious attack” in a statement to Gawker and adding that his mom is like that with all her kids and, hey, 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).
