Aoki Lee Simmons had previously threatened her father, embattled music legend Russell Simmons, that if he didn’t raise her allowance she’d get a sugar daddy.

Well, it appears that she may have done just that.

The old video interaction between father Simmons and his daughter resurfaces after paparazzi captured the 21-year-old Aoki Lee Simmons’ dalliance with a 65-year-old wealthy White restaurateur named Vittorio Assaf. The couple was captured sharing a kiss on the beach of St. Barts in the Caribbean, a noted favorite family destination for the Simmons clan.

In the Instagram video, the youngest of Simmons’ daughters quickly walked the “sugar daddy” declaration back after Russell Simmons’ face folded up into a knot.

But Aoki Lee Simmons has yet to deny or confirm that she is dating an aristocrat old enough to be her grandfather.

“Aoki and Vittorio are spending time together and enjoying each others’ company,” People magazine reported. 

The irony of Aoki Lee Simmons, who recently graduated from Harvard University, dating a man three times her senior is not lost on fans. Russell Simmons is 66 while his ex-wife Kimora is 48.

Some believe that Aoki Simmons may be on a vengeful vibe because Russell Simmons allegedly cut off daughters Aoki Lee, her sister Ming Lee, 24, and his ex-wife Kimora Lee Simmons, 48, because they allegedly do not publicly support him.

The Def Jam and Phat Farm fashion founder is in ostensible exile after becoming the subject of damning and devastating sexual assault lawsuits filed against him. He is currently holed up at an exotic outpost in Bali, Indonesia.

Meanwhile, after graduating from Harvard, Aoki Lee Simmons returned to modeling for the likes of Pyer Moss Paris Couture. She has appeared on the covers of Teen Vogue, Rollacoaster and Flaunt and has graced the pages of Vogue, Huffington Post, The Cut, Essence and Complex.
