    Age ain't nothin' but a number—just ask Russell Simmons!

    The 54-year-old hip-hop mogul and 26-year-old Leila Lopes (better known as Miss Universe 2011) were all smiles Tuesday on the red carpet of the Trishna screening in New York.

    Uncle Rush tweeted a picture of the Angolan beauty. "Who is this in the back of the Bac," he wrote. "Follow her @MissUniverse." Lopes retweeted the business magnate, adding a ":)" of her own.

    Of course, this beauty queen isn't the first younger lady Russell has romanced.

    Last August he was spotted packing on the PDA with then 34-year-old Melissa George.

    The duo even mingled with Russell's ex-wife, Kimora Lee, 37, and her husband, Djimon Hounsou, at an East Hampton fundraiser.

    As long as Uncle Rush keeps up with his inspirational tweets, we'll be happy for him no matter who he's dating.
