On Monday, reports from the Brant family said that their 24-year-old son Harry Brant was dead due an accidental drug overdose.
The gender-bender was a flamboyant personality and couture icon, along with his elder brother Peter Jr. Harry was found dead on Sunday, days before he was going to enter rehab, according to a statement, which was given to The Post, by his parents.
The family said that they were shattered by his death and that he was planning to go rehab soon. They also asked for privacy to cope with “the loss of our beautiful, beautiful boy.” The Brants were a rich and tempestuous family and not new to controversy:
- Peter Brant spent 84 days behind bars for tax evasion.
- Stephanie Seymour was charged with a DUI when she hit a road sign reversing her Range Rover on a highway ramp.
- Peter Jr. was charged with assault when he allegedly got into a fight, while drunk, with a Port Authority cop at JKF Airport.
- Harry Brant faced larceny and drug charges for allegedly not paying $27.85 cab fare and for having “a white substance” which was tested and found to be drugs.
Harry and Peter Jr. belonged to the Jet Set and were often described as the male version of Paris and Nicky Hilton, two celebrity and wealthy sisters. They inherited their mother’s gorgeous looks and set the ramp on fire. Stephanie Seymour was a model with Victoria’s Secret and was one of their first and most famous “Angel.” The brothers were the creators of MAC Cosmetics’ unisex makeup line.
