Harry Brant's heartbroken family 'say he was days away from re-entering rehab' before his accidental drug overdose at 24

HARRY Brant's family were reportedly trying to get him back to rehab just days before he died of an accidental drug overdose.

Stephanie Seymour's socialite son, 24, passed away on Sunday following a lengthy battle with addiction.

Supermodel Stephanie and Harry's father, businessman Peter Brant, were "worried" about him in the days before his death, a source told People.

"His father was frustrated," the insider said, adding that Peter was "trying to get him to go to rehab again".

Billionaire industrialist Peter wanted Harry to complete his stint in rehab before embarking on a larger creative role at Peter's Interview magazine this year.

"It's hard, anyone who knows addiction knows this. We all knew he had this problem," the source said.


The friend of the family added that Harry was very close to his mother and "inseparable" from his older brother, Peter Brant Jr, 27.

His family confirmed his death of an accidental overdose of prescription medication.

A statement released by his family to the New York Times read: "We will forever be saddened that his life was cut short by this devastating disease.

"He achieved a lot in his 24 years, but we will never get the chance to see how much more Harry could have done."


"Harry was not just our son. He was also a wonderful brother, loving grandson, favorite uncle and a caring friend.

"He was a creative, loving and powerful soul that brought light into so many people's hearts.

"He was truly a beautiful person inside and out."

Last year, Harry posted a clip on Instagram from the 1983 American crime-drama movie Scarface with the caption "contemplating my own mortality".

In his final Instagram posts, he honored a friend and paid tribute to model Stella Tennant after her suicide.

Harry posted a picture of himself with French stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele and Miley Cyrus, wishing her a happy birthday.

Since the news of his death broke, the post has received hundreds of comments from people sharing their condolences for the 24-year-old.

Three weeks ago, Harry posted a tribute to his friend and supermodel Stella Tennant who tragically took her own life after being "unwell for some time".

The model enjoyed a privileged childhood, but seemed to begin a downward spiral in 2016.

He was charged with larceny, drug possession, and interfering with an officer after refusing to pay a cab fare in Connecticut.

In 2009, his father Peter accused Seymour of being an "unfit mother" in divorce filings, claiming she popped pills and abused alcohol.

The pair reconciled in 2010, walking hand-in-hand through the state Superior Court in Middletown, just before the case went to trial to determine custody of the children and splitting of the assets.
