Harry Brant jokes about his arrest on social media
Harry Brant’s little sister paid touching tribute to her late fashionista brother Tuesday — posting a sweet remembrance on Instagram along with a photo of him holding her in his arms.
“My amazing big brother and my best friend, words cannot describe how much i will miss you,’’ Lily Brant, 16, wrote — the day after the siblings’ parents, billionaire Peter Brant and former supermodel Stephanie Seymour, announced Harry died of a drug overdose.
Lily added to her post a snapshot of Harry holding her at a benefit event in 2010 — him in a white jacket and pink shirt, her in a pink dress and white sweater.
“you were the most amazing brother to me and you stuck with me through everything,’’ she wrote. “you had the most beautiful and sensitive soul and a sense of humor that could brighten anyone’s day. thank you for always making me smile.
“you taught me how to have empathy for everyone around me and you showed me what it feels like to be understood and cared about.
“you lit up my world and my heart is full of love for you. a piece of you will remain with me forever. i love you indefinitely harry. you are an angel and you will always be a beautiful person inside and out. ❤️ rest in peace.”
Lily signed off with a quote from the Ernest Hemingway classic “A Farewell to Arms”:
“The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and very brave impartially.”
Harry Brant — a 24-year-old bon vivant and New York City society and party-circuit fixture — succumbed to an accidental overdose just days before he was supposed to enter rehab, his parents said in a statement Monday.
He and his older brother Peter Jr. were famous for their style.
“It is with enormous sorrow that we share with you the news that our beloved son, Harry Brant, lost his battle with addiction and died due to an accidental overdose of prescription medication,” said the siblings’ paper-magnate father and former Victoria’s Secret Angel mom in a statement.
“Harry wanted to overcome his addiction and was just days away from re-entering rehab,” the couple said.
“He achieved a lot in his 24 years, but we will never get the chance to see how much more Harry could have done.”
