Brant died Sunday, Jan. 17, of an accidental overdose, his family said in a statement to The New York Times.

Brant had appeared in Italian Vogue and released a makeup line for MAC cosmetics with his brother Peter Brant Jr. 

“We will forever be saddened that his life was cut short by this devastating disease,” his family said in a statement to the Times. “He achieved a lot in his 24 years, but we will never get the chance to see how much more Harry could have done.”

In 2016, Brant was arrested after refusing to pay a cabbie in Fairfield County, in his hometown of Greenwich. He was charged with larceny, interfering with an officer, and drug possession. 

Brant also attended Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson in Dutchess County but did not graduate.

His parents told The Times he had been planning to enter a new drug rehabilitation center this year.
