Harry Brant, the son of racehorse owner Peter Brant and model Stephanie Seymour, died Sunday from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs, according to a statement from the family given to the New York Times. He was 24.

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

He had reportedly struggled with addiction for several years.

“Harry was not just our son,” the statement continued. “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.”

In additional to his parents, he is survived by his brother Peter; his younger sister, Lily; and and five half siblings from his parents' previous marriages. He was the youngest of Brant's sons.

Harry attended Bard College, worked as a model, and founded a unisex make-up line with his brother Peter in 2015.
