Peter Brant Jr. went right back to drinking & partying after his felony assault arrest


Peter Brant Jr is one of Stephanie Seymour and Peter Brant Senior’s sons. Brant Jr. is sort of famous for being rich and annoying, plus he’s a model and he’s famous on social media. He’s been profiled by magazines before (like this now-infamous profile in Vanity Fair), and he basically seems like Paris Hilton 2.0. Anyway, Brant Jr. was arrested last week at JFK International Airport. He was drunk and possibly under the influence of more than just alcohol. He was caustic and belligerent to the JetBlue staffers, and when a Port Authority cop showed up, Brant assaulted the cop. It was an exercise in rich, white male privilege, basically.

Page Six has been covering the beat ever since they heard about the arrest. Brant was in court on Thursday to be formally charged with felony assault on a cop. Apparently, he claimed to have “only had three drinks,” but the assistant DA made sure Brant’s antics were on the record, telling the court, “The defendant became so confrontational with airline staff due to extreme intoxication by at least alcohol, if not something more. The airline refused him passage and called the police. He became very agitated, upset and boisterous about being refused boarding.” He also “pushed his way out of an emergency exit in the terminal, setting off alarms.” Seriously, imagine if a brown or black person had acted that way. Think about it. Anyway, Brant was released on $5000 bail (which seems much too low) and even Brant’s lawyer had to admit, “He acted like an idiot.”

After Brant was arraigned and out of police custody, he went “straight to Indochine and Top of the Standard, where he was seen drinking.” He even posted an Instagram of himself and Kyra Kennedy with the message “Days that begin and end with Kennedys.” That’s the Instagram below.

    SMH, dumb d-bag.

  2. islandwalker says:

    Obnoxious twit. He’ll never have real consequences.

  3. tifzlan says:

    Oh, to be white.

    • minx says:

      Is that the truth? Rich white male, they can do anything they please.

      • Don't kill me I'm French says:

        The important word is “rich”.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        Both are important. In the case of not getting shot when setting alarms off at an airport, the key word is white. In the case of getting off with no consequences, the key word is rich.

    Pls don’t give people like this coverage, Celebitchy. PLEASE

  6. Jenni says:

    It must be nice to be young, rich, and live in the bubble of privilege. Good for him I guess.

    • Jen43 says:

      No. He’ll die young. Alcohol. Drugs. Too stupid. Too rich. No parental guidance. Thinks he is the exception to every rule.

      • Stacey says:

        My worry is that he’ll kill someone else – driving drunk or something like that.

        Then his parents will give teary PEOPLE magazine cover stories and talk about what a “good kid” he is and he’ll use the affluenza defense.

  7. Twinkle says:

    These kids are a waste of oxygen.

  8. JenniferJustice says:

    Why wouldn’t he keep drinking and partying…even immediately afterward? It’s not like there’s any reason to quit – like repercussions or any kind of real discipline.

    P.S. That photo of him on the deck rail seriously made me stop eating my lunch. What a DB!!!

  9. Please, please, please don’t let this horror get a reality show.

  10. Green Is Good says:

    It’s already been stated. He’s RICH. Barring actual murder with a bloody knife in his hand, he’s going to skate.

  11. Carol says:

    I’ve met rich kids like that and some of them are complete idiots. They have everything most people covet: money, looks, access to about almost anything. Yet, what they don’t have are people who instill in them the value of hard work, the value of money and self-worth. Some of this rich kids have parents who can care less about them, they just throw endless cash their way, and say “here, live your life” and move on…. Hmmm. How do I get adopted by these folks?

  12. kri says:

    I may get into trouble with Karma for this…but in his case ( and dried turds like him) I hope, in a very loving way, mind you-that something…impactful happens to him. I am not wishing bad things on him or his ilk. I’m hoping that the universe shoves a giant pineapple up their collective arses and wakes them up. I wonder if this comment will make it through. I’m simply saying I would appreciate a little balance adjustment.

  13. Tourmaline says:

    That pic of him with his leg over the fence, gross!

    What can you expect he is rich spawn of notorious airhead Stephanie Seymour who thought it was a good idea to be betrothed to Axl Rose in his heyday.
    Kyra Kennedy is another rich brat, they are perfect for each other.

  14. Mary says:

    Am I confusing Stephanie Seymour with someone else? I thought she was the model who made out with her own sons or something like that? Who am I thinking of?

    • smith says:

      Yup. That’s her. Google it. Also check out the Vanity Fair piece on all involved. If you had any lingering liberal feelings toward his latest plight, they will quickly vanish …

      “Backpfeifengesicht” is a German word meaning “face that needs to be slapped.”

      That is all.

    • Tania says:

      You are thinking of the same woman. She didn’t make out with him, they kissed on the lips. Which in some families is not a big deal. Stephanie Seymour was with Axl Rose when GNR was huge. She was featured in the November Rain video. It was pretty epic at the time.

  15. tw says:

    Kyra Kennedy’s mother committed suicide a few years ago (hung herself in the barn behind the house).

  16. Rux says:

    If he’s so rich wtf is he doing flying JetBlue?! not First Class & not his own JET! That’s probably why he was drunk & then some — poor little rich boy was to fly coach — the horror!

  17. Greenieweenie says:

    Omg. That VF profile was GOLD. Must go investigate his Twitter.

    It’s hard being a II.

  18. raincoaster says:

    This dude makes Archer look like Mahatma Gandhi.

  19. Bread and Circuses says:

    Being rich doesn’t give you a pass from biology, kid. This is what addiction feels like.
