Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Is Not Why Dr. Brandt Committed Suicide: Source

Celebrity dermatologist Dr. Fredric Brandt did not commit suicide because of a Netflix character based on his likeness, says representative.

“He didn’t kill himself because of that one particular show, although it definitely bothered him. It was a very mean portrayal,” Jacquie Tractenberg said.

The dermatologist to the stars, who over the years had cultivated a significant celebrity following that included Joy Behar, Madonna, Kelly Ripa and model Stephanie Seymour, was found dead in his home Sunday, April 5 2015. The death was an apparent suicide says the Miami Police. Dr. Brandt was 65.

“It wasn’t the only thing troubling him, it was just one reason. It definitely hurt him. He was absolutely upset, who would want that? But that was not why he committed suicide. But it didn’t help, “the rep added.

Dr. Brandt was reportedly “devastated” by the portrayal of the blond, botox-wielding Dr. Grant on Tina Fey’s Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Dr. Brandt’s personal friends paid homage via Twitter. “My heart is breaking for the loss of Dr. Fredric Brandt. My friend. You will be missed forever and in my heart even longer.” Kelly Ripa tweeted.

“Dr. Brandt was one of the sweetest, nicest, most generous people I have had the good fortune to meet and work with. He will be sorely missed.” Joy Behar wrote.
