'Southern Charm' Star Olivia Flowers' Brother Conner Dead at 32

Per 'Page Six,' Conner's death was confirmed by the Charleston County Coroner Thursday.

Conner Flowers, the brother of Southern Charm star Olivia Flowers, has died, ET can confirm. He was 32.

"Conner was a remarkable young man, with the gift of compassion and love for others, earning him friends everywhere he went," his family said in a statement to ET. "His values were seeded in his faith and in his family. We know his absence will be felt by many for years to come. Please respect our privacy while we grieve the overwhelming loss of our son and brother."

Several of Olivia's Southern Charm co-stars took to social media to share their condolences, as well as to ask the media for privacy and respect during this difficult time for the family.

"As friends of the Flowers family we have all been asked to stand around them and ask you to please respect their need for privacy so that they may grieve the loss of their loved on," Leva Bonaparte wrote on her Instagram story.

A similar sentiment was shared by Taylor Ann Green, Olivia's close friend on the show, who wrote, "Privacy is number one. Please keep in mind that this is a heartbreaking and grieving time for them."

"Sending all the love and prayers to the family as they continue to heal is the only appropriate thing to do in this moment," she added.

Per Page Six, which received a statement from the Charleston County Coroner, Bobbi Jo O'Neal, Thursday, Conner died on Jan. 30 at his residence located in the Isle of Palms outside Charleston, South Carolina.

"The manner and cause of death are pending," the statement read, with the coroner's office adding that the local police department is "investigating."

Conner's family friends also confirmed his death in several posts shared to social media, as well as some Southern Charm alums, including Thomas Ravenel.

Ravenel took to Instagram on Wednesday, where he revealed that Conner died just 10 days shy of his 33rd birthday.

"RIP Conner Flowers 2/9/1990-1/30/2023 Words can’t rightfully describe how rare and remarkable you were," Ravenel wrote alongside a photo slideshow of him and Conner. "You will be terribly missed by those to whom you were so kind and selfless. My sincerest sympathies to your broken-hearted family."

Per a Legacy obituary page, there will be a visitation at the J. Henry Stuhr Mount Pleasant funeral home in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, on Feb. 4. The funeral service will be held the following day.

The mother of Olivia's co-star and close friend, Taylor Ann Green, left an entry on the Legacy page, sharing her condolences on behalf of Taylor and their family.

"Precious Olivia, Robin and Garry... please know how heartbroken we are for your unspeakable loss. We are holding you in our hearts and prayers for the peace, comfort and strength of God to carry you through. With much love, Leslie and Rick Green (& all of Taylor Ann's family)," Green wrote.

Olivia and Conner appeared to be close, with the siblings sharing family photos of each other on Instagram. They also appeared on an episode of MTV Cribs together as teenagers. The reality TV personality has yet to speak out publicly about her brother's death.
