Jimmy Flynt has had a falling out with his infamous brother Larry, and is now striking out on his own:
"Jimmy doesn’t sugarcoat his time with Larry. His brother is narcissistic, a micromanager, and a publicity hound, he says. Does he feel liberated to no longer have to deal with such a difficult personality? He pauses for a few seconds and then says, 'I miss him. I enjoyed that brotherly connection.'
"Theirs is a complex relationship, forged under extreme duress during years that encompass Larry’s struggles with drugs, prison, paralysis, and mental illness. Sure, Larry was a piece of work, Jimmy says. But his brother also was his hero. 'When he cut me off,' Jimmy says, 'he cut off his best friend. He cut off his number-one fan.'"
