Jared told WWD, “Karl had a career that spanned 50-plus years so both personally and professionally he was close to a number of people. I can say we are going to home in on key relationships that convey different parts of his life.”

Karl has always been an inspiration to me,” Jared said, adding that he’s a “true polymath, an artist, an innovator, a leader and, most importantly, a kind man.”

Karl passed away in 2019 and, while he did face some backlash in the years leading up to his death, one celebrity defended him.
