Lisa Kline's Husband Dies In Tragic Fall

1/22/2009 8:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lisa KlineCeleb designer Lisa Kline's husband died in a freak accident early this morning -- and sources say it may have been due to a sleepwalking incident.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ Lisa was woken up around 1:30 AM when she heard a loud crashing sound outside of her house. When she got up to investigate, it appeared her husband, Robert Bryson, had fallen off the upper level balcony and struck a fence. Kline rushed down and tried to resuscitate him, but attempts were unsuccessful.

We're told the couple had gone to sleep in the same bed together several hours before the tragedy.

Kline's rep released the following statement:
"Lisa Kline and her family suffered a tremendous tragedy when her husband, Robert Bryson, accidentally fell to his death at the family's home on Thursday. Lisa and her family are thankful for the outpouring of support they have received, and ask for privacy at this difficult time."

UPDATE: Law enforcement sources say they're investigating whether alcohol could have played a part in his death.

As it turns out, Robert Bryson was drunk, climbed up on the balcony to urinate, fell off and died.

TMZ- find out the truth!

He was either drunk, on drugs, or she pushed him off the balcony!

Maybe it was a suicide, but it wasn't a " sleepwalking accident".

#3 - You are sick. I hope no one you love has an accident and dies, but then again there is probably no one you love.
Life is just one big party, isn't it???

A devastated friend    

My heart breaks for his wife and two children. He was the kindest, gentlest, most loving person you could ever know. I'll miss you Bob, and I still can't that you're gone, but I am thankful to have known these past 25 years.

Amazing    

2 things some people believe are fake: laryngitis and sleepwalking. I walked in my sleep as a child and climbed up onto a closet shelf. One that I could not reach while awake. Recently, I got laryngitis and no sound would come out of my mouth,. This stuff REALLY does happen.

"and ask for privacy at this difficult time"

Why would you even print this part. No one is better at invading privacy during these times then TMZ. #4 I think that is what #3 is trying to say but you would rather wish a death on them then read. Its called sacasm. How soon we forget. Travolta ring a bell, Ledger ring a bell.

Robert was not the type that would commit suicide nor did he do drugs. He was a hard working and honest man who loved his family. He will be missed.
