Gossip Girl

Bart Bass

The late Bart Bass was Chuck's father, the billionaire founder of Bass Industries, and Lily van der Woodsen's most recent husband. His family lives at the New York Palace Hotel, which he owned. He was controlling and manipulative, a touch paranoid (he employed a private investigator and stockpiled family secrets), ruthless in business, and sadly uninterested in his son's life. In Season 2, with Dan's help, he and Chuck try to mend their relationship—but before they can test out a new father-son bond, Bart dies in a freak limo accident.
