The son of musician Nick Cave, Jethro Lazenby, was just 31 years old. The circumstances of the death are unclear.

London – Australian rock singer Nick Cave (64) has made the death of his son Jethro Lazenby public.

“It is with great sadness that I confirm that my son Jethro has passed away,” the musician wrote in a statement quoted by the British news agency PA on Monday. There was initially no further information about the circumstances of the death. Cave asked for privacy.

He had been convicted of assaulting his mother. Cave, frontman of the rock band The Bad Seeds, lost his second child. His son Arthur died in 2015 at the age of 15 after an accident. dpa
