Australian musician Nick Cave has confirmed the death of his son Jethro Lazenby.
“With much sadness, I can confirm that my son, Jethro, has passed away,” Cave said in a statement.
“We would be grateful for family privacy at this time.”
Jethro Lazenby, aged in his 30s, was a model and photographer and had acted in two films in 2007 and 2011.
He was Cave’s son with model Beau Lazenby.
Another of the singer’s sons, Arthur Cave, died in 2015 after falling from a cliff in Brighton, England.
Arthur Cave was the musician’s son with his current wife Susie.
Susie Cave posted a tribute to Jethro on her Instagram account shortly after the news of his death was made public, simply writing “Darling Jethro”.
In a 2018 letter to a fan, Cave wrote about the grief he felt after Arthur’s death.
“I feel the presence of my son, all around, but he may not be there. I hear him talk to me, parent me, guide me, though he may not be there,” he wrote.
“He visits Susie in her sleep regularly, speaks to her, comforts her, but he may not be there. Dread grief trails bright phantoms in its wake.”
