Nick Cave’s son Jethro Lazenby has died, the musician has said.

A statement issued to The Independent confirmed the news.

“With much sadness, I can confirm that my son, Jethro, has passed away,” Cave said.

“We would be grateful for family privacy at this time.”

Jethro was born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1991 and only learnt that Cave was his father at the age of eight.

He began modelling after being scouted while out in the city and dabbled in acting, with roles in the 2007 film Corroboree and 2011’s My Little Princess, which starred Isabelle Huppert.

During his life, Jethro had a number of run-ins with the law. In 2018, he was jailed for violently assaulting his girlfriend. Last month, he was jailed after admitting to violently attacking his mother, model Beau Lazenby, at her Melbourne home.

Speaking about his arrest in April, Jethro’s representative Sean Ghattas said that the model had been diagnosed with schizophrenia, which had affected his judgement.

The actor and model’s death comes less than seven years after Cave’s son Arthur died, aged 15, after falling from a cliff in Brighton.
