Nick Cave’s eldest son Jethro Lazenby dies
Posted On May 9, 2022
Australian rock star Nick Cave has confirmed the death of his eldest son, 31-year-old model Jethro Lazenby.
“With much sadness, I can confirm that my son, Jethro, has passed away,” Cave wrote, in a statement provided to multiple media outlets.
“We would be grateful for family privacy at this time.”
No cause of death has been confirmed.
Lazenby’s mother is Melbourne-based model Beau Lazenby.
It is believed he did not meet his father until later in his childhood.
Lazenby was convicted of assaulting his then-partner in 2018, and in April this year was found guilty of assault on his mother.
His death comes seven years after the death of another of Cave’s sons, Arthur, who was aged 15.
Arthur suffered a fatal brain injury after falling from a cliff near Brighton in the UK.
