Jethro Lazenby Died At 31 He was the son of Nick Cave

CANBERRA, Australia – Australian singer-songwriter Nick Cave has confirmed the death of his 31-year-old son Jethro Lazenby. “With great sadness, I can confirm that my son, Jethro, has passed away,” the frontman of rock band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds said in a statement on Tuesday.

“We would be grateful for the privacy of the family at this time,” Cave added. Model, rapper, actor, and photographer Lazenby was Cave’s son with Melbourne-born model Beau Lazenby in 1991.

He was the eldest of Cave’s four children, all boys. One of Cave’s twin sons with his current wife, Susie Cave, died in an accidental fall from a cliff near Brighton, England, in 2015. Arthur Cave had taken the psychedelic drug LSD before falling.

Jethro Lazenby, who used the name Jethro Cave to help his modeling career, died in Melbourne after being released from prison last week. Details of his death have not been released.

He pleaded guilty to one charge of unlawful assault and breach of the court order. He was released from a remand center on strict bail conditions on Thursday, the newspaper reported.

A magistrate ordered him to undergo treatment for drug addiction and to avoid contact with his mother for two years. He was due back in court in June to be sentenced for assault and theft from a convenience store.

He had been imprisoned in 2018 for assaulting a girlfriend.

His lawyer told a magistrate last month that his client had long been diagnosed with schizophrenia.

Lazenby told the London newspaper Evening Standard in 2012 that he was 7 or 8 years old when he first met his famous father. Cave told Britain’s The Guardian newspaper in 2008 that he would always regret his lack of contact with his son in his early childhood.

“But I have a great relationship with him now,” Cave said. “It was difficult at the time, but it went well in the end.”

Lazenby is survived by a younger half-brother, Luke Cave, also born in 1991. The musician’s second child, a few days younger than the first, was born in Brazil to his wife Viviane Carneiro, a Brazilian fashion designer and journalist. .

Lazenby is also survived by his half-brother Earl Cave, Arthur’s twin. The twins were born in 2000.
