Australian Singer Nick Cave Loses His Second Son Jethro Lazenby at 31

Nick Cave’s son Jethro Lazenby, who was an actor, model and rapper died at 31. Nick Cave has sadly lost his second son after his son Arthur’s death in 2015. The sad demise of Jethro was confirmed by his grieving father.

Another Son Leaves at a Young Age

One cannot imagine the pain the “Mercy Seat” star is going through right now. Jethro Lazenby was Nick Cave’s second son who passed away yesterday at the age of 31. Nick confirmed the sad news by saying,

“With much sadness, I can confirm that my son, Jethro, has passed away, we would be grateful for family privacy at this time.” Jethro was the child of Nick Cave and Beau Lazenby, who was an Australian model. Nick has now lost two of his four sons.

Cave previously lost his son Arthur who died at the early age of 15 after falling from a cliff near Brighton. He died from severe injuries on 14 July 2015. An inquest found that Arthur had taken LSD before the fall and the coroner ruled his death was an accident.

Cave described Arthur as a “beautiful, happy, loving boy” and the impact of his death on his father was explored in the documentary “One More Time With Feeling”. The documentary also focussed on the making of his Cave’s album “Skeleton Tree”.

Cave also wrote about Arthur’s passing in a letter to a fan who had experienced similar losses. He wrote, “It seems to me, that if we love, we grieve. That’s the deal. That’s the pact. Grief and love are forever intertwined.

He added, “Grief is the terrible reminder of the depths of our love and, like love, grief is non-negotiable.” Cave also revealed that he often felt Arthur’s presence. Even though he acknowledged that such experiences are illusionary, he still embraced them. And now, Jethro is gone too!
