Jethro Lazenby, Model and Son of Nick Cave, Dies at 30

Jethro Lazenby, the fashion model and son of Australian singer Nick Cave, has died. He was 30.

“With much sadness, I can confirm that my son, Jethro, has passed away. We would be grateful for family privacy at this time,” Cave said in a statement to the media.

Media reports in Australia say that Lazenby had been released from prison on bail on May 5 after he was found guilty of physically attacking his mother in March.

His lawyer said he had been diagnosed with schizophrenia.

The BBC reports that Lazenby spent time in jail in 2018 for violently attacking his then-girlfriend.

Born in Melbourne in 1991, Lazenby was Cave’s son with model Beau Lazenby.

He had been born just 10 days before Cave’s second son Luke with his first wife, Brazilian journalist and stylist Viviane Carneiro.
