Nick Cave’s son Jethro Lazenby has died, aged 31.

The news was confirmed in a statement to NME from the Bad Seeds frontman that read: “With much sadness, I can confirm that my son, Jethro, has passed away.

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

Cave lost another son, Arthur, in 2015 after he fell to death from a cliff in Brighton. He was 15-years-old.

Jethro was born in Melbourne in 1991 and only learnt that Cave was his father aged eight.

He became a model after being scouted out while in the city, but had also tried his hand at acting, with roles in 2007’s ‘Corroboree’ and 2011’s ‘My Little Princess’. He’d also worked more recently as a photographer.

Last month, Jethro was jailed following an assault on his mother, Beau Lazenby, in Melbourne, Australia.

According to reports in local media, Beau found Jethro at her front door before convincing her to stay over at the house. Reports add that the following morning, the pair had an argument, during which Jethro attacked his mother.

Representatives for Jethro at the trial argued that he had recently been diagnosed with schizophrenia and that affected his judgement.

He was released on bail from Melbourne Remand Centre last Thursday (May 5) after a magistrate instructed that he must undergo substance abuse treatment and avoid contact with his mother for the next two years. Lazenby appeared at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court via a video link in custody.

Magistrate Donna Bakos told Jethro: “I do say to you that it’s entirely in your best interests to participate with all support services that I’ve set-up for you. It’s very very important that your path to rehabilitation will be a much more positive one and therefore you will be less of a risk to the community at large and in particular to your mother.”

In 2018, he had previously committed a series of assaults on his girlfriend which saw him spend time in jail.
