Nick Cave is in mourning. He has just lost his eldest son, Jehtro Lazenby, seven years after the loss of his other son, Arthur Cave. The 31-year-old man, born in 1991 from his extramarital affair with model Beau Lazenby, was a model and also stood out on the big screen in Corroboree in 2007 and My Little Princess in 2011.
The singer of the group Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds indicated in a statement sent on Monday May 9, 2022 to the Mirror, the news of his death without specifying the causes. “It is with great sadness that I confirm that my son, Jethro, has passed away. We would appreciate some family privacy during this time,” he said. Jethro Lazenby was jailed in April for attacking his mother in Melbourne, Australia. The young man who had been diagnosed with schizophrenia was released from prison on May 5.

Nick Cave had a complicated relationship with Jethro Lazenby, whom he had only met when he was seven or eight years old. After that, father and son grew closer and had a good relationship. For his part, the Australian rocker then had three other children. Luke Cave, also born in 1991, from his relationship with Viviane Carneiro then the twins Earl and Arthur, born in 2000, with his wife Susie Bick.
In 2015, Nick Cave had to deal with the death of his 15-year-old son Arthur. The young man had fallen to his death from an 18-meter cliff in Brighton, England. Quickly, a report had concluded that the boy described as “always happy and smiling” had consumed LSD, a hallucinogenic drug, before his fall. Devastated by the loss of his son, Nick Cave then released two albums inspired by this tragedy: Skeleton Tree in 2016, and Ghosteen in 2019.
