The news broke in when Nick revealed the same in an interview. “With great regret, I can report that my son, Jethro, has died away,” Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds vocalist stated in a statement on Tuesday. At this time, we would want family privacy,” Cave wrote. The body of Jethro was found in Melbourne only in a hotel.
However, the cause of death behind the unfortunate death of Jethro is still unclear. Further, it has been confirmed by the department that no brutality was inflicted on him concerning his custody. This is not the first time Nick has lost a son. In 2015 too, Nick one of the twin sons died in an accident.

In 2012, Lazenby told the London Evening Standard that he first met his famous father when he was 7 or 8. In 2008, Cave told the British newspaper The Guardian that he would always regret his lack of touch with his son as a child.
“However, I now have a wonderful relationship with him,” Cave explained. “It was challenging at the moment, but it all worked out in the end.” Luke Cave, Lazenby’s younger half-brother, was likewise born in 1991 and survives him.
