A new drama touches Nick Cave.

As reported by several media, including

Rolling Stone

, Jethro Lazenby, one of the Australian singer's children, died at the age of 31.

"I confirm with great sadness that Jethro has passed away," the musician said in a statement.

Please allow us to grieve in private.”

The causes of his death have not been revealed.

As the music magazine specifies, Nick Cave's son was just released from detention, imprisoned a month ago after assaulting his mother, Beau Lazenby.

His lawyer had explained that he suffered in particular from schizophrenia.

In 2015, the artist had lost another of his sons, Arthur.

Aged 15, he died after falling from a cliff in Brighton, a seaside resort in southern England.
