“It is with great sadness that I can confirm that my son, Jethro, has passed away,” the multifaceted UK-based singer said today in a brief statement released by the British music publication NME.
In the note, the 64-year-old Bad Seeds frontman adds that he would be “grateful” if “right now” his family could enjoy “privacy.” It is worth mentioning that the musician did not want to give details of the cause of his eldest son’s death.
It is worth mentioning that Jethro only met his father when he was 8 years old and had several legal problems. He was even accused of assaulting his mother.
