Jethro Lazenby, the eldest son of Australian rocker Nick Cave, has died.

"We would be grateful for family privacy at this time."
Mr Lazenby was born in 1991 to Melbourne-based model Beau Lazenby.
He reportedly spent his early years in Australia before moving to the UK and later beginning a modelling career.
"It was difficult at the time, but it turned out great in the end," Cave told The Guardian in 2008.
"To my eternal regret I didn't make much contact with Jethro in the early years. I now have a great relationship with him."
Mr Lazenby is the second of Cave's four children to suffer an early death.
The 61-year-old Aussie singer lost Arthur in 2015 after the 15-year-old suffered a fatal brain injury when he accidentally fell off a cliff near the family's home in Brighton, UK.
Mr Lazenby was jailed last month after admitting to violently attacking his mother in her Collingwood home in March.
He pleaded guilty in Melbourne Magistrates Court via video link to one count of lawful assault and was due to return to court this month for sentencing. He was reportedly released from jail in recent days.
