Robert Yancy, son of Natalie Cole, found dead at 39”

Less than two years since the world lost iconic singer, Natalie Cole, it's been reported that her only son Robert Yancy has passed away.

His body was found in his home in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles when a friend checked up on him after not hearing from him for a few days.

TMZ reports that family members were informed of his death around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

"Law enforcement tells us, pending an autopsy, they have listed it as death from natural causes, but that can change once the autopsy and toxicology tests are completed", TMZ reports. He also played percussion on Cole's 1993 album Take a look and the saxophone on SWV's 1997 album A Special Christmas.

Robert Yancy, the only child of the late legendary singer Natalie Cole, has died.

It is not yet known if a genetic heart problem ran in the family.

"We have lost another great young soul too soon".

Yancy reportedly worked in the music industry.


It's thought he died of a suspected heart attack.

Yancy was just 39 years old. Her only acknowledgement was a photo in an "In Memoriam" montage.

"She deserves more than that because she has done so much", he said at the time.

Cole's father was legendary jazz musician Nat King Cole.

Natalie, who was 15 when he died of lung cancer in 1965, was also an actress and had appeared in the hit US TV drama Grey's Anatomy.
