Natalie Cole's 39-year-old son found dead

The son of the late singer Natalie Cole has passed away. While his death is now being listed as stemming from natural causes, the autopsy still needs to be completed, with a toxicology report.

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

According to authorities, Robert died of a heart attack. He will be remembered in the music industry years in the years to come, as is his grandfather, the legendary jazz musician Nat King Cole who died from lung cancer in 1965. Three decades prior, his father, pastor and gospel musician Marvin Yancy, died on March 22, 1985 at the age of 34, with his cause of death likewise listed as a heart attack. You " re reunited with your mum Natalie Cole".
