Natalie Cole's Son Dead at 39

The son of legendary singer Natalie Cole was found dead Monday night and he was only 39... TMZ has learned

The son of the late singer Natalie Cole has passed away.

According to TMZ, Robert was found dead in his home in San Fernando Valley, California, on Monday evening.

Family members tell us ... authorities contacted them at 2:30 AM Tuesday and said Robert died of a heart attack.

The county coroner's office says the death was reported as due to natural causes but an autopsy is planned.

Rest in peace, Robert Yancy. Yancy's father, Marvin, died of a heart attack at the age of 34 in 1985. Her cause of death was congestive heart failure. You " re reunited with your mum Natalie Cole".

It was made clear to the family that drugs, which Robert never used, were not involved in his death. While David Bowie, Glenn Frey, and B.B. King, all of whom had died shortly before that year's Grammys, got special musical tributes, Natalie only got a brief tribute to her legacy, which is something her only son took offense to in a statement quoted by ET.

Yancy and Cole-daughter of the late singer Nat (King) Cole-were Wednesday in 1976. In one of the interviews by Cole's sisters, they shared about the last remaining days which they spent together with the legendary singer shortly before her death.
