Natalie Cole's Ex-Husband Dies

  • The son of legendary singer Natalie Cole has died at the age of 39

TMZ reports Yancy was found by a friend in his San Fernando Valley, California, apartment. Robert was also the grandson of pop and R&B legend Nat King Cole, who succumbed to lung cancer in 1965. Law enforcement tells TMZ, pending an autopsy, they have listed his cause of death as natural, but the results could change once the autopsy and toxicology tests are complete.

One of them stopped by, according to the New York Daily News and discovered Yancy had died.

Natalie Cole died from congestive heart failure at the age of 65 while her husband has also died through the same condition.

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


Robert's father died of a heart attack aged just 34.

As Monsters and Critics noted earlier this year, citing an Autopsy: The Last Hours Of... episode, a long history of past drug addiction allegedly played a part in Natalie Cole's untimely passing. "Our mother and sister well-beloved, we will miss her very much and will remain UNFORGETTABLE in our hearts forever", he had jointly testified in a press release written with her aunts, Timolin and Casey Cole, in reference to the title Unforgettable (Unforgettable in French), tribute and remake of Natalie Cole with her late dad.

It was made clear to the family that drugs, which Robert never used, were not involved in his death.

Yancy's mother, Natalie Cole, struggled with drugs in her lifetime before her 2015 death.
