John Gilbert Getty, grandson of founding father J. Paul Getty, is not thought to have died as a result of foul play. The 52-year-old’s tragedy in Texas comes weeks after the death of his mother Ann, 79. In 2015, his brother Andrew died at 47, after a battle with drug addiction.

John’s daughter Ivy, 25, paid tribute to the “coolest man to actually arrive on this planet”.

She said: “I have not one, but rather two gatekeeper holy messengers looking after me presently.”

A family spokesman said that John was a talented musician who loved Ivy “beyond measure”.

Father of seven Gordon, 86, also lost one brother to a drug overdose, another to cancer and a sister-in-law to a heroin overdose.
