Andrew Getty, whose grandfather is J Paul Getty, died on Tuesday at the age of 47. The LA coroner’s office states natural causes or accident are likely the cause of death.
Andrew's ex-girlfriend, Lanessa DeJonge, allegedly discovered him Tuesday afternoon. She called the police around 2:15 p.m. citing cardiac arrest.

Andrew, who appeared to have a bloody rectum when found, was reportedly dealing with stomach issues and had a doctor's appointment set for Wednesday. 'TMZ' notes the condition may have been triggered by stress brought on by his ex. The report also says he had a restraining order against her. In court documents, he called her "deranged" and claimed she would often try to exploit him.
Police detained Lanessa after they initially thought she may have been involved. Once she was cleared, she was reportedly placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold, 'TMZ' states in a separate report.
