She was the wife of an American music legend – now dead, shot dead in the robbery of their Beverly Hills home…
Beverly Hills (Californian, USA) – Jacqueline Avant, wife of American music legend Clarence Avant, was killed Wednesday night during a break-in at her Beverly Hills home.
In addition to the authorities, this was also confirmed by a spokeswoman for Netflix. Caption: Avant’s daughter Nicole is married to Netflix president Ted Sarandos.
According to the responsible authorities, the police received a call on Wednesday evening, according to which gunshots were heard at the property of Avants. Upon arrival, officials called an ambulance to take the 81-year-old to the nearest hospital. She died on the way to the hospital. It is not yet clear whether her husband was injured in the attack.
Known as the “Godfather of Black Music,” Clarence Avant was honored on the Hollywood Walk of Fame under six and was recently inducted into the Hall of Fame. For years, the music producer has been fighting for equality – albeit in the background.
He is best known for his collaborations with jazz musician Jimmy Smith, Argentine pianist Lalo Schiffrin and American singer Baby Face. Former President Barack Obama once said Avant was always a role model for him.
The couple had been married for 54 years. The unknown perpetrators – who entered the house through the patio door – managed to escape before the police arrived.
