Quinn Coleman, a music label executive, DJ and son of former BET figurehead Debra Lee, died unexpectedly on Sunday at the age of 31.
His death was announced by a representative for Lee, 66, but the cause of his death was not noted.
‘Quinn was a loving son, brother, cousin and friend, a passionate DJ and A&R executive with a bright future ahead of him. Debra and her family are devastated by Quinn’s passing and ask for privacy and respect as they grieve together,’ the statement said according to an article by Variety.
Lee and her husband, Randy Coleman, had Quinn together, and also Ava, their daughter.
Coleman has been a Los Angeles-based A&R executive at Capitol Records since May 2018 and had signed Brasstracks to Capitol.
Capitol Records president Jeff Vaughn also reacted to his tragedy.
‘We are all devastated to learn of the untimely passing of our colleague and friend, Quinn Coleman. He will be greatly missed. We offer our deepest condolences to Quinn’s family and loved ones at this extremely difficult time,’ Vaughn said.
