Andrew Getty, Grandson of J. Paul Getty, Dies At 47

A grandson of billionaire energy mogul J. Paul Getty was found dead Tuesday in his LA home with a rectal injury, according to a report.

Police responding to a 911 call of cardiac arrest at a Hollywood Hills home found Andrew Getty, 47, deceased in his bathroom at about 2 p.m., ¬according to TMZ.com.

His ex-girlfriend, who made the 911 call, was detained by police for questioning but authorities later said the death appeared to be accidental.

The couple had a troubled history, including 31 LAPD visits to Getty’s home for domestic disturbance and drug use, the Web site said.

This isn’t the first brush with tragedy for the family.

In 1973, a 16-year-old grandson of J. Paul Getty was kidnapped.

The kidnappers sent the teen’s severed ear to his family, who paid $2.8 million for his release.
