Screen Legend Robert Redford Devastated over the Death of His Son

Actor and director Robert Redford is said to be ‘devastated’ over the death of his son James Redford who has died aged 58 from liver cancer.

The news was confirmed by James’ wife, Kyle Redford, on Twitter. “Jamie died today. We’re heartbroken,” she wrote on Friday. “He lived a beautiful, impactful life & was loved by many. He will be deeply missed.”

Alongside her statement was a collage of images featuring James — a producer, writer and director — herself and their family. Some of the images appeared to be rather recent while others were throwback pics. “As his wife of 32 [years], I’m most grateful for the two spectacular children we raised together,” she wrote. “I don’t know what we would’ve done [without] them over the past” two years.

Picture collage was posted by James Redford’s wife on Twitter.

James had struggled with liver disease in the past after cancer was discovered in his bile duct last November and he was waiting for a liver transplant. A spokesperson for Robert Redford, 84, told People magazine that he’s “mourning with his family during this difficult time and asks for privacy.”
