ALIREZA PAHLAVI, the son of the former shah of Iran, has committed suicide at his home in Massachusetts.
Pahlavi, who was 44, was found dead on Tuesday (04Jan11).
He was 13 when his father, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, was overthrown. He died in exile in Cairo, Egypt in 1980.
A statement posted on the family website reads, "It is with immense grief that we would like to inform our compatriots of the passing away of Prince Alireza Pahlavi."
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The film will be the first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe led by a person of colour.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
