Sussex police confirmed that 15-year-old Arthur Cave died after falling from the cliff at Ovingdean Gap.
The teenager, who was the twin brother of Earl and son of singer Nick Cave and wife Susie Bick, was found by members of the public on the underpass of Ovingdean Gap at about 6pm on Tuesday.
Although first aid was carried out at the scene, the 57-year-old performer’s son later died from his injuries in the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton. The death is not being treated as suspicious.
In a statement released today, his parents paid tribute to their “beautiful, happy loving boy.”
“We ask that we be given the privacy our family needs to grieve at this difficult time,” they added.
