” actor has lost his father, oil heir John Paul Getty III. The 54 year old, the grandson of oil tycoon Jean Paul Getty, died on Sunday, February 6 in Buckinghamshire, England after a long illness.

Getty had been in poor health since 1981 when a drug overdose caused a stroke, which left him paralyzed and nearly blind. The overdose came just eight years after he was kidnapped in Rome, Italy and held for a $17 million ransom. His captors, who cut off part of his ear, were never found but Getty was discovered alive in southern Italy in 1973.

The troubled heir welcomed Balthazar with his wife Gisela two years later.



Oil Heir J. Paul Getty III Dies

Paul Getty III, grandson of American oil magnate J. Paul Getty, died Saturday in Buckinghamshire, England, at the age of 54. In 1973, Getty was abducted by the mafia, from a piazza in Rome. When his grandfather refused to send the requested ransom, Getty’s kidnappers severed his right ear. He was released after four months in captivity. Perhaps the most disturbing part of the story: Getty’s grandfather eventually ponied up a portion of the ransom and charged his son — J. Paul Getty II — interest for the remainder of the ransom.

A decade after the kidnapping, Getty fell into drugs and alcohol addiction, and suffered an incapacitating drug-induced stroke. His died Saturday after a long illness, and is survived by his two children, one of whom is actor Balthazar Getty.
