LOS ANGELES — Andrew Getty, the 47-year-old grandson of J. Paul Getty, died Tuesday in his home in Hollywood Hills, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The Times, citing Sgt. Kyle Kirkman of the Los Angeles Police Department, said Getty’s cause of death has not been determined.

A female friend was at the home and is cooperating with investigators, LAPD Capt. William Hayes said.

Hayes confirmed the death occurred at a home at Montcalm Avenue but wouldn’t say who owns the home. Records and media reports show Getty owns the 5,000-square foot home, which he bought in 1996.

Hayes told CNN the coroner, who was inside the home, had yet to identify the body.

Earlier, Officer Norma Eisenman told CNN the man who died was not breathing and unconscious when he was found.

Getty is the son of Gordon Getty, one of three sons of J. Paul Getty, the oil tycoon was thought to be the richest man in the world at the time of his death in 1976. Gordon Getty, 81, has a net worth of $2.1 billion, according to Forbes.

Court records show Andrew Getty had recently filed to get a restraining order against a woman. A hearing in the case was scheduled for next week. CNN’s attempt to reach Getty’s attorney was not immediately successful.
