Evan Chandler — the father of Jordan Chandler, who accused Michael Jackson of molesting him — allegedly committed suicide, the New York Post reports.
The 65-year-old was found in his Jersey City apartment with his .38-caliber revolver in his hand, officials claim. No note was found with the body.
In the 1990s, Jordan Chandler and his parents received $20 million settlement from Jackson over the sexual abuse claims, although the late King of Pop was never charged with the crime.
Jordan and his father became estranged and Jordan even received a restraining order against Evan in 2006, after he allegedly hit his son with a dumbbell.
According to a family friend, Evan Chandler was depressed in the final days of his life.
