Jacqueline Avant, wife of music icon Clarence Avant, got shot and killed in home robbery on Wednesday morning.
Wednesday morning was a heart-wrenching one for the entertainment industry. Music icon Clarence Avnat’s wife Jacqueline Avnat was shot and killed at their home in Beverly Hills. This news was first confirmed by a Netflix spokesperson. Apparently Jacqueline is also the mother-in-law of Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos.
The investigation into the murder case is still in its initial stages. The motive behind the murder is not yet clear, whether it is a robbery or intentionally.
Beverly Hills Police Department is investigating the case. Police have expressed that perhaps the target was Clarence Avant.
In this context, the Chief of the police department, Mark Stainbrook, said in the press conference that , “I do not think it was a random attack, but I cannot even speculate on it right now.” He continuous, “Investigators are continuing to comb the scene for clues, and asked for the public’s help to find the killer. Any type of crime will not be tolerated in our city.”
Clearly, Clarence Avant’s wife, Jacqueline, was known for her philanthropic work, including serving on the board of directors of UCLA’s International Student Center and as president of Watts’ Neighbors.
Clarence and Jacqueline’s 53 years old daughter Nicole Avanat works as a Democratic fundraiser and has also been a former ambassador. Nicole married Ted Sarandos, who is currently the CEO of Netflix, in 2009. Along with this, Nicole has also produced Netflix’s popular documentary, ‘The Black Godfather‘ ( 2019 ) for her father.
