Michael Madsen’s son Hudson, 26, dead after suicide: report

Michael Madsen’s son, Hudson Madsen, has died at 26 in a “suspected suicide,” authorities told The Sun on Monday.

The outlet reports that the 26-year-old was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound on Hawaii’s island of Oahu. 

“I can confirm Hudson Lee Madsen, 26, died by a gunshot wound to the head in a suspected suicide on the island of Oahu,” a spokeswoman for the Department of the Medical Examiner in Honolulu told The Sun. 

Hudson was the godson of Oscar-winning director Quentin Tarantino. His father, Michael, 64, and Tarantino, 58, have collaborated on multiple films together, including “Reservoir Dogs” and the two-part “Kill Bill.”

Michael is also dad to sons Calvin, 25, and Luke, 16, whom he shares with his wife, “The Price of Air” actress DeAnna Madsen.

A source told The Sun that Hudson’s mother, DeAnna, 61, was traveling to Hawaii to deal with the tragedy.

Chicago native Madsen was the subject of a biopic, “American Badass: A Michael Madsen Retrospective,” released in 2021 from Playmaker Pictures. Tarantino, John Travolta and Daryl Hannah are featured.
