Cuba Gooding Sr has died at the age of 72, according to reports in the US.
The singer father of Cuba Gooding Jr was found dead in his car, TMZ claims.
The website also reports the emergency services were called when Cuba was found on Thursday (20 April), but were unable to resuscitate him.
There was apparently no evidence of foul play.

Cuba was the lead singer in the ‘70s group The Main Ingredient, who had a series of hits, including ‘Everybody Plays The Fool’ and ‘Just Don’t Want To Be Lonely’.
