The husband of British singer Corinne Bailey Rae has been found dead of a suspected drug overdose, sources said today.
Jason Rae, 31, was discovered dead in an apartment in the Hyde Park area of Leeds in northern England. Bailey Rae, 29, is said to have not been at the property at the time.
A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs and then released, police said Sunday.
Jason Rae was a saxophonist with the Haggis Horns, who have performed with Bailey Rae as well as Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson and the band Nightmares on Wax.
Bailey Rae is a singer-songwriter and guitarist who released her self-titled debut album two years ago. The record went to number one on the UK charts and sold over a million copies in the US, thanks to the hit single "Put Your Records On."
Police are awaiting a toxicology report on Rae's body.
