Brad Renfro Had a Son -- Who Knew?

1/22/2008 1:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brad RenfroTMZ has confirmed that Brad Renfro had a young son who lives in Japan with his mom -- and the family is trying to keep details about the boy under wraps.

TMZ spoke with Renfro's dad, Mark, and his step-mom, Kim, who would not reveal their grandson's name or age in order to protect his privacy. They placed an obit in a local paper that simply listed his name as "Y Renfro."

Kim told us, "We did expect this because people didn't know he had a son. But we're very thankful Brad got to see his son before he died."

Brad was recently in Tennessee with the boy, spending time with the family.

A source close to Renfro, who spent a lot of time with the actor in the months before his death, tells TMZ she didn't know he had a child.

Aww, that's sad for the son, too bad it seems the "leaving the kid" with someone else continued with Brad.

Not passing judgment, just saying it's a sad situation all way around

I love when celebrities learn how to keep their personal lives personal. Why blab about your life to everyone in the world. They don't need to know. I now have more respect for Brad Renfro then I did to begin with. I'm sorry he had such as sad childhood. And, I'm sorry he couldn't seem to kick his drug habbit (at least that's what it looks like!). And, I'm sorry for little Y that he won't grow up knowing his dad.

He was a really good actor--too bad he didn't get the help he needed so desperately.

Brad Renfro is dead. Let him RIP. Don't exploit the fact that he had a son. It's nobody's business...if Brad didn't want the public to know, forget about it. Write trash about celeb's living....leave his son alone.
