Bill Cosby’s daughter Ensa Cosby is dead following a battle with renal disease.
Famed comedian Bill Cosby is currently mourning the death of his daughter Ensa Cosby who passed away suddenly at the age of 44. TMZ reported on Monday that Ensa died in Massachusetts following her battle with renal disease. The full nature of his illness was not made public but the site reported that she had a kidney transplant lined up.
Ensa Cosby was a rock for her father amidst his numerous sexual assault allegations. She was a staunch supporter of his even when the pressure was mounting and dozens of females came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against him.
“My father has been publicly lynched in the media and my family, my young daughter, my young niece and nephew have had to stand helplessly by and watch the double standard or pretending to protect the rights of some but ignoring the rights of others,” Ensa said. “I strongly believe my father is innocent of the crimes alleged against him and I believe that racism has played a big role in all aspects of this scandal.”
Bill Cosby’s retrial for his rape case in Pennsylvania is set for next month. Ensa is also his second child to have died following the death of his son Ennis Cosby in 1997. He was killed in a robbery incident.
