The adage “blood is thicker than water” certainly applied to Bill Cosby and daughter Ensa, who publicly supported her father through sexual assault accusations and legal issues. Unfortunately, TMZ reports the 44-year-old has passed away.
The cause of death for Cosby’s supportive offspring has yet to be determined, but she was said to have had “significant medical issues,” including severe kidney problems, according to TMZ, and could have been in line for a transplant.
Ensa came out in support of her father last year, releasing this statement:
“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.”
“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.”
Cosby’s son, Ennis, was killed in 1997 during a botched robbery attempt.
