Ensa, the daughter of Bill Cosby passed away on Friday night at the age of 44.
Ensa Cosby passed away in Massachusetts, where the family has a large estate, reports TMZ. This makes the second child that Bill Cosby has lost — In 1997 his son was killed in L.A during a carjacking.
The cause of death is unknown. However, Ensa has had medical issues she has dealt with throughout her life.
Ensa who was a yoga instructor at a studio near home, stood by her father during all his rape accusations, saying she believed racism played a part.
“I’m a very private person and I’ve chosen to live my life with my family quietly but for my child, my niece and my nephew, and my father, I can’t sit quietly anymore. The man portrayed in the media today is not who my father is, Ensa released in a statement last year.
“The accusations against my father have been one sided since the beginning, and when he tried to defend himself he was sued in civil court. I’ve seen the accusations become more horrific and extreme with time and I have witnessed my father’s reputation and legendary work be dismissed without any proof.”
“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. 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,” said Ensa. And exposing innocent children to such appalling accusations about someone that they love dearly and who has been so loving and kind to them is beyond cruel.“
