Kanye West has had a very difficult journey back to recovery since last year, and now his family just suffered a huge loss. West’s cousin, Ricky Anderson, who works for him as an A&R and consultant at G.O.O.D. Music, lost his 17-month-old son Avery. The child passed away in his sleep, Bossip reports, but there aren’t other details about his death. His mother, Erica Paige, posted a video of Avery, saying she was “ so proud of how hard you fought,” so it may have been expected, but that’s unclear.
Anderson also shared a picture of his son, which he captioned, “Today was the worst day of my life!! I lost my lil man and gained an angel! Rest in Paradise!!!! I love you man.”
He has since shared several videos of Avery playing, saying how much he misses him.
Truly heartbreaking loss of a beautiful baby boy.
Many condolences to the family.
