Kanye West’s family suffered a heartbreaking loss on March 13 when his cousin, Ricky Anderson’s baby boy, Avery, 1, reportedly passed away in his sleep. His tragic death remains a mystery since little Avery was in perfect health.
Kanye West‘s cousin Ricky Anderson,’s infant son, Avery, 1, reportedly passed away in his sleep on March 13, according to TMZ. Avery, who just celebrated his first birthday recently, reportedly had no sign of illness or distress. This is heartbreaking.
Anderson has been posting adorable videos and photos of Avery on Instagram with emotional captions, and we can’t even imagine the heartbreak he’s experiencing. He posted this video, above, of Avery with a heart.
In a separate post, Ricky emotionally wrote, “Today was the worst day of my life! I lost my lil man and gained an angel! Rest in Paradise!!! I love you man.” Just awful.
Anderson is actually an employee of the 39-year-old rapper. He works at Yeezy’s record label, G.O.O.D. Music as an A&R/Consultant.

Ye’ and his cousin have been known to have a close relationship. They’ve been photographed [above] out together in the past at various events and concerts. Anderson’s also been known to pal around with celebs such as, actors Terrence J, 34, Casper Smart, 29, Michael B. Jordan, 30, and NBA star, Russell Westbrook, 28.
Kanye’s family tragedy comes not too long after he was hospitalized for nine days due to an alleged mental breakdown in Nov. 2016. Yeezy was working night and day at the time, and it was also reported that he suffered from extreme exhaustion. The incident is set to play out on the 13th season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which premiered on March 12.
The rapper’s been doing much better since his terrifying hospital stint, despite the rumors that his marriage to Kim Kardashian, 36, took a turn for the worse after her horrific Oct. 2016 robbery, and his alleged breakdown. He and Kim, however, have remain a united front, and he’s appeared to be in good spirits. Hopefully he and his family can lean on each other to get through this tough time.
Our thoughts are with Kanye and his family during this difficult time.
