Shortly after turning one year old, Kanye West’s baby cousin tragically passed in his sleep yesterday (March 13). Ricky Anderson and his family have been left heartbroken after his son Avery suddenly died in his sleep, reports TMZ.
Avery just celebrated his first birthday with a Disney-themed party alongside his family and friends, and reportedly hadn’t shown any signs of illness or distress. In paying tribute to his son, Yeezy’s cousin Ricky, who works as a consultant at G.O.O.D. Music, 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.” Following his passing, Ricky added a stream of photos and videos to his social media page in remembrance of his child. Avery’s mother, Erica Paige, shared the following photo of them visiting producer Quincy Jones just days before his passing.
No comments have been made by Kanye, on what is another tragedy he’s endured following him and wife Kim Kardashian‘s previous dealings. Our thoughts and prayers are with Avery’s family and friends.
