Bill Cosby’s daughter Ensa dead at 44

Ensa Cosby, the daughter of disgraced comedian Bill Cosby who stood by his side as dozens of women accused him of sexual abuse, has died, Fox News has confirmed. She was 44.

She died of renal disease, a member of Bill Cosby’s press team told Fox News.

“The Cosby Family thanks many people for their prayers for their beloved and beautiful Ensa, who recently died from renal disease.”

 The Associated Press reported the 44-year-old died in Massachusetts.Ensa Cosby famously supported her father and spoke out against the women accusing him of drugging them, raping them or attempting to do so.

In May 2017, Cosby’s daughters Erinn and Ensa came to his defense. At one point, Ensa decried the allegations against her father, who was once nicknamed “America’s Dad.”

“The accusations against my father have been one-sided from the beginning,” Ensa Cosby said at the time. “I’ve witnessed my father’s reputation and legendary works be dismissed without any proof.”

She also said “racism has played a big role” in her father’s downfall.

“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’ve witnessed my father’s reputation and legendary works be dismissed without any proof. I strongly believe my father is innocent of the crimes that are alleged against him and I believe that racism has played a big role in all aspects of this scandal,” she said. “How the charges came against him, how people believed them before they were ever scrutinized or tested, how people who questioned the claims were shut down and ignored.”

She added that her father “has been publicly lynched in the media” and the accusations have impacted her family.
