More heartbreaking news for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian today, with confirmation that the superstar couple are dealing with another horrific family tragedy.
The troubled rapper – whose mother died as a result of plastic surgery procedure gone wrong, and who has recently struggled with his mental health – is now struggling to process the tragic news that his beloved cousin Ricky Anderson has lost his one year old son. Ricky is very close to the couple, and works at Kanye’s music label.
The grieving dad revealed the terrible news via an Instagram message that his beautiful son Avery is now gone.
'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 wrote.
Child-loving and family-focussed Kanye and wife Kim are said to be 'utterly devastated' by the news the little boy has died – apparently in his sleep, with no sign of illness or prior problems.
It’s been one horror after another for Kanye, after wife Kim was robbed at Paris fashion week.
Our thoughts go out to Avery's grieving parents at this awful time.
