Kanye West faces fresh heartbreak after his baby cousin Avery died in his sleep.
The little boy, who just turned one, reportedly passed away despite there being no sign of illness or distress.
Avery is the son of Kanye’s cousin Ricky Anderson, who works at the rapper’s label GOOD Music in Los Angeles, TMZ reports.
Ricky announced the awful news on social media, telling his followers: “Today was the worst day of my life!! I lost my lil man and gained an angel! Rest in Paradise!!!! I love you man.”
“My heart!!” he added next to a video of the cute youngster dunking a football in a child-sized hoop.
Ricky shared more pictures and videos of the baby boy learning how to use a toothbrush and trying to talk.
Avery’s mum Erica Paige has yet to publicly open up about the heartbreaking loss, but just four days ago she shared a snap of Avery sucking his thumb while looking at iconic producer Quincy Jones, who is thought to be a family friend.
It comes after a rough year for Kim Kardashian and Kanye, which saw them battling rumours about their marriage, a public mental breakdown for Kanye and Kim’s terrifying robbery at gunpoint in Paris.
