Bill Cosby just suffered a major loss as his daughter, Ensa, who supported him unwaveringly through his recent legal troubles, has died. She was 44.

According to TMZ, Ensa passed away last Friday night in Massachusetts to what is currently being deemed as "unknown causes."

She reportedly had significant medical issues in the past related to her kidneys, however, and was said to be in line for a transplant.

Ensa remained in her father's corner all throughout the controversy surrounding his heavily publicized sexual assault allegations. She even released a statement in 2017 speaking on her dad's character.

"My father has been publicly lynched in the media and my family, my young daughter, my young niece and nephew have had to stand helplessly by and watch the double standard or pretending to protect the rights of some but ignoring the rights of others," she said. "I strongly believe my father is innocent of the crimes alleged against him and I believe that racism has played a big role in all aspects of this scandal."

Ensa is the second child that Cosby will have to bury. Ennis Cosby was murdered in 1997 by an 18-year-old in a robbery attempt gone wrong.

We send our condolences to the Cosby family during this time.
