The duo released a statement to the “Breakfast Club” in May 2017 stating, “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.” It continued, “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.”

Update: A family spokesperson for the Cosby family released a statement to USA Today confirming the cause of death as kidney (renal) failure. Per the statement, the family thanked everyone for their prayers for their “beloved and beautiful Ensa.”
