Bill Cosby's daughter Ensa has died from renal disease at the age of 44.

The daughter of the disgraced comedian died from the kidney disease in Massachusetts on Friday (local time), a family spokesperson told CNN.

"The Cosby Family thanks many people for their prayers for their beloved and beautiful Ensa, who recently died from renal disease," he said in a statement.

According to CNN, she had a history of medical problems, and was possibly awaiting a kidney transplant.

Last year, Ensa was one of the strongest supporters of her father when he went to trial over sexual assault allegations. In a statement the mother-of-one said there were racist motivations over Cosby's prosecution.

"My father has been publicly lynched in the media," she said, adding that the accusations against him were "appalling".

Ensa is survived by three sisters - Evin, Errin and Erika. Their brother Ennis was killed in 1997 during a failed robbery attempt.
