On March 14, Kanye West was photographed wearing a CRADLE OF FILTH long-sleeve shirt as he was exiting Los Angeles restaurant Bandera, less than a day after his cousin, Ricky Anderson (who happens to work for Kanye's record label GOOD Music), tragically lost his 1-year-old son, Avery.Check out a picture below in a tweet from DailyMail.co.uk.
