No cause of death has been revealed, but Antron reportedly died on April 18, 2021. He was the eldest of seven children that Pippen has in total. Pippen says that he and his firstborn both had a love for basketball, and that he is heartbroken by the loss.
Pippen also shared old photos of himself and Antron on his Twitter account, including a newspaper clipping that featured father and son. He asked fans to keep his ex-wife and the family in their prayers. "Please keep his mom, Karen, and all of his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers. A kind heart and beautiful soul gone way too soon. I love you, son, rest easy until we meet again," he said.
Sadly it is not Pippen's first time grieving the loss of a child. In 1994, after the birth of his twins Taylor and Tyler, the latter died only a few days after being born, per Yahoo! Life.
