Famed trainer to the stars Tracy Anderson is mourning the sudden death of her ex-husband Eric, who has passed away at the age of 48.
In a statement to People magazine, Tracy’s company said, “We are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of Eric Anderson. Eric was a true friend to Tracy, a loving and incredibly dedicated father to their son Sam, and always willing to lend a helping hand to many of us at Tracy Anderson throughout the years. Our hearts are grieving with Tracy and her family during this difficult time.”
On Sunday, Eric was found dead by police officers responding to a call from his sister. Carmel Lt. Joe Bickel told The Indianapolis Star, “His sister hadn’t heard from him in a couple days, which she thought was odd because he was fighting some type of illness.”
According to Hamilton County Coroner John Chalfin, his death was “cardiac-related, but natural causes until doc can confirm that in a report,” which will be “issued within 7 to 10 days.” Sources close to Anderson revealed that he was suffering from pneumonia, which can cause cardiac issues.
Eric played for the New York Knicks in the '90s. Eric and Tracy tied the knot in 1998, but called it quits ten years later.
