Nipsey Hussle was killed on March 31 outside of his Marathon Clothing store. The rapper had 2-year-old Kross Asghedom with Lauren London and 10-year-old girl Emani Asghedom with Tanisha Foster. Since his death, Foster has been in a custody war with Nipsey’s sister Samantha.
According to TMZ, Hussle’s family reportedly believes Tanisha is an unfit mother. Samantha claims she has always helped to raise Emani. She also wrote in a petition that the child should stay with her to “ensure the continued stability for Emani.” Samantha is requesting to be the legal guardian of Emani.
As of now, the judge has ruled for Emani to stay with the sister but there is another hearing scheduled for July. Outside of the courtroom, she said she was “pissed off” but didn’t say much else to the TMZ cameras. See below:
Yesterday, it was reported that Foster has a bench warrant issued for missing a court date for the case on May 15, therefore, her probation was revoked. She is on probation for a DUI back in 2016, according to TMZ.
The site also claims, “In 2007 she was busted for vandalism, annoying phone calls and disturbing the peace. Those charges were eventually dismissed after she completed her probation. In 2006, she was arrested for resisting arrest and disturbing the peace.
Hussle’s family might be the most stable place for the child. Although The Marathon Clothing store closed its doors, it’s still fully operational online. There are unconfirmed reports that Marathon Clothing has made $10 million since the rapper’s untimely death. If that was true, coupled with Nipsey Hussle’s estimated net worth of $8 million, his multiple investments that included buying a strip mall, have his family set up for life.
The suspect was killed Hussle is 29-year-old Eric Holder, was arrested on April 2. He has been charged with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.
They reportedly did not know each other and it was not a gang-related shooting. While Hussle was associated with gangs, he appeared to be distancing himself from that life. Shortly before his death, he was talking with Steve Soboroff, president of the Los Angeles Police Commission, about how to avoid youth from getting involved in gangs.
Rest in power, Nipsey Hussle.
