Seven months after he was fatally shot outside of his clothing store, Nipsey Hussle’s family has officially been awarded sole custody of his 10-year-old daughter. Nipsey’s sister, Samantha Smith, first sought to obtain guardianship over Emani in April.
A judge has appointed Nipsey’s immediate family, including his siblings, Smith, Sam “Blacc Sam” Asghedom, and his mother, Angelique Smith, as Emani’s guardians. Emani is from a previous relationship between the late rapper and a woman named Tanisha Foster, whom Nipsey’s family felt was “unfit” to properly parent.
Furthermore, Lauren London was granted guardianship over the pair’s 3-year-old son’s estate — her only child with the late rapper. The report stated that London filed for guardianship in July, four months after Nipsey’s passing. She will now have a legal say in the management of her longtime partner’s estate as it pertains to their son. Both Emani and Kross are expected to inherit $1 million each when they are of age.
