Family of the late Nipsey Hussle is current undergoing a legal guardianship battle involving his 13 year old daughter her mother, Lauren London and various others.
According to reports from The Blast , Tanisha Foster mother of Emani Asghedom has taken legal action objecting to the current guardianship agreement set in place.
Court documents obtained by the outlet read that Tanisha claims that her and Nipsey were in a “loving relationship” at the time of his tragic death since the birth of their daughter back in 2008. She says that during his lifetime the rapper and entrepreneur shared custody of Emani and that he served as the primary source of financial support for them both including housing, food and additional living expenses.
“Tanisha’s motivation for doing so was in recognition of her own financial limitations; her desire to maintain the standard of living and family contact the minor had experienced with the paternal family prior to her father’s death; and upon the verbal assurances that each of them would act in the best interests of Emani,” reads official document.
However she argues that the family is , “using their financial position and influence to disregard their priorities by controlling the desires of Emani and herself by withholding financial assistance and reducing visitation.” Tanisha has also argued that one of the major issues is that the family deeply favor’s Lauren over her.
Tanish’s legal team argues that Nipsey’s family has, “ frequently demonstrated their disdain for Emani’s mother in favor of Lauren London who is the mother of the other two minors and such attitude may impact the ability for (the family) to carry out their fiduciary duties as guardian of the minor’s estate.“
Tanisha says within the issued claims, “I have continued to be an active part of Emani’s life. She spends the night with me often, I take her to school, and I continue to do the things a parent would do with their child. I am very unhappy that the guardians will not take my calls. They have blocked me on their cell phones. I have to go through a third party or Emani to communicate with the guardians.”
There are no circumstances or events in my life that would disqualify me for regaining my exclusive role as Emani’s parent. There is no longer any need for guardianship. Emani routinely asks me when are she and I going to be able to live together. She longs to be with me as her mother. I am begging the court to terminate the existing guardianship.”
Sources confirm that the family is scheduled to appear in court on March 25, 2022, and that a judge will decide on the issues at hand.
