Mother of Nipsey Hussle’s daughter accuses his family of cutting her off financially

Mother of Nipsey Hussle’s daughter accuses his family of cutting her off financially after his death

The mother of Nipsey Hussle’s 10-year-old daughter Emani has accused the late rapper’s family of removing her from the apartment he once covered for her and leaving nothing to her following his death. 

The Blast obtained court documents that revealed Tanisha Foster filed a motion in the guardianship case of Emani Asghedom. 

Her move is in opposition to a joint guardianship petition filed by Nipsey’s sister, brother and mother.

‘I strongly oppose both of the petitions filed by Samantha Alexandria Smith, Samiel Asghedom and Angelique Smith,’ Foster said. 

‘I am the mother of Emani Asghedom and there is no good reason my rights as her mother should be taken away from me, or otherwise reduced as her mother.’

Foster also asserted that she never saw a ‘court order ever taking Emani away from me; or any court order that indicates that is not in her best interest to have me in her life.’

According to Foster, she and Nipsey ‘always shared the responsibility of parenting Emani.’ 

And his passing has left her ‘to depend on the goodwill of family and friends for my food, clothing, shelter and transportation. Ermias had always provided for these needs up until his date of death.’ 

Foster added that Nipsey ‘also gave me substantial sums of cash that I used for the benefit of Emani and myself.’

She continued: ‘No one seems to care about the impact Ermias’ death has had upon me and Emani. I have been maligned as being an unfit mother, a golddigger, and someone not worthy of any voice in the matter of my daughter and her future.’

Foster went on to say that she has ‘no financial means of my own to care for myself or Emani’ and that the rapper was paying for the downtown Los Angeles loft she called home. 

‘When he suddenly died, I came home one day to discover that the locks had been changed. His family is not willing to pay the rent. I am still in the process of putting all of my personal belongings into a storage facility,’ she said.  

‘If everyone was truly interested in doing what is best for Emani, they would treat me as her mother and not in the manner that they have,’ she said to wrap things up. 

The situation will be addressed at a hearing next week. 

Nipsey died after he was gunned down outside his clothing store in south Los Angeles in March.

The rapper was also father to two-year-old son Kross Asghedom with his long-term girlfriend, Lauren London.
