Lauren London Encourages Her Children To Write Letters To Nipsey Hussle Anytime They Want To Speak To Him

Nipsey Hussle’s loss left a big hole in the lives of his family and friends. He is survived by his widow Lauren London and their son Kross Asghedom as well as his daughter Emani Asghedom from a previous relationship. Lauren also came into the romance with her own child, a boy named Kameron Carter, whom she shares with Lil Wayne.

Emani has been subject to an intense custody battle since her father’s passing. When Nip died in 2018, she was placed in the guardianship of his family by her mother, Tanisha Foster. At the time, Foster said her decision was fueled by her financial limitations.

She worried she would not be able to maintain the lifestyle that Emani had become accustomed to, so she left her in the care of Nipsey’s brother and sister. The family does not cooperate with her much or communicate with her so Foster has asked for full custody of her daughter.

While Nip’s family gave Foster a hard time, they have been fully supportive of his other baby mother, Lauren London. London has been raising her boys on her own and is still very close to Nipsey’s family. Nip also played a role in Kameron’s life, which is why the young man spoke at Nipsey’s funeral. He described seeing his late step-father in a dream where they reunited in paradise. In December of 2020, it was revealed that Nipsey had left his children an inheritance of $1 million each. While Lauren has control of Kross’ money, Nip’s sister is currently the one with legal authority over Emani’s money.

Lauren London has been working hard to create a life without Nipsey that is full of hope, understanding, and closure. The now single mother recently sat down with Angie Martinez to discuss how she struggled for a long time to find joy in life and almost considered ending it all. Nowadays, Lauren says she finds solace in her kids, her memories, and Nipsey’s legacy.

Lauren says she tried to keep it together for a while but got some sound advice from Sean “Diddy” Combs about letting her guard down and showing people the harder side of it all. “Puff pulled me aside and was like, ‘Look, you have shown everybody what it looks like to hold a man down and to love him. Now show them what it looks like when it all crumbles. That’s your responsibility.’ He’s like a real brother.”

Lauren passed this philosophy on to her kids as well. London explains that she wanted to be the one to tell her boys that Nipsey had passed and relied heavily on her experience at a healing retreat centered on death to help her. She uses words like transitioned instead of died and explains that Nip is all around them. Lauren says she takes them to church often and therapy and coaches them through their emotions as much as she can now.

When her boys are sad or missing their dad, she encourages them to write him letters with their feelings as a way to help them communicate with him. London tells them, “anytime there’s something you want to say, you might not hear him, but you’ll feel it, and follow that guidance and write letters or talk to him.”
