Nipsey Hussle‘s sister has emerged victorious in her quest to be the legal guardian of the late rapper’s daughter Emani.
The rap star, whose name is Ermias Asghedom, was gunned down in Los Angeles on March 31.
His sister Samantha Smith set off a custody battle with his daughter’s mother Tanisha Foster, claiming it was Nip and his family who were the major presence in Emani’s life along with the rest of Emani’s paternal family.
A judge ruled in favor of Samantha and officially made Nipsey’s sister the guardian of his child.
While the ruling is sealed, Nipsey’s family is still currently attempting to work out a visitation schedule for Tanisha Foster, who was extremely unhappy and visibly upset with the verdict.
Tanisha’s rough past may go against her in future dates of the custody case. In addition to having a warrant out for her arrest right now due to an unsettled DUI case that took place in 2017, she’s had many arrests between the years of 2006 and 2007.
In addition to Emani, Nipsey has a two-year-old son named Kross with Lauren London.
