Nipsey Hussle's Sister Files For Guardianship Of His Daughter

Nipsey Hussle’s sister has requested legal guardianship of his daughter. According to TMZ, the late rapper’s sister, Samantha Smith, filed documents in L.A. County Superior Court asking for guardianship of 10-year-old Emani Asghedom. Sources told the publication that Smith doesn’t feel that Emani’s biological mother is able to care for her.

Nipsey was Emani’s primary caretaker prior his death last month. Smith said that she assisted in caring for Emani throughout her live and wants "to ensure the continued stability for Emani and ensure that she will be able to maintain her current and ongoing relationship" with Nipsey’s family.

Nipsey also has a second child, 2-year-old Kross, with Lauren London. Kross lives with London and is not the subject of the conservatorship.

A judge has yet to rule on the petition for guardianship.

Nipsey Hussle was killed outside of his Marathon Clothing store on March 31st.
