On Tuesday (May 14), the mother of Nipsey Hussle’s daughter broke down in tears in court.
A custody battle over Nipsey Hussle’s 10-year-old daughter, Emani Asghedom, seems to be continuing between Asghedom’s mother, Tanisha Foster and Nipsey Hussle’s sister, Samantha Smith.
Asghedom, Smith, Foster, and Nipsey Hussle’s brother, Blacc Sam all appeared at a court hearing yesterday where a decision regarding Asghedom’s guardianship was supposed to be made, reports TMZ.
Although they all appeared in court yesterday, the court ruling date has been pushed back until May 17.
Foster and Asghedom spent about 20 minutes together yesterday while in court. Foster said that she hadn’t seen her daughter in months.
Before Foster left the courthouse, she vowed to fight for her daughter while talking to The Blast.
“I love my daughter and I’ll do whatever it takes to get her back,” Foster told The Blast.
Foster also shared a selfie on Instagram yesterday writing, “Love all my kids I’ll always rise to the occasion for them.”
Last month, Smith filed for emergency custody of Nipsey Hussle and Foster’s daughter stating that she assisted with raising her and that it would be in the child’s best interest to be placed in her care.
Nipsey Hussle’s brother, Blacc Sam and his father both filed declarations in support of Smith.
The “Victory Lap” rapper, who also shared a two-year-old son with longtime girlfriend, actress Lauren London, didn’t have a will in place prior to his passing. Now, Blacc Sam has filed documents for conservatorship over the late Los Angeles rapper’s estate, which is reportedly worth over $2million.
Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot on Mar. 31 outside of his apparel store, Marathon Clothing.
