Nipsey Hussle’s first baby mama Tanisha Asghedom was reportedly an emotional wreck Tuesday (May 14) when she appeared in court alongside Nipsey’s sister, Samantha Smith, and his brother, Blacc Sam for a hearing on the guardianship of her and Nipsey’s 10-year-old daughter Emani.
According to TMZ, Tanisha broke down crying when she saw her daughter for the FIRST TIME in what she said was MONTHS.
The courtroom was reportedly cleared for 20 minutes while Tanisha and Emani spent some alone time together.
The hearing was pushed back to Friday, which is when a final decision will be made about who will have primary custody of Emani and the financial support they will receive from Hussle’s estate, which is worth millions.
Nipsey’s sister Samantha filed documents requesting legal guardianship last month because, according to sources close to the family, she believes Tanisha is unable to properly care for her. She was denied temporary guardianship until a court hearing.
Nipsey primarily took care of Emani before he died, but Samantha says she helped raise the 10-year-old as well and in seeking legal guardianship “to ensure the continued stability for Emani and ensure that she will be able to maintain her current and ongoing relationship” with her father’s family.
Nipsey’s brother, Blacc Sam, also filed a declaration in support of Samantha receiving guardianship of their niece.
Sam, meanwhile, is involved in another legal fight to take control of Nipsey’s estate, which includes about $2 million worth of assets.
Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed on March 31st outside his Marathon Clothing store in the Crenshaw neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Eric Holder, Hussle’s suspected killer, pled not guilty to murder charges in April, but he’ll need to find a new lawyer because Chris Darden quit the case after receiving a number of death threats from Hussle’s fans and supporters.
