Late rapper‘s baby mama filed legal documents for Emani Asghedom’s guardianship

A series of incidences and occurrences followed Emani’s father’s death. Initially, her mother had dual custody; it was alleged that she could not offer a safe environment for Emani. This resulted in a heated custody fight between Emani’s mother and her aunt, Samantha.

Samantha accused Tanisha of battling for custody to have unrestricted access to her fortune even though Tanisha came out to deny these allegations vehemently. She had already moved in with her aunt Samantha during the custody battle. Previously, Samantha had been a consistent presence in Emani’s life right from her childhood. From 2008 to 2018, Samantha had been living with Nipsey and Emani. She assisted Nipsey with Emani’s day-to-day care.

Eventually, the court gave Nipsey Hussle’s family custody of Emani and control over her inheritance. The court-appointed Samantha and Hussle’s brother, Sam Asghedom, and mother, Angelique Smith, to be guardians for Emani.

Death of her father

On 31st March 2019 at 3:18 pm, Emani’s father was shot at least ten times while in the parking lot of his store, Marathon Clothing, in South Los Angeles. Three people were wounded in the ordeal and rushed to the hospital. He was pronounced dead at 3:55 pm.

Gunshot wounds included: A shot to his right chest, a shot that entered his abdomen near his navel and severed his spinal cord, a gunshot wound to the right side of his back that penetrated his chest and struck his lung, and a gunshot wound to the posterior top of his scalp.

In addition, the perpetrator kicked Hussle in the head severally. Photos taken before her father’s death suggest that she may have witnessed the shooting since she was with him.
