Nipsey Hussle’s Family In Custody Battle With Rapper’s Ex



According to RadarOnline, Nipsey Hussle’s brother, Sam Asghedom, is currently locked into a custody battle for his late brother’s daughter, Emani. Asghedom – also known as Blacc Sam – recently filed a third statue report as a part of Nipsey’s probate case. Explaining that the only reason there has been a delay in the court case is because of Hussle’s ex, Tanisha Foster.

He also explained that guardianship of Emani, who is 13-years-old, is still pending after Asghedom and his family obtained legal guardianship in 2019 briefly after Hussle’s passing. The family argued that Foster was unfit to be a parent and simply could not provide a stable home. This led to the rapper’s sister, Samantha Smith, and brother being appointed as Emani’s legal guardians.

However, in early 2022, Foster filed legal documents to obtain full custody of her daughter. She went on to explain that she only agreed to the original custody agreement because of her “own financial limitations; her desire to maintain the standard of living and family contact the minor had experienced with the paternal family prior to her father’s death; and upon the verbal assurances that each of them would act in the best interests of Emani.”

Things quickly turned sour shortly after the deal was agreed upon. Foster soon accusing Hussle’s family of “using their financial position and influence to disregard their priorities by controlling the desires of Emani and Tanisha by withholding financial assistance and reducing visitation.”

Since then, she has asked the court to appoint a “neutral financial planner” for Emani’ inheritance as well as custody. The minor is one of two beneficiaries of Nipsey’s estate, the other being the rapper’s son, Kross, whose mother is Lauren London.

Since Nipsey Hussle’s untimely passing in March 2019, Sam has been overseeing the rapper’s estate and has been paying off debts, approving deals and allocating funds.

Foster has since pleaded with the family to terminate the original agreement.

“There are no circumstances or events in my life that would disqualify me for regaining my exclusive role as Emani’s parent,” she wrote. “There is no longer any need for guardianship. Emani routinely asks me when are she and I going to be able to live together. She longs to be with me as her mother. I am begging the court to terminate the existing guardianship.”
