Nipsey Hussle’s family has won a custody battle case against the mother of his eldest child.

Last year, an ongoing battle found the mother of Hussle’s daughter, Tanisha Foster, filing to regain custody of her child, Emani, and control of her estate.

The estate claimed she admitted to issues with substance abuse and alcohol back in 2019. The Probate Investigator recommended that Foster not be appointed guardian due to alleged issues with alcohol, being unemployed at the time and having no stable housing. 

The judge ruled that Nipsey’s mom Angelique, his brother Sam, and sister Samantha will be co-guardians over Emani’s finances, including her $2 million+ inheritance.

Hussle, real name Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was shot and killed by Eric Holder in 2019 in front of his clothing store. The “Last Time That I Checc’d” rapper left behind two children, his daughter Emani Asghedom and his son, Kross Asghedom.

Kross is under the custody of his mother, Lauren London, but 14-year-old Emani is now under the guardianship of Hussle’s family.
