Samantha Smith who is Nipsey Hussle‘s sister has filed for guardianship over his 10-year-old daughter, Emani Asghedom.
Her recent petition was filed to make sure the girl “can continue to live with family members with whom she has always had close ties.”
She said she has “always been a presence in Emani’s life and along with the rest of Emani’s paternal family has assisted in her care.”
The late Grammy-nominated rapper’s father, Dawit Asghedom, gave his blessing in the paperwork for Smith to become Emani’s legal guardian.
Emani’s mom is a woman named Tanisha, who goes by the name Chyna Hussle. It’s unclear why she didn’t file for custody or if she’s even aware of Smith’s petition.
Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, also leaves behind a 2-year-old son, Kross Asghedom, with longtime girlfriend Lauren London.
The 33-year-old made sure both of his children were well cared for prior to his murder on March 31 in Los Angeles.
