The judge evidently decided not to grant guardianship to the birth mother Tenisha Foster, who has been described by Hussle’s family as “unfit.”
The court said Nip’s family provided sufficient evidence for their petition. Subsequently, the late MC’s siblings — Samantha Smith and Sam Asghedom — and his mother Angelique Smith are now Emani’s guardians.
Lauren London, who has a 3-year-old son named Kross with the slain rapper, was also in court on Tuesday (October 15) to ask for guardianship over their son’s estate.
Although London and Nip’s family have clashed when it comes to Kross, a judge ultimately determined London will be in charge of his finances. The child is reportedly expected to inherit roughly $1 million with another $1 million going to Emani.
