Nipsey Hussle was an active father in his daughter Emani’s life prior to his passing, and his family is taking strides to make sure she stays close. The late rapper’s sister, Samantha Smith, reportedly filed for custody of the 7-year-old.
TMZ reports that Smith filed a request with the Los Angeles County Court to grant her full guardianship. Sources say Hussle was her primary caregiver until he was fatally shot and her biological mother is unable to care for her.
Samantha reportedly assisted in the care of Emani throughout her life and wants “to ensure the continued stability for Emani and ensure that she will be able to maintain her current and ongoing relationship” with Nipsey’s family.
Other sources reported that Emani’s birth mom, Chyna, didn’t even know Samantha filed for guardianship. The judge has yet to come to a decision.
