Nipsey Hussle's Baby Mama Breaks Down In Tears In Court Over Custody Battle
A messy custody battle has come to fruition over Nipsey Hussle’s 10-year-old daughter, Emani Asghedom. 

On Tuesday, the last rapper’s sister (Samantha Smith), his brother (Samiel Asghedom) and his baby mama Tanisha Foster were in court over the legal guardianship of Emani following Nipsey’s passing. 

Foster (also known as Chyna Hussle) showed up and made it clear that she wants to see her daughter and ” – according to a custody order obtained by The Blast between Nipsey and Foster from 2013 – she was awarded both physical and legal joint-custody with Nip,” HotNewHipHop writes.

While they had joint custody of Emani, the 10-year-old lived with Nipsey, who also shared a two-year-old son with longtime girlfriend Lauren London. 

According to TMZ, Tanisha will also be filing for child support as she seeks financial aid from the West Coast emcee’s estate.

The L.A. Department of Children and Family Services also got involved into the matter just to make sure Emani gets to be placed in the best home since she’s still a minor.

Nipsey's baby mama reportedly broke down in tears at the sight of her daughter, whom she said she hadn't seen in months. TMZ reports that courtroom was then cleared as Mother and daughter spent about 20 minutes together. 

The hearing has reportedly been pushed until Friday.

Outside of the courthouse, Tanisha says she is committed to fighting for her child. She told The Blast: “I love my daughter and I’ll do whatever it take to get her back.”

We’ll keep you updated on the final decision.
