Nipsey Hussle’s Family Going Up Against His Daughter’s Mother, Tanisha Foster for Guardianship

The family of Nipsey Hussle (real name Ermias Ashgedom) has an upcoming court date with the mother of Nipsey’s 14-year-old daughter, Tanisha Foster to hammer out who will have guardianship duties over the child.

According to Radar Online, the battle for who will have custody of the deceased rapper’s daughter, Emani Asghedom will occur in a Los Angeles courtroom on April 27, 2023. The two sides had previously tried to reach a deal late last year but couldn’t do so.

Back in 2019, Hussle’s family, his brother Sam, sister Samantha and mother Angelique obtained guardianship of Nipsey‘s daughter because they stated that Foster was an unfit parent who had a history of drug and alcohol abuse. They were ordered to attend a November 30 meditation last year but they were unable to make a mutual agreement.

At the time Nipsey’s family filed the paperwork, they alleged that Foster was involved in a situation where she assaulted another person in front of her daughter, Emani, and other children were present. “Obviously, the behavior summarized herein endangered Emani’s well-being, but such behavior also makes Ms. Foster wholly unfit to act as guardian of the estate, and be able to manage Emani’s inheritance expected to exceed two million dollars ($2,000,000)” it stated on the paperwork.

She initially agreed with the family for them to gain guardianship because she stated that she did so because of her “financial limitations” at that time. But, Foster returned to court last year asking for it to be dissolved.

“Tanisha’s motivation for doing so was in recognition of her own financial limitations; her desire to maintain the standard of living and family contact the minor had experienced with the paternal family prior to her father’s death; and upon the verbal assurances that each of them would act in the best interests of Emani,” her attorney told the court.

Foster has stated that the family did not keep their word. They “frequently demonstrated their disdain for Emani’s mother in favor of Lauren London who is the mother of the other two minors and such attitude may impact the ability for (the family) to carry out their fiduciary duties as guardian of the minor’s estate.”

She also accuses them of using the finances and influences they do have to withhold “financial assistance and reducing visitation.”

“There are no circumstances or events in my life that would disqualify me for regaining my exclusive role as Emani’s parent. There is no longer any need for guardianship. Emani routinely asks me when are she and I going to be able to live together. She longs to be with me as her mother. I am begging the court to terminate the existing guardianship,” Tanisha wrote.

The 33-year-old Hussle was killed in front of his Marathon Clothing store in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles on March 31, 2019.
