The Asghedoms' Custody Battle
It came as a surprise to many when the late Nipsey Hussle's family battled Emani's mom, Tanisha Foster, in court. The Asghedoms claimed that Foster was not fit to take care of Nipsey's child, and sought for primary custody.
A judge signed off on this decision, and Nipsey's immediate family were appointed guardians of Emani, much to the disapproval of Foster. Despite this, they worked on a visitation schedule for the distraught mom.
Guardianship Over Kross' Funds
Meanwhile, after the discovery that the late rapper put up a trust fund for both his children that leave them with approximately $1 million each, his longtime girlfriend Lauren London was given custodianship of their three-year-old son Kross' estate.
Emani's inheritance will be under the custodianship of Nipsey's immediate family members until she turns of legal age.
Happy Birthday, Emani!
