Following the death of Nipsey Hussle in March, his sister Samantha Smith filed for sole custody of her 10-year-old niece Emani.

Emani previously lived with her father Nipsey Hussle and his girlfriend Lauren London but, following his unfortunate death Emani’s aunt Samantha took her in. The ongoing custody battle started with Hussle’s family believing that Emani’s mother Tanisha Foster was unfit to care for her daughter.

Hussle’s siblings Samantha and Blacc Sam attended a custody hearing with Tanisha Foster, the biological mother of Hussle’s daughter Emani. Prior to Nipsey’s death, Smith assisted in caring for Emani and wants “to ensure the continued stability for Emani and ensure that she will be able to maintain her current and ongoing relationship” with the rapper’s family.

According to TMZ, Smith will retain custody of the child for now. The hearing was sealed, but another date is scheduled for July.

As the hearing ended, Foster told TMZ that she was “pissed off” after leaving the courthouse. Foster’s lawyer, Larry Lewellyn, says he is working with Hussle’s family on a visitation schedule that will be best for Emani.
