Mother of Nipsey Hussle’s Daughter Claims Family Has Cut Her Off
Tanisha Foster, the mother of Nipsey Hussle‘s 10-year-old daughter, Emani, claims that his family has completely cut her off since he passed away.
According to The Blast, court documents show that Tanisha Foster filed for guardianship of her daughter, Emani Asghedom. She is fighting against the joint guardianship petition that was recently filed by Nipsey’s sister, brother, and mother.
“I strongly oppose both of the petitions filed by Samantha Alexandria Smith, Samiel Asghedom and Angelique Smith,” Foster writes. “I am the other of Emani Asghedom and there is no good reason my rights as her mother should be taken away from me, or otherwise reduced as her mother.”
She believes the family is no longer interested in helping her and has even removed her from the home that Nipsey rented for her.
She says that she and Nipsey “always shared the responsibility of parenting Emani,” and since his death, she has “had to depend on the goodwill of family and friends for my food, clothing, shelter, and transportation. Ermias had always provided for these needs up until his date of death.”
“No one seems to care about the impact Ermias’ death has had upon me and Emani. I have been maligned as being an unfit mother, a golddigger, and someone not worthy of any voice in the matter of my daughter and her future. I have no financial means of my own to care for myself or Emani,” Foster adds.
“When he suddenly died,” Foster claims, “I came home one day to discover that the locks had been changed. His family is not willing to pay the rent. I am still in the process of putting all of my personal belongings into a storage facility.”
She concluded that the family allegedly does not respect her as the mother of Emani, but, a hearing is scheduled next week to resolve the matter.
