Nipsey Hussle’s Brother & Mother Request To Be Additional Co-Guardians Of His Daughter
The fight for Nipsey Hussle’s daughter Emani continues as the late rapper’s brother and mother have also requested to be named as co-guardians.
According to The Blast, court documents show that Nipsey’s sister, Samantha Smith, filed an updated petition for guardianship of Emani where they are asking for Emani’s uncle, Samiel Asghedom and Emani’s grandmother, Angelique Smith, to “be appointed as co-guardians with Samantha Smith.”
The petition writes that they have been a “constant and strong presence in Emani’s life. They have participated in her care and upbringing since her birth. Since the unfortunate murder of Emani’s father in March 2019, Samiel and Angelique have assisted in providing care for Emani.”
“The request to appoint Samiel and Angelique as co-guardians is, per the recommendation of Minor’s Counsel, a form of ‘insurance policy’ so that should anything happen to one of Emani’s guardians, other guardians are already in place to continue in providing for Emani’s care without having to return to Court.”
Emani’s mother, Tanisha Foster, is also fighting for her daughter and argues that Smith took Emani into her possession after Nip’s death and had no right to do so.
