Judge Denies Nispey Hussle's Sister Temporary Guardianship Of Daughter Emani, Sister Did Not Inform Emani's Mother Of Filing

​ ​ ​ ​

Nipsey Hussle's sister Samantha Smith's request for temporary guardianship of his daughter Emani Asghedom has been denied. Find out why inside...

Samantha Smith, the half sister of late rapper/activist Nipsey Hussle, recently filed for guardianship of her brother's daughter, Emani Asghedom. However, the judge did NOT rule in her favor.

Samantha, who reportedly lived with her brother and Emani up until about 2014 or 2015, tried to get an emergency order granting her temporary guardianship over the late rapper's daughter in an effort to "ensure that she can make legal custody decisions regarding Emani". It's also about keeping her near her paternal family “to ensure [Emani] can continue to live with family members with whom she has always had close ties.”

In her request, Samantha noted that she has “always been a presence in Emani’s life and along with the rest of Emani’s paternal family has assisted in her care.”

The documents were also signed by Nipsey's father, Dawit Asghedom.

Unfortunately for Samantha, the judge reportedly denied her request, and here's why.

The ruling stated, “No urgency demonstrated for granting this relief prior to hearing on May 14th.”

The judge also added that Emani’s mother, Tanisha, must be given notice of the upcoming hearing. In the paperwork Samantha filed, she said she did not want to inform Emani's mother of her request. It's alleged Nipsey's family believes Tanisha is unstable and unable to provide a safe and stable environment for Emani.

Tanisha has not responded publicly to these reports. Also, it's unclear what custody arrangement Nispey and Tanisha had before his untimely death. Conflicting rumors have been circulating on social media. Some allege Nipsey and Tanisha had joint custody, while others claim Nip had full custody of their daughter.

Samantha Smith's next court hearing is scheduled for May 14th.


Just a few days ago, Nipsey's longtime girlfriend/son's mother Lauren London posted up a tribute to her man:



We're still sending up prayers for Lauren and the rest of the Asghedom family.
