Nipsey Hussle's estate was sued by a music company that claims the slain rapper failed to pay a prior judgment of $32,000.

Paramount Recording Group claims Nipsey, 33, owed the company $32,000 in a default judgment before his death in March.

The company filed a creditor's claim with Nipsey's estate, according to The Blast. The company claims it won a judgment against the rapper and a third party in 2012.

The rapper's brother, Blacc Sam, filed documents to be named administrator for financial control of Nipsey's estate.

Nipsey's sister, Samantha Smith, filed a separate motion seeking guardianship of her brother's 10-year-old daughter, Emani Asghedom.

Nipsey, who was a savvy businessman, did not leave a will.

A judge denied Samantha's emergency motion for guardianship and pushed back a family court hearing to decide the matter.

The judge ruled the guardianship request was not urgent, since Emani already lives with her. The judge also said the child's mother must be notified of the hearing, which is scheduled for Friday, May 17.

Emani's mother, Tanisha Foster, pictured left, broke down in tears when she saw her daughter in a courtroom earlier this week. Tanisha has not seen Emani in months.

Tanisha was not invited to attend Nipsey's funeral at the Staple's Center in April.

    Well they can afford to clear this debt if truly owed and move forward. Business continues.

    I’m just keeping those children in my thoughts. Much power, protection, grace and light to them.

    Huh, won in 2012 but didn’t try to collect until 2019??? BS!!

    The shade..

  • jwoo250

    Why are they taking children away from their biological mother's over money? Its so sad. It reminds me of how Ludacris did the mother of his daughter he had after cheating on his wife. He took custody to avoid paying her child support. The same as what DeWayne Wade did to his ex-wife. Children need their mother's. Unless the mom is abusive and completely unfit. They need to be with their moms. Makes me sick to my stomach.

    In the end I hope it backfires and they end up taking care of their biological mom when their older with the money they tried to keep away from her...lmao

  • PhillyFacts

    Sad they would keep that child away from her mother, she already loss her father. People be doing way tooooo darn much, greed is a mother.

  • jwoo250

    And unfortunately as a child you don't see anything wrong. All that poor baby sees is that she gets spoiled and doesn't have to live in the ghetto. They done tainted her mind against her mom. I'm all to familiar with this tactic.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I guess they aren't supposed to collect what's owed because he's dead? Nah, you going to pay what you owe.

    LL:Well they can afford to clear this debt if truly owed and move forward.
    It's not that simple since Nipsey didn't leave a will and no one knows who's in charge of running the business and who has the power to write checks to pay off debts.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Basically. Dead or alive folks still want their money

  • Alextra Ballard

    Hmmm..yew think just becuz Nips didn’t have a “Will” it made him less than a “savvy” bidness man?

  • Yardgirl

    I have never like Luda since that whole debacle with the baby. The mother now has some kind of custody/visitation because she always posts her on IG (she posted her ballet recital over the weekend and elem school graduation this morning) and the child seems happy and loved.

  • Topic Influencer

    When someone croaks, they still gotta pay their debts. Its as simple as that. Its no getting around it. I mean you can not pay. Then they can sue the executor of the estate. Its easier to just pay the hell up

  • Angelique Johnson

    Please let this man be.

  • Yardgirl

    That's what I'm saying too, what does one have to do with the other? The reality is that most young people do not think they are going to die and making a will is the last thing on their minds. Some older people too. I know a woman who was dying of cancer and still would not "make time" to make a will. Denial is a mo-fo and so is irresponsibility!!

  • Rayscoty

    "Samantha Smith, filed a separate motion seeking guardianship of her brother's 10-year-old daughter, Emani Asghedom"

    This sound so weird...

  • Alextra Ballard

    Nobidy but the court knows how much Nips estate is really worth. This is finna be an absolute mess. I hope there Is enuff money so that his kids are taken care of.

  • Trey

    Pay your damn bills!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Not after all of the lawyers get their share.

  • Alextra Ballard

    The susta wants Emani and the brother wants control ova his estate...what in all out hell kinna shidt is this.

  • Mslife

    Why has the mother not seen her child in months? If they had joint custody why when he was living she not seen her child? I understand that child was being raise in a different environment than the mother could. But I don't understand the reason she hadn't seen her child. If he was or anyone stopping her she could go to court and state her case. Most times in joint custody their is time spent with the time for both children. In the end I hope the little girl wants are consider if she want to live with her mother let her. If she wants to stay with his family let her. Just allow her time with the other side too.

  • Renee26

    Right... He had 6yrs to pay that debt but didn't... They'll get it from the estate

  • Renee26

    Allllll of this

  • Renee26

    They probably tried and failed

  • Nik

    This should be a wake up call to everyone that leaving something in writing to make sure your estate is in order after your death is compulsory. Whether you are rich or broker than broke, people need clear instructions about what to do with whatever is left behind. I had family members pass with no will and although they did not have a whole lot, it was still a headache for all involved.

  • currvalicious

    Wondering bwhy Tanisha hasn't seen her daughter "in months". If she & Nipsey had a custody agreement in place. And if she hated Lauren so much, why would she allow Emani to stay months on end w/her Dad (assuming he & Lauren were living together).

  • Nik

    While my grandparents were still living I tried to get my eldest uncle to talk to them about a will as they would not listen to me but would listen to him. He didn't want to hear it. Literally went off on me. After they passed away and everyone was fighting over the house, it became a thorn in my uncle's side because he lived in the house. He wound up having to move and the house was sold. Now we no longer have a central place for family gatherings like we did in the past. A few of us are still hurt over that.

  • 11pink123

    Pareamount is cancelled for this shyt! Not messing with them, not watching none of they movies shows or nothing. F—k them.

  • T865!

    Well they should’ve sued him then????? What’s the difference now?

  • Yardgirl

    Damn shame!! SMH. Unc should have listened to you because when people die, the devil comes out to play!! I just don't understand the entitlement of the money hungry. Greed is the root of all evil

  • Wildcat34

    Yes, it looks like Ludacris's wife is raising the daughter as her own.

  • sunni_daze

    Not to mention she made a post stating "she and Nip never stopped messing around and LL was aware." It made me wonder the same "why hasn't she seen her child".

  • Nik

    You know it! When people die and there's someone left behind who needs money, the right is real. That's why I try to live my financial life in a way that I don't have to wait for someone to die to have something.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Alexa play Sly&Family Stones “it’s a family affair”....cuz this is precisely wut this shidt is

  • Trey

    Another example of "king" Nipsey not having his affairs in order

  • sandi

    ...And so it begins. I said this a couple of days ago. A two million dollar estate will see every penny going to legal costs, attorneys for the estate, attorneys to protect the children's interest, attorneys to protect his music...so on and so forth. That two million will be gone in a year, if not sooner. From what I read here, there appears to be some money coming into the estate, but once the hype is gone that source will slow down. Creditors will get paid, they may not get every dime they want, but courts will not allow for those who acted in good faith to totally get stiffed. The best thing for everybody is try to get these kids enough money so if they want an education, they can pursue that. Won't be enough money for everybody to be living large.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Tanisha lost custody of the older kids she had and never got it back...this woman is petty and allegedly drinks lean like its alkaline water...she only wants Emani because of the check attached to her...she is not mother material...

  • MrsSpice1

    Well maybe one of the many so called industry friends he has will pay it off...Game? Jay-z?? Tip?!? Lets see them come out n help out with this ???!

  • 11pink123

    Nip has his affairs in order. Believe me, don’t let these blogs fool you.

    King Nip????

  • YellowSauce

    They need to leave those children's money alone ... i know they need to be taken care of and looked after but this just seems like they are after the loot ... This folks is why your paper work needs to be in order because if not fighting will ensue ... Also fellas you need to stop creating children with women you hate .... I'm sick of the hating baby momma thing and I know things happen like broken condoms lol but if you don't want these issues which can be avoided you are stuck unnecessarily to someone you hate and it affects your children

  • Yardgirl

    Me too!! My brother did some shady shit with our family house and we did not see it until my last parent (mom) died. Good thing my sis never trusted his greedy ass and had a contingency that nullified his trickery. Le sigh.

  • Yardgirl

    Yes along with the other child that she shares with Luda. Like I said the child's mom is in her life and that's a good thing. Lil miss will know who her real moms is!! :-))

  • M J

    If he had his affairs in order, there wouldn't be a judgment from 2012. The poster above is right, they need to secure the money they can for this kids. Theyre probably making a lot with all the hype from his death tragically BUT it will inevitably end in time like with all artist who p&$$ to soon. I agree that the family wont be ballin either, unfortunately MOST people hadn't heard of him outside of Cali prior to his demise. Sadly but true. I only heard of him because of Mrs London and even then I didnt know he was a rapper.

  • Nik

    Sis is on point!

  • 11pink123

    I would tell you how rich ppl operate with money but I’ll keep you guessing. Just know ppl that have access to anything over 250k don’t operate like regular folks.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Somebody pay them dayum ppl they funk-ass 32k and move along... I cant stand petty ass ppl, they can bill it to their insurance as a loss but whatever! Get Snoop on the line!

  • sandi

    The "love" of money-greed, grasping. Money is and has always been a necessary means to living.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Me too. I only knew of him because he dated her. I often wondered what she saw in him because again I didn't know who he was. I just thought he was another Thug until he passed and they talked a lot about how he gives back etc... I still feel so sorry for her because she absolutely adores that man. It was written all over her face every time you saw them together.

  • 11pink123

    But still somehow all his ppl taken care of though. They All own businesses, Houses paid, no car notes and kids got a trust fund. Nip obviously still handle business just not the way you use too seeing it being handled. He did not wait til he passed to disburse his money, he disbursed it while he was here.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    But TMZ said his brother wants the daughter to live with the mother. there were pics of them together and everything That says a lot. IDK if he has changed his tune yet but the last time I read which was a couple days ago he is in agreement with the mother.

  • 11pink123

    Nip financially took care of all his ppl before he left. His people are well taken care of. He made sure of that before he passed and we double backed to put a seal on that after he passed.

    So trust if shyt was really that real, his fans would pay that 32k easily, don’t trip!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    The custody hearing was postponed...Blac Samm is supporting his sister in this matter...

  • free

    nah, i think karen civil killed all goodwill efforts.

  • free

    this is pretty standard...and they gon get it too.

  • sandi

    Seriously? Obviously you in the know, so I guess you are his people. That being said, then those who did business with him, and can show they are owed money, then I would suppose you all would seal that too, because if they have their paper in order - then a court is definitely going to seal that as well.

    I don't think anybody is tripping. It's a discussion site and that's what folk are doing is discussing.

    So, it sounds like all the creditors, kids, business partners, real estate people should be in good shape.

  • sandi

    First, rich people who handling old money rightfully do things differently. The noveau riche not so much. So, are you saying that NH was old money and it has been guarded by real guardians of money, banks, trusts, stockbrokers- those with the reputations of handling lots of money and old money. Clearly, you are in the know of the finances. Certainly, you are right filing bankruptcy doesn't always mean you broke, but it certainly means you need to stop the bleeding because that cash ain't flowing right. Good for you all taking good care of his money.

  • Logan Roberts

    Debts don't die with you ?

  • 11pink123

    His people are in good shape. Meaning his family, business partners and friends. They straight!

    It says judgement by default, which means he never acklowdged it, never responded. Could either mean he did not know about it or he did not give af about it.

    Regardless his family and kids are straight, even if they took that whole 2 mil they keep bringing up, his family and friends have already been taken care of.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    The difference now is that there were claims that he was a multimillionaire despite that not being true. But now, this company can bring that up in court.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    I doubt he was worth much. And yes, this is a mess.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    How do you know this to be a true? Are you a mortgage broker or car loan lender or the bank with the kids' alleged trust? Nipsey's family is fighting right now because they ain't got nothing lol He didn't disburse what he didn't have. Y'all are delusional.

  • 11pink123

    Yeah they can. I’m not sure if any one should pay them though, cause they being petty af over 32k really. I think we need to keep doing what we doing. All $ In, no money out. F—k them. File bankruptcy.

  • 11pink123

    They do after you file bankruptcy

  • T865!

    That makes no sense it all.

  • 11pink123

    I don’t know what to tell you. Just keep thinking 2 mil is all he and his family has if that makes you feel better.

  • 11pink123

    All $ in and no $ out. 1 day you will understand what he meant by that. For now. ???

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    Seems to be nothing civil about her

  • 11pink123

    Girl miss me with this old money, new money groupie talk.

    Nobody with money is stupid enough to put the majority of they money in no bank account. Big azz companies don’t even put they cash in bank accounts, they only put enough to pay they bills, the IRS and they employees.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Big cockroaches

  • Ms. Jackson

    Rightttttttt! I don't believe they will have any worries. RIH Nip$

  • JENNYJONES1

    THEY GOT THE JUDGMENT IN 2012 AND NEVER CAME AFTER IT FOR ALMOST 7 YRS UNTIL HE'S DEAD.OK.........JENNY JONES!!!

  • free

    cause he didn't have shit to come after.

  • supastar

    Here we go.... Why they wait until he's dead to sue?? smh

  • 11pink123

    They did go after him, they went to court and got a judgement. Nip did not respond to any of their claims. So that either means he never knew about it or he did not give af about it. I’m guessing he was in between labels and one of them was supposed to pay for it.

    Nip obviously don’t have his money in a place they can touch it or they would’ve snatched it out of his bank account when he was alive if they already had a judgement. So now they gone try and take the equity out of the property if the brother ever tries to sell it, which is the only way they will get their money.

    So with all this been said, this should tell you. Nip wasn’t stupid enough to keep his funds tied up in a bank which means these blogs don’t know his true Net Worth. ????? all $ in

  • 11pink123

    Debt cleared! Don’t forget to update and report that!
