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.
