Nipsey Hussle's sister Samantha Smith won the first round in her battle to gain legal guardianship over his 10-year-old daughter, Emani Asghedom, after the rapper was shot and killed on March 31.

In April, Samantha filed an emergency petition in family court to be given guardianship over Emani, claiming the child's mother, Tanisha Foster, was unstable and unfit.

In her petition, Samantha said she played a crucial role in raising Emani while her bother was alive and she wanted to "ensure the continued stability for Emani and ensure that she will be able to maintain her current and ongoing relationship" with his family.

A judge sided with Samantha on Monday, granting her temporary custody over Emani. Another hearing in the matter is scheduled for July, according to TMZ.

The hearing was sealed since the child is a minor.

Tanisha's lawyer spoke with TMZ after the hearing. He said he's working with Nipsey's sister on a visitation schedule for Tanisha that's in Emani's best interest.

Tanisha left the courtroom in tears and she told TMZ she's "pissed off" by the court's decision.

Tanisha had previously accused Samantha of taking Emani from her without authorization.

Nipsey and Tanisha shared joint custody of the girl when he was alive. In a hearing earlier this month, Tanisha broke down and cried when she saw Emani for the first time. The judge cleared the room to give the two 20 minutes together.

Tanisha said she had not seen Emani since she went to stay with her father in the days before he died.

In addition to Emani, Tanisha has two teenagers from previous relationships. Rumor has it that she lost custody of those children as well.

On Monday, another judge filed an arrest warrant for Tanisha stemming from an old DUI case in 2017. Tanisha skipped a hearing that was scheduled for May 15, and a warrant was issued for her arrest.

    Although the mama needs to brush up on her parenting skills, the brother and sister still have shady motives.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    I agree! It’s about nothing more than money.

  • iWasteTime

    I wonder why Tanisha doesn't have custody of her oldest children.

  • tintin

    it's sad that she hasn't seen her daughter in a while, why are they keeping the little girl from her. She may not be the best but let her see her kid.

  • Trey

    Obviously there is evidence she is unfit...I work with a woman who has 4 kids and dont have custody of any of them

  • OvertheMississippi

    I just hope this works out for the good of baby girl. All of the adults seem to have issues. Sister is obviously a gang-banger, so.............

  • OvertheMississippi

    Yeah, sadly!

  • luVn_liFe…

    awwh look at taneshia in that pick up top.. she looked real well.. bless them

  • Blaque Mahogany

    She really favors Lauren. Dimples and all. Kinda eerie.

  • luVn_liFe…

    Yes she does ALOT & Emani looks just like her deddy in the above pic

  • Topic Influencer

    God bless this whole situation.

  • luVn_liFe…

    it's sad for Emani..loosing her dad and now not seeing her mom. And for Taneshia.. she is clearly in a tough spot

  • GAPeach

    None of them? I can't even imagine having to wake up and not see my baby every day.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    This what happens when you got better lawyers

  • luVn_liFe…

    some people (mothers/fathers) are born into a bad situation and havent been parented w/love. just cycles of abuse wether it be physical,emotional and the cycle begins. its sad. Ive been there

  • Shenanigans1

    Well baby, when you keep proving that you are unfit and don’t have it together this is what happens. Gettin dui’s and also losing custody of two other children doesn’t help at all either. If the courts can clearly see that this child was able to grow and thrive under her fathers care then clearly she needs to stay in that environment. You can’t just uproot a child like this just off of GP.

  • free

    she looks much younger in person. oh well, whatever she (and nipsey) did in the past, it's time to step up. he stepped up and now it's time for her to put the shenanigans aside and step up, as well. the judge will be watching.

  • free

    i didn't realize it as much until i saw the courthouse video.

  • Seldomseen

    Exactly, and if Nip had not made it, I don’t see much difference between the mother and sister.

  • Shenanigans1

    That’s sad. She more than likely thought she could handle it and sadly couldn’t. Kids aren’t accessories or something to add to your life like a side item. It’s work 25/8. They literally change everything. The way your money, time and attitude is set up is all affected once they come. If you aren’t ready for that then you shouldn’t do it!...and we’ll talk about that on another date.

  • GAPeach

    I agree. I was so blessed because I was surrounded by love when I grew up, and I make sure my son gets all the love and affection he deserves.

  • MJF

    Little mama looks just like Nipsey. She's too cute

  • chan chan

    This is a no brainer... she lost custody of the two oldest, she had pics of lean she’s drinking in her cup, she’s always moving (from what I seen on social media) hussle had custody anyways, and warrant out for her arrest. If his family just left that child with Tanisha and something happens the first thing everyone will ask, “why would they leave her with that worthless mother”....... let’s stop with all the theatrics because she’s female.

  • Seldomseen

    For the love of God do right by this little girl! Would it be possible for the estate to get the mother decent housing( if she does not have it) and put a parenting plan in place so the child could benefit from the love and guidance from both sides of her family. I know the mom might be rough around the edges.....but hell Nipsey and his siblings were still rough around the edges, they just had earned some money.

  • chan chan

    Brush up is an understatement

  • chan chan

    If I have to do alllll of that so she could be a mother the child need to stay where she is. They don’t do allll of that for fathers in need. She’s not concerned about the two older kids she doesn’t have custody of.

  • tintin

    you can't trust a woman that don't have custody of her kids though.

  • luVn_liFe…

    tough crowd. but yeah you are right. obviously her/nip had it worked out and it was fine when he was here.
    We clearly do not know the whole story

  • Seldomseen

    From my understanding, she shared custody with Nipsey... so why can’t she share custody with them.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Yep....It's the. Money! If he was Broke, and there was no comrade about him, this wouldn't be. They are not thinking of that child who just lost one parent and may yearn for her living parent. They should've sat with the mother and attempt to arrange some sort of on going visitation. This is a mess!

  • chan chan

    The crowd isn’t tough enough. I personally believe more information that she doesn’t want out will leak if she just doesn’t keep things status quo.

  • luVn_liFe…

    you are right (i giggled at your comment) its a $hi@#y situation.. Yes she should be with her mother however Tanesha is living a little on the wild side and g&d forbid if something happened to her we would DEF Be outraged and pissed awf like w/lil Maleah.

  • chan chan

    I believe that’s a lie. From my understanding she went to private school everyday from nip house while mom ran the streets drinking lean with strange men before noon. I don’t understand why ppl keep ignoring the fact she doesn’t have custody of the two older kids.

  • luVn_liFe…

    wonder how her older two kids are?

  • Trace da Ace

    This is getting messier and messier by the day....poor child...I know she just wants peace and for everybody to get along....folks dont realize the stress and hurt that situations like these can do to a child...the bickering back and forth...smdh.....I pray for this baby girl.....

  • Michelle Peele

    I honestly believe his sister was taking care of the little girl. Seems like Nipsey was out and about a lot. From what I have read, the sister lived with him and Lauren. Sounds like a live in baby sitter. And though it is being pointed up about Tanisha's improprieties, more often than not each time I saw Nipsey he had a blunt in his hand. It is what it is...

  • Shenanigans1

    That’s really all it is. This child could go with her and be living in squalor, under emotional distress and in an unhealthy environment and it would be cool bc that’s her mom. People really need to stop being blind to the fact that there aren’t sh*tty moms out here.

  • Gloria

    Nipsey definitely had a type

  • Shenanigans1

    Right! Like you must be into some bad ish if you don’t.

  • Michelle Peele

    How old is Tanisha? If she has teenage children, she was just a baby herself when she had them

  • luVn_liFe…

    Yes!! I seen a pic of Tanesha on lipstick alley with her first child.. I promise she looked like she could be 12!

  • Michelle Peele

    So how is a baby gonna be able to take care of a baby? This is just sad all the way around

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Nipsey's siblings don't want visitation. They want control over Nipsey's estate and the easiest way to get it is to become his daughter's legal guardians.
    I don't know how this will impact the son/brother or his legal rights to Nipsey's estate but stay tuned.
    Sadly the only people who will be financially better off are the lawyers.

  • Dowoop

    Kinda sad, she never really had a chance. When some women have kids so early they try to reclaim those years when they are older.

  • luVn_liFe…

    like I said its a vicious cycle

  • millz

    Where’s Lauren, his mom, and dad while all this mess is going on? If Nipsey wasn’t trying to get custody alive... she or anyone else shouldn’t be trying to take her from the mom... that poor baby can’t even grieve over her father with all that damn drama
    ?put your affairs in order you don’t know when your life will end!!! Update your insurance policy information and beneficiaries... have a will... something as simple as taking a hand written letter to a notary

  • Dowoop

    Since we don't know what the issue with the mother is we shouldn't assume it's housing. Giving someone a plan does not mean they will follow it.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Emani looks just like her father. Pretty lil girl she is.

  • Dowoop

    They are giving her visitation which I think is fair if she is unstable and unfit. I hope it's supervised too.

  • Slickone

    She do favor her some but she has those earrings in her face those aren't dimples.

  • Dowoop

    Pbly wondering why she not fighting for them like this. They older but not over 18.

  • Renee26

    Stay up Tanisha...it's not over. Handle that petty warrant and come back in July locked and loaded with your receipts that show stability

  • luVn_liFe…

    WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP ASKING ABOUT LAUREN and Emani!!
    Lauren HAS Nothing to do with this .. She is a GF

  • Dowoop

    What does any of them have to do with this?

  • chan chan

    ? say it again for the people in the back!!! I don’t automatically assume the mom is the best parent. I know plenty of men that have custody of their kids and the kids are better off with their dads than they ever will be with their mothers.

  • luVn_liFe…

    THIS IS NOT LAUREN LONDONS BUSINESS,LAUREN has NO say so/rights with Emani!!

  • Ni Ni

    Rumor has it that she lost custody of those children as well.

    Something not right in the water! Get it together and raise your kids!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Tanisha has beautiful children! She needs to take this time to get HERSELF together and when she goes back to court, be the NEW and IMPROVED Tanisha so she can SHOW the system that she is a Better person because she wants her daughter in her life!

  • Shenanigans1

    We’re going through that now. My husbands bm knows for a fact she can’t care for her kids in the way they need to be cared for and she won’t let us or her sons father and his wife have the kids. Not even for a few months out of the year. Her claim is that she doesn’t want to split her kids up. But she’s still struggling even with help from both dads. Smh

  • Mielle Downey

    This little girl is safe and God has a plan.If she did lose custody of her other Kids i believe it was due to her being young and dumb. hopefully both parties can work together to foster a healthy environment for the child and take her needs and preference into consideration. No child should be forced to choose.

  • Mz. Nisha

    Why are you mentioning Lauren, her name is no where in this article?

  • luVn_liFe…

    BEcause someone below did, as WEll as last night in the below post

  • millz

    That was my point... the whole front as the wife and stepmom ?

  • IAmLegend

    No this is what happens when you have a bad track record as a mother.

  • jazmine

    Those are piercings and I really pray she ain’t get that after he started dating Lauren cuz...creepy

    Cuz she was like 12 when she had em

    Be careful WHO you procreate with PLEASE
    It'll save you a lifetime of headaches and aggravation
    Save those around you the grief as well, be considerate .................

  • Kimocha

    Beautiful pics... Especially the one of her and Emani... Hopefully they will at the very least let her have visitation rights... After all, she IS the child's mother and deserves to be able to see her on a regular basis.

  • chan chan

    That’s her way of having some sort of control over the men she had kids with. With both kids gone with their dads what leverage does she have???? She also need the extra income she’s getting from the fathers as well. Unfortunately it will take a lot of money to lawyer up and seek safety for those kids.

  • 11pink123

    I hope his sister is sincere and did not take Emani from her mom for anything less than her safety, because God is watching.

    I don’t believe Nipsey would’ve wanted this. Either he cared for Tanesha and or his daughter too much to put them through this or he did not feel she was unfit enough to do this or Tanesha was easy enough to work with where he did not have to do this.

    This type of move ain’t gone sit well with God if it’s not sincere. If this was about money, it’s for the wrong reasons and ain’t worth the repercussions you gone have to face from God.

  • 11pink123

    You’re the only one that I see bringing her up.

  • Parent

    You know my heart goes out to Tanisha. You could tell she grew up rough. It's not her fault. I honestly believe she wants what is best for her children but the streets do not love anyone and she is a victim of that. I'm praying for her.

  • 11pink123

    Some kids have good enough dads where the mom is okay with letting the kids stay with the Dad. My mom let me live with my dad for 2 years while she got her stuff together financially. And when she did, she came back and got us.

    My dad ain’t want to give us back and my Grandmother tried to do what Samantha did but my Dad stopped her and asked us, where do we want to go, we said with our mom so he let us be.

  • Nathan Hastings

    She's a bird.

  • onelove

    she not going to get that girl...

    lol.. look at the comment I replyed to

  • 11pink123

    Tanesha the judge is giving you some time to get your stuff together. Get on it honey!

    Get off the substance abuse, drop the niggaz, Get the Bible, get a job, get a place to stay and come back with a fire attorney.

  • cherrypie

    Damn.....so she lost custody of all three of her kids. I was kinda rooting for the mother (without knowing all the details ) because I hate to see children taken away from parents but judges do not do this without sound reason. Cute little girl who has gone through so much. SMH!

  • JENNYJONES1

    WELL SAID. NIPSEY WAS A STREET DUDE BUT HE WAS GROWING & CHANGING AS A PERSON BUT TRYING TO SAVE & CARRY TOO ANY PEOPLE WITH HIM WHICH ULTIMATELY GOT HIM KILLED. IF YOU LOOK AT TANISHA'S IG PAGE SHE IS STILL ABOUT THE STREET LIFE AND I THINK SHE KEPT IT CUTE W/NIPSEY ABOUT EMANI AFTER SHE SAW HE WASN'T COMING BACK B/C HE WAS HER CLAIM TO FAME WHICH IS OBVIOUS BY HER IG NAME AND HER USING HIS LAST NAME EVENTHOUGH THEY WERE NEVER MARRIED. TANISHA SEEMS LOST..........JENNY JONES!!!

  • Luv R

    Why would u skip a hearing if you are fighting to get her back? I would be at that courthouse even on days when I'm not supposed to be there just to show them I am serious as a mug about my child. I don't understand women who lack passion for their children...

  • Luv R

    Get the Bible, read the Bible, meditate on those Scriptures and pray to the true God for understanding... All that first

  • Luv R

    ...what kind of bird? If she's a parrot she's a kept woman..lol.. They live long and are intelligent.

  • 11pink123

    ???Agree!

  • Luv R

    THIS: "Tanesha was easy enough to work with where he did not have to do this."

  • JENNYJONES1

    I THINK NIP WOULD WANT THIS. I THINK HE COULD THROW TANISHA SOME CHIPS MAKING SURE SHE WAS COOL, BE CORDIAL, LET EMANI SPEND TIME WITH HER, NOT TRIP ABOUT HER USING HIS LAST NAME OR HER IG PAGE NAME SO HE COULD MAKE THE BIG DECISION ABOUT THEIR DAUGHTER AND HAVE HER WITH HIM OR HIS FAMILY THE MAJORITY OF TIME W/O TOO MUCH PUSH BACK FROM TANISHA. HE KNEW SHE HAD ISSUES AND SHOULDN'T HAVE THEIR DAUGHTER FULL TIME BUT I ALSO THING HE KNEW IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR EMANI TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH HER MOM. THEY BOTH HAD ROUGH BACKGROUNDS BUT HE WAS GROWING, TRYING TO DO BETTER WHEN IT SEEMS TANISHA WAS CONTENT BEING FAMOUS FOR BEING HIS BABY MAMA AND NOT GROWING AS A PERSON, HANGING ON THE BLOCK..........JENNY JONES!!!

  • luVn_liFe…

    maybe she completly forget with all that has been going on around her..someone lack compassion for their babies because they were raised that way and learned it.

  • Logan Roberts

    Tanisha kinda favors Lauren.

  • Mielle Downey

    Amen to that!!

  • Mielle Downey

    The True God, the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob /Israel is always on the line when you need him, Amen

  • Wildcat34

    Agreed. The court obviously had sufficient evidence to rule in the families favor and did her a favor by sealing the records. I can't imagine the burden this young girl has to carry on her back with being her father's daughter. That alone would create already enough resentment in a household of unstable people.

  • JENNYJONES1

    EXACTLY AND THAT WAS THE PROBLEM SHE DIDN'T GROW AS A PERSON. SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE DRINKS AND SMOKES A LOT, PARTYING AND HANGING OUT ON THE BLOCK. UNFORTUNATELY THAT HAPPENS A LOT WITH COUPLES, ONE GROWS LIKE NIPSEY AND THE OTHER DOESN'T. THAT'S WHY WOMEN SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING GOING ON FOR THEMSELVES, CONSTANTLY GROWING SO A NUCCA AIN'T LEAVING YOU BEHIND OR ATLEAST HE LOOKS STUPID IF HE TRIES TO........JENNY JONES!!!

  • 11pink123

    Well I don’t believe he would’ve wanted this. It’s a reason he did not do it when he was here and they should’ve honored that.

    That girl wasn’t bothering them.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Nip had a type ??????

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I hope this baby has a healthy relationship with everyone. Her mother, her siblings, her extended family. Brokenness begets brokenness.

  • Vonda K

    Nipsey has a type. Beautiful Women with dimples and who favor his momma.
    I pray they can come together as a village and raise all the Children together.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Seems like she and Nip had a working arrangement. He’s gone now this happens ?

  • luVn_liFe…

    which is awful that this happened. Im Sure his fam knew what the arrangement is/was and Samantha pulls this stunt. why not just keep it like it was.. it Clearly was working

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I knooooooooow such a sweet lil face.

  • 11pink123

    That’s prob why he didn’t ever put her through this, maybe he did not see himself above her, knowing they came from the same place. It’s a reason he did not initiate this before.

  • C0rTnEy

    Her dimples are fake they are piercings like blac chyna’s

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Could they not seek custody because the daughter has been with them all along?

    Nip and his ex clearly had an arrangement. He is deceased, what happens to that arrangement?

  • luVn_liFe…

    i dont think they are.. I was looking at her pics on IG.. they look real

  • Lady_Elle

    Shared custody with Nipsey may have been...
    I will keep my daughter because if I don't... no telling what the child might experience!

    He may have thought he couldn't win custody... so just take what you can get!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Perhaps due to his passing the child would automatically go to the mom with the mom making major decisions. Something that may have not happened before Nip’s passing. Initially it sounded like his family just wanted to maintain the lifestyle her father accustomed her to. The mom having primary custody puts a damper on that. BUT it doesn’t mean revoke her parental rights. Maybe the family is doing this the right way, by going through the courts.

  • luVn_liFe…

    it stinks

  • morenYAHdelsur

    It wreaks! It’s just so unfortunate all the way around.

  • C0rTnEy

    In her older pictures the “dimples” aren’t there FAKE
    ?????

  • 11pink123

    When you say evolved what do you mean? Got a better outfit, a better car and a bigger house?

    Because all of them were the same. They all party, smoke, drink and stayed into Shyt, including Lauren.

    I love Nip, but stop trying to paint him so above her. He did not even think that way. He actually loved her. He talked more about her in detail than he did LL. He says me and my daughters mother, we did this, we wasn’t together, we came up with a name, we did this, we did that. When they ask him about Lauren that nigga change the whole subject and start talking about his grandma.

  • Marlika

    I would like to know how the gutter rat sister is going to take care of his daughter when she was living with Nipsey when her and her child were living with him and being taking care of financially by him.?? ???

    I hope that’s a question that has come up or will. How do you plan on supporting this child financially?? I don’t believe she help raised anyone. Just because you’re living with someone doesn’t mean you help raised their child. The sister is living with her brother in his house being taking care of financially. So one could say she’s unfit to take care of her own child.?

    This is a money move to keep the gravy train going from both of his siblings.

    This also seems like a move from the judge to give the mother time to clear up that warrant and get her *ish together by the next court date.

    I hope the judge asked Emani what she wants and let her decide.

  • AllIN19

    Yes, why it's so important for her to get Emani, now when she hasn't had her, or the other kids. How you want your child now but haven't seen her in months. I have no problem with her having her mother in her life, however all this about them taking her, she wasn't with her in the 1st place. And as you said apparently hasn't had custody of her other two. Yes Nip smoked and obviously she drinks one don't out weigh the other. But up rooting her abruptly vs gradually makes no sense. And no I'm not saying she shouldn't be with her mother but where she was b4 his death, Him and the sister then leave her there. Now the sister should have gone about it a different way and yes she needs visitations and to decide to get herself together $ or no $ that's her child. She has 3 not 1 be stable and fit for all not just the 1 with $.

  • Seldomseen

    When an official parenting plan is put in place, it is frequently monitored by courts and mental health professionals.

  • Soon2BWife

    Well her IG page really says it all.

  • Ghost

    Well Nipsey definitely had a “type” Lauren and Tanisha can pass for sisters!

    I’m just hoping Tanisha is getting it all in order for the July court date..I’m not for taking children away from their biological parents until abuse or death is involved! Also I hope there is some visitation with Tanisha during May, June and July! She is still the mother and needs a relationship with her daughter no matter what! Sighs....

  • datjerk

    He definitely had a type

  • Dowoop

    Again - that does not mean she will follow it.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If there is nothing in writing it never happened.

  • Dowoop

    Because without legal guardianship she has no say in anything concerning the child whether the mother is fit or not. Kid gets in an accident she has no say in what they do.

  • 11pink123

    Then if his songs have any truth to it like the rest of them do.

    When with LL:

    “I’m married to this game, that’s who I made my wife, she said I’ll die alone, I told that “bytch” she prolly right”

    “First, I pick up my “bitch”, and we shut down the mall
    Had to pick up the tip, she tried to pay for it all”

    Then:

    “I dedicate this to my last ho
    Swear I got cash and started actin’ like a asshole
    “Catch up, keep up”, Cutlass with the beat up
    I be buyin’ pounds, so naw we can’t peace up
    Rollie with the crown, bet you wanna fuck the king, huh?”

    Now who you think he talking to?

    As you can see he refers to LL as a bytch that he pimpimg but refers to his baby mama as a hoe that needs to catch up and keep up.

    Men are not that complicated if you pay attention. All them lyrics matched his exact circumstances at the time he made those songs.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Precisely. They’re trying to get something in writing now.

  • 11pink123

    So does the sisters. She ain’t that much more fit to be honest, if you basing it on IG.

  • NewNew

    I'm sure the judge would not have granted her temporary custody if she didn't have the means to provide for the child.

  • 11pink123

    She had dimples before the piercing.

  • 11pink123

    You mean Lauren favors Tanisha. Lauren was the replacement.

  • 11pink123

    I’ve looked at all the comments on here. You the only one that keep bringing her up like she responsible.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Yes all that lean drinking and carrying on like she's a teenager....thats the first place any private investigator would look at if they are hired by Samantha...Tanisha (Chyna Hussle) is an addict...

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    No she didn't lol...she got the piercings which look like dimples...LSA found a pic of her when she was a kid and there were no dimples in sight...

  • YellowSauce

    This was a general statement about making conscious decisions before procreation and the annoyance it can be if not with the right person ... But YES Nipsey was a prize and you seem to be on SM today to spread your poisonous misery on others but it won't work over here actually free you need to set yourSELF free so YOU can be a prize to someone because right now you're straight negative energy

  • PrettyNetty28

    That's what I was thinking too.

  • Harley

    Her son is 21 and on her IG page asking why she didn’t try and fight for him... y’all still trying to defend this woman? Knowing she lost custody of all 3 kids?? Yet the same ones hollering when these trifling women hook up with men that end up abusing and killing their kids. The judge took Emani and the other kids out her mom’s house for a reason!!

  • Joy King

    Not understanding why some of you are still blaming Nipsey’s family as if they are only interested in money. That’s their blood. God forbid if something happened to my sister, I would take custody of my niece tomorrow if I felt her father was unfit. After reading about Tanisha’s 2017 DUI, that was a red flag for me. It’s called a pattern of behavior. Unless you’re a teenager, because they’re still very immature, MOST grown people aren’t getting DUI’s unless they are a borderline alcoholic or there is an underlying drug problem.

    Even a halfway decent Judge in Family Court is going to do what’s in the best interest of the child. And the preference is typically the biological Mother. Clearly there are some serious issues going on with this woman. The courts are going to use this time to monitor her and see if she can provide a stable environment for her minor child. Hopefully Tanisha will use this opportunity to get her mind right and her life together. If not, she’ll mess around and only get supervised visitations.

    Also it takes more than a similar skin complexion and some dimples for women to look alike.? Tanisha and Lauren look nothing alike.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    I don't know this lady's story but..It is kind of strange to me that she doesn't have custody of any of her kids...I also think it's kind of telling that a judge even awarded the sister custody. From my understanding courts dont just remove kids from their parents unless they're unfit. Idk about this one....

  • Harley

    THANK YOU! Someone on here has some sense!

  • Well$$Well$$?

    I agree. Courts don't just award custody to family members without a reason. I don't like to see any mother lose their child but there's a reason(one we're not privy to) that her aunt was awarded custody...

  • luVn_liFe…

    You dont see the comment that I replied to by millz asking where is Lauren??? then clearly you are focused on me mentioning Lauren only..follow the thread on up..

  • luVn_liFe…

    and Im CLEARLY Saying SHE ISNT Responsible.. what part arent you comprehending???

  • Applebootay

    and we'll never know the reasons why the judge granted custody to the sister because the documents are sealed, obviously it was enough bullsh$t because courts always try to keep children with the birth parent. ?Kudos to the sister fighting for her niece ??????

  • Soon2BWife

    Ok, that is what it sounds like from other font's comments as well. I pray for this little girl. I remember being 10 years old and I can't imagine what she is going through. The uncertainty and grief she must be feeling! I'm sure Lauren won't even try to put her hat in the ring.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    I wonder did she get the fake dimples after Nip started dating Lauren? ?

  • Tlowe89

    I served on a Juvenile custody board in my early 20s, and the main things we wanted to see was, steady housing, jobs, clean of drugs/alcohol, and if you didn’t have one of those things then unfortunately the kid remains with the state or with whomever the guardian is that has those things

    I don’t agree with ppl taking children from their PARENTS mother or father but if it is in the child’s best interest then so be it. I feel bad for all involved but when I looked on her page I said whew Chile the ghetto and someone commented how her page was ghetto just because she posts food but there was more than that on there I try to tell ppl that now a days YOU WILL BE JUDGED BASED ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA not only in coirt but when law enforcement is investing something or when they pick and choose whose page to monitor law enforcement being fbi cia and local police, perspective employers as well ppl have lost it all just by one social media post. If you didn’t post your business on social media the guess what nobody would really know what you got going on unless they know you personally. One thing that stood out to me in one of her posts was she had a pic of Xanax and said I got them bars. Often times that is used to let perspective drug seekers know you have Xanax and it’s for sell. Ijs maybe she can get her life on track and work to get her child back. But I’m sure that amount other things is what made her lose the case.

    thats why I do NOT have FB,ig,sc,wusapp,etc. the most online I do is here on SR

    It's like taking a puppy from its parents. It happens. However, I'm not a fan of children being taken from their parents. If her mom is unable to provide a healthy, and stable environment for her, then she should be with someone who can. I'm not saying that it's Nipsey's family either because apparently her father was a known gang affiliate. Am I missing something? I wouldn't want to keep my baby from his/her father, but I have to think of my child's safety and well being. I wouldn't want to be with a man associated with any lifestyle that could bring harm to my home or my family. Before we met, my husband hung around certain people, when I walked through the door, things changed.

  • Bree

    I actually shut down all of my social media accounts last month. I will never have one again. Not just because of the information that is put out there, but it has become very dangerous and it's a mockery.

  • Bree

    I believe if her mother isn't bringing harm to her and can provide a stable environment for her, she should go home. My brother has a son and if something happens to him, I would only fight for custody if his mother was unfit or fight for visitation if we couldn't see him. It's obvious this family is out for blood if they decided to do this without the mother's consent first. I also have a sister, if something happens to her, I'd fight for custody because of the guy she's with, he doesn't take take care of the ones he has now. I don't believe in removing kids from their home, unless it is absolutely necessary.

  • luVn_liFe…

    i sense that Tanisha isnt stable

  • Zeta Aggie

    The courts rarely take a child from the bio mom. In Texas they can be on drugs and in jail with no home or job and they still won’t do it. Mom isn’t the best option. I never did think this was about money.

  • Bree

    If she is unstable, then she needs to get it together if she wants her kid.

  • Shenanigans1

    Right only he and his family knew the true issues this woman had as to why he felt the need to take her in the first place. Men don’t do that unless they can see something truly wrong.

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    I hope everyone wan6s what's best for her. Poor baby.

  • free

    wholeheartedly agree! i just hate to see people talk shit about her when they both came from the same place. maybe he had a stronger family or better people around him than she did. i really respect him for respecting her.

  • Shenanigans1

    Whew chillay...say it again. My child can’t even get sick without me having the blues.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    These judges dont give a fawk about black kids they dont care who gets the child and they care even less what becomes of said child. This dirty foot hood booger tatted up mess he/she gangbanging heaux is a better parent than the mama how? If when nipsey was alive sge had share custody, why does she lose it now? Lauren you better realize that this would be your behind if you werent famous. All this for money. Shame

  • Eileen

    If I were a man I would guard my sperm like its liquid gold from Fort Knox. I would not impregnate these random woman much less want to impregnate a women with multiple kids from different men.

  • currvalicious

    Wondering if Emani's wishes were taken into consideration when this decision was made. I know she's a minor, however she's of age to provide input. Also, if she in fact did have a say; I hope she wasn't pressured by her father's family to choose them over being w/her Mother.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    You can tell she was loose and wild.

  • dontgetblocked

    That family is evil. She'll win in the end but all this drama!

  • dontgetblocked

    Interesting. Everyone is putting down the mother but the father was the gang member. He was ghetto. He was killed by another gangster. Funny! So harsh on the woman but give the man a pass.

  • MJ

    ? If she gave half a shit about her daughter at all she would have shown up for that court date. What kind of idiot pulls a stunt like that knowing their decision making is being questioned and observed by the family courts? She just made it easy.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    ?. Because the tatted up rah rah hoodbooger is SO much better right? Because nipsey himself was a saint right? If yall dont stop this fake concern. Bye

  • MJ

    How many DUI's did Nipsey have? And why do you think the courts saw fit to give him joint custody when he was alive? Think dummy.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Man suspected of killing rapper Nipsey Hussle indicted on murder charges.

    Eric R. Holder Jr. was indicted by a grand jury for one count of murder, two counts each of attempted murder and assault with a firearm and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. The indictment, which was unsealed Tuesday, also includes allegations that Holder used a handgun and caused "great bodily injury and death."

    Holder pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to return for a pretrial hearing on June 18

    All of this!!! It started 2 kids ago. Not just with Emani. And Emani doesn't need to be accessible to everyone in her mother's life because of her dad and the $ they assume comes with her. We just lost that last baby due to a boyfriend babysitting. Emani was already with them, no one took her how you don't see your child for months and you in the same city and state. But now it's a problem.

  • Harley

    People change and that was what he was in the process of doing. This is why his city and the world respected him because he was a business man, a leader in the community, a real estate investor, and a kind soul. Funny how you want to bring up his past. Who were you 10 + years ago? Is that who you will be remembered for or for the moves you made as a ADULT?

  • Harley

    How are they evil because they don’t want a child to go back to a home deemed unfit for 3 kids already?

  • Harley

    Oh the person he was in the past? Your judging who he was before the fame, business investments, Community development and real estate investments ??? Typical

  • chan chan

    He changed and was helping people and building a community. She can change and do the same thing and maybe she will get all of her kids back.

  • 11pink123

    he really did. I respect that about him too. Because if they were able to get custody, he could’ve easily gotten it, but he choose not to do her like that for whatever reason.

  • chan chan

    I didn’t want to say it but I’m going to follow my instincts on this. I will not be surprised if information come out Emani was sexually abused by someone in her mother’s care. Way before hussle died Emani is smiling but she doesn’t look happy when she’s with her mom. I will not ignore the fact she doesn’t have custody of her older children. This woman has 3 baby daddies and all of them took the kids away from her ?

    You are spot on. I mean it's like fucking elementary,,, but people still want to remain stupid. They're called red flags for a reason.

  • freelancepimp .

    He was also a responsible earner and provider. Bottom line the baby was probably a nice home and was clothed and fed well.

    I'm gone thumb my own shit up!

    Hey Harley 'don't get blocked' talking logic!
