Samantha Smith is asking a judge for guardianship of Nip’s 10 year-old daughter.
Prior to Nipsey’s passing late last month Emani Asghedom was being cared for by her father. The rapper’s sister stated in the legal documents she filed in L.A. County Superior Court that she believes Emani’s mother is unable to properly care for her.
Samantha has reportedly assisted in caring for Nipsey’s daughter throughout her life and hopes to “ensure the continued stability for Emani and ensure that she will be able to maintain her current and ongoing relationship” with the family of the late rapper.
Nipsey also has a 2-year-old son Kross, that he share with Lauren London. Kross is being cared for by his mother. The judge has yet to make a decision in the guardianship petition. A few days after his passing Samantha shared a beautiful tribute to her brother on Instagram, read it below:
