Dept. Of Child & Family Services Now Called Into Battle Over Nipsey Hussle’s Daughter
As the family of rapper, Nipsey Hussle, tries to pick up the pieces in the wake of his heartbreaking murder, they now have a new issue to face, involving the custody battle of his 10 year old daughter, Emani. As the unknown fate of her custody lingers, the Department of Children and Family Services has now intervened.
Prior to Nipsey’s passing, he had primary custody of his daughter, whom he shares with his ex-girlfriend, Tanisha a.k.a. Chyna Hussle. It’s unclear why Tanisha (pictured below) did not share joint custody of Emani, but apparently, the adorable little girl enjoyed a stable life under the care of her late father.
Following his death, Nipsey’s sister and his Mother have requested to help raise Emani, in attempts to maintain the familiarity of the life she was accustomed to. However, Emani’s mother, Tanisha, has now expressed interest in taking part in raising her daughter as well.
As a result of the fight over Emani, the DCFS will be attending Tuesday’s (May 14th) custody hearing to make the final decision. Here’s is what else was reported:
Via The Blast: According to court records obtained by The Blast, DCFS officials in Los Angeles will be involved in Tuesday’s court hearing that will decide the emergency placement of Nipsey’s daughter, Emani.
Officials are going to want to discuss the most beneficial placement for Emani, so that the girl can be around people she’s familiar with, and grow up in a stimulating environment.
Nipsey did not have a will when he died, so unfortunately the door was left open for his family members to jockey for position as they try and pick up the pieces that were left behind.
It’s unclear if Emani’s mother, Tanisha, will aggressively take on the late hip-hop star’s entire family for full custody of the girl, but after Tuesday’s hearing we should have a better idea.
Hopefully Emani ends up in whichever home is best for her mentally, psychologically, and emotionally, as she continues to cope with the grief of losing her Dad. Best wishes and continued condolences to the entire family.
