Heartbreaking news for Nipsey Hussle's family. Earlier this week, it was reported that Nipsey's sister secretly filed for guardianship of Nipsey's daughter Emani. Unfortunately, today it's being reported she was denied by the judge due to not giving proper notice to Emani's mother.
The Blast reports:
The ruling stated, “No urgency demonstrated for granting this relief prior to hearing on May 14th.”
The judge also added that Emani’s mother, Tanisha, must be given notice of the hearing.
As The Blast first reported,Smith filed a request for guardianship earlier this week, saying she has “always been a presence in Emani’s life and along with the rest of Emani’s paternal family has assisted in her care.”
Smith wants to put a guardianship in place to ensure that she can make legal custody decisions regarding Emani and “to ensure that she can continue to live with family members with whom she has always had close ties.”
In her filing for custody, Smith said she did not want to inform Tanisha of her request. We’re told Nipsey’s familybelieves Tanisha is unable to providea stable environment for the girl.
If Samantha's allegations are true, I am sure she will no give up fighting for guardianship. Hopefully the family can work this out amicably.
