According to TMZ, Foster appeared at the Los Angeles Superior Court to face Hussle's family during a scheduled hearing to begin the legal process over who would obtain guardianship over Hussle's 10-year-old daughter, Emani Asghedom. Not only is Foster now asking for full custody, but also child support benefits from the late rapper's estate. The judge overseeing the case did not see the need for Emani's immediate removal from Tanisha's custody and ordered that the child's mother be notified of the upcoming hearing. The courtroom was cleared for 20 minutes while Tanisha and Emani spent some time together, and the hearing was pushed until Friday when a final decision is to be made on custody and finances.
Prior to his death, Foster and Nipsey Hussle had a shared custody agreement.
Nipsey's sister, Samantha Smith, and his brother, Blacc Sam, were also in court, as Smith has filed documents to become Emani's guardian, as she believes it would be in Emani's best interest if she were in her care. According to The Blast, Foster showed up to court on Tuesday (May 14), and she does not want to continue to share custody of her daughter. Smith's petition was backed by her brother Samiel Asghedom and Hussle's father, Dawit Asghedom.
Rapper Nipsey Hussle who was as noted for his business acumen as he was for his music, apparently died in debt to a music company, which now wants his estate to cough up the money they claim he owed them. Due to Tuesday's events, the hearing won't take place until May 17.
While the judge has yet to make a decision or ruling in the administrator request, Hussle's sister, Samantha Smith, was denied emergency guardianship of his daughter Emani, 10.
Paramount Recording Group is alleging that Hussle, 33, who was murdered March 31 in front of his South Los Angeles clothing store, owed the music company $32,000 before his death and are now seeking back pay.
