Nipsey Hussle’s Longtime Girlfriend Breaks Silence on Rapper’s Death: 'I’m Lost without You'
Nipsey Hussle’s longtime girlfriend, actress Lauren London, is speaking out for the first time after the rapper’s tragic killing and her admission is painful and heartbreaking at the same time.
London, 34, who shared a two-year-old son, Kross, with Hussle, admitted she was lost without her man in an emotional Instagram post some hours ago.
Alongside several pictures of herself and their family with the late “Victory Lap” rapper, London wrote:
“I am completely lost
I’ve lost my best friend
I’m lost without you
We are lost without you babe
I have no words.”
A FAIRYTALE GONE SOUR
London and Hussle, along with the rapper’s seven-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, Emani, and the actress’s son with ex-boyfriend, Lil Wayne, formed a tight-knit family since they began dating in 2013.
Only last month, the lovebirds dazzled in a GQ feature that chronicled their fairytale relationship, and both had supportive words for each other. While Hussle praised London for sacrificing her career for the sake of their little family, the “Games People Play” actress raved over Hussle’s craft.
“He's gotten more of a platform to be really clear about his message, because before he was just making rap gang-bang music,” she said to the magazine. “But I think he has a purpose in all the raps, and that's coming to light.”
London even shared a photo from their shoot – one where she and Hussle posed majestically with a white horse – and predicted that their “grandchildren will frame” the pic.
STEPS TO JUSTICE
Hussle died on Sunday after being shot multiple times outside his LA clothing store “The Marathon.” After surveillance footage of the incident surfaced, the Los Angeles Police Department identified the suspected killer as 29-year-old Eric Holder and asked for the public’s help in locating him.
Hours later, on Tuesday, the police captured Holder in Bellflower, a southeast LA city. The authorities put out a tweet to that effect, announcing that “the suspected killer of Nipsey Hussle has been arrested and is in police custody.”

AN ICON IS LOST
Hussle’s death sent shock waves throughout the music industry and Hollywood, with many celebrities, including T.I. and Beyoncé, expressing their shock and grief at the gruesome killing of a man who was committed to improving his community.
Before his death, Hussle whose birth name was Ermias Joseph Asghedom had planned to meet with the Los Angeles Police Department on Tuesday for a discussion on how to end gang violence. According to ABC News, the meeting still held in Hussle’s absence, something the late rapper would most likely have wanted.
Hussle, who earned a Grammy nomination earlier this year for his debut album, “Victory Lap,” was 33.
Rest In Peace, Nipsey Hussle.
