Nipsey Hussle’s family is making their case for why his 10-year-old daughter should remain in their custody … saying her biological mother needs to get her life in order.
According to TMZ … Nipsey’s family wants custody of Emani Asghedom, primarily because Tanisha Foster has a rap sheet that on its face makes her unfit to care for her child until she turns things around.
As was reported … Tanisha Foster had a warrant out for her arrest relating to a DUI, she’s violated probation multiple times in the past year, and she has other arrests dating back to 2006.
Emani’s been living with Nipsey’s sister, Samantha, a well-established businesswoman, since his death … and his family is currently locked in a bitter custody battle with Tanisha.
Nipsey’s family isn’t trying to drive a wedge between Emani and her mother … and they have even offered to help Tanisha enroll in substance abuse programs — so far, to no avail. The family is trying to arrange for visitation between Emani and Tanisha.
So far, the judge has been siding with Nipsey’s family … and Tanisha broke down last week in court when she spotted Emani, saying she hadn’t seen her in months. The next court date isn’t until July.
Also, Nipsey died without a will, and his 2 children — Emani and Kross — will share equally in the $2 million estate. Tanisha believes when Emani gets the $1 million, she can use some of it for living expenses and provide a stable, safe environment for her child. Nipsey’s family doesn’t buy it.
