Nipsey Hussle’s ex, Tanisha Foster, wants to regain custody of their daughter, Emani Asghedom.
According to new legal documents obtained by The Blast, Tanisha is objecting to the guardianship currently in place for the 13-year-old girl.
In the filing, Foster claims that she allowed Nipsey’s family to have guardianship of her daughter in hopes that they would ‘act in the best interest of Emani.”
“Tanisha’s motivation for doing so was in recognition of her own financial limitations; her desire to maintain the standard of living and family contact the minor had experienced with the paternal family prior to her father’s death; and upon the verbal assurances that each of them would act in the best interests of Emani,” the document states.
Tanisha also alleges that shortly after entering into the agreement with Nipsey’s family, they started “using their financial position and influence to disregard their priorities by controlling the desires of Emani and Tanisha by withholding financial assistance and reducing visitation.”
In addition, Foster says that Nipsey’s family “have frequently demonstrated their disdain for Emani’s mother in favor of Lauren London who is the mother of the other two minors and such attitude may impact the ability for (the family) to carry out their fiduciary duties as guardian of the minor’s estate.”
For the reasons stated, Tanisha Foster is asking to regain full custody of her daughter. She continues, “There are no circumstances or events in my life that would disqualify me for regaining my exclusive role as Emani’s parent. There is no longer any need for guardianship. Emani routinely asks me when are she and I going to be able to live together. She longs to be with me as her mother. I am begging the court to terminate the existing guardianship.”
The family is due in court on March 25, 2022.
