It was an emotional day in court on Monday for Tanisha Foster, the mother of Nipsey Hussle‘s 10-year-old daughter Emani Asghedom. There has been an ongoing custody case over Emani between Nipsey’s sister Samantha Smith and Foster, and on Monday a judge ordered that the child should remain in the custody of her aunt.
Smith previously stated in court documents that she wants “to ensure the continued stability for Emani and ensure that she will be able to maintain her current and ongoing relationship.” Foster accused Smith of basically kidnapping Emani, saying that she “unlawfully took the minor and as of this date, despite objectors demand, refused to return the minor to Objector.”
There is another court date set for July and Larry Lewellyn, Foster’s lawyer, told TMZ he’s working with Nipsey’s family on a visitation schedule. According to the publication, Foster began crying in front of a judge after sharing that she hadn’t seen her child in months. The judge allowed the mother and daughter 20 minutes together.
Following Monday’s ruling, a cameraman caught Foster leaving the courthouse. “I’m pissed off,” she tells the paparazzo while keeping her cool and repeatedly saying “God bless” to him. He hounds her for a response before letting her be on her way.
