Nipsey Hussle’s sister Samantha Smith has filed for legal guardianship of one of his daughter, 10-year-old Emani Asghedom.
Samantha believes the child’s mother, Tanisha Foster is unable to care for the Emani.
We’re told Nipsey cared for Emani before his death March 31 after being gunned down at his L.A. clothing store.
It’s unclear why Tanisha has not tried to declare custody, or if she is aware that Nipsey’s sister is making a move for the young girl.
Samantha wants to put a guardianship in place to ensure that she can make legal custody decisions regarding Emani and “to ensure that she can continue to live with family members with whom she has always had close ties.”
According to the guardianship filing, Emani’s current address was omitted due to the “ongoing criminal investigation of father’s homicide.”
Nipsey’s father, Dawit Asghedom, also signed off on the documents, giving his blessing for Samantha to be the guardian.
Nipsey also has a child, 2-year-old Kross, with actress Lauren London.
The judge has yet to rule on the guardianship petition.
