Likewise, Nipsey’s ex-girlfriend also agreed to the guardianship of her child to Nipsey’s family stating that she has some financial issues. Similarly, the documents also state that each member would act in her daughter’s best interest.
However, she now wishes to revoke the guardianship claiming that the late rapper’s family isn’t letting the mother and daughter see each other. According to her, they are using their financial power to control Emani’s desires and financial support and also limiting Tanisha’s visitation rights.
She is currently battling the case in the Los Angeles County Court where her court filing states,
I have continued to be an active part of Emani’s life. She spends the night with me often, I take her to school, and I continue to do the things a parent would do with their child. I am very unhappy that the guardians will not take my calls. They have blocked me on their cell phones. I have to go through a third party or Emani to communicate with the guardians.”
We don’t know whether this accusation is true, but we hope Tanisha and Nipsey’s family will come to a better term in which both parties will remain happy.
