Nipsey Hussle’s sister, Samantha Smith, was denied her request to get an emergency order granting her temporary guardianship over the late rapper’s daughter Emani Asghedom.
The Blast obtained court documents that state a judge has denied Smith’s request to be appointed as Emani’s temporary guardian. The ruling stated, “No urgency demonstrated for granting this relief prior to hearing on May 14th.” ⠀⠀⠀
In addition, the judge added Emani’s mother, Tanisha, must be given notice of the hearing. This stems from Smith filing a request for Emani’s guardianship earlier this week, saying she has “always been a presence in Emani’s life and along with the rest of Emani’s paternal family has assisted in her care.”
Smith also states that she wanted to take legal custody of Emani “to ensure that she can continue to live with family members with whom she has always had close ties.”
