Lauren London says her love for Nipsey Hussle is 'forever' as she posts sweet tribute for late rapper
Ever since his tragic death, the late rapper's longtime girlfriend has shared a number of emotional tributes for her lover
Nipsey Hussle may be gone, but the rapper is surely not forgotten. His girlfriend, actress Lauren London, once again paid a sweet tribute to the late musician, via an emotional Instagram post on Thursday. “Forever,” she captioned the black and white photo of the couple taken from behind, showing their arms wrapped around one another.
Ever since his tragic death, the late rapper's longtime girlfriend has shared a number of emotional tributes for her lover, who was killed on March 31 after being shot outside of his Hyde Park, California, clothing store. On the joyful occasion of Easter, London had posted another black and white photo as a tribute to Hussle, who was 33 at the time of his death.
“Missing you,” the 34-year-old actress captioned the image. The photo, which appeared to be from a red carpet Interview, saw the duo casting loving looks towards each other while standing by each other’s side. London, while speaking at Hussle’s funeral on April 11, tearfully remembered “the love of my life,” in front of a crowd of 21,000 who had gathered to pay their respects.
The model was emotional but stood strong onstage as she told the audience: "I've never felt this type of pain before." She called Hussle "majestic" and "brilliant" and said she had learned so much from his presence. She added though she was hurting, she was really sad for their son Kross, whom she feared wouldn't remember his dad: "My pain is from a two-year-old that probably won’t remember how much his dad loved him."
She tearfully continued, “This is something that I don’t really understand but I know Ermias always used to say that you can’t possess people; that you experience them. I’m so honored and blessed to experience such a man.” London was joined at the memorial by her son with Lil Wayne, Cameron Carter, as well as Hussle’s daughter Emani Asghedom.
Carter, during the service, said days after Hussle died, he had a dream he saw the rapper. "I realized Ermias told me what heaven was like. He told me it was paradise," he said. Carter then told the audience that Hussle would look at him through the window at times and say "respect." He further asked the crowd to say "respect" in unison, and they complied.
After the service, London went on to flaunt a new tattoo on her forearm, honoring her slain lover. The inking featured an image of Hussle’s face with a crown and racing flag, along with the saying “God Will Rise” underneath, which was also the phrase that was tattooed on Hussle next to his right eye.
“Real Love Never Dies,” she captioned the photo. “When you see me, you will always see him #LoveYouHussle #TMC.”
Hussle was allegedly killed by 29-year-old Eric Holder, who has been charged with murder and two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon, according to the Los Angeles County’s District Attorney’s Office. On April 4, Holder entered a plea of not guilty in court, but could face a maximum sentence of life in state prison if convicted.
