Nipsey Hussle's partner Lauren London awarded guardianship of their 3-year-old son Kross

Lauren London, the partner of late American rapper, Nipsey Hussle, has been granted guardianship of their 3-year-old son, Kross, who is set to inherit $1 million from his late father.

According to TMZ, London was granted guardianship over the estate of Kross Ermias Asghedom, her only child with the rapper after she filed for guardianship back in July.

The 34-year-old actress reportedly told the court she will be in charge of raising the child and wanted to ensure that his seven-figure inheritance was handled properly.

The new guardianship role for London, who was not married to Nipsey, will see her participate in legal matters involving Nipsey's estate, which is administered by his brother Blacc Sam.

Kross is expected to inherit half of Nipsey's estate, while Nipsey's eldest child and only daughter, Emani, with his ex- Tanisha Foster, is expected to receive the other half. There's a reported $2M that the two children of the late rapper will receive when they are older.

Nipsey Hussle was shot dead back in March outside of his clothing store, Marathon Clothing Company. His alleged killer Eric Holder is currently awaiting trial, as he was charged with murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm.
