Lauren London shares a powerful message about life!
The actress and model recently opened up about surviving life’s obstacles and trials nearly three years after her boyfriend and iconic rapper Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot.
During an appearance on Jay Shetty’s “On Purpose” podcast, the 37-year-old entertainer got candid about her struggles and dropped a touching message for fans.
Lauren London: “It’s Actually Very Powerful To Surrender”
On Tuesday, March 1, London shared a clip from her emotional interview with Shetty on Instagram and labeled the video, “Watch this when things don’t go as planned.”
Like the powerful title, the Los Angeles heartthrob discussed the importance of letting life take its course rather than fighting against the tides of fate. The actress said:
“When you have this plan for your life, as you should, if or when that gets derailed, and you have plan B now to go off that you didn’t plan on, it is the ultimate test of surrender.”
“The Game” star continued that yielding to destiny took an incredible amount of courage as most people believed that they had control of the situation when they did not. In her words:
“It’s actually very powerful to surrender — we think that it’s a weakness, but it’s so much power in letting go and flowing with the river because life is going to do what it’s going to do.”
London also reminded fans that everyone would eventually get “chin-checked by life one way or another” and concluded her message with the noteworthy words that read:
“I might as well focus on my enlightenment and roll with the river and not fight with the rocks.”
In addition to sharing a valuable point with the world, “Madea’s Big Happy Family” actress also showed her appreciation to the podcast host in the post’s caption by writing:
“Beyond Honored and Super Grateful to join my dear friend @jayshetty on his podcast, On Purpose. My intention is sharing is always to help…in anyway I can. Podcast available on Apple, Spotify, and Soundcloud.”

Naturally, this touching post was highly appreciated by fans and celebrities, who flooded the comment section with their undying love for the entertainer.
A-list stars such as Shetty, Khadijah McCray, Sheree Zampino, India Love, Jonah Hill, Aadil Abedi, Parker Posey, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and more sang London’s praises for this wholesome interview.
As shared by PEOPLE, the “ATL” star and Hussle dated for five years before the rapper met his untimely demise in 2019.
During their relationship, the pair welcomed son Kross Ermias in 2016, who marked the TV personality’s second child as she shared son Kameron Samuel Ari with ex-fiancé Lil Wayne.
Although he was gone, the “Games People Play” actress continued to celebrate the Hip-hop star’s memory. Last August, on what would have been the “Double Up” musician’s 36th birthday, the TV personality gave him a special tribute.
The mother-of-two uploaded a shirtless picture of the tattooed artist, in which the “Victory Lap” singer was captured with a radiant smile. This heartwarming mage was partly captioned:
“Happy Birthday My King! I Love You Today and Forever. Missing you is just apart of my DNA, and I wear it with honor. Kross reminded me that you are ’36’ like me.”

As reported by The Blast, March 2019 was a gruesome month for London as she lost Hussle, the love of her life, who was brutally murdered in front of his Los Angeles clothing store, The Marathon.
Although the world grieved over losing a talented rapper and community icon, no one was more upset than his loved ones, especially his girlfriend.
Last year, the 37-year-old entertainer opened up about returning to acting in late 2019 while being an emotional wreck over the “Racks In the Middle” artist’s death.
At the time, Michael B. Jordan reached out to London with the script for the movie, “Without Remorse,” which turned out to be the saving grace the actress needed.
The TV personality stated that she joined the film because of the connection she had with her character Pam Kelly due to what was happening in her world.
