Back in March 2019, Lauren London‘s world was damaged tremendously after the loss of her longtime boyfriend and star rapper, Nipsey Hussle. The Los Angeles artist was shot and killed in his hometown in front of his The Marathon Clothing store. Many are still in disbelief that Nipsey isn’t here anymore due to how great he was as an artist along with the positive impact that he made in his local community. Now, London is speaking about her return to acting later that year after Nipsey’s passing.
Michael B. Jordan Played A Role In London’s Return To Acting In Late 2019
In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, London recently opened up about how she started to act again late in 2019 while dealing with her grieving process in losing Nipsey. She began working on the “Without Remorse” film as it also starred Michael B. Jordan, Guy Pearce, Jodie Turner-Smith, and Jamie Bell. It turns out that MBJ was the one who reached out to London and even asked her to check out the script for this film. London was soon very intrigued by the story of Without Remorse as well as the role she would be playing.
London Related To Her Character In ‘Without Remorse’
“There was a lot going on in my world and there were other priorities. I saw throughout the film she comes to him. Her love for him is still guiding him and I felt so connected to that just in my own personal experience that I felt like I could contribute here.”
London Says She Wants To Be Part Of Projects Where She Can Fully Contribute
London also added that just like in this film, she wants to be part of other films that she could fully contribute in. Many felt that she may not have been able to do this due to her grieving process of Nipsey. She also emphasized going hard for her children.
“Moving forward in my life, I kind of don’t want to do anything that I can’t really truthfully contribute and I felt like I could truthfully contribute to this project. We can’t stop, you know? We do have a purpose, all of us, and it’s important for my sons to see me moving forward with grief, not just curling up in a ball because I curled up in a ball for a long time.”
Lauren Was The Subject Of Pregnancy Rumors Two Months Ago
On February 10, social media was buzzing and this was due to a report by the Los Angeles Sentinel stating how London was reportedly pregnant. This caught many online by surprise as they wondered who London began to quietly date and add another child with. She shut all of the speculation down as she took to Twitter and denied any reports of her being pregnant.
“Woke up to some straight bulls*it. Rumors! Lies! On a woman trying her best to heal?! Please stop. I’m NOT pregnant.”
