Lauren London is understandably thinking about Nipsey Hussle today, the first Father’s Day since his untimely death earlier this year.
The actress shared a sweet photo of herself with Nipsey and their son, 2-year-old Kross. She captioned the pic by writing, “One of the reasons I fell in Love with You…. Your Fatherhood Today we celebrate You Love you Ermias
London first shared her feelings on Nipsey’s passing just hours after his alleged killer was arrested. She wrote, “I am completely lost. I’ve lost my best friend. My sanctuary. My protector. My soul….I’m lost without you. We are lost without you babe. I have no words.”
She later revealed a tattoo she got of Nipsey’s face on her forearm with the words “God Will Rise.” As part of the tattoo, there are two checkered flags that are identical to a tattoo Nipsey had on his neck.
The actress captioned the photo, writing, “Real Love Never Dies When you see me, you will always see him #LoveYouHussle #TMC”
Hussle died from gunshot wounds to the head and torso after being executed in the parking lot of his clothing store the afternoon of March 31.
According to the death certificate, Hussle did not suffer long and his death is listed as “rapid.”
The medical examiner ruled Nipsey’s cause of death to be a homicide and the man suspected of pulling the trigger, Eric Holder, pled not guilty during an initial court appearance.
After his autopsy was completed, Nipsey’s body was picked up by his family and transported to a famous funeral home in South Los Angeles.
He is scheduled to be honored this week with the Humanitarian Award at the 2019 BET Awards on June 23.
The network is also planning a tribute performance during the show for the late rapper featuring DJ Khaled, YG, and John Legend.
