For those unfamiliar with the couple, Nipsey Hussle, born Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was a rapper/songwriter who came from the West Coast hip-hop scene. Lauren is an actress who is best known for her role in the film ATL and her character Kiera Whitaker on the BET comedy, The Game.
Nipsey and Lauren began dating in 2013, and they welcomed their first child, Kross, together in August 2016. Lauren has one child, a son, from a previous relationship with Lil Wayne and Nipsey had a daughter, Emani, from a previous relationship.
Nipsey was reportedly shot multiple times in the parking lot of his store, Marathon Clothing, in South Los Angeles. He was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police believed that Nipsey knew the shooter and there was a personal matter between the two. Police have identified 29-year-old Eric Holder as the shooter and have brought him in for questioning.
