Two days after Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed in front of his Marathon Clothing store, his longtime girlfriend Lauren London broke her silence on social media.
“I am completely lost,” the actress wrote alongside a photo of the late rapper on Tuesday (April 2). “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.”
The couple had been together since 2013 and share 2-year-old son Kross. They met via Instagram after London purchased Hussle’s mixtape as a wrap present for her The Game costars. He followed her back on the social media platform and sent her a DM.
The 33-year-old Grammy-nominated rapper, whose real name was Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was gunned down on Sunday around 4 p.m., according to police and the coroner’s office. Two others were injured in the shooting. Police soon identified Eric Holder as a suspect and arrested him on Tuesday afternoon.
