Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David Cowan made Nipsey Hussle’s brother, Samuel Asghedom aka Blacc Sam, the permanent administrator of Nip’s estate.
The decision came today after a hearing that was conducted in a closed doors per the request of Asghedom and his family. Today’s verdict granting Blacc Sam as the permanent administrator means he will supervise the estate until Nip’s children turn 18 years old, afterwards each child will be granted half of Nipsey’s approximately $8 million estate.
Information on today’s hearing was provided afterwards by Tanisha Foster, the mother of Nip’s oldest child Emani, and Foster’s lawyer Larry Lewellyn. Foster and her lawyer claim the judge did not grant temporary guardianship of Emani to Blacc Sam, Nip’s sister Samantha Smith, and their mother.
Lewellyn said he was pleased with the judge’s decision not to appoint the trio as temporary guardians. Another hearing date has been set for who should be named permanent guardians. That date is 10/15. Foster’s lawyer stated his client continues to visit with Emani, who has been in the care of Samantha Smith since the rapper’s death. This comes after a judge ruled in May that Emani would stay with Samantha Smith.
