Lauren London is breaking her silence in the wake of Nipsey Hussle’s death.
Two days after her boyfriend was shot and killed in Los Angeles, the 34-year-old actress returned to Instagram to open up for the first time about losing her best friend and the father of her son.
“I am completely lost,” wrote a heartbroken London alongside photos of the couple and their family. “I’ve lost my best friend.”
She continued her emotional tribute, writing, “My sanctuary My protector My soul…. I’m lost without you We are lost without you babe I have no words.”
London’s friends including T.I., La La, Karrueche, and Cassie shared their support for her in the comments. “I am so sorry,” said the “Me & U” singer. “You’re one of the strongest people I know in the world. Praying for you and the family nonstop 🙏🏽🙏🏽 There really are no words. Here for you and the babies always sis. I love you Leather.”
Teyana Taylor added, “We love you baby… whatever you need. We here!”
Hussle and London began dating in 2013 after meeting on social media. They have a two-and-a-half-year-old son named Kross together. He is the second child for the couple, who both have children from previous relationships.
The Grammy-nominated rapper was shot and killed outside his Marathon Clothing store on Sunday. He was 33. On Tuesday, police arrested the suspected killer, 29-year-old Eric Holder.
