It’s been three years since the world lost Nipsey Hussle.
On the anniversary of his death on Thursday (March 31), Lauren London is once again honoring the love of her life. Taking to Instagram, the actress shared a touching tribute to the late great rapper and father of her son.
“Loving You Here There Then Now Forever and After,” London wrote alongside a photo of a smiling Nipsey.
“Long Live The King Ermias Asghedom Hussle Man,” she added, referencing Nipsey’s real name.
She received messages of support from friends including Kehlani, La La, Angie Martinez, T.I., and YG, who commented, “love sis.”
The couple began dating in 2013 after meeting on social media. In 2016, they welcomed their son Kross Ermias, who turned five in August. In honor of his birthday, London shared a new photo of “Baby Hussle,” who bears a striking resemblance to his father.
In a 2020 interview with Jada Pinkett Smith on “Red Table Talk,” London revealed how she’s been coping with her grief since Nipsey was fatally shot outside his Marathon Clothing store on March 31, 2019.
“I don’t always wake up on the enlightened side of the bed and the days that I don’t, I let myself ’cause I’m human,” she said. “I let myself be human and I’m gentle with myself, and I find things that matter and so I try to live with a purpose.”
Fans and friends including The Game also shared tributes to the Crenshaw legend, who would have been 36.
