Amid the crush of social media tributes to fathers everywhere, Nipsey Hussle’s girlfriend is quietly remembering the slain rapper with a family photo.
“One of the reasons I fell in Love with You … Your Fatherhood,” she wrote on Instagram for Father’s Day, captioning an image of their son, Kross, now 2½, snuggled on her shoulder with his pacifier, with his dad gently tapping the toddler’s chest.
“Today we celebrate You,” the model wrote, ending her post with a heart emoji. “Love you Ermias.”
In her Instagram Story, she added, “Happy Father’s Day to The Great” and “Sent a lot of prayers to Heaven last night.”
Hussle (real name Ermias Asghedom) also had a daughter, Emani, from a previous relationship.

At his memorial service on April 11, London praised the hip-hop star as a partner, father, “majestic soul” and relentless seeker of knowledge.
“He researched everything,” she told mourners. “Completely self-taught. He went to bed reading audiobooks, which I said was nerdy but thought was secretly cool.”
She noted that “grief is the final act of love,” and invoked Hussle’s words: “Until we meet again, the marathon continues.”
Last month, a grand jury indicted suspect Eric Holder in Hussle’s shooting death on one count of murder, two counts each of attempted murder and assault with a firearm and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.
