Thousands of people gathered Thursday (Apr. 11) to celebrate the life of Nipsey Hussle, but there was one person notably missing: Tanisha Asghedom, the mother of Hussle’s firstborn.

Several members of Hussle’s family took to the stage at the Staples Center to remember the fallen rapper, including his sister, his longtime girlfriend Lauren London and their 2-year-old son, Kross, London’s son with Lil Wayne, Kameron, and Hussle’s oldest child, Emani.

Emani is the daughter Hussle shared with Asghedom (aka Chyna Hussle).

As Emani seemed too overcome with emotion to speak at her father’s memorial, many fans noticed her mother wasn’t onstage with the rest of the family to comfort the young girl.

Asghedom and Hussle—whose birth name is Ermias Asghedom—were in a serious relationship for several years before the rapper began dating London in 2013.

The couple was so close that Tanisha took on Hussle’s last name, though they were never married. She also adopted his stage name, choosing to go by “Chyna Hussle.”

Grieving girlfriend London has received much public support, but some feel Asghedom’s grief has been mostly ignored. Especially given her absence from the memorial, thoughtful fans have offered her support and their condolences through social media.

London and Asghedom have not had the best relationship in the past. Asghedom has even insinuated that she and Hussle never officially broke up, and in 2014, she taunted London on Twitter stating that Hussle had recently professed his love to her.

Nevertheless, one would hope that this would not be a reason to prevent the mother of Hussle’s first child to attend his memorial service, if not just to console their daughter.

Asghedom has not publicly commented on posted on social media since Hussle was killed outside his LA clothing store on March 31st.
