However, things took a turn in 2022 as Tanisha Foster began fighting for the custody of her daughter once more. She revealed in the court documents that she agreed to give up her daughter because she was not financially stable at the time and wanted the best for her.

She revealed that Nipsey Hussle’s family began withholding financial assistance and reducing visitation after their agreement. Tanish said that they used their financial status and influence to ignore their precedence and control the wishes of her and her daughter. She further showed her resistance to her daughter continuing with her present guardians and wants to take over.

Emani Asghedom’s mother told the court to give a neutral, experienced financial planner charge over her daughter’s inheritance.

In turn, Samiel Asghedom filed a third status report, claiming that Tanisha was causing a delay in the case. Meanwhile, the custody battle is still going on at this time.
