Audio

Lauren London has strived to be a role model for her kids who also lost Nipsey.

Lauren London appeared on Jay Shetty’s podcast “On Purpose” on Tuesday, the 37-year-old actress shared her thoughts on how she’s been able to deal with the loss of rapper Nipsey Hussle, who died over three years ago.

“When you have this plan for your life, as you should, if or when that gets derailed, and you have to go to plan B that you didn’t plan on, it is the ultimate test of surrender,” London confessed to host Shetty. “Because at the end of the day as much control as we think we have, we really don’t.”

The actress from the film “True Story” said that when life takes its path, “surrendering” to the things we cannot control is an act of bravery on her part.

Lauren London and Nipsey Hussle were together for six years before his death in 2019. They have a son, Kross Ermias, who is five years old. She is also the mother of 12-year-old Kameron Samuel Ari, whom she shares with her ex-fiancé Lil Wayne and whom she co-parents with him. Hussle was shot down outside of his Marathon clothing shop in Los Angeles, California.

Her choice to return to acting after Hussle’s death, which she announced in April of 2021, was made in order to provide a positive example for her two boys. She revealed to Entertainment Tonight that actor and friend Michael B. Jordan approached her with an offer to help her return to the big screen.

“Michael sought me out, and he was really concerned about whether or not I would ever be able to return to work,” London said. In the end, he said something along the lines of, “Look, I’m not sure if this is what you want to do, but I have to follow my gut, so I have to ask you if you can just read the script.”

When she accepted the offer, she recalls thinking about her children as she did so “We’re not going to stop, you understand? We all have a purpose, and it’s vital for my boys to see me dealing with loss in a proactive manner rather than just curling up in a ball as I did for a long period of time when my husband passed away.”

“Especially for my oldest kid, who is just a bit more observant,” she said. “But we will continue going forward as we had to, as he would want us to.”
