Lauren London Remembers Diddy Encouraging Her After The Death Of Nipsey Hussle
Nipsey Hussle’s death sparked a phenomenon that has never before been seen in history. The rapper and activist was shot and killed in front of his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles, right in the middle of the community that he supported, setting up a public outcry. The trial against Eric Holder has finally come to a close after several years of delays, and he was convicted guilty of killing Nipsey. Now, everyone is waiting to learn Holder’s fate.
On the Angie Martinez IRL Podcast, Nipsey’s longterm companion Lauren London made an appearance and spoke at length about her life following his passing. She spoke about wanting to leave Los Angeles because it is “too heavy” for her right now, and she also discussed advice Diddy gave her in the wake of Nipsey’s passing.
The Staples Center (now Crypto.com Arena) was packed for Nipsey’s public memorial service, but London said she didn’t want to go. She described that time as “surreal” in her life.
“I didn’t even want to get dressed. I was gonna wear sweats,” the actress said. However, Diddy made sure he motivated her to continue.g. “Somebody pulled me aside… Puff pulled me aside and was like, ‘Look, boo. You have shown everybody what it looks like to hold a man down and to love him. Now, show them what it looks like when it all crumbles. That’s your responsibility.'”
“He was like, ‘Show up with your head up,'” London added. And that’s exactly what she did.
