The death of Nipsey Hussle was one that rocked the hip-hop community. Nipsey’s untimely death reminded us all that life is too short. And, his fiancée Lauren London, their children, and his family are all still mourning him.
Lauren Is Still In Mourning But continues acting
Lauren and Nipsey’s family are still grieving. And rightfully so. When you lose someone close to you it is difficult to navigate through it. In this case, Nipsey’s death was felt by many people. Whether you knew Nipsey personally or not his death left a lasting impact. However, because Lauren is well known as an actress her grief has been greatly publicized. Especially, since she has continued to take on acting roles.
For this reason, the media is interested in knowing about her every move. Up until recently, Lauren had not done many interviews. Lauren recently sat down at “Red Table” with Jada Pinkett Smith. Lauren shared this,
“For me, what’s really been important is connecting with God, and that’s been a struggle because something horrible happens in your eyes and you’re like, ‘How God?’,” the actress shared with Pinkett Smith. “It’s not easy. I don’t always wake up on the enlightened side of the bed, you know. And the days that I don’t, I let myself because I’m human. I’m gentle with myself. I find things that matter, and so I try to live with a purpose. When I’m having a bad day, I meditate. I go within.”
Lauren admitted that she still draws strength from Nipsey. She mentioned it is because of Nipsey’s words and influences she is able to go on. In another interview, Lauren found it difficult to answer questions from Michael Beckwith. Which is certainly understandable considering what she has been through?
Of course, we must consider that talking about death is still difficult. Not to mention, Lauren still has the challenge of raising Nipsey’s son without him. That alone can be difficult when you are grieving as well. With that being said, Lauren has shown us how much of a special person she really is. At least, that is what comes across in her interviews.
So, it is understandable that she may do well in some interviews but so well in others. The emotion of grief is tricky. There are times you can talk about your loved one, and there are times your emotions will not permit you to do so. In spite of, been at a loss for words with Michael Lauren has proven to be resilient and graceful under pressure.
By the way, Lauren can currently be seen in a starring role with actor Michael B. Jordan in the new movie “Without Remorse”. In my opinion, Lauren is a great actress. Her roles in the movie” ATL” with Clifford “T.I. Harris Jr. and her TV role in “The Game” showcased Lauren as an actress with staying power. It is good to see Lauren back on the big screen.
