Lauren London is speaking out for the first time since the death of her longtime partner, rapper Nipsey Hussle.
The 34-year-old actress posted a slideshow of photos of the rapper and their family Tuesday on Instagram.
“I am completely lost. I’ve lost my best friend. My sanctuary. My protector My soul....,” she captioned the post. “I’m lost without you. We are lost without you babe I have no words.”
Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was shot and killed Sunday in front of his Los Angeles store, Marathon Clothing.
London posted her message hours after Los Angeles police arrested Eric Holder, the man they believe killed the Grammy award-nominated lyricist, who was celebrated for his album “Victory Lap” last year.
London and Hussle met in his clothing store. They were together for five years and have a son, Kross Asghedom.
The couple also formed a blended family with Emani Asghedom, the rapper’s daughter from a previous relationship, and Cameron Carter, London's son with Lil Wayne.
Condolences for London and tributes to Hussle have continued to pour in on social media.
