Lauren London is continuing to mourn the death of her boyfriend of six years Nipsey Hussle.
Nearly two weeks after the late rapper and activist was laid to rest, Lauren took to Instagram on Easter Sunday (April 21) to remember Nipsey, born Ermias Asgehdom, with a touching tribute.
"Missing you," she captioned a black-and-white photo of her and Nipsey on the 2019 Grammys red carpet as they looked adoringly at one another.
As fans know, the couple shares a two-year-old son, Kross Asgehdom. During Nipsey's April 11 memorial service, Lauren spoke about her greatest pain being that their son will now grow up without his dad. "My pain is from a 2-year-old that probably won’t remember how much his dad loved him," she said in her eulogy. "This is something that I don’t really understand but I know Ermias always used to say that you can’t possess people; that you experience them. I’m so honored and blessed to experience such a man."
"We lost an incredible soul. We lost a real one. We won't ever be the same," she added. "But in Hussle's words, 'The game is going to test you, never fold. What's in you, they can't take away,' and he's in all of us," Lauren shared before concluding her speech with Nipsey's famous slogan, "the marathon continues."
Hours after the 34-year-old actress said her final goodbye to Nipsey, Lauren shared a heartwarming photo of her latest tribute to Nip — a tattoo of his face on her lower arm above the words "God will rise.".
"Real Love Never Dies," she captioned an Instagram photo of her tat. "When you see me, you will always see him #LoveYouHussle #TMC."
Nipsey was gunned down outside his clothing store on March 31. His alleged murderer is currently behind bars and facing life in prison.
