Lauren London created arguably the most emotional moment of the Nipsey Hussle memorial service when she shared a personal text to her late boyfriend during eulogy.
The beautiful Lauren revealed how much she loves the slain rapper and how he had hoped to spend the rest of her life with him before his unfortunately, untimely death. In her speech before she read the text, she revealed her “pain is from a 2-year old that probably won’t remember how much his dad love him.” She then went on to read a text message she had written and sent to Nipsey in January.
“I want you to know I feel real joy in my heart when I’m around you. I feel safe around you. Protected. Like a shield over me when you’re around. I’m totally myself when I’m with you, which is probably annoying because I don’t wear my cool mask anymore. You’ve made me into more of a woman.
“You’ve given me the opportunities to really love a man. You’ve been with me while I’ve been sick, through all my fears. You have encouraged me and inspired me to reach higher.
I’ve learned so much about myself with you. You’ve been my turn-up and my church. I wouldn’t want to go through this journey with anyone but you. I look up to you in a lot of ways, and I strive to educate myself like you have. When we are at odds, I feel defeated and sad, knowing that we are so much better than that.
“I just want you know that you’ve been the greatest boyfriend to me. You aren’t perfect, but I would never ask you to be. You and I work. We fit. And you’re the coolest guy in the world to me. Still. I love you so much, unconditionally. I’m never gonna give up on you. My love and my devotion is to you.”
The memorial service took place at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles where there was an extremely huge crowd filling the hall and even outside of it. Many celebrities were present as a show of respect and tribute to the very loved Nipsey.
