"I’ve lost my best friend,"
In an emotional post on Instagram, Lauren London hailed the late rapper as her “best friend”, only hours after police confirmed they had arrested a suspect in connection with his death.
“I am completely lost , I’ve lost my best friend,” wrote the model.
“My sanctuary, my protector, my soul… I’m lost without you, we are lost without you babe. I have no words.”
Lauren and Nipsey had been dating for six years and have a child together – two-year-old Kross Asghedom.
The pair originally met after she tried to obtain an expensive limited edition release of one of Nipsey’s mixtapes as a gift for a co-star in reality show The Game.
The Instagram post marks the first time that she has spoken out since the rapper’s death on Sunday.
Police have since confirmed that 29-year-old Eric Holder was arrested last night.
Confirming the arrest, the official LAPD HQ Twitter account later posted: “Eric Holder, the suspected killer of Nipsey Hussle, has been arrested and is in police custody.
“Thank you to both our community for the heightened awareness/vigilance, and our partners at the [Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department].”
