“I’m completely lost”: Nipsey Hussle’s girlfriend Lauren London speaks out after rapper’s shooting

"I’ve lost my best friend,"

The girlfriend of Nipsey Hussle says she’s “completely lost” after the rapper was shot dead in Los Angeles on Sunday.

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].”
