Baby on board? Not so fast!
After rumors swirled that Lauren London was expecting her third child with an undisclosed father, the longtime girlfriend of slain rapper Nipsey Hussle took to social media to set the record straight.
“Woke up to some straight bulls**t,” she tweeted. “Rumors ! Lies ! On a woman trying her best to help?! Please stop. I’m NOT pregnant.”
The Los Angeles Sentinel, a West Coast weekly newspaper, cited an unnamed source earlier this week claiming that London was expecting and that there was an “undeniable sense of warmth surrounding the news.”
"The American actress, model, and television personality has experienced many different levels of grief behind losing her significant other and father to her child, Nipsey Hussle, but being a mother has been an anchor through her waves of sadness,” the outlet reported. “The ATL movie star is looking to celebrate later this week, with an intimate baby shower.”
The model-actress already has two children: 11-year-old Kameron Carter with "Sucker For Pain" rapper Lil Wayne, and 4-year-old Kross Ermias Asghedom with Hussle, whom she was engaged to at the time of his death.
The "Victory Lap" rapper was shot at least 10 times outside his store Marathon Clothing in South Los Angeles on March 31, 2019.
Close family friend and Hussle's former bodyguard, J Roc, also came to London's defense, calling the pregnancy rumors “fake news.”
"You people is miserable but sense [sic] we got y’all attention What It Feel Like Hussle x Hov 2/12/21 #TMC,” he wrote via Instagram.
J Roc's "What It Feel Like" mention is a reference to a new track on the Judas and the Black Messiah film soundtrack, which pairs Hussle and Jay-Z for the first time. The song dropped this week.
