It was the first Father's Day, Lauren had to spend without her love, Nipsey Hussle after the rapper was tragically gunned down a couple of months ago.
Moreover, she has not forgotten him, as she took the time to share a tribute to her late partner, expressing how much she still felt for him and how much she missed him.
In the tribute, she pointed out that the way he handled himself as a father was one of the main factors that drew her to him in the first place.
The tribute was also shared and commented on all over social media, with many people chiming in to say that they also missed the rapper and to express their support for Lauren London.
Lauren seems to be holding up more or less fine for now, although it is clear that the incident has taken a toll on her mental state, and she is not quite the same person right now.
Many people around Hussle were similarly affected by his death, and the shooting shook the rap world quite heavily.
In the meantime, some have started attempts to restore the rapper's legacy, working on continuing the things that he had started while he was alive, and trying to improve the situation around his neighborhood, much like Hussle himself was constantly trying to do.
