Actress Lauren London was a topic of discussion for several hours on social media after it was reported that the “ATL” star was pregnant. London, who shares a child with Lil Wayne and another with slain rapper Nipsey Hussle, has yet to comment on these rumors.
Known for keeping a pretty low profile, London stays mostly out of the spotlight these days. She was understandably front and center for much of the aftermath of Hussle’s death, but in the time since has kept to herself. Which is why the rumors were such a shock because no one knew she was dating again, let alone with child.
The reports were made by the Los Angeles Sentinel, a Black-owned newspaper with headquarters on Crenshaw Blvd. The article reported that Lauren London is expecting a child, and basically announced her pregnancy for the first time. However, this information was released before the actress had made a formal announcement.
Now according to Hussle’s former bodyguard J-Roc, these reports are “Fake news”. Posting in his IG story, he continued,”You people is miserable but sense [sic] we got y’all attention What It Feel Like Hussle x Hov 2/12/21 #TMC.”
The song he’s referring to, “What It Feel Like”, is an upcoming posthumous collaboration between Hussle and Jay-Z that is scheduled to be featured in on the soundtrack for the upcoming film Judas and the Black Messiah and was previewed in a recently trailer.
Shortly after J-Roc dismissed the news, TMZ went live with a report stating they’d been in touch with London’s camp and that the reports are indeed not true.
J-Roc famously retired from being a bodyguard after Hussle’s murder in 2019. “I’m done with all this Shit I retire from being a bodyguard I love you HUSSLE THA GREAT” he wrote in a lengthy post, reflecting on his “brother , best friend, [and] mentor.” He continued “Never in a million years I thought I would be writing some shit like this … we haven’t made a 100 Million yet … we was suppose to grow old and I call u big nose shoot jokes on you all day… but instead I’m here in tears writing this I wish I was there I would switch places with you any day the world need you here I’m so confused.”
Lauren London has now responded to the rumors as well stating, “”Woke up to some straight bullsh*t,” wrote the actress to her millions of followers. “Rumors! Lies! On a woman trying her best to heal?! Please stop. I’m NOT pregnant.”
