The internet is collectively apologizing to actress Lauren London today. The widow was on the receiving end of some really nasty comments last month when rumors began to surface that she may be pregnant.
Known for keeping a pretty low profile, London stays mostly out of the spotlight. She was understandably front and center for much of the aftermath of Hussle’s passing, 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.
London currently has 2 children, one with the late Hussle (Kross Ermias Asghedom), and a baby with rapper Lil Wayne (Kameron Carter).
The response to her rumored pregnancy was pretty nasty, with some even alleging that one of Nipsey’s former colleagues fathered it. The reports were made by the Los Angeles Sentinel, a Black-owned newspaper with headquarters on Crenshaw Blvd.
Hussle’s bodyguard J-Roc was the first to shut rumors down, calling it “Fake news”. Posting in his IG story, he said,”You people is miserable”.
London followed suit, taking her to Twitter to let people know she was not here for the rumors and insensitivity. “Woke up to some straight BS. Rumors ! Lies ! On a woman trying her best to heal?! Please stop. I’m NOT pregnant.”

The Amazon Prime movie is called Without Remorse. London and the cast posted trailers to their social media accounts today to create anticipation for the films April 30th release.
While its not clear if the initial rumor was sparked by someone who’d seen her on set, it does seem like a big coincidence.
The film is based on a Tom Clancy book and revolves around Jordan’s character Navy SEAL Sr. Chief John Kelly. He’s seeking justice for the murder of his wife (London), and their family.
