Nipsey Hussle’s Memorial is set for Thursday (April 11th) at the Staples Center, which is the day after the Los Angeles Clippers’ last NBA game. The center can hold approximately 21,000 people.
According to TMZ, tickets to the service were said to be sold online. However Karen Civil, a close friend and business partner of Nipsey, stated that the statement was not true via Twitter.
She stated, “I want to officially let ‘Nipsey Hussle’ fans and supporters know there will be no selling of tickets to his funeral. A lot of incorrect information was released today, please know in the upcoming days an official statement will be made soon”.
Nipsey was killed outside of his clothing store by suspect Eric Holder last Sunday (March 31st). He is survived by his mother (Angelique Smith), his father (Dawit Asghedom), his brother (Samiel Asghedom), his longtime girlfriend (Lauren London), his daughter (Emani) and his son (Kross).
