Written by Rika C on January 30, 2023
Lauren London has finally graced the big screen almost four years since her partner and father of her child, Nipsey Hussle, was killed in 2019.
Lauren London was recently cast in the Netflix movie You People as the character Amira. The movie is a romantic comedy film directed by Kenya Barris and co-written with Jonah Hill. The cast includes several award-winning actors and actresses, including Hill, London, David Duchovny, Nia Long, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Eddie Murphy.
The movie centers on a new couple and their families with plays on modern love, cultural differences, and even generational gaps. Other cast members include Mike Epps, Yung Miami, and others. While speaking on the Drew Barrymore show, Lauren was transparent as she shared how her children reacted to her going back to work after her fiancé, Nipsey Hussle, was killed by a gunman in 2019.
Barrymore began by asking Lauren, “How did you find the courage to go back to work” after Hussle was killed? The actress has been out of the public eye for years, only being seen when Hussle was honored by the City of Los Angeles last year.
Lauren shared that it’s never the same, but she keeps going for their children.
“Every day is different and so some days you don’t want to, you just want to lay there.” My big reason is my children because they do deserve a really happy mom. They deserve joy and they deserve a house that has music playing and incense going and light coming in the windows, they deserve that,” she said.
