Nipsey Hussle’s family is saying thanks but no thanks to Reggie Bush.
Last week the retired NFL player and his wife Lilit started a GoFundMe to raise money for the slain rappers children and let’s just say it didn’t go over well.
On Saturday, mere minutes after Bush posted an update to his fans about his plan to raise 100k for Hussle’s children, Nips business partner Karen Civil shut him all the way down.

“I understand you’re motivated and want to help, but there are other ways. His family already asked you NOT to do this. People are literally grieving over a husband, father, brother, uncle, friend and someone who meant so much too so many people. This is not the time for this,” Karen tweeted to Reggie.
The former football player explained how he has no ill internions, but Karen reminded him it wasn’t about that. “I never spoke on what you had to gain, Simply asked you to remove the tweet, just like you did the gofundme,” she wrote. “You asked prior to do this and was told no by family, but did it anyway. You never once spoke to Nip in the gym the many times you saw each other.”
“You literally had this campaign go up, while he was finally being laid to rest,” she added. “If you are so compelled for what Nip stood for in his community. Raise that hundred thousand dollars for women who lost their significant other/husband to gun violence and financially cannot provide for their families.”
Reggie had put out a video explaining that he was hoping to get $100,000 and kicked things off by donating 10k.
“In partnership with GoFundMe and with the help of our marketing team over at CAA, we have been empowered by Lauren London, Nipsey’s girlfriend, to put together a GoFundMe account that directly benefits Nipsey’s two kids, Emani and Kross,” the description read.
Unfortunately Lauren London and the Asghedom family did not authorize the move.
Sources tell TMZ … Nipsey made sure his 2 children, Emani and Kross Asghedom, would never have to rely on other people for money.
While there have been multiple crowdfunding pages popping up for them — including the one Bush started — the family wants everyone to know the kids are more than alright.
Bush’s page has now been deleted.
