London’s social media is filled with memories of her and Hussle. On Mar. 31, she penned a special post in honor of his second death anniversary.
“The Day Of Ermias’ transition changed the course of my life forever. 2 years, and it feels like yesterday and eternity all at the same time. Grief and Healing have been constant companions on this journey,” she wrote in her Instagram post.
London has been open about the difficulties of the grieving process. She and Hussle were together for five years and share a son together. In a chat with Jada Pinkett Smith, London said her faith in God was tested amid Hussle’s death.
“For me, what’s really been important is like, connecting with God. And that’s been a struggle because something horrible happens in your eyes and you’re like, ‘How God?’” she told Pinkett Smith. “Knowing that there is life after this life – it’s not easy. I don’t always wake up on the enlightened side of the bed and the days that I don’t I let myself because I’m human and I’m not always going to feel so, ‘I’m gonna be okay,’ and I don’t. And that’s okay too.”
London’s Instagram post continued with the actor promising to keep his spirit alive. “In Honor of His life and demonstration…may all of Heaven exalt Your name for all You did on Earth and beyond.”
