One of a kind. Games People Play actress Parker Mckenna Posey opened up to In Touch exclusively about Lauren London‘s relationship with Nipsey Hussle and said their bond was something everyone “should strive for.”
“To just see the love that [he] and Lauren share, like, they have some different kind of love,” the 23-year-old said of her costar, 34.
Nipsey, 33, visited the set just days before he was shot and killed outside his clothing store on March 31. “He actually came to set the last day [of filming], so it was really crazy, and then a couple of days later, everything ended up happening,” she said of his murder. “So it was really really hard, I think, for all of us and just shocking. Most of all super shocking, but thank God that he was able to stop by.”
She added, “I know he touched many, many lives around the freaking world. Him coming to set and being able to sit down and talk to the cast members. Everyone had an amazing story to tell, and everybody got to share a special moment with him. He was the number one game giver; he was so full of knowledge. It was amazing for him to be able to stop by, coincidentally, on our last day and just being able to share any moment with him was amazing.”
On April 4, days after the shooting, suspect Eric Ronald Holder Jr. was charged with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon, a press release obtained by In Touch revealed. He was accused of wounding two other individuals in addition to killing the rap artist.
“The criminal complaint also includes allegations that he personally used a firearm and caused great bodily injury and death,” the press release read. “He is scheduled to be arraigned today [April 4] in Department 40 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center.”
Lauren, who also shares a young son with the late rapper, broke her silence on Nipsey’s passing via Instagram on April 2. “I am completely lost I’ve lost my best friend, my sanctuary, my protector, my soul … I’m lost without you. We are lost without you, babe, I have no words,” she wrote.
Now, the GoP cast is rallying around her. “We’re constantly reaching out, making sure she’s okay and picking up the slack,” Parker concluded.
Our continued thoughts go out to Lauren, Nipsey’s family and their loved ones during this tragic time.
Games People Play airs on BET Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET.
