Hours after the Los Angeles police department confirmed they apprehended the alleged gunman responsible for the murder of Nipsey Hussle on Tuesday (April 2), the late rapper's girlfriend Lauren London broke her silence on the tragedy and shared a couple of heartfelt words on social media.

Taking to Instagram, the actress posted a series of photos of Nipsey, including some family photos. Together, the couple shared a son, Kross, 2, as well as co-parented London's son from her relationship with Lil Wayne, Kameron, 9, and Nipsey's daughter, Emani, 7, from a previous relationship.

"I am completely lost. I've lost my best friend," London captioned the personal photo gallery. "My sanctuary. My protector. My soul.... I'm lost without you. We are lost without you babe. I have no words."

The pair recently reflected on their long-running relationship for an in-depth interview with GQ for the March 2019 issue, including on touching on how they met through social media in 2013. The couple welcomed their first child together in 2016.

During the interview, the couple reflected on how they work to balance their careers and family life, speaking fondly of one another and reflecting on how together they worked through London's decision to turn down acting roles to become a full-time mother.

"Lauren was handpicked by John Singleton to do 'Snowfall.' She read, got the part, shot the pilot…did stunts…this was her dream role," Nipsey shared during the interview. "And then she got pregnant with our son. That was a really hard decision for her to make."

London added that her choice to turn down the role was "the toughest decision of my career by far."

"I didn't put any pressure on her for whatever decision she wanted to make," Nipsey said at the time. "I learned then that what she believes in, she really believes in."

After posting on Instagram on Tuesday, countless friends of the couple, such as Kevin Hart, Swizz Beatz, Ava DuVernay, Fabolous and MC Lyte, among others, commented on the post to reassure London that she is loved and being kept in their prayers.
