Former NFL Player Reggie Bush Donates $10,000 to Nipsey Hussle’s Kids
A GoFundMe page started by former NFL player Reggie Bush to raise money for Nipsey Hussle's kids has been removed at the request of Nipsey's family. Following the announcement of the fund by Bush on Friday (April 12), Karen Civil, who worked closely with the late rapper in a managerial role, strangely called out Bush via Twitter on Saturday (April 13).
"Please remove this tweet as it was privately asked of you already," she commented under Bush's post directing people to give money to his fund, which he said will benefit Nipsey's two children Emani and Kross. "The family nor Lauren requested this and you did it anyway."
Bush's GoFundMe page has since been taken down. Later, Civil replied to someone asking Bush who gave him permission to start a fund on the family's behalf. Civil responded, "The campaign was removed as we requested. Family did not ask for this."

On Friday (April 12), the former NFL player and his wife, Lilit Avagyan, have teamed up with GoFundMe to create a charitable account that will benefit the late rapper’s children. Bush and his wife donated the initial seed money of $10,000 to the account, and they're both encouraging his followers to pitch in and give what they can.
The goal is to raise $100,000, which will go into a trust fund set up for Nipsey’s two kids: Kross, his son with London, and Emani, Nipsey's daughter from a previous relationship. So far, over $13,000 has been donated to the GoFundMe account in less than six hours.
Bush was inspired to create this initiative after watching Nipsey’s mother, Angelique Smith, speak about her beloved son at the memorial service on Thursday (April 11) in Los Angeles.
