In a recent interview on Angie Martinez In real life podcast, London revealed how she has been helping her children navigate life since Hussle passed away. “Theirs [grief] manifests itself in different ways. Children internalize everything until their teenage years, so I’m sure I do my best to help them cultivate the best way to deal with their emotions through therapy,” she explained. “And I try to be the best example. They see me meditate, they accompany me in my spiritual retreats.

When asked if they enjoyed the retreats, London explained that they were indifferent, but their eldest could probably do without them. “They are still very young. I’m sure Kam got over it. Or any type of church, whatever I do that feeds my soul, I share with them because I feel like I don’t know where they’re going with their life but [so they’ll say] “I remember my mom being angry or stressed and doing this” or “Let me try that”. They are doing very well, much better now. And I love them so much,” she said.

The London children were 8 and 2 when Hussle died. Kameron even spoke at the public memorial. She told Martinez that she felt responsible for breaking the news to them. “I had to break the news to them. Nobody could have done that for me. I had to do it,” said the ATL star explained.

A retreat she had attended years before is something she leaned on for conversation. “In my previous years, I went to a seminar on death, and I learned that no one really dies and it’s just an experience in physical form and we’re attached to our personalities, and we’re not only souls, and we continue, and if you have a spiritual relationship with someone on Earth, you will have one with them when you leave Earth,” she explained.

She says the experience kind of prepared her for the difficult conversation she had with her children. “It gave my tongue to speak to my children,” she said. “So I say the words have changed, and I’m still saying, ‘Dad’s everywhere… he feels us, we feel him, and every time there’s something you want to say, you don’t. You may not hear, but you will feel it, and follow these tips and write letters or talk to him.

Her children motivate her to continue

London admits that grieving is a journey and that some days are better than others. When she feels ready to give up for a few days, she says she looks to her children for motivation. Now, she is focused on continuing to cultivate more family time and focus on peace. While she is back at work, she is very selective about the projects she takes on as her home life is the most important.
