LOS ANGELES - MAY 03: Lauren London arrives for the VH1's 3rd Annual 'Dear Mama: A Love Letter to Moms' on May 3, 2018 in Los Angeles, CA

Lauren London is still recovering from the death of the love of her life—Nipsey Hussle.

In a recent interview, the actress opened up about the tight bond between her and the late rapper. London shared that their love of truth-seeking brought them closer together.

“We were very avid readers and so when we moved in together and put our books together, you can really see who’s books were who’s,” she said on the “Jay Shetty’s On Purpose” podcast. “He was an intellectual, I would say he’s a spiritual intellectual, and I am a spiritual emotional person so all of my books were on heart. And so to me it really represented male and feminine energy.”

The couple dated for five years before he was gunned down outside his Marathon clothing store by an acquaintance. His death shook the hip-hop world. London hold’s on to the memories of her special connection with the west coast icon.

She continued: “We were always talking about how we could have a better relationship with God as individuals, and our purpose and our missions in life, and how we just wanted to be on purpose as individuals, and how we just helped each other on our own individual missions. Our relationship was actually more spiritual than it was anything. We bonded on our quest for the truth.”

Before getting back to work, London took a few months following Hussle’s death to focus on her children. While Hussle’s death may have “derailed” her plans, she acknowledged that life must go on.

“When you have this plan for your life, as you should, if or when that gets derailed, and you have plan B now to go off that you didn’t plan on, it is the ultimate test of surrender,” she shared. “Because at the end of the day as much control as we think we have, we do not.”
