The trial for the man charged with killing Nipsey Hussle started, and now a woman testified that she unwittingly drove Holder to the shooting scene.
35-year-old Bryannita Nicholson testified that she and Eric Holder were in a casual relationship for five weeks at the point where she pulled up in the shopping center where Nipsey Hussle was located. The woman said he was surprised to see Hussle on March 31, 2019, and testified that she said, “‘Ooh, there goes Nipsey, he fine," Nicholson testified, “I want to take a picture with him.'”
Nicholson is reportedly getting immunity in exchange for her testimony and said she didn’t know Hussle owned the shopping center where his Marathon Clothing store was based, along with the Master Burger restaurant reportedly stopped to get food ahead of shooting the rapper.
Holder got out of the car while she was looking for parking, which led her to say, “I just thought he was trying to beat me to go see him before I saw him.” Nicholson then detailed the argument she heard, saying she joined Holder during his conversation with Hussle. Nicholson said, “Eric was asking Nipsey, ‘Did you tell somebody I snitched?’” The woman then said she took a photo with Hussle, which was likely the last photo he ever took.
Nicholson said Holder went into Master Burger, got food, and told the woman to drive around the block. As she did that, he began to load a black semi-automatic handgun before the woman told him to “put that away, you ain’t going to shoot nothing outside my car.” Nicholson then detailed hearing the shots after pulling into an alley as Holder instructed. Following seeing people running as a result of the gunfire, the woman says. Holder was “power-walking” to her car and yelled at her to drive. Nicholson reportedly drove Holder home to Long Beach after the shooting, then returned to get him and bring him to Los Angeles later that evening. The woman struggled to explain to the court why she did any of that following the shooting. Stay tuned for more updates.
