Suspect Arrested In Murder of Real ‘Housewives’ Kandi Burruss Ex-fiance Killed In Atlanta
A suspect has been arrested in the death of the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ and former member of R&B music group Xscape Kandi Burruss, 33, former fiance Ashley ‘A.J.’ Jewell who died after sustaining injuries to the head during a fight at a club in Atlanta, GA.
Fredrick Richardson who also sustained injuries from the fight was arrested and charged with voluntary manslaughter after getting into a brawl with A.J. Jewell on Friday night at the Body Tap in Atlanta, GA outside of the strip club which may reportedly be co-owned by Jewell, according to unconfirmed sources.
Jewell who has made appearances on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” which Kandi Burruss stars on, received scrutiny from many onlookers as well as Kandi Burruss’ mother during the show due to Jewell having six children. As reported on HipHopRX.com back in March, Kandi Burruss came to A.J.’s rescue after many blogs and commenters throughout the Internet called him a scrub and made statements that she had to take care of him.
In her radio interview, Kandi stated,”I try not to read too much of it, but I know they were talking about my fiance. Making him look real bad, like heâ€™s a dead beat dad, he ainâ€™t got no job. And itâ€™s not true.”
Reportedly in August, the two called off their wedding and relationship to give each other a break to sort out personal issues, however the two remained friends.
Meanwhile, authorities are being whist on what may have caused the fight between the two as they are continuously interviewing witnesses who were there on the scene.
