Arrest Made In Kandi Burruss' Fiance AJ's Case+Other Details
The Atlanta Police Department has arrested a man named Fredrick Richardson and charged him with the voluntary manslaughter of Kandi Burruss' fiance Ashley Jewell. Ashley was beaten to death late last night outside of the Body Tap gentlemen's club in Atlanta. Kandi's publicist states via the AJC: "Kandi is devastated as she is also mourning the death of her uncle, Ralph Leslie, and is attending his funeral today," TreMedia said in a statement on behalf of the reality star Saturday. "She has no statement to make at this time and asks for privacy. There are no final details on the death of AJ." Kandi posted on Twitter very early this morning: • im just in one of those moods where i dont wanna talk, i dont wanna b held & told its gonna b ok. i just wanna cry myself 2 sleep, alone. • I could never n a million years imagine this happening. please pray for AJ's children. that's who im the most concerned 4. • im bout 2 giv my swollen eyes sum rest now. i just wanted to say thanks 2 every1 for their prayers. i gotta get up & go 2 my uncle's funeral Other reports are giving details of the beating saying it all stemmed from a business deal gone wrong. AJ was allegedly in negotiations to buy the gentlemen's club for $1 million and the deal was supposedly complete on AJ's end earlier this week. The current owner apparently had some issues with the contract, and coincidentally, the owner's husband's "friends" were involved in this fatal fight as well. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kandi and AJ's family and friends at this time.
