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.

Kandi honey I just feel so

Kandi honey I just feel so sorry for you & AJ's family. People didn't even get to know him that all they did was judge him about his pass situation. When I heard the news & was hurting for you because you seem to be so sweet & u are for sure my favorite on the show.I can't imagine what u & his family are going threw but I will continue to pray for u every night.I didn't know AJ but this still has me in shock like it was my family member. AJ seem to be a very quiet person who keeps to his self. Please keep your head up I promise everything will work out! (RIP AJ)

There must have been a

There must have been a serious dispute for someone to beat you to death with their hands. I feel sorry for Kandi, she seems to be so nice and people know that and they try to take advantage of her like "kim". I didnt feel he was good for her but I most certainly didn't want him to go out of her life this way. Black on Black crime is getting out of control, as with the above comment, true no need for the "KKK" we are doing it to ourselves.

when keeping it real goes wrong.... how could you not imagine that the streets would take him when this happens all the time? goes to show you how much WE as black people and women keep lying to ourselves about reality no matter how obvious the signs are. but yes, it could have been anyone and i hope he rests in peace.

MY CONDOLENCES TO KANDI AND

MY CONDOLENCES TO KANDI AND A.J FAMILY. I TOO JUST BURIED A LOVED ONE FROM THE HANDS OF SOMEONE ELSE (MURDERED). IT IS MUCH HARDER TO COPE WITH RATHER THAN THEM DYING TO AN ILLNESS. WE, AS AFRICAN AMERICANS NEED TO SET ASIDE OUR DIFFERENCE AND UNITE AS ONE BEFORE WE BECOME EXSTINCT. WE ARE DYING IN MASS NUMBERS. WE ARE DYING NOT BY HEALTH ISSUES OR OLD AGE BUT BY THE HANDS OF OUR OWN KIND. LET'S GET IT TOGETHER PEOPLE BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE. SERIOUSLY!

Damn they say it comes in

Damn they say it comes in threes and its true it happened to me, everytime I turned around someone I loved was dead in like 5 months. People leave this woman alone, from what I see on the show she's the TRUTH! BEING ON TWITTER IS THE QUICKEST WAY TO GET PEOPLE TO LEAVE YOU ALONE! HELLO!

Like for all the people

Like for all the people talking about he didn't have a real job. First what does it matter? Like lets be real stop worrying about the next person pay check. I live in Atlanta and stuff in Atlanta gets around quick in the streets. Back in the day he sold drugs but took the money he earn and flipped it into so legit business. Case Closed! Second if she wants to get on Twittler thats her right too. She a grown woman and thats how she deal with her emotions right now so be it. Stop sitting in front of ya'll computer ready to judge these damn celebrity. I mean damn that shit is sad people always knocking each other down to make them self look good. Kills me. Just say Rest In Peace and move on with your life.

Oh yeah and one more thing, I

Oh yeah and one more thing, I don't understand where people are getting that he might have been a thug. He did not act like one on the show, nor does this situation make him out to be one. It sounds like they tried to rip him off and when you talking about millions you don't have to be a thug to throw down over that. The only thing I see is that they made a business meeting too personal and maybe should have had legit lawyers involved if they were talking about a million bucks. But again I liked AJ on the show and this is really sad.

By the way about Kandis

By the way about Kandis Twitts, Kandi just seems like a strong person period. I mean look at that photo shoot she did, I thought that was insensitive too but after watching her character, she just seems to be a really strong person who may be able to hold her self up more than the average person in these type of situations. You don't know what she's been through and I would not be surprised if she makes the reunion show and not for attention, but because she just knows how to hold her head up when it really should be down. So y'all need to chill out on her.

AJ seemed like a nice guy on

AJ seemed like a nice guy on the show and this is really sad. What happen to just taking people to court over business deals? Why must you fight, now the club owners husband will be in jail FOREVER. Two life's taken over something so senseless and meaningless. Not to mention the club will probably be shut down, so now everybody loses. I really hope they did not take AJ's money and then try to dog him out. I mean he really seemed like a nice guy and I was looking for something but he always stayed positive and supportive no matter what on the show.

I'm so sorry about your loss

I'm so sorry about your loss his family and kids will definately be in my prayers....R.I.P. AJ

cuteBIGgul: Now this

cuteBIGgul: Now this confirms all the whispers about him not having a real job and being into illegal (shady)business. Not to sound cold, but I know those 4 baby mama’s mad as hell AJ didn’t marry Kandi before he died so she’d b taking care of them financially. I always felt them 4 chix were rootn for the wedding more than any1. I no I would be if Kandi was MY BABYDADDY fiance. Kandi’s brother died, her uncle , her man, she must feel like death follows her. I think Riley is adorable, and I hope for HER sake Kandi’s keeping it 2gether. But you do sound cold AND kinda ignorant. Where in the story does it say he did anything illegal? And Who da hell cares about what his baby mamas was rootin for or what you would be rootin for if he was yo baby daddy?????? The whole point of this all is that the man is dead and is leaving behind several loved ones. Grow up and stopped looking for some dumb ass gossip behind the story. Its a shame that even in tragedy some people will find a way to only worry about rumors and dumb shit.

I hope Bravo TV won't try and

I hope Bravo TV won't try and exploit this situation for ratings on the next season. But, I think this is all about jealousy. Folks are jealous because he wass on a popular show with a popular celebrity as his lady. Folks will start a war over the simplest things to get at you when they have an ax to grind. Most times, you didn't even know it was like that but folks can harbor ill will towards you and ride shot gun with you ride or die-stab you in the back with the same knife they cut you a piece of cake with. Be smart people. Most of all be safe. We don't need anymore of this foolishness. Just walk away from an argument.Being right is not worth your life.

rated_X_32: Are you fuckin

rated_X_32: Are you fuckin serious??? You think her mother’s glad that her daughter’s ex fiance lost his life??? Mind you two of AJ’s chilren live with Kandi…he’s like family. Just because she didn’t want her daughter with him doesn’t mean she wanted him dead, get it together boo. Right!!! Despite her mom opposing the marriage, do you think she wants to see her child in this type of pain? No offense but that was a real ignorant comment. And to whoever commented about her being on twitter...SO WHAT!! If she had done a public interview with one of the news stations you would have been tuned in for her statement so how is twitter any different? Its her way of coping and should not be judged.

Joja86: Wish people would

Joja86: Wish people would stop coming at Twitter….especially those who know NOTHING about it. Geez if it wasn’t for Twitter, half the you see now, you couldn’t comment on. People act like she was tweeting min by min….she left 2 tweets explaining her state AND hasn’t been on since! Would you rather her text/call back every person hitting her up? It takes 2 seconds to tweet from your phone (which is probably right by her side because of all of this). Everyone including celebs were sending their wishes,etc on there and she was able to address them. Publicist comments aren’t enough for some. Exactly, people should think before they make dumb comments.
