YBF EXCLUSIVE: Kandi Burruss Dishes On Her Mom's Beef With Her Fiance

​ ​ ​ ​

kandi burruss and a.j.

TheYBF.com spoke with the newest "ATL Housewife" Kandi Burruss about the upcoming season.  And you already know we had to ask about her alleged deadbeat daddy fiance Ashley Jewell.  We broke the exclusive right here back in March that her fiance had 6 kids and was well known around the ATL to not handle his daddy business.  So we asked Ms. Kandi about it and the rumor that her own mother is extra upset about the engagement.  And she kept it all the way real with us:
Yes it’s true. My fiancé does have 6 children. And that in itself is a big problem with my mother. I didn’t know going into the relationship exactly how many kids he had.  Or his situation with them.  So there was some deceit. She’s not happy at all.  They fought hard before taping the show and during the show.  Then after the show stopped taping she went in even harder. It’s a constant battle.
We also asked Kandi why people are calling her current fiancé a dead beat dad.  She tells us:
That I don’t know. Since we’ve been in a relationship, his kids come over A LOT. His twin daughters even live with us now.  But before we were together, I can’t say how he was as a dad since I don’t know. But as for now, he’s great with his kids.
I wonder if these two will actually make it to the alter.  But from the looks of it, moms aint having it.  Stay tuned for our full interview with Kandi and Lisa Wu-Hartwell posting today....

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

I don't normally comment

I don't normally comment (longtime lurker), but this right here is plain foolishness. If a person can't take care of their own children (financially AND emotionally), you should want nothing to do with them. Point blank. She reeks of pure desperation! Every single man out there can sense this trait in a woman and they always find a way to exploit it. SMH

Doesn't get along with your family; 6 kids by more than one woman to whom he was not married; Babymama drama/alleged non-support; Not cute at ALL; Grown and not financially secure at ALL; Are things really this BAD in Atlanta ladies?

I'm so happy that I have

I'm so happy that I have always listened to my mom. But I would never be stupid to the point where I'm going to marry a man with six kids. But girl he looks sorry anyway take your mother's advice and leave his sorry ass alone.

binky: I AGREE with D’s

binky: I AGREE with D’s comment 150%!!! Come on, he has 6 kids and not by the same woman? That speaks volumes of his past relationships. How do you NOT know how many children he has? Sorry, I just can’t see how that doesn’t come up when you plan to marry someone. Girl, listen to your mother and move on or get a vibrator to help ease you though the nights while you play your Xscape albums. There is nothing sadder than a woman settling for less than what she deserves. Ladies, please stop with the attitude of just trying to get “A Man” and find “The Man” for you while still running your life. I don’t know him personally but he just came off as fishy and wrong because all of a SUDDEN he is a good father when your around, seems suspect to me…SMH DEAD @ Vibrator and Xscape album!!! lmao

I wish the best for Kandi and

I wish the best for Kandi and her fiance. Sometimes, even though a relationship starts out with deceit, can work. No, it's not the correct way to start but if the person geniunely changes his/her heart and prays to God to become a changed man or woman, they will be blessed. With God's help his/her can become better than some of the people that are claiming to be good people right now! The power of prayer works.

d: Another sister who is successful in her own right, settling. Please just raise the expectation bar a little bit. Really. We have to learn to be and be happy, expand who we will date (as in interracially) or wait for the right one. Come on, you started out with deceit so where will you finish? And 6 kids yet you didn’t take the time to find out what type of father he was before you met him. I’d say that’s important, kind of like anything else you should know. “Oh, I don’t know if he slept with men before me but he’s with me now”. Huh? That example may be extreme but you get it. Just….do….better. [b]AMEN!!![/b] I'm sincerely tired of hearing about black women falling for this foolishness. this negro was not taking care of his brood before he got with you, now "miraculously", he's a "good father"? hell yeah he is, he has YOUR MONEY to spend on his kids idiot! *smh* i give up.

WOW @ 6 kids, I know child support gets all their money. I don't belive her, I think she knew all about his kids when they got together. He has 6 kids, he ain't cute, and his name is Ashley...FAIL.

Yeah the kids come over a lot now because its on your dime and your time. Let this deadbeat go and set out to find a good man even if it takes forever.

Why would she want to marry a

Why would she want to marry a man with 6 kids??? Are all 6 kids by the same woman??? We all know the answer is no. Stories of being a dead beat dad don't just come out of nowhere so there must be a kernel of truth to them. He looks shifty and she's crazy for being involved with him. 6 kids, multiple baby mamas, no thank you!

Precious P: To be honest, I

Precious P: To be honest, I would not be shocked if she didn’t know how many kids he has because a lot of women forget to ask the IMPORTANT questions when they become desperate. You only ask the questions that you care to know the answers to. Six children?! By the time she bothered to ask she was already sprung and overlooked it. However for myself, all that would show me is that your irresponsible and never learned that condoms are not for show, they are for use! I was saying to myself "Why would Kandi be desperate?" but then i remembered that she lives in Atlanta! So i guess if you're lucky enough to find a straight man in Atlanta - then you have to be willing to put up with some BS.

Seeing your children and

Seeing your children and supporting them are two different things. Some men want to spend time with their kids without having to spend the money to support them. A couple trips to the chucky cheese or six flags does not equal years worth of diaper, daycare, clothing, food etc. etc. If it is true I feel bad for Kandi but even worse for those children

LSU GYRL~sensitive thugs you all need hugs...: Great List but this is mine:Do you believe in God?When was the last time you went to church?How do you and your MOM get along?What’s your credit score?How much do you have saved?Do you have a 401K or some type of retirement plan set in place?Do you have kids? If so, how many and how many baby mothers?What is your relationship like with their mothers? Of course not all of these questions should be asked on the first date but definitely before you fall in love because women make DUMB decisions when their heart is involved! And don't forget the DICK!! LOL LOL

Hello: I can tell already

Hello: I can tell already that she is a damn liar. lol I hope she knew before she layed down with him. This sad and pitiful. Ladies a few dating questions:1. Do you love God?2. When is the last time you went to church?3. Do you have a job?4. How many kids?5. If so, how many?Tip, if you does not love God he can not love me. Sorry, I truly believe if a man does not know how to relate to God he can not relate to me. My friend married a man and didn’t know his religion. She is paying for it dearly. A quick lesson, at least get to know a man before you sleep with him or have any babies!! God really want us to married. I don’t think that is too much to ask, at if you are going to sin get to know the man first. lol Great List but this is mine: Do you believe in God? When was the last time you went to church? How do you and your MOM get along? What's your credit score? How much do you have saved? Do you have a 401K or some type of retirement plan set in place? Do you have kids?

Like how do you date someone

Like how do you date someone and not know pretty much anything about him? I mean, you want to know everything inside and out before agreeing to marry him. Instead, you admit that there was deceit, but you still agree to get married to this bum? Then on top of that, your mom's doesn't approve of him? Sounds like a bad situation all the way around....

Kandi seems sensible enough

Kandi seems sensible enough in this interview. Guess actions speak better than words because WTF would want a man with 6 KIDS who is said to not pay child support?? What he does to one woman he'll dop to you. and although people change, they should make those changes long before you hit the scene or it becomes to me like straight Fronting!! SMH Kandi do better!!!

He looks like an asshole.

He looks like an asshole. Seriously....all you have to do is look at that man. Sometimes I don't know where our minds are...really. Then the woman wants to be surprised when he pulls the same card with you. Only...since they're getting married, he will request alimony when it's all said and done. *kiss teeth*

They come over, he’s “great” with his kids, but are they also taken care of financially (minus the 2 that live with u all)? Just from the fact of not knowing how many kids he has…suspect…no one I would be running to the alter with…Momma disapproving = disaster. Perhaps she should call Usher.. 100% cosign. This nigga was a liar from jump. And what makes it worse is that he's lying about his blessings=his children. Son of a bitch would've been left by the roadside once I woulda found out.

Deceit is not a good look and that would have been my red flag. Wow I thought she would bring something positive to the show,I see that it was the opposite to raise the ratings. So sad I agree with the other poster "stop settling for anything/drama" Please set some standards for yourself!
