kandi burruss + fiancé aj jewell’s death = stop the violence

October 3, 2009


Kandi Burruss, the newest cast member of the hit reality show, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” is coping with the tragic death of her fiancé, Ashley “A.J.” Jewell, who appeared regularly on the show.

Burruss’ publicist, Lisa Nelson, confirmed to reporter Brian Johnson that the incident has left the Atlanta “housewife” stunned and speechless. Burruss posted a message on her Twitter page Saturday expressing how the incident has left her devasated.

“I could never in a million years imagine this happening. Please pray for A.J.’s children … that’s who i’m the most concerned for. I’m about to give my swollen eyes some rest now. I just wanted to say thanks two everyone for their prayers,” said Burruss.

Nelson, who represented Burruss during the taping of the show, said the family is asking for privacy during this very difficult time.

Burruss, an award-winning singer-songwriter and former member of the ’90s R&B group Xscape, has had numerous disagreements with her mother on the show regarding her relationship with Jewell.

Atlanta police told Channel 2 Action News that Jewell received a severe head injury during a fight at The Body Tap Club in the 1200 block of Marietta Boulevard in Atlanta.

“It appears he was involved in an altercation in the parking lot and he received a severe blow to the head,” said Atlanta Police Lt. Keith Meadows.

Meadows said Jewell was taken to Piedmont Hospital where he later died.

Police said they have not determined a motive for the brawl, but the investigation is still under way.

“We have developed a person of interest and we’ve made contact with him to question him about the incident,” said Meadows.

    I personally is heartfelt for Kandi. I feel she had finally found the happiness & security every woman wants from her man. But the time they had was shortened due to ignorance. May God give you strength.
