Kandi Burress of RHOA Ex-Fiance Killed in Atlanta

My condolences go out to Kandi Burress and the family of her ex-fiance Ashley "AJ" Jewell. AJ was murdered last night at a popular strip club by the name of Body Tap in Atlanta, Ga. Kandi was 1/4 of the platinum selling Xscape and a current cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

According to WSBTV: "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."

Since the report this morning an arrest has been made. "Police said Fredrick Richardson is charged with voluntary manslaughter and currently being held at Grady Detention due to his injuries. Authorities said Richardson will be transported to the Fulton County Jail once he is cleared by medical personnel."

Kandi has commented via her Twitter page about the untimely situation: "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.

Keep Kandi and The Jewell family in your prayers. My condolences go out to this man, son, and father of 6 kids. This senseless violence must stop. When will it end?

It is sad that he was at an entertainment establishment to relax and something got started. Do you think we as a people overreact so much because we feel so powerless (in our minds)? Happy people do not start fights.
