“I could never in a million years imagine this happening,” she posted on her Twitter page. “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.”
Police [say] that Fredrick Richardson, an employee of the club, has been arrested and charged with voluntary manslaughter.
Bravo has just released the following statement: “Our thoughts are with Kandi and A.J.’s family during this tragic time.” Meanwhile, a rep for Buruss states that she and Jewell “were engaged to be married. Kandi is devastated as she is also mourning the death of her uncle, Ralph Leslie, and is attending his funeral today. She has no [further] statement to make at this time and asks for privacy.”
