Suspect Arrested in Murder of Real Housewives Kandi Burruss Fiance

Police in Atlanta have arrested a suspect in the brutal beating death of A.J. Jewell, the ex-fiancé of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss. Jewell died Friday night after suffering severe head trauma in a brawl outside of an Atlanta strip club.


Ashley ‘A.J.’ Jewell was briefly engaged to Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kandi Burruss, who still maintains custodial guardianship over two of his six children. The couple broke up and ended their engagement earlier this year.

Atlanta police arrested Fredrick Richardson on Saturday on a charge of voluntary manslaughter. Jewell reportedly died from massive head injuries allegedly caused by Richardson during a fight outside of the Body Tap strip club Friday night.

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

  1. OMG. I am so sorry for Kandi’s loss. I watched the show everyweek and have really gotten to like Kandi. She is a very beautiful, talented woman. My prayers and thoughts are with her and her family.

  2. My prayers go out to AJ’s loved ones and undoubtedly the children and their caregivers, I have experienced such lose of a fiance back in 2000 and have 2 of his children. I empathize with you and sincerely pray you all maintain strength, be blessed!

  3. This is soo sad, what is going to happen to the two kids, that she is keeping for him? will his family come and take them back. Why did she still have them when they broke up? why didnt he take his kids with him when he left/broke up? no way would i leave my kid with an ex, unless he is like most deadbeat days today and dont give a damn, let me stop it isnt right to speak ill of the dead, cause i dont know his siuation but 6 kids total! damnnnnnn..r.i.p. baby brotha..
