Kandi Issues Official Statement

Posted by Media Outrage on October 5, 2009


Kandi Burruss of Real Housewives of Atlanta has finally issued a statement about the tragic and senseless murder of her ex-fiance, AJ.

“I am devastated by the loss of AJ.  His death comes on the heels of the death of my beloved Uncle Ralph and with both of them gone, my heart is heavy with grief.  I had spoken to AJ two hours before I got the call that he was in the hospital.  Never in a thousand years did I think it was going to be the last time I heard his voice.  He was taken way too soon.  There are so many things that I should have said to him, wanted to say to him…  But now it’s too late. 

I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of my family and friends — and that means my twitter and facebook friends as well — for the beautiful words of encouragement, prayers, and the sweet condolences.  I make it through these difficult days because of you.  I know this is cliché, but I urge everyone to treat each day as if it’s your last and tell that special someone you love them today.  Don’t wait.  It may be too late. 

Please pray for his children, his family and Riley – they too are grieving the loss of an incredible man, son, brother and father.  I wish you all had gotten to know the AJ we all knew and loved.”

Mediaoutrage–  Our prayers go out to Kandi and AJ’s friends and family.

    @ DT I agree 100%… a life taken over nothing, because no matter what happened he didn’t deserve to be killed.
    My prayers for all that knew and loved him.

    He really didn’t deserve to be killed. Yeah I feel sorry for Kandi but I feel even more sorry for the 6 kids and the 4 baby mammas that he left behind.

    @lowridaz…from what the news said, the young man who did this got charges with voluntary manslaughter. That’s only about 5 to 8 years here in Georgia.

    OK, WOOOOOW! this is a lot to take in at once. Never watched show but from what i read, this is the man (AJ) with 6 kids from 4 different woman and some form of adoption going on- which everyone suggested that she (Kandi) should leave him.

    Now on to ‘fight’

    Fredrick Richardson also was injured as the two exchanged blows outside the strip bar, the Body Tap Club, Friday night. Richardson was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital where he will remain until doctors say he can be discharged. Then Richardson will be taken to the Fulton County Jail, according to police spokesman Officer James Polite. The hospital would not release Richardson’s condition, but police said he is conscious and alert.

    So this is not a ‘murder’ attempt, merely a confrontation that escalated that now leaves one man in hospital and other dead, at most this is manslaughter since there was ‘no intent’. I won’t even go into ‘blame/victim’ game because a life was lost and others will be impacted GREATLY (family, friends, even perpetrator of crime).

    This is cleary a case of ‘don’t take what doesn’t belong to you’ and ‘ never let your temper get the best of you’.

    Truly Tragic! RIP and Condolences to the family & friends.

    @Ms. Behave…you mean to tell me that you don’t watch that show? It’s the most entertaining show on television right now.

    This is just too sad & unbelievable at that….never watched The Housewives show but it’s crazy. What is the world coming to?

    Condolences once again to the families.

    @ Ms_Behave, I read the exact same article somewhere and at the beginning of it it states that ole dude was charged with voluntary manslaughter.

    Just a terrible tragedy. I wonder how Kandi’s mom is feeling now. I wonder if she’s secretly glad!! She was so out of line in how she treated him on the show.

    Even if my Mom DID hate my bf, she wouldn’t be as juvenile as Kandi’s mom was with it.

  16. Unkle Death said

    My condolences to both families.

    I really shouldn’t give a shit because I don’t really watch TV anymore, but I had a cousin who was shot and killed 2 weeks after I–by the skin of my teeth–graduated from high school in 2005. She was dead before she hit the ground. Fucked my world up!

    That said, my condolences to both families.

  17. Atlanta said

    @mjfan4life…bring a nicca home with 6 kids a 4 baby moms and see how juvenile your mom acts. You can’t blame that woman because she wanted better for her ONLY daughter.

  18. I still can’t think of anything but Damn.
