Rumor has it that Kandi’s fiance sells dope and has other baby mama drama he does not take care of. Kandi has denounced those rumors insisting her fiance does his part:
Singer/songwriter and now ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Kandi Burruss has come forward to defend her fiance after hearing rumors that implied he was a deadbeat dad and drug dealer! Burruss, known widely as an ASCAP award winning songwriter and former member of R&B group Xscape, says “He’s not a deadbeat dad. His kids come over to our house and hang out all the time.” Burruss, who according to Sister2Sister Magazine, beat out Angie Stone and New Edition singer Ralph Tresvant’s ex-wife for a spot on the second season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” became the subject of several well circulated emails at popular blogs after it was revealed that she would replace Deshawn Snow. Sources claiming to be close to acquaintances of A.J. Jewell, Kandi’s fiance, went as far as calling the alleged Atlanta based father of six, who has some type of “involvement in the music business,” a deadbeat dad and a drug dealer who uses “fake pay stubs” to avoid paying child support. According to Kandi everything has been on the “up and up” since they’ve been together and she doesn’t “know whatever went on in his past”. In fact, Kandi says his baby mothers are respectful and “they never seem to have a problem”.
Kandi had to know before signing on that they would dig up dirt on anyone close to her. Potential drug dealer/deadbeat dad? And, you still signed onto the show? We will see…
