 UPDATE: by: Randi M.

Fredrick Richardson has been charged with voluntary manslaughter for the death of AJ. Richardson was in the hospital from injuries from the fight when he was charged.  Kandi Burruss updated her twitter this morning saying:

“im just in one of those moods where i dont wanna talk, i dont wanna b held & told its gonna b ok. i just wanna cry myself 2 sleep, alone.”
“I could never n a million years imagine this happening. please pray for AJ’s children. that’s who im the most concerned 4.”


Our condolences go out to Kandi, AJ’s children, and their family.



  1. This is so tragic. His family, children, and Kandi are in my prayers. This violence has to stop. God bless.

  2. This year has been possibly the craziest and somber year ever! My heart truly goes out to his family and Kandi. He had six kids he left behind who now have to grow up without a father.
