Kandi Burress fiance killed; A.J. Jewell, former flame of 'Real Housewives' star, slain in fight


The former fiance of one of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" was killed in a fight outside his strip club in Georgia, authorities said Saturday.

Kandi Burruss, the newest member of the hit Bravo reality show, posted on her Twitter page about the death and asked for prayers for Ashley (A.J.) Jewell's six children.

"I could never in a million years imagine this happening," posted Burruss, a former member of the R&B group Xscape.

"im just in one of those moods where i dont wanna talk," she posted early this morning.

"i dont wanna b held & told its gonna b ok. i just wanna cry myself 2 sleep, alone," she wrote.

Jewell, who made several appearances with Burruss on the show, suffered massive head injuries during a fight late Friday outside the Body Tap Club in Atlanta, according to police.

Police arrested Fredrick Richardson hours later and charged him with voluntary manslaughter, officials said. Witnesses told Atlanta police Jewell fought with Richardson outside the skin palace.
