All of us at Bravotv.com were deeply saddened to learn of the tragic death of Ashley "AJ" Jewell, featured on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Below is a statement from TreMedia on behalf of Real Housewife Kandi Burruss:
"As has been reported, Ashley Jewell, 34, was killed in Atlanta last night. AJ, as he is known to many, and Grammy award winning songwriter, Kandi Burruss of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and formerly of platinum recording group Xscape, were engaged to be married. Kandi is devastated as she is also mourning the death of her uncle, Ralph Leslie, and is attending his funeral today. She has no statement to make at this time and asks for privacy. There are no final details on the death of AJ."
Kandi has also reached out to fans on her Twitter page: "I could never in a million years imagine this happening," she posted. "Please pray for AJ's children. That's who I'm the most concerned for. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for their prayers."
Our thoughts are with Kandi and AJ's family during this difficult time.

I am so sorry for yourloss. The children and you will be in my thoughts and prayers. I recently went to a funeral for my best friend (47) who passed away from cancer.
Please be kind and thoughtful of everyone on earth, it may be the last thing you do. I only knew of AJ thru the show, but i could tell that is what he did. Kind thoughtful young man who gave of hisself.
God wanted that beautiful young man (along with my beautiful young friend)home with him.
God bless you Kandi and all of your family at this time.

i watch the show all the time. i even record it and then go and watch it later. i was just watching the episode of u and ur mom and aj all goin to counseling and i just cant believe that he is gone. i had this big lump in my throat the whole time. i love all you guys! i am so saddened by this. u r very different than all the other girls. you are a nice and sweet person. i pray for you and all of his children. i know that you will pull through. you are a strong willed person. just know that you guys are loved by many!!!! in my prayers....
Kandi, I relate to you soooo much on the show, and when I heard Rickey Smiley say that AJ passed away, my heart stopped. I wanted to pick up the phone and call you to share my heart felt pain with you. But then I had to realize that I don't know you personally (SMILE). Kandi, I lost someone I considered to be the love of my life 13 years ago, and all that I can say is GOD will carry you through it. Just let go and let GOD do his thing... you know he can do it, so let him do so. You will see how much better you will feel. May GOD be with you, AJ's babies, and your baby as well. Hopefully, your mom WILL be there to support you, through all of this, GOD knows she should. May GOD BLESS you :)
Having never blog before, I find I need to tell you how very sorry I am for your lost. AJ seemed to be the love of your life, and that's just how he will stay in your heart. He supported you with your dreams, so you keep going and may time heal you pain.

I didn't want to believe this; I was hoping I misread. AJ had the face of an angel and was a good father. He wll be missed and he is a live in spirit...watching over all the people he loves. Speak to God to speak to AJ.

Kandi, I'm so sorry for your lost at this time, you have been strong through all obstacles that have come your way recently, regardless of what anyone has said or have to say about your relationship with A.J. I felt that A.J. was the man for you he was good for your soul, he was a positive role for your daughter, and he made you feel special that's all that mattered. I also feel in my heart that your mom would have come around in time, you are her baby, and see only wants the best for you and her grandbaby, best interest was at heart trust that, god is with you and your family, you are a beautiful, strong, positive woman and will get through this keep your head up girl, god will see you through.
im so sorry for your lost and i wish you good and i know how you feel and i am a big fan don't know what else too say
To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Remember this passage of scripture and know that AJ is in a much better place than you and I are right now. It is hard to deal with now, but just know that God does not do ANTHING for NOTHING and that it is all in his plans. Be blessed and may God keep you and your family is my prayer.
I am soooo sorry for your lost. My thoughts and prayers got out to you and your family and AJ's children. May God continue to bless and keep you safe in his arms. I know the show is the last thing on your mine right now, but I would like to say, you have been a blessing to see. You have brought so much to your show and have it made worth watching.I truly love your honesty and loving nature for others. Be Blessed Sistah and stay strong, you are not alone.
Kandi, I have admired your spirit and compassion thoughout this season. I am truly sorry for the passing of AJ and your Uncle. I respect you, particularly since I have read that you will raise AJ's twins. May God continue to bless you and your extended family.
I am so sorry for your lost. Iknow you can get through with the losing of fiance.All you have to do is pray that you get through with it.R.I.P AJ!!!!!!!!We're gone to miss you.
OH KANDI, I WISH THAT I DIDN'T HAVE TO MEET YOU ON SUCH A SAD OCCATION I KNOW THAT THIS WILL BE A TOUGH ROAD TO GO DOWN BUT GOD WILL SEE YOU THROUGH,AND DON'T BE DISCOURAGED ABOUT THE WAY THAT GOD RUNS THINGS IN OUR LIFE HOW YOU JUST LOST YOUR UNCLE,NOW THE LOVE OF YOU LIFE PLEASE REMEBER YOU ARE GOD'S CHILD FIRST THEN HE GAVE YOU TO YOUR MOM AND TRUST AND BELIEVE THAT HE WILL NOT GIVE YOU ANYMORE THAN YOU CAN BARE,SO BABY BE STRONG FOR YOUR SELF,YOUR BABY AND A.J'S CHILDREN AS WELL MAY YOUR MUSIC BE A GREAT SUCCESS AND PLEASE DON'T CHANGE YOUR ALBUM LEAVE IT JUST AS YOU PLANNED IT BECAUSE EVERYTHING IN OUR LIFE HAPPENS FOR A REASON YOU ARE SINGING ABOUT YOUR LOVE AND YOR RELATIONSHIP AND LET THAT BE,YOU SAID YOU BELONG AT THE TOP WHEN YOU WERE ON THAT BUILDING AND THAT'S WHERE YOU WILL BE MAY GOD BLESS YOU IN YOUR TIME OF BEREAVEMENT&YOU ARE IN MY PRAYER'S
I'm So Sorry Kandi, I now that this is very devistating to have to say to yourself that I have lost my Husband before God committed you all to say your vowels to each other,but I want to say that the road ahead will get better as time goes on and God will not give you more than you can bare,I just want to say to you your baby and his chilren that god will see you all through this tough time in your life and baby remember your a strong black Woman that comes from a family with a long line of them and you have to be strong for you baby and your future,we dont know why God makes the decisions that he makes and why he alows them to go his way but I can truly say that he is never wrong,even though we might not agree with them he is always RIGHT! So baby I am praying for you and your baby and A.J's children and I know that GOD will see you through, so baby keep your head up because what did you say at the top is where you belong and let god show you the way,also hunny continue to be inspired by your Music and let your album be what it is that you wrote,you wrote it for a reason and let it all just flow out and continue to be inspired by things that GOD put in your life and also in you path you are in my prayer's and may GOD be with you!

Kandi, I don't blog or follow web pages, but I have followed your show. Your personality is such that I had to come to this website to find out what happened... I am so terribly sorry that you have to endure this loss among several others these past few months.
You shine with such a light that no one can hold a candle to you. You will mourn, you will not find a reason for this tragedy. What will get you through are friends and family. Communicate your pain, don't close yourself off and TIME will heal your wounds. My thoughts are with you.
Kandi, I just found out about the tragic news and I am completely saddened by the passing of AJ. If you didn't know it,the love that you shared for one another was truly genuine and real on TV.I saw how hard you fought for the love the you had for him and I am truly,truly sorry for what has transpired. I don't know you personally, but please continue being the sweet, loving person that you are and don't let this tragedy transform you into someone that you are not. My prayers are with you and his family. Please stay strong. I am very sorry, keep your head up and fly above.....
WOW, Im in shock my heart hearts....I grew with Kandi in Escape Days and loved her songs,with other artist singing them... I was soooo happy to see you on Housewives Atlanta and too see you were coming out again singing and engaged and felt connected to you....when I heard about AJ my world froze and all I am going through as a single mom stopped and my entire heart and soul went out to the children and Kandi...God never gives us more then we can bear seems unreal at these times...stand strong and know Im there with you in prayer daily. Your life gives me strength to keep going.
i am so sorry for your loss but hold your head high trust god he loves you give your life and he will bring you through.
My heart goes out to you and AJ's family. I started and have continued to pray for you all since I heard the news. I pray that God will help you through these difficult experiences. Stay strong and God Bless.

Kandi, I am so sorry for your loss. I know that you will find the strength to get through this. My family has experienced so much loss in the last 4 years, my son, 2 uncles, my brother and aunt have died since 2005, our house burnt to the ground and we lost everything,yet I try to see the good that came out of everything we lost. I hated when people said this to me during the tragidies, but yet I look back now and see what they meant. And this too shall pass. My thoughts and love are with you and your family.
I can't stop crying. I was about to give up on Atlanta Housewives until they got you. I've totally enjoyed the show since you are now on it and wait for your scenes to come on. I just watched the last episode. I'm totally shocked and saddened. I love God and I no he has his plans but I cant wait to ask him, "WHY?" For you and everyone else who are so loving and good people have to have such tragic events in their lives. I'm 38 and totally admire you and hope my daughter turns out as wonderful as you. Thinking of you, Laurie Sullivan, Missouri
Kandi my prayers are with you an your family God bless you much love stacie an family we just loss my mother.
Kandi, I wish I had the words to make you feel better but I know that there are no words to ease the pain. just remember that your daughter will be hurting as well, she was very close to him also and you will have to be strong for her because she will be hurting. AJ was good to her and I'm sure in her mind he was a father figure. so Kandi I am so sorry for your loss and my prayers are with your family and his children
I am so sorry for your loss. I've watched the show since day one. I've come to see you as a real lady, and a sincere God loving woman. I will continue to keep you and AJ's family in my prayers. I believe in my heart that you are a very strong, and blessed woman. I only wish I had the opportunity to actually meet you in person. I would love to meet you. I live in East TN. and everyone here watches the show. We all love you. Please know that millions of fans are thinking of you. I hope you find peace, and strenght to carry on. Which I believe you will. God Bless you, and AJ's family. (Devoted fan Forever) Stay Strong. With all my love, Kim
My prayers go out to you and your family. Just keep God first and know that everything will be alright. Love ya girl.
Kandi, I am so very sorry for your losses....I always tape the shows, and at the end of the episode I seen the In Loving memory of Aj, and my heart dropped, so saddened for you and his children. You and his Family will be in my thoughts and prayers....And may god always be with you....God doesn't give you more then you can handle..Just keep yourself busy, keep doing what you love...Aj would want that!!!
Take Care Trish
