Before they were reality stars of their own shows Tomika “Tiny” Cottle and Kandi Burress were both members of the 90s hit group Xscape, and they are still very close. Tiny released a statement following the devastating news of the murder of Real Housewives of Atlanta star A.J. Jewell, Kandi’s ex-fiance who was killed in front of a Atlanta strip club today.
“I would like to send my deepest condolesences to the family of Ashley AJ Jewell and my dear friend and former bandmate Kandi,” Tiny shared in her statement. “AJ was a very sweet person who has been a friend for quite some time and had a lot of positive things taking place in his life for it all to be taken away from him so quickly.He will be missed,my family and I will continue to keep his family and most of all his children in our prayers. I am praying for my friend Kandi that God gives her the strength to endure. She is a very strong person and I know god will see her through.”
