Kandi Burruss might just have been taught how to whore from day one!
Rumors are the 36-year-old singer is just as promiscuous as her gambling-addicted mother, Joyce Jones. Those rumors are led to Kandi eventually having a reputation as the industry whore. But, despite her bad wrap; sources say Kandi was smart with her money.
The man who fathered Kandi Buuruss’s 10-year-old daughter Russell “Block” Spencer, is said to have left her to fend with their child for herself.

La Tocha Scott has been quoted as saying, “Kandi Burruss is a hoe, she slept with Jermaine Dupri and his daddy.” Kandi Burruss spoke to Angela Yee about her beef with group member LaTocha Scott after she went on air to tell the world Kandi slept with Jermaine Dupri. From that moment forward Kandi felt that LaTocha had sabotaged the group and they would never reunite again. Kandi felt La Tocha Scott was wrong to go on the air and attempt to air her dirty laundry when Kandi says those are lies and she would never go back to the group. However, Kandi did admit to sleeping with Jermaine Dupri, but she says she wasn’t looking for anything out of the hookup, she was just curious
Kandi has had several men in her life and it seems as though every season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta she has a new man. Her previous relationship with Ashley Jewell, her onetime fiancé, died from an injury sustained during a brawl in the parking lot of an Atlanta strip club. “It appears he was involved in an altercation in the parking lot and he received a severe blow to the head,” Atlanta Police Lt. Keith Meadows told WSB TV 2. AJ, who apparently worked at the club, was taken to a hospital where he later died. Atlanta homicide detectives arrested a suspect on Saturday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Fredrick Richardson, who was also hospitalized for injuries from the fight, was charged with voluntary manslaughter and will be jailed upon his release from Grady Memorial Hospital. AJ, appeared regularly on the hit reality show, often clashing with Kandi’s mother, who disapproved of her daughter’s relationship.
Now Kandi has a new love in her life; Todd Tucker; he is an American production manager and line producer who has a net worth of $200 thousand dollars. Based in Atlanta, Todd has been working in the film and television industry for years, primarily as a production manager for documentaries and television program. Todd is a permanent fixture in Kandi’s life now, whether Mama Joyce likes it or not. The pair met a few years ago, and got engaged about a year ago despite Mama Joyce’s disapproval. Kandi has had her fair share of sadness (her former fiancé A.J. Jewell was shot to death in 2009), but once she found Todd all seemed right in the world. But how exactly did these two lovebirds meet? During Season 4 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi and her co-stars headed to the country for their annual trip to South Africa. At the time, Todd was working as a production manager for the company that produces RHoA, and he actually caught Phaedra Parks’ eye first. According to one insider, Kandi Burruss is a home wrecker who stole, Todd away his former girlfriend Mela by buying him material things. Phaedra Parks cast member of RHOA actually introduced Kandi to Todd and the relationship seemed to blossom. She purchased a home and Todd has moved in, her daughter Riley had a problem with him moving so fast. Mama Joyce believes he is an opportunist and she has also heard rumors about Todd sleeping with Kandi’s bestfriend Carmen who is also her personal assistant.
Kandi’s award-winning intimate luxury line, Bedroom Kandi, has expanded into an in-home network while her T.A.G.S boutique continues to expand across the country and is now featuring its own exclusive clothing line. Forever expanding her empire, this season Kandi is focused on producing a musical, loosely based on her life with Todd titled, “A Mother’s Love.” Despite her hectic schedule, Kandi also manages to find time in giving back and in 2013 she founded her own foundation, Kandi Cares.
Kandi doesn’t like being known as the industry whore, however rher past seemd to dictates these rumors, however there is always three sides to every story. She can’t understand why people in the industry spread rumors about her taking care of men and jumping from one relationship to another. Her life is an open book whether she agrees with it or not. On RHOA Kandi appears to be a trouble maker and she seems as though she is above everyone else. She doesn’t like it when Marlo and Nene talk about the rumors spreading in Atlanta but she throws some much shade on those women, they often have a comeback ready for her. If u can dish it, you have to be able to take it.
Kandi’s net worth is $35 million dollars and she gets pay $450,000 per season for the RHOA. That is a whole lot of money and any man would want her, she has brains, beauty and booty; lets not forget money.
