During a recent interview, Kandi Burruss gave an update on her cousin Melvin Jones, who was shot after getting into an altercation with a co-worker at her Atlanta restaurant Blaze Steak & Seafood earlier this month.

The reality star and music icon told the Ooh Ladies First Panel that Jones is doing better. She explained, “He’s doing fine. He’s getting through it. So since he’s okay, I’m okay. If he wouldn’t have been okay, I wouldn’t have been okay, you know what I mean?”

She continued, “Obviously, he’s uncomfortable. But the bullet didn’t hit anything that won’t heal. He’s at home, he’s healing. He’s fine. I mean, he’s not fine but he’s okay.”


In other news, during another interview, Kandi revealed why she no longer talks to reality TV super producer Carlos King. During an interview with Haus of Aaron, Kandi said, “He is the one who stole my group’s life story and sold it to TV One.”

She continued, saying that Carlos never mentioned it to her and even tried to go to her mom to get information about the group without telling her.

Kandi added, “To go behind my back and to do that — that’s OUR life story — I was like, ‘I can’t f*ck with him ever again.”
