Pictured on the left is the woman who sources say Kandi Burruss’ ex-fiance Ashley “AJ” Jewell lost his life fighting another man for.
Her name is Veronica M. Jones and she is co-owner of The Body Tap (the club’s liquor license is in her name). Club employee
Fredrick Richardson, is (allegedly) the man who police say struck AJ over the head with a liquor bottle during a brawl on Friday night inside the club.
Earlier, I wrote that Richardson was married to Jones. This was incorrect. Another man known as “Cornbread” is Jones’ ex-husband, who sources say was also involved in the fight at the club.
Sources say the fight started inside the club and spilled out into the parking lot. Jewell sustained head injuries from blunt force trauma to the brain. He was pronounced dead at Piedmont hospital.
Sources also say Veronica and AJ were involved in a steamy sexual relationship that didn’t sit well with “Cornbread.”
AJ, a former drug dealer who promoted celebrity events at the club, either bought into the strip club or was in negotiations to buy a percentage of the club. Veronica is pictured with DJ X-Rated, center, (the club’s DJ) and one of the club’s talent.
