Father Of Kandi Burruss’ Daughter Riley Burruss Says Kandi Was His “Side Chick” In The 90s

Kandi Burruss has always been pretty open about her life struggles on Real Housewives of Atlanta. We have seen the high and the lows from her. And one of the biggest lows has been the difficult relationship between her daughter Riley Burruss and her dad, Russell “Block” Spencer. In the beginning, we didn’t hear much about him at all. Likely because he wasn’t even in contact with Riley and had no part of her life. In one especially heartbreaking scene years ago, Riley admitted she didn’t even want to get to know him because they were fine without him.

And they continued to be fine. Kandi ultimately found love and stability with now husband, Todd Tucker. The family seemed to blend together nicely, even with a few bumps. Regardless, the pull of knowing your biological family can be strong. At one point, Riley met up with Block for a tense reunion, but he quickly dropped off again. I guess Block is still bitter how it turned out. He then made it seem like he was set up with that meeting. He stated, “You know I’m tricked to be on that TV show.” Ok, so you’re fully admitting you’re not that smart then. Got it.

Now Block continues to trash Kandi for apparently no reason at all. As reported by Radar Online, the man who allegedly never paid child support for Riley, went off. When asked about Kandi, he inexplicably said,“I’m all the way street. We going to do what we do.” Ok, then.

Block continued on, saying that Kandi was his “side chick” when they got together in the 90s. He said they were doing “sideline sh–” while he had a family at home. He stated, “I wasn’t going to leave home. And that’s where the turbulence came in.” Block claimed that Kandi became jealous and would repeatedly call his family’s house. Furthermore, Block said that Kandi knew about his family. Said Block, “Absolutely, she knew about the whole family.” Kandi denies this.

According to Block, Kandi thought she could do whatever because she was famous and wanted to “snatch” him up. He alleged in a previous interview, “When I was dealing with Kandi, I already had a family. So then I had a daughter inside of that. Then when you go behind my back and call my girl and tell her you pregnant, you gotta handle that beef yourself. My girl at home said b—- f— you, you ain’t coming here.”

Sir. You just admitted you were cheating with a family at home. Kandi was at the height of her career in the 90s. I don’t believe a word of what this man says. Sounds like he’s bitter and bothered, all these years later.

Maybe because Kandi and Riley finally got fed up and dragged his butt to court for all the child support he owed. During the RHOA season 13 reunion, Kandi revealed, “They basically say he got to pay his back child support, so they’re giving him some time to give a lump sum now, and then he has to start paying the monthly back.” She added, “Riley wanted it. She said that’s her money, and it was owed to her. It’s not like I was going to get new money or something.”
