It’s Real Housewives of Atlanta favorite, former Xscape singer, Grammy Award winning songwriter, Kandi Buruss! Gerald knew how to pick him didn’t he?

Kandi Buruss confirmed this in a recent interview:

“Riley [her daughter] was 6 months old when I met Gerald [Levert] and we started dating.” She also later confirmed in a radio interview that they dated for about 2 years.

Kandi admittedly says she has maintained a very close relationship with some of Gerald’s family. She even had Gerald’s dad, the legendary Eddie Levert, star as a lead role in her stage play, A Mother’s Love.

She has a close relationship with the eldest son of Gerald, LeMicah Levert, and even refers to him as one of her kids. Here’s a pic of Kandi attending LeMicah’s graduation from Morehouse College 2 years ago.

Gerald’s family isn’t the only ex’s family Kandi keeps a close relationship with, she said that her other ex who also passed away a few years ago, has children whom she is still very close to and her husband Todd is cool with it…

[Kandi] has stayed in touch with the children of her former fiance’ Ashley ‘AJ’ Jewell, who was killed in a bar brawl in Georgia in 2009, and they have all embraced her relationship with her husband, Tv producer Todd Tucker.

Burruss, who has her own [12-year-old] daughter, Riley, tells Sister 2 Sister magazine,

“They still come over. They hang with us and they know Todd. When I first started dating Todd, I didn’t know how welcoming he would be to the fact that I am still in my exes’ children’s lives. Like, even Gerald’s son LeMicah comes around. And I call them my kids, too. But Todd has been very supportive, very open to them and being a great friend. Of course he’s not trying to be anybody’s dad or anything, but he’s a good friend for them. And they’re like, ‘Oh, Todd is cool.'”

It looks like Kandi has created some loving relationships with her extended families, that’s a beautiful thing and it would have been really interesting to see Gerald and Kandi remain in a long relationship while he was here. They both have down to earth personalities, so they’re chemistry was probably magnetic.
