It looks like another sad day for Kandi Burruss.


On Tuesday, July 22, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star informed her followers via Instagram that one of her biggest fans, Richard Jarome Wiggens, recently passed away.

“Got super sad news today. I found out that my #1 fan@Drahcirblack has passed,” says Kandi. “He had such a beautiful spirit. Every record I ever did he bought it, he came to every show that he could, he always sent supportive messages & tweets (which mean so much especially in a world where a lot of people like to post negative things), he even got a tattoo with my name on his chest. I remember when he first posted the pics of hisself getting the tattoo. @DonJuanNC & I debated over if it was real or not. Well we finally saw@Drahcirblack in person & it was real!”

Kandi posted a video to her account full of Richard’s photos, including a number of snapshots of the two together, with Richard exposing the tattoo of her name on his chest. While it’s unclear how Richard died, it’s apparent that he made a major impact on his idol during his short time on earth.

“R.I.P.@Drahcirblack aka Richard Jarome Wiggens. Thank you for all the love! You will definitely be missed,” writes Kandi. “My heart goes out to your family & friends. Thank you for being a part of #TeamKandi!”
