Kandi Burruss’ Ex Block Says She Is Too Wealthy to Have Demanded He Pay Child Support

Block accused Kandi Burruss of pursuing him while he was in a relationship.

Kandi Burruss had discussed Riley Burruss and Block’s relationship on “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” During one conversation, Mama Joyce even told Kandi she needed to push back on Block not paying child support. Riley also wanted Block to pay what he owed because she was preparing to go away to college. So she didn’t think it was fair that Block wasn’t going to put any money towards her education and it was all falling on Kandi.

Well, Block discussed Kandi and Riley during a recent interview.

While talking to Vlad TV, Block said that the drama unfolded because he was already in a relationship with another woman when he started dealing with Kandi.

“I already had a family going into the situation. And then I’m bringing in another daughter into this situation. I wasn’t going to leave home. That’s where the turbulence came in.”

He continued, “So when I was gonna go home, then she handled her business by calling my house and doing that. And that ain’t gon happen. I’m not gonna be around that type of sh*t. Let me tell my situation.”

And he claimed that Kandi was upset and reached out to the woman he was with, “Yeah but that just wasn’t gonna work once the daughter came into the play. She just felt like well let me call and tell her what’s going on all the time.”

When the interviewer asked if Kandi knew he was in a relationship, Block said, “She knew about the whole family but she probably, ‘Hey, I’m Kandi Burruss, sh*t. Her arms better be strong because I’ma snatch this one.'”

Block didn’t understand why Kandi Burruss put him on child support because she is wealthy.

On his current status with Riley, Block says, “We cool, we coming along. Now I’ma keep it real with you. Before I got on that show, we were cool. I was I don’t know what happened between 10 or 11 to 14 to 15.” He added, “I figured a lot of people got in her head because it was a lot of jealousy because all my kids live with me. I got three daughters and three boys. Every last one of them lives with me except Riley.”

And in Block’s opinion, Kandi is too wealthy to have put him on child support, “I think it’s a lot of jealousy because Riley was in that situation because her mom put me on child support. Now how you got more money than me, they mom and you put me on child support?”

Block really doesn’t feel he needed to be on child support because he was taking care of his other children, “I raised kids that weren’t mine. And she knew this. That was one of her attractions to me. I raised kids that wasn’t mine. Why wouldn’t I raise mine? When she started putting my business in the street…I don’t need nobody to tell me to raise mine. And I never have. I paid all the way. Now when she got 14, she was like, ‘Listen, you and Riley got your own situation. Take care of the business.'”

It was Block’s other relationship that kept him from being more involved in Riley Burruss’ life.

Block also said that he may have looked like a deadbeat father because he didn’t push to have a better relationship with Riley. However, what held him back was Kandi didn’t get along with the mother of his other children.

“Kandi never kept me away from her but she never made her either. She never said, ‘Nah. This the week to go to your dad’s house or this or that.’ And I didn’t really pursue that because of the situation I was in. So I just took what she gave me. And it made me look like it did.”

Block said he’s on good terms with Kandi and Riley now. Child support has been paid in full. And people don’t know that they are really cool now. And that one of his other daughters actually lived with Kandi for a couple of years.

As for Kandi, she has clapped back at the side chick label in the past. She said Block was not legally married when they were involved. And she did not know he was in a relationship. Once she found out, she ended things.

    It always baffles me when people say this. Riley didn’t live with Block. So him being on child support was fair and necessary. Single mothers should not have to be the primary providers while the fathers can occasionally pay for things.

    Goofy a-s logic. It took two people to create Riley. Kandi’s wealth doesn’t mean Block doesn’t have to pay his share. He said out his own mouth he didn’t pursue a relationship with Riley because of the baby momma he was with. So why is child support not fair? Men like this annoy the f-ck out of me.

    Off topic but I’ll never forget when Stevie J said he takes care of his kids because he buys them sneakers. Or when Scrappy was mad at Erica having him on child support because he said he spends time with their daughter. It’s like some males don’t understand how much children need financially. It should be common sense but sadly it isn’t.

    I’ll always side eye any man who complains about paying child support. It’s literally a percentage of their income. If that’s triggering, maybe you need to self reflect and work on your finances. A man should take pride in providing for all of his children. And a man shouldn’t ever think a successful woman should do more than the child’s father. Between this and seeing all these grown men gossiping about another man’s marriage yesterday, it’s clear real men are rare now.

    Unfortunately some men (and women) will never get it. Child support is not a bad thing in single parent situations.

    It is not about how much Kandia makes. Step up to the plate and do what you are supposed to do as a father. How dare you

    This man is clueless and has no idea how ridiculous he sounds. Back when all of this was happening, he had a lot of money. Kandi may be doing better than him now, but the truth remains he didn’t do much for Riley when he was doing well. Kandi’s wealth has nothing to do with his responsibilities as a father.

    Men always want to complain about Child support, but let that child turn out to be somebody great, they will be the first to puff out their chest talking about thats my child. Yea, with no help from you.

    It is shameful that he would think it’s ok to place the total burden on her. Extremely selfish and inconsiderate of his daughters well being

    It doesn’t make sense how much Kandie makes. A child have 2 parents it shouldn’t be only one taken care of the child. Do your part.

      It is funny how Block can brag about taking care of kids that are not his and whine about doing anything for his own biological child.Does he know how dead beat this makes him look.He is one pathetic loser no matter how he claims he is good with Riley and Kandi.
