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.
