Last month, Kandi Burruss’ mother, Joyce Jones, received massive backlash from The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans after the 73-year-old claimed she would like to replace the singer’s husband, Todd Tucker, with another man , the “a decent job.”
That admission came on Oct. 12 when Jones and other Bravo stars attended Bravocon in New York City. During the panel, after being asked who she would replace Tucker with, Jones said, “If I could have replaced Todd, I would probably pick anyone who had a decent job… That was in the financial space, which is where she was . I just think she should have married someone who was in the same financial bracket.”
Though social media users came to Tucker’s defense when the clip began circulating online, the entrepreneur hadn’t addressed the situation as of Nov. 26, the Soul Train Awards red carpet.
Tucker attended the awards ceremony because Burruss and her Xscape group members, including Tiny Harris, LaTocha Scott, and Tamika Scott, received the Lady of Soul award.
During a red carpet interview with social media blog The Neighborhood Talk, Tucker admitted he doesn’t take Jones’ comments to heart. When asked for his opinion on Jones claiming she would replace him with another man with a “decent job,” Tucker said, “You want someone with a job? I am the owner.”
The dad of three added: “You know what I’m cool you know what I mean? For me, I don’t take it personally. I know what the mission is. I love my wife. I love my family. I don’t even listen to stuff like that.”
As Tucker’s comments circulated around the internet, many praised him for being a good man despite his dealings with Jones as his mother-in-law.
“Todd is a good one because I would have gone. She disrespected this man for too long and he was nothing but great to her daughter and grandchildren.”
“Parents can mean the end of their children’s relationships and marriages. I applaud Todd for walking the path through years of disrespect. Todd was the visionary behind OLG, it definitely made EVERYONE money.”
“Respect Todd’s name, he said he was the owner.”
“I don’t understand your problem with this man. He is good to your daughter and he is the father of your grandchildren. Why play him like that in public? lol.”
Tucker has been with Burruss since 2011 after meeting on the set of RHOA. The couple also lives in a blended family of four.
