Kandi’s Ex Doesn’t Want To Pay Back Child Support Due To Entrepreneur’s Success

By Brooks Welch

The father of Kandi Burruss‘ daughter Riley, Russell ‘Block’ Spencer, recently spoke to Vlad TV about his relationship with his daughter.

“Every last one of my kids lives with me from when they’re born until they graduate except Kandi’s [daughter],” Block explained.

He continued, “I’ve got an accomplished name, [and I gave my kids who lived with me] a lot of stuff. And I think it’s a lot of jealousy because Riley wasn’t in that situation because her mom put me on child support.”

Block didn’t seem to understand why Burruss wanted child support for Riley because, according to him, her net worth exceeds his.

Kandi responded with an Instagram story that addressed him directly.

“I don’t care how well I’m doing, I still need that money you owe me,” Burruss wrote. “Don’t BLOCK your blessings not by doing right by your children.”

As reported by Bravo, during the April 25 episode of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ Kandi Burruss offered an update on where things stand with Riley Burruss’ dad, Russell “Block” Spencer. The RHOA cast member confirmed that she had won her child custody case involving Riley’s dad, which was first discussed at the beginning of the season.

“They basically say he got to pay his back child support, so they’re giving him some time to give a lump sum now, and then he has to start paying the monthly back,” she said during Part 1 of the Season 13 reunion, which aired Sunday.

In response to fans who wondered why she pursued the case, she added, “Riley wanted it. She said that’s her money, and it was owed to her. It’s not like I was going to get new money or something.”

In a tweet released by Kandi last year, she responded to concerns about who the child support belonged to.
