Angela Simmons’ son’s father and ex-fiancé Sutton Tennyson was shot and killed at his home on Saturday around 4:30PM in his garage. No other details are available at this time. Angela and Sutton split in December 2017 less than a year after getting engaged and welcoming their first child.
“I just got to a place where I felt like I wasn’t happy, and I tried, and I tried, and I tried and I wanted it to work because the last thing I wanted to do was not be together with the person I had my child with,” she said in a confessional for the season 4 premiere of WEtv’s Growing Up Hip-Hop. “God had another plan for me.”

Roomies. We are sending our condolences to the #Tennyson and #Simmons family. We just received word that Sutton Tennyson, the father of Angela Simmons’ child, was shot and killed at his home today. Let’s keep his family and friends covered in prayer during this difficult time 🙏🏽 ____________________________________ No further details are available at the moment, but please keep his family lifted in prayer.
The single mom said that she tried to salvage her relationship with Tennyson, including going for counseling.
“For me, it’s already a lot, then everyone has to look at me like, ‘oh you’re not married, you’re this, you’re Reverend’s daughter.’ So I’m going through all of that and I have to raise a kid in front of the world…single! People are always going to be in my comments, ‘where’s the dad? what’s this?’ It’s non-stop! They’re always worried about my ring and if it’s on or off. [People] think they know me and they don’t. They have no idea.”
Prayers go out to both Angela & Sutton’s families.
