This season we know that Kandi’s ex will play a big part in her storyline. He is not only the father of her daughter Riley, but also has been the source of a LOT of drama in Kandi’s life. Kandi’s ex, who is referred to as Block, has been MIA for the vast majority of his daughter’s life and even has a romantic history with Porsha. So who exactly is this man?
Speaking with Bravo Kandi breaks their relationship down.
As to how the two met? Kandi reveals she met her future baby daddy at the radio station back in the day but the sparks didn’t fly until later:
I saw Block a few times at the radio station and probably a year after that I ran into him at a car dealership. That’s when we exchanged numbers and started hanging out.
Block is in the music industry, which is naturally why the two crossed paths: Block has a music label/music management company. Yung Joc and Boys in the Hood had hit records through Block’s label.
Despite getting a beautiful daughter from him, the two didn’t date very long and he was out of the picture soon after their love life began. Kandi also revealed how shady he was which is why she ended their relationship:
We only dated a few months. It was very short. I found out he was still in a relationship with his other kids’ mom, so I ended our relationship, but I was already pregnant with Riley.
His real name is actually Russell Spencer; however he goes by “Block.”
I truly admire Kandi for being a single mom and raising a beautiful, strong girl despite having no father figure in her life. It truly broke my heart to see how emotional she was at him not being there for Riley. I am surprised he is such a storyline this season; however it will be interesting to see how it all plays out.
