Sutton Tennyson has passed away unexpectedly at the age of 37. Tennyson was fatally shot on Saturday afternoon in Atlanta, Georgia. He was shot multiple times around 4:30 PM in the garage of a building located in the 600 block of Jewel Drive SW. Police believe the shooting was prompted by a disagreement between at least 2 two people. Further details about the tragic incident have yet to be disclosed.
Tennyson is survived by his two-year-old son, Sutton Joseph Tennyson. The boy’s mother, Angela Simmons, was floored by the news of Tennyson’s passing. According to her social media upload, their child is the best thing her former partner could have left behind. Simmons, who is a socialite and the daughter of Rev Run, uploaded some photos of the young family and a short message in honor of her deceased ex-fiancé to that effect.
“Thank you for leaving behind my greatest gift. I’m hurting. I’m numb. Thank you for the outpouring of love everyone. I can’t believe I’m even saying Rest In Peace Sutton. I promise to hold SJ down in every way I promise “
The former couple was making headlines when their engagement was confirmed a couple of years ago. Their son was born before they called off the engagement in 2017.
