Angela Simmons’ ex-fiance and the father of her son was shot dead outside his home on Saturday afternoon.
Sutton Tennyson, 37, was found dead in his garage with multiple gun shot wounds. Police told TMZ he was seen talking in his driveway with another man before he was shot.
The suspect was said to have fled in a car.
Growing Up Hip Hop star Angela, who is the daughter of Run DMC’s Rev Run, shared a series of emotional tributes to Sutton on Sunday.
“Thank you for leaving behind my greatest gift,” the 31-year-old wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of her ex and their son.
“I’m hurting. I’m numb. Thank you for the out pouring [sic] 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.”
A few hours later she followed it up with a video of their son watching a video of his dad.
“Reflecting. He keeps replaying it. RIP Sutton.”
The pair called off their engagement last year.
Following his death, Sutton’s lawyer told TMZ: “It’s devastating to hear about this tragedy. Mr. Tennyson was a loving father and an overall prince of a man.”
