Simmons and Tennyson announced their engagement in April 2016, welcoming their son five months later. She revealed in an Instagram post in December 2017 that they had split.

Atlanta Police told Us Weekly that officers responded to a call of shots at a home in southwest Atlanta just before 5 p.m. on Saturday and found Tennyson, 37, lying dead with multiple gunshot wounds inside an open garage.

“Preliminary information indicates the victim had been talking in the driveway with another man, when the conversation escalated and the suspect shot the victim multiple times,” Officer Jarius Daugherty told Us. “The suspect sped from the scene in a car.” The death is being investigated by the Atlanta Police Department’s homicide unit.
