Reality TV star Angela Simmons is still dealing with the loss of her son’s father. The high-profile entertainer has penned an open message about her state of mind gearing up for 2019.

Last night, Simmons jumped on Instagram to discuss Sutton Tennyson‘s death and promise to channel his energy as she raises their son.

Back in November, reports emerged about the 37-year-old falling victim to gun violence.

Simmons initially hit up Instagram to speak on the aftermath.

Prior to splitting in 2017, both Simmons and Tennyson had a child together two years ago.

Tennyson and Simmons welcomed a son, Sutton Tennyson Jr., in September 2016. Earlier this year, Bossip reported that Tennyson faced a host of legal issues. He reportedly pleaded “no contest” to a misdemeanor marijuana trafficking charge. And he was also being sued for nonpayment on his car by Ford Motor Company. Simmons had announced their breakup on New Year’s Eve 2017 on Instagram after she was seen for months out about town without her engagement ring. (Rolling Out)
