Kandi has opened up about missing her brother before. She told Bravo.com in 2012 that losing him changed her life.
“When he died, that was the worst moment in my entire life. There’s no way to describe it to anyone, and it’s a hard thing to even share with people,” she said. “My brother passed when I was 15, and I don’t think you’re the same anymore after you lose someone who’s that close to you. You realize anyone can go at any time.”
