Today in Hip Hop News, we report the tragic passing of Angela “Angie” Kuwaski, a business manager that worked with Nicki Minaj, the Kardashians, that was reportedly murdered last week in Los Angeles.
Kukawski has a long rap sheet of dealings with major celebrities from working with Kanye West, Offset, Tupac Shakur’s estate, and more over the years.
According to sources, Kukawasi was found dead in the trunk of her car. The Los Angeles police said on Wednesday they arrested her boyfriend Jason Barker on charges of murdering her.
The Los Angeles Police Department issued a statement “Kukawasi’s boyfriend, 49-year-old Jason Barker, was arrested on suspicion of murder. He was booked into Van Nuys jail and since the arrest, the Los Angeles County District attorney’s office has filed murder charges on Barker”.
Her body was found in the trunk of her car the next day parked at the 1500 block of Patricia Avenue in Simi Valley, the statement added.
The detectives overseeing the homicide claimed that Mr Barker allegedly killed Kukawasi inside their Sherman Oaks residence, placed her inside her vehicle, and drove to Simi Valley.
The Kardashian released a statement explaining she’ll be “greatly missed”.
“You didn’t deserve this, Angela. My heart is breaking for your children. Rest In Peace”, Nicki Minaj posted on Instagram.
