AJ Had Sickle Cel Disease is reporting that Sickle Cell Anemia may have played a significant role in the death of Ashley “A.J.” Jewell, the ex-fiancé of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burress.

       Fulton County Associate Medical Examiner Dr. Kelly Rose tells TMZ preliminary autopsy results led her to believe that A.J., who died two weeks ago after a strip club brawl, suffered from the life long blood disorder that inhibits oxygen flow to tissues in the body. 

       Police say Ashley ”was involved in an altercation in the parking lot and he received a severe blow to the head,”  Police Lt. Keith Meadows told the Atlanta TV station WBSTV. Immediately following the fight, Ashley was taking to a hospital where he later died.

Sickle cell anemia is a disease passed down through families in which red blood cells form an abnormal crescent shape. (Red blood cells are normally shaped like a disc.).  Sickle-cell disease may lead to various acute and chronic complications, several of which are potentially lethal.

Atlanta native and singing superstar T-Boz of TLC, famously also suffers from sickle cel anemia, which has affected her career for years.
