Angela “Angie” Kukawski was a Los Angeles-based business manager who worked at Boulevard Management in Woodland Hills. Her high-net worth clients included Nicki Minaj, Kanye West and, for a time, the Kardashians. According to reports, she died in an apparent homicide. Now new details are emerging and it’s quite chilling.
Prior to her terrible murder, Kim Kardashian’s former business manager is thought to have suffered enormously. Angela “Angie” Kukawski, 55, a former employee of the Kardashians and Jenners, was discovered dead within the trunk of her automobile in Simi Valley, California, on December 23.
Jason Barker, Angie’s boyfriend, was arrested in connection with the homicide on Wednesday and placed into a prison facility in Van Nuys, where he is being held on $3.07 million bond. The Ventura County Coroner confirmed the death and ruled it a homicide, prompting the L.A. County District Attorney’s office to bring murder charges in the case. The LAPD issued a statement regarding the same.
“Detectives believe that Barker killed the victim inside their Sherman Oaks residence, placed her inside her vehicle, and drove to Simi Valley.”
Angie’s murder was both intentional and evil, according to the D.A. It was also a particularly horrible execution, according to the D.A., because it utilised a knife and “the desire to induce severe and excessive agony and suffering for the purpose of retribution, extortion, persuasion, and for a sadistic purpose.” Following the news of the tragedy, the Kardashian/Jenner family issued a joint statement.
“Angela was truly the best. She cared about everyone [sic] of us and made things happen that were impossible. She will be greatly missed and we send our sincere condolences to her family and loved ones during this most difficult time.”
Kukawski works for Boulevard Management in Woodland Hills, a high-profile celebrity management agency. She had previously worked with Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Offset, and Tupac Shakur’s estate, in addition to the Kardashian/Jenner family.
