Nicki Minaj took to social media Wednesday with a memorial for Angela Kukawski after her death. Kukawski was a Los Angeles business manager she had worked with. Kukawski was found dead in the trunk of her car last week after what is believed to be a homicide took place.
Minaj jumped on her Instagram and uploaded touching story dedicated to her former business manager. This was obviously a time of shock and heartbreak.
‘Hardest working, most reliable, sweetest person you could ever know,’ Minaj wrote. ‘You didn’t deserve this, Angela. My heart is breaking for your children. Rest in peace.’
Minaj spoke out on Wednesday, after police said that Kukawski’s boyfriend Jason Barker, 49, was charged with murder. Kukawski, 55, was found dead with a stab wound in the Simi Valley neighborhood of the San Fernando Valley early Thursday morning. Barker was arrested hours after her body was found and is being held at Van Nuys Jail on a $3 million bond, police said.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has filed murder charges against Barker. Police believe Barker killed Kukawski in their Sherman Oaks home on December 22. After that he put her body in his car, and drove to a relative’s home in Simi Valley.
“Angela was truly the best. She cared about everyone 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” the Kardashian family said in a statement. The investigation surrounding Kukawski’s death remains ongoing. Barker is scheduled to appear in Van Nuys Municipal Court on January 12 at 8:30 a.m.
