Yesterday, Angela was in Philadelphia with her sister Vanessa Simmons to host her uncle Danny Simmons' inaugural the "Art For Life Philadelphia" event. Her brother JoJo Simmons was also in attendance.
Angela began dating Sutton in 2015, got engaged and they welcomed a baby boy, Sutton Jr., in September 2016. In late 2017, Angela announced she and Sutton were calling off their engagement. In an interview with Power 105's "The Breakfast Club," she explained why she and Sutton, who is rumored to have a not so clean reputation in the streets, decided to call it quits, saying:
"Things don't always work," she said. "You can plan, plan, plan, but God sometimes have another plan or your actions are going to have your plan change drastically. ... Personally, things change. People come in and out your life. People change and you just have to be willing to accept that. And I've just gotten to the point where 'you are who you are' and I'm just going to accept you for who you are. You can't change people."
"It's many, many, many reasons," she responded. "I don't really want to get into that. It just was enough to not be in the relationship anymore. It just didn't make sense for me and I want my son to grow up in a happy, positive environment. You don't want them [kids] around anything that's going to make them grow up the way they shouldn't. So, I'm just really sensitive to my child and the energy that's around."
Prayers up for the Simmons and Sutton families during this tragic time.
