Mama Joyce “Has Never Fully Let Go Of Her First Impression” Of Kandi Burruss’ Husband Todd Tucker; “She Doesn’t Fully Trust Him And Probably Never Will,” Source Says!

Kandi Burruss’ mother Joyce Jones still doesn't fully trust her daughter's husband Todd Tucker. “This is not just for a storyline, it’s very real and not new. Kandi’s mom has never fully let go of her first impression of Todd,” a source told HollywoodLife.

“She has done her best to get along with him because he is Kandi’s husband and the father of two of her grandchildren but it’s always bothered Kandi’s mom that she married a man with less money than her. There are certain things he’s done that didn’t go over well with her, like the way he handled the pre-nup, he made it a big fight and didn’t want to sign it. He signed it in the end but her mom was not happy he made it an issue.”

“When Todd quit his job, that didn’t go over well with Kandi’s mom at all,” the source explained. “Even though Kandi totally encouraged him to quit and has no issues with it her mom doesn’t feel the same way. She’s not going to shut Todd out or accuse him of anything outright but the truth is she doesn’t fully trust him and probably never will.”

“Kandi is exhausted of always being stuck in the middle of the tension between Todd and Mama Joyce,” a second source told HollywoodLife. “At this point Kandi has no idea what it would ever take for her mom to just believe that Todd genuinely loves her and isn’t using her for clout or for her money. It adds unnecessary stress on things when they’re already trying to raise a newborn baby, in addition to Ace and their girls (Kandi also has daughter, Riley, 17, from a previous relationship and Todd has daughter Kaela, 23).

The source continued: “Kandi knows Mama Joyce wants the best for her, but she also knows her mom has been like this with most of the men she has been with and it’s exhausting for Kandi. ‘Nobody will ever be good enough for Kandi’ is the mentality she’s had to deal with all her life which is sad but it’s true.”

“The drama between Kandi, Todd and Joyce is real,” a third source confirmed. “There have been plenty of times Kandi has felt like she’s had to choose sides and someone is getting upset. Having Ace really did help bring Todd and Joyce to a better place but there still are issues there. Todd still does his best to respect Joyce and he feels defeated constantly no matter how hard he tries to provide for the family. He feels no matter what he’ll never be good enough for Joyce. It’s hard for Kandi and she does vent to her friends about it but Kandi is a strong woman and can make her own decisions.”

“Their love is real and will be long lasting,” the source continued. “She does defend Todd constantly and will continue to do so. She’s aware of how opinionated her mom is. Despite everything, they’ve come a long way since they were dating when it comes to Mama Joyce.”
