The boyfriend of Kim Kardashian’s former business manager Angela ‘Angie’ Kukawski — who police believe was murdered earlier this month — has been arrested.
According to ABC7, 55-year-old Kukawski’s partner 49-year-old Jason Barker was arrested in connection with the killing. Law enforcement sources reveal LAPD had been investigating Kukawski’s death for a week before they brought in Barker.
As Radar previously reported, the celebrity business manager was found dead inside her car in Simi Valley on December 23. The police had gone looking for her as part of a missing person’s investigation.
The Ventura County Coroner confirmed the death and ruled the cause of death as a homicide.
Law enforcement sources claim Kukawski’s body appears to have been transported from Van Nuys to a home of the suspect’s family at some point.
According to jail records obtained by Radar, Barker is being held on $3 million bail and has his next court date set for January 12.
Kim and the Kardashian family have yet to release any statement on the death. We’re told the family was represented by many business managers at the firm Kukawski worked at and have since switched business managers.
Kukawski worked at the high-profile firm Boulevard Management in Woodland Hills. Aside from the Kardashian family, she represented Kanye West, Offset, and the estate of Tupac Shakur.
The Kardashian/Jenner clan are dealing with quite a bit of scary news lately. Kylie Jenner had to rush to court earlier this month after an alleged stalker showed up to her home. She wrote a declaration in court explaining she fears for her and her daughter Stormi’s life.
A judge granted the petition and ordered the suspect to stay 500 yards away from Kylie and her home.
The man decided to violate the order and showed up to Kylie’s home again days later. He was then taken into custody and remains behind bars. The DA hit him with two criminal charges and he is facing one year in jail if convicted.
