Angela Simon's father Rev Run boycotted her baby's father Sutton Tennyson's funeral. Sutton was laid to rest with a grand Atlanta funeral service this weekend, and Angela's father REFUSED TO ATTEND.

Angela was accompanied to the funeral with her brother Jojo. It's not clear whether her sister Vanessa was at the event.

But MTO news can confirm that her father. Rev Run was NOT in attendance.

The absence likely had to do with the alleged volatile relationship that Sutton had with daughter Angela Simmons. Angela accused Sutton of domestic violence in court papers.

Here is the program from the service, which seemed very moving:

A man is in custody for the shooting death of Sutton Tennyson, the ex-fiance and father of “Growing Up Hip Hop” star Angela Simmons’ 2-year-old son. 

Michael Williams was charged with murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during a felony, according to online records from the Atlanta Police Department.  

TMZ and Channel 2 Action News report that Williams turned himself into police Wednesday afternoon. His lawyer, Jackie Patterson, said his client is “presumed innocent.”
