The boyfriend of Kim Kardashian’s former business manager Angela ‘Angie’ Kukawski — who police believe was murdered earlier this month — has been arrested.
Kukawski’s partner, 49-year-old Jason Barker, was detained in connection with the killing, according to ABC7. According to law enforcement officials, the LAPD had been looking into Kukawski’s death for a week before bringing in Barker.
The celebrity business manager was discovered dead inside her car in Simi Valley on December 23, as Radar has reported. As part of a missing person’s inquiry, the cops went seeking for her.
The death was confirmed by the Ventura County Coroner, who deemed it 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 prestigious Woodland Hills firm Boulevard Management. She also represented Kanye West, Offset, and Tupac Shakur’s estate, in addition to the Kardashians.
The Kardashian/Jenner family has been hit with a slew of bad news recently. An accused stalker showed up at Kylie Jenner’s house earlier this month, forcing her to rush to court. She filed a declaration in court, stating that she and her daughter Stormi are afraid for their lives.
The petition was granted, and the suspect was ordered to stay 500 yards away from Kylie and her home.
The man chose to ignore the order and returned to Kylie’s house many days later. He was subsequently arrested and taken into detention, where he remains today. The District Attorney has filed two criminal charges against him, and if convicted, he faces a year in prison.
