Rodney King’s Fiancee Not Invited To Funeral
Rodney King’s funeral services are coming up a week from today, and his family has already listed at least one persona non grata who will not be in attendance: Rodney King’s own fiancée.
Merely one day after the death of King, scandal began to surround the events of his death. King did struggle with alcoholism, and drugs and alcohol were initially reported to have played a role in his death. According to fiancée Cynthia Kelley, King cried out for help before she found him at the bottom of his pool. Problem is, the story changed several times when she told it to several friends. People started thinking she was lying or hiding something. “We’re told two of Kelley’s friends who spoke with her in the hours following King’s death have gone to police and spoke to a detective. Our source says the detective took down their story and their information and said he would be in touch,” reported TMZ.
That’s apparently enough to get one uninvited from her fiance’s funeral. There’s clearly no love lost between King’s family and Kelley, who have said that she will not be attending the service. It’s supposed to go down next Saturday in Hollywood, and the family hasn’t contacted Kelley since King’s death. Kelley also hasn’t made any efforts to make arrangements for King since his death, so the family doesn’t feel the need to reach out to her.
Though many of King’s family don’t bear any ill-will toward Kelley, most are skeptical of her story, and all are awaiting an official cause of death, reports TMZ.
