His team made counseling available to him and Kasandra, in an attempt to patch up the problems in their relationship. The paper claims the Chiefs were “bending over backwards” to help the couple out.
Jovan was also reportedly with another woman, Brittni Glass, just hours before he shot his girlfriend. According to the New York Post, he had been drinking with Brittni and ended up falling asleep in his Bentley.
