In an ironic turn of events, it’s been revealed that the accused arsonist of the Atlanta Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed by police, was allegedly set on fire by none other than his girlfriend Natalie White.
White was arrested on Tuesday for burning down an Atlanta Wendy’s as retaliation for the police killing of Rayshard Brooks. However, her lawyer confirmed that White was Brooks “girlfriend,”.
In the police bodycam footage, Brooks was seen referring to Natalie White, 29, as his “girlfriend” during the June 12 traffic stop that ended in his death. White turned herself in Tuesday after a warrant was issued for her arrest.
“[White and Brooks] were close friends,” her attorney, Drew Findling, told The NY Post, while also confirming that she was the woman Brooks referred to in the bodycam video.
However, Brooks was married to his wife, Tomika Miller. Miller has been seen speaking at press conferences and receiving gifts on behalf of their children.
Findling declined to comment further on Brooks’ relationship with White
“out of respect to the Brooks family who had a funeral today and is grieving the loss of Rayshard Brooks.”
The Brooks family has since released a statement saying they knew nothing of Rayshard’s relationship with Natalie White and the only one who can confirm their relationship is White.
