He was the son of his father, Leroy Richardson, and his mother, Karen Johnson. Though his father is Leroy, he had very less connection with his dad. His parents were separated, and Andre rarely met him He once met him in 2002 only for a few hours. Later, Leroy was shot dead in Mississippi.
Though he had not a great relationship with his father, he surely remembers him today also. Like that, on Father's day of 2020, he posted his dad's photo and asked some questions and wished him at the same time. It was as,
"I held on to a lot of frustration and anger as a kid because I never understood why you never came around. But as I became older I just wish I could sit and talk with you. But god had different plans. I love and miss you pops. Happy Father’s Day!!!"
He grew up along with his brother in the rough neighborhood of Houston. He has still a very close relationship with his bro and often shares photos with him and his mom together. Andre's brother, nicknamed as PopeSlim is also active on Insta with the username @popeslim.
He is very close with his mother Karen and still lives together with her mom. After her separation from her husband, Karen had to do a lot of hard work, still working as a letter carrier. So, she asked her brother Andre Melton ad Keith Francis to look over her son, Andre, who was just very young.
It was his uncle, Francis who used to play high school football at Miami Senior High School who taught him to play football. Francis used to throw balls and teach Andre to catch the ball at just 4 years of age. He was the one who found the talent of Andre as a wide receiver.
And as expected, he also followed his uncle's footsteps and joined the same high school Francis went to.
