The husband of former Real Housewives of Atlanta Reality TV Show star Nene Leakes is “transitioning to the other side,” His wife, Nene Leakes has said. The #RHOA star shared the sad news at an entertainment lounge in Atlanta. Gregg Leakes and Nene have been together for 24 years.
He was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2018. He has been in remission since then but Nene had announced a few months ago that the cancer had returned.
Gregg Leakes is 67 years old and together they have two sons.
Viewers saw how difficult it was for the couple to cope with Gregg’s illness during the 11th season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
“I want to be at peace. When you see me and you see my son, give us a lot of love, okay? My husband is transitioning to the other side… You don’t know what we’re dealing with right now.” Nene said as she opened up to audiences at a family owned lounge in Atlanta.
