Following a monotonous long stretches of fighting colon disease, Gregg at last went to the opposite side at 66 years old, “peacefully.”
NeNe Leakes’s husband, Gregg Leakes, who she first married in 1997, has died of colon cancer, days after she clarified that he was “transitioning to the other side.”
Their publicist and family companion, Ernest Dukes, is the one who affirmed and made the announcement on Wednesday, “Today the Leakes family is in deep pain with a broken heart. After a long battle with cancer, Gregg Leakes has passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by all of his children, very close loved ones and wife Nene Leakes.”
“We ask that you pray for peace and strength over their family & allow them to mourn in private during this very very difficult time.”
On Saturday, the RHOA star was allegedly captured on video telling the guests at the Linnethia the reason why she wasn’t in the mood to give someone a birthday holler after they came up to her.
“You don’t know what we’re dealing with right now,” the Glee veteran said. “We walked in this lounge because we had to walk in this lounge because this is our business. So, when people approach and say, ‘You’re rude because you don’t want to say happy birthday,’ my husband is at home dying. I don’t want to say, ‘Happy birthday.’”
Reactions to NeNe Leakes Husband Gregg Has Passed Away
Random: I remember meeting Gregg Leakes outside of the Broadway Theatre moments after the curtains closed on Nene in Cinderella. As cool & debonair as he is on tv, he was 5xs that in person. “Hey man we got on the same hat.”— Black Ass Man (@MartinaezJ) September 2, 2021
My prayers are with his family. #RIPGreggLeakes pic.twitter.com/jNpnUL9WoU
