NeNe Leakes’ husband Gregg dies of cancer at 66


NeNe Leakes’ husband Gregg Leakes died of cancer on Wednesday. He was age 66.

“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,” their rep said in a press release.

The statement continued, “We ask that you pray for peace and strength over their family & allow them to mourn in private during this very very difficult time.”

NeNe, 53, first revealed that her husband was losing his battle to cancer this weekend, saying, “My husband is transitioning to the other side.”

The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star was flooded with supportive messages from her Bravo co-stars upon hearing the heartbreaking news.

Gregg was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2018, but it went into remission after he did six months of chemotherapy. But in June things took a turn for the worse, with NeNe confirming that his cancer had returned.

“I’d love for everybody to pray for Gregg, that would be beautiful. Pray for his strength,” she said at the time, adding, “And pray for me too.”

NeNe and Gregg first got married in 1997 but got divorced in 2011. They then remarried in 2013. They share a 22-year-old son, Brentt.

Brentt shared an emotional message amid the bad news this week, writing, “Spend time with your loved ones every chance you get. Time is so…valuable dog. I can’t express it. I’m learning the hard way watching my dad fight every day. Please go create memories with ya people.”
