Real Housewives Of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes braved Los Angeles WITHOUT her wedding ring -- after finally splitting from her husband Greg Leakes.
Controversial NeNe - who has been married to her husband for 14 years – ventured out to an event on Saturday and it was clear she had taken off her wedding band.
RadarOnline.com has also learned NeNe is terrified her ex may now reveal some shady secrets about the former stripper.
The pair infamously met him while she was working as a stripper called Silk at an Atlanta club.
But in recent times their marriage has been under pressure with NeNe being linked to NFL star Charles Grant and her son Bryson being arrested for being in the possession of marijuana.
A source told RadarOnline.com: “NeNe has admitted that it’s over between her and Greg and she was not wearing her wedding ring recently.
“She is worried that Greg might go public about some of her secrets because she has admitted that she has some ‘skeletons’ in her closet.
“Also Greg has indicated that he might want some alimony payments from her should they get divorced, so, the situation could get really messy.
“As yet neither party has filed any divorce papers - NeNe just thinks her time with Greg has come to an end.
“She has no bad feelings against him but cannot believe she stayed in the relationship this long – they both still have possessions in their Atlanta home but have been spending more and more time apart.
“NeNe’s son Bryson is not that close to Greg and he has been standing-by his mom as her marriage has crumbled but she has definitely put on some weight recently.
“She was remaining tight-lipped about her relationship with the football star Charles Grant but was excited about a new segment she has started filming for a local Atlanta television station.
“NeNe hopes her split will be amicable but she is bracing herself in case Greg decides to be vindictive because she knows that he knows about her past.
“And he may try and cash-in on her fame by writing a book or giving interviews about their life together.”
NeNe, 42, who is originally from Queens, New York, met her current husband while she was working as an exotic dancer called Silk at an Atlanta club.
The reality star - who also has another son Brentt with Leakes – once revealed: “I could make $500 off one guy just by turning him on.”
“These men were obviously there to see what I had, and I quickly realized that those men weren’t there to make me feel bad about myself.”
The reality star recently unveiled a bizarre new look after having some plastic surgery on her nose.
NeNe will start in the third series of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta which is due to air late summer.
