Ex-Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes’ boyfriend Nyonisela Sioh has hit his estranged wife with divorce papers nearly a year after he started dating the reality star, RadarOnline.com has learned.
According to court documents filed in North Carolina, Nyonisela has asked the court to terminate his marriage to Malomine Tehmeh-Sioh.
In court documents, Nyonisela said he has been married to Malomine since 2016 and they share one child together. He listed the date of separation as September 19, 2021.
Nyonisela explained that he has not lived with his estranged wife since that date. However, he noted that they both agreed it was not a trial separation, but they told each other the relationship was completely over.
Back in June 2022, Malomine sued NeNe accusing her of breaking up her marriage and causing her emotional distress. North Carolina is one of the few states to allow an individual to sue a partner’s extramarital partner.
The date of separation listed by Nyonisela is crucial to NeNe’s defense in the civil lawsuit.
Nyonisela and NeNe weren’t photographed hanging out together until December 2021. It appears Nyonisela is set to make the argument that his romance with the RHOA star didn’t take off until after he left his marriage — NOT before unlike his soon-to-be ex-wife claimed.
In addition, Nyonisela wants the court to divide up their marital assets. The divorce petition comes months after NeNe’s boyfriend spoke out about his wife’s lawsuit.
