NeNe Leakes is going through a tough time after sharing heartbreaking news to a crowd in her nightclub that her husband Gregg Leakes is losing to his battle with colon cancer.
NeNe was seen in the video saying, “My husband is transitioning to the other side,” after a customer at her nightclub accused her of being rude for not wishing them a happy birthday. She pleaded for the public to have more compassion and give her some love after delivering the news, she added,“sometimes you dont know what people are dealing with.”
This comes just weeks after the reality star revealed that her husband’s colon cancer has returned three years after his first diagnosis in 2018 as previously reported by Radar.
She confirmed the tragic news back in June, and expressed her gratitude for the support from fans in a lengthy Instagram post stating, "Hey guys....I was really caught off guard in that interview when asked about Gregg!"
"He’s a private person so i hadn’t said anything publicly (his wishes) (Only our circle really know details) and really sometimes it’s best that way because people just read into it whatever they want too and family, whew Chileeeeee i just can’t." The reality personality continued, "Gregg told me this morning he had 80 text messages and wanted to know what was wrong with his phone. Thank you for your many prayers[,] text messages and calls," she wrote. "PS: Gregg says to me, keep smiling."
Later in the month, the TV personality was scheduled to make an appearance on The Talk but she claimed that she was not able to make it due to Gregg’s current condition.
She tweeted the reason of her absence from the show with an update of her husband’s state via her Twitter account. "I was [supposed] to be hosting The Talk today but I got good news that Gregg was coming home after being hospitalized 6 weeks."
But the announcement she made from the club suggested the situation has taken a turn for the absolute worst.
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta alum and husband share two sons, Bryson and Brentt. The couple first got married in 1997. They later reportedly split and remarried in 2013 at the InterContinental Atlanta Hotel which was filmed to be featured in their own spinoff show titled I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding.
