Real Housewives of Atlanta alum NeNe Leakes has shared her heartbreak with fans, revealing her husband Gregg Leakes is nearing the end of his battle with colon cancer.
On Saturday, Aug. 29, NeNe was recorded telling patrons at her lounge The Linnethia in Duluth, Georgia, that Gregg doesn’t have much time left.
“My husband is transitioning to the other side,” NeNe said in a viral video obtained by It’s OnSite.
NeNe, 53, made her comments after people in the crowd criticized her for not wishing a fan a happy birthday.
“You don’t know what we’re dealing with right now,” she explained. “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.’”
On Sunday evening, NeNe appeared to follow up on her comments by posting an image on Instagram that said “BROKEN.” She included praying hands and broken heart emojis.
