“Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum NeNe Leakes was recently recorded telling patrons of her Atlanta lounge, The Linnethia, that husband Gregg Leakes could possibly be losing his battle with cancer.
In footage obtained by It’s OnSite, Leakes, 53, is seen addressing customers who called her “rude” for not acknowledging a birthday in the crowd, leading the reality star to share her personal pain.
“My husband is transitioning to the other side,” she told the room before turning to acknowledge those who called her out.
“You don’t know what we’re dealing with right now. 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,’ okay?”
“If you’ve ever been around somebody who’s had cancer before, he’s different,” she shared at the time. “He’s different.”
“I’d love for everybody to pray for Gregg, that would be beautiful. Pray for his strength,” NeNe said, adding, “And pray for me too.”
They first married in 1997 and divorced in 2011 before remarrying in 2013.
Leakes could not immediately be reached for comment.
