The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, 54, thanked her 4.3 million Instagram followers for their support on Monday as she confirmed via her Instagram Story that the 23-year-old was hospitalized last month with congestive heart failure and a stroke, as previously reported by TMZ.
Noting that the episode happened “two weeks ago,” Leakes said, “He’s only 23, so he’s really young for something like that to happen to him.”
She continued, “This is not the way I wanted it to come out. We wanted to be able to talk about it ourself when Brentt was in a better place. So, here I am because I would rather the correct thing be out there than something that’s not correct.”
NeNe explained that Brentt has been “struggling with speaking” but has “shown some improvement, and we’re really happy and blessed for that.”
