Written by KingCnote on September 2, 2021
Gregg Leakes, the husband of Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes, died Wednesday at age 66.
In a statement, publicist and family friend Ernest Dukes said, “Today the Leakes family is in deep pain with a broken heart. After a long battle with cancer, Gregg Leakes has passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by all of his children, very close loved ones and wife Nene Leakes.”
Last week, NeNe said that Gregg, who was a staple on the Bravo reality show, was “transitioning to the other side.”
The couple divorced in 2011 but remarried in 2013.
Real Housewives producer Andy Cohen tweeted, “I am heartbroken over the passing of Gregg Leakes, a wonderful man. I jokingly called him ‘Pastor Leakes’ but in truth he was a strong voice of reason & commanded great respect among the entire #RHOA team. I am sending love and strength to @neneleakes & the entire Leakes family.”
