Nene Leakes Reveals Husband Gregg’s Cancer Has Returned

Published: Tuesday 29th Jun 2021 by Sam

In sad news, Nene Leakes has revealed that cancer her husband Gregg Leakes conquered has returned.

Full story below…

The ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ original shared the news during an interview with The Jasmine Brand.

Gregg first battled stage 3 colon cancer in 2018, a journey that was chronicled during season 11 of RHOA.

Speaking on Instagram Live, Nene signaled the fact that this is the first time she has spoken publicly about his present predicament:

“He’s been in the hospital for a week, tomorrow. I’m sure he’ll be home in about a week or so. He had to have a surgery.”

Stressing that her husband has been “different,” she went on to add “It’s difficult.”

The 53-year-old continued:

“He’s super small. If you’ve ever been around somebody who’s had cancer before, he’s different. He’s different.”

She concluded by asking she would love it if “everybody would pray for Gregg, that would be beautiful.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with The Leakes’ at this difficult time.

    Nene is hoping she can be a widow so she can taking over all his husband’s property 💅🏿

    • DC3FORVER June 29, 2021

      She now has more money than Greg and for your FYI Gregg had to file bankruptcy back in 2011 and so all those assets were transferred to NeNe so they would not be taken. She doesn’t need him for money. So please stop trying to be shady from a man who is sick. You will never have money or be rich you will forever be the fat loser queen who’s parents wish they would have aborted so you’ll forever be a loser

      Your trashy, ignorant comment is not welcome here at a time like this. You need to sit down somewhere and learn how to have compassion when people are going through things. There is nothing perfect or splendid about your ignorance.

    There are so many carcinogens allowed in foods and products that are banned internationally. I hope he can beat it.
