Roommates, while fans continue to send their prayers and condolences after Gregg Leakes passed away, NeNe Leakes has just publicly broken their silence. In a heartfelt post on her Instagram page, NeNe Leakes posted a video with Gregg in her Atlanta lounge, The Linnethia.
When several Real Housewives of Atlanta celebrities and co-stars sent their love, support and condolences to NeNe Leakes after the sad news of her husband Gregg Leakes’ death, she was silent but publicly announced his death on Instagram for the first time. In the video, the two smile, hug and dance together in his now final days.
As we previously reported, Gregg died at the age of 66 after a long battle with colon cancer. Earlier this week, NeNe Leakes confirmed that he is in transition and has very little time left.
Publicist and close friend of the Leakes family, Ernest Dukes, confirmed the heartbreaking news in a statement, writing:
“Today the Leakes family is heartbroken. After a long battle with cancer, Gregg Leakes died peacefully in his home, surrounded by all his children, very close relatives and his wife, Nene Leakes. We ask you to pray for peace and strength for your family and allow them to mourn privately during this very, very difficult time. “
Gregg was first diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in June 2018, and almost a year later, in May 2019, he celebrated happy being cancer-free. Unfortunately, his cancer returned in June this year, followed by NeNe, who told fans that he had been hospitalized for six weeks after an operation.
We continue to express our condolences to NeNe Leakes and her family at this difficult time.
