Former “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes’ husband, Gregg Leakes, died of colon cancer on Wednesday, a representative for the couple told Page Six.
Gregg Leakes was 66.
“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,” the representative said.
NeNe Leakes revealed in June that her husband’s cancer had returned.
He was first diagnosed with the cancer in 2018 and Leakes said in 2019 that he was, at the time, cancer free.
“We ask that you pray for peace and strength over their family and allow them to mourn in private during this very, very difficult time,” the couple’s representative told Page Six.
