Gregg sadly passed away after his battle with cancer on September 1.

Ever since his passing, NeNe has been paying tribute to Gregg by sharing a number of throwback videos and photos from their marriage.

The RHOA alum took to Instagram on Monday to share a photo of herself kissing Gregg.

In the snap, her back faced the camera as she wrapped her arms around Gregg’s neck and he placed his hand on her back.

The Bravo star captioned the sweet photo: “Today we celebrate you Gregg with love, just the way you wanted it💔”


Gregg lost his fight to cancer at the age of 66 after first being diagnosed in 2018, the family confirmed last Wednesday.

A spokesperson told E! News: “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.

“We ask that you pray for peace and strength over their family & allow them to mourn in private during this very, very difficult time.”

NeNe and Gregg- a real estate investor- first tied the knot in 1997, before divorcing in 2011.

However, the pair would reunite and once again walk down the aisle in 2013.

The real estate investor was able to accumulate an estimated net worth of $4 million during his 20 years of experience of working in the Atlanta, Georgia area.

Gregg is also a father to six children, Denton, Dexter, Katrina, Daryl, Damian, and Brentt.


Just days ago, NeNe fondly remembered Gregg by sharing a sweet video of the couple dancing as they kissed.

In the clip, the lovebirds walked up a staircase as NeNe sang along to the music blasting.

Gregg followed closely behind as he placed his arms on her waist and they began swaying together before locking lips. 

The couple went on to share a series of kisses and then continued to dance together for several minutes more. 


Shortly after revealing Gregg’s death, the RHOA star broke her silence with a sweet video of their final dance together.

In the short clip, Gregg wore a green cap on his head and a dress shirt during the sweet dance.

The TV personality repeated the song’s lyrics as she lovingly circled around him. 

Johnny Gill’s song, It Would Be You, played on the dance floor as the pair appeared to be enjoying themselves. 

She simply captioned the vid with a line of heart emojis.
