NeNe Leakes says husband is ‘transitioning to the other side’ following cancer return

ATLANTA — Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes said her husband, Gregg Leakes, “is transitioning to the other side.”

Leakes made the revelation while at The Linnethia Lounge in Duluth over the weekend.

The whole thing was caught on camera, and the video was then tweeted.

Someone recorded Leakes on Saturday when she took the mic to address fans who deemed her “rude” for not saying “Happy Birthday” to a patron.

“You don’t know what we’re dealing with right now,” Leakes said.

“We walked in this lounge because we had to walk in this lounge because this is our business,” the reality star continued. “So when people approach and say, ‘You’re rude because you don’t want to say Happy Birthday,’ my husband is at home dying. I don’t want to say, ‘Happy Birthday.’”

“So please, give us some respect. Give us some love,” Leakes continued.

Gregg Leakes was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2018 but went into remission after treatment. In June, NeNe Leakes shared that the cancer had returned and he had undergone surgery.
