It’s a sad day for the Leakes family.

“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 tragic news came on the heel of Nene wishing a club goer a happy birthday.
“Give us lot of love, OK? My husband is transitioning to the other side,” Nene told the patrons of The Linnethia Lounge in Duluth, Georgia.
“People approach and say, ‘You’re rude because you don’t want to say happy birthday.’ My husband is at home, dying.”
“Sometimes you don’t know what people are dealing with and what people are going through, OK? My husband is not going to be here in the next couple of days, OK?”
Gregg was first diagnosed with colon cancer in 2018.
In April 2019, Nene celebrated her husband as he completed six weeks of chemotherapy.
After being in remission, the former Bravolebrity revealed Gregg’s cancer returned.
