NeNe Leakes Says Hubby Greg Was Embarrassed By Cancer
When it comes to French Montana rumors, NeNe Leakes ain’t worried about nothin’.
That’s because—they aren’t true. Amid claims that the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum was cheating on her husband Gregg Leakes with the Grammy-nominated rapper, NeNe got the chance to set the record straight on the speculation during a remote Nov. 17 appearance on The Real.
“Not my type, ok,” she told the co-hosts. “I love French. He’s super fun, he’s shown me a lot of love, but he’s not my type of guy, so I didn’t get a chance to cheat on Gregg. Dang.”
The 52-year-old reality star also pointed out, “There’s always rumors about me doing something.”
As for her husband’s reaction, NeNe’s man knows her better. “When you’ve been with somebody as long as I’ve been with Gregg, for 25 years, you know your mate,” she told the co-hosts. “You know what they will do and what they won’t do.”
Ultimately, French Montana just wouldn’t make the cut. “Gregg, I know his type,” she assured, “and I think he knows mine.”
The husband and wife have been together on and off since 1996 with some bumps along the way. After finalizing their divorce in 2011, the two tied the knot again in June 2013. In the years since, they’ve weathered Gregg’s battle with colon cancer. In May 2019, the reality star announced her husband was officially cancer-free.
In August 2019, NeNe celebrated his birthday with a public declaration of love. “Ain’t nothing like the love of a Leo man! My life would be empty without you in it Gregg!” she wrote on Instagram. “You have taught me that pleasing everyone is impossible but pleasing you is a MUST HAPPY BIRTHDAY GREGG! I LOVE YOU FOREVER.”
