NeNe Leakes revealed her husband is battling cancer again.
The former star of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” shared the “difficult” news of Gregg Leakes’ health journey during an Instagram Live with The Jasmine Brand and said he recently underwent surgery.
“He’s in the hospital. He’s been in the hospital, tomorrow it’ll be a week,” 53-year-old NeNe shared when asked about her husband’s health. “I’m sure he’ll be home in about a week or so. He had to have a surgery, [because] his cancer did return.”
“He’s had this surgery before and he was in the hospital for about 15 days,” the former Bravolebrity explained of her husband’s treatment, adding that she expected him to remain there for the same amount of time.
NeNe said the cancer returning has been hard on Gregg and that the disease has made him “super small.”
“If you’ve ever been around somebody who’s had cancer before, he’s different,” she shared. “He’s different.”
“I’d love for everybody to pray for Gregg, that would be beautiful. Pray for his strength,” NeNe said, adding, “And pray for me too.”
Both Gregg and NeNe took to Instagram in May 2019 to celebrate his cancer entering remission.
“Look at God! We are over joyed to say, we saw the doctors for the results of Gregg’s Pet Scan he took last week! Test show, wait for It…..WE ARE CANCER FREE!!! Yes God!” she captioned a photo of Gregg.
The cancer battle also took a toll on the couple’s marriage. In 2019, the couple discussed considering divorce for a second time as well.
They first married in 1997 and divorced in 2011 before remarrying in 2013.
