NeNe Leakes and her husband Gregg Leakes got divorced back in 2011, and then they remarried in 2013. The second nuptials were immortalized in I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding. Now, the RHOA star is opening up about what caused the split between her and her hubby.
An episode of TV One’s Uncensored series includes her confession.
‘I have been with Gregg since 1996, so it’s been about 20 years or so,’ she said.
‘Gregg and I went through a bumpy road I would say for about two years. I was very young when I started dating Gregg, and he had been married before. I had never been married before, and he had children from his previous marriage, and I had one child. So we got engaged quick, like six months in, and we were married about a year later,’ NeNe continued.
NeNe also said that their relationship was built on friendship.
‘We were super tight, good friends — I mean, we’ve always been that way through me ever knowing Gregg. I think a lot of people were surprised when I filed for divorce,’ NeNe stated.
‘I filed for divorce because I always felt like you have to teach people how to treat you and I felt like at that time that Gregg wasn’t treating me the way I felt I should be treated. It was me teaching Gregg a lesson, and I think he got it,’ NeNe claimed about the reason for which she decided that she should end the marriage.
