NeNe Leakes’ husband, Gregg Leakes is sparking concerns among fans and well-wishers after his recent Instagram posts.


The “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” star, who had been battling cancer and was said to be in remission, took to social media asking for prayers.


In one of the photos where he wore a baseball cap with the inscription: “I Believe,” Gregg shared the sad update:

“No feeling well today America. Cancer leave me alone. I Bind you in the name of Jesus.”

He also shared another snapshot of himself with the caption:

“Standing in the “Need of Prayer” in Every area of my Life. My Health, Family, My Wife, My Kids, Every area. Cmon Prayer Warriors.”


NeNe, 51, first gave fans a hint into her husband’s current health struggles last June. She shared a photo of the latter sitting beside a computer screen on which the word “Cancer” was struck out with a red line.

The “RHOA” Housewife’s caption spoke volumes: “Our New Normal and the fight begins.”

He, however, turned down the doctor’s suggestion for Chemotherapy


During the Season 11 premiere of the reality series back in November, NeNe then revealed that Gregg, 63, was diagnosed with stage three colon cancer.

He had been experiencing “excruciating pain” in May, but when they got to the hospital, cancer was the last thing the couple was expected to hear.


“I went over and prayed to God, and I told Him, ‘If it’s time, let’s go,’” Gregg recalled. “‘I don’t fear death, I don’t want to go. If my work here is finished here, take care of them, let’s go.'"

The businessman went through a surgical procedure to have a portion of his colon removed and was declared to be in remission.

He, however, turned down the doctor’s suggestion for Chemotherapy to ensure that any remaining cancer cells are destroyed.


In an episode of RHOA, NeNe explained that they were both not enthusiastic about chemo because “we hear all the reports of people doing chemo and being very sick.”

The couple was instead considering alternative medicine, and Gregg confirmed:

“I’m deciding to really take my life and use it as a mouthpiece for other people. I just want to use my life in a way to help someone. So I can say, ‘I’m Gregg and I have cancer,’ but I will be a survivor.”


Delivering on his resolve, Gregg launched a website to “bring more awareness to this dreadful disease called cancer” and support charities such as the American Cancer Society with proceeds from the sales of merchandise like “mugs, caps & t-shirts.”

NeNe is yet to comment on her husband’s recent cry for help, but social media users have been sending in prayers and encouraging words.

“Sending many prayers your way! God Bless you and your family. From 1 Warrior to another,” wrote one person in the comments.

“You are healed,” declared another.
