“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes and her husband Gregg just released a joint statement denying that they are separated or divorcing. She also said she has not been unfaithful to him. But both sides acknowledge that the relationship is having problems that perhaps fueled the rumors in the first place.
NeNe Leakes says:
“Gregg and I are still together – not separated or divorced. I have not left my husband for NFL player Charles Grant, and I don’t know how those rumors started. Charles Grant is no more than a casual acquaintance of mine since hosting one of his charity events in Atlanta about a year ago. I really have not had any contact with him since the Super Bowl, where I congratulated him for his big win along with other fans. I have never cheated on my husband, and reports of infidelity on my part are simply untrue. Like any married couple, we’re going through some marital problems, and working toward a path of recovery that’s personal and private. Our marital issues have nothing to do with infidelity on my behalf.”
Gregg Leakes says:
“I stand behind my wife 100 percent! NeNe and I have been married for 13 years, and she has been a faithful wife to me. We are a normal married couple, going through ups and downs, just like any other couple. Yes, we’re experiencing a marital storm right now, but I believe with God’s guidance, we’ll get through it. Right now, our marriage is not a perfect one, but rumors and innuendos, accusing my wife of infidelity has been damaging to the reputations of NeNe and Mr. Grant. I am not an injured party, and accusations that NeNe has done something to hurt me or jeopardize our family are false and far from the truth.”
On “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Gregg came across as the Ying to NeNe’s Yang. He seemed calm and reasoned while NeNe was the sassy, emotional one. At public events, he always seemed laid back, not wanting to be in front of the cameras.
