Gregg Leakes, who is a real estate investor and consultant, had ups and downs in his marriage with The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes. The pair stumbled through a lot of challenges before deciding to end their relationship.

Gregg's Wife Spills Reasons For Divorce 

Gregg Leakes was in a married relationship with the television personality, NeNe Leakes since 1997, and the couple together has a son named Brentt.

The pair managed to survive the challenges together for 20 long years, but when things started to worsen, NeNe eventually filed for divorce.

Gregg separated with his wife back in 2011, and the two went on their paths. However, after two years of their split, the couple got back together. They re-engaged and even tied the wedding knots in 2013. 

Gregg's wife NeNe, who believed that her relationship with Gregg was based on friendship, opened up about the reasons for splitting during a TV One's Uncensored series in April 2018.

In the interview, NeNe divulged that she filed the petition due to Gregg's behavior towards her, and admitted that Gregg was not treating her the way she wanted to be addressed. She uttered. 

" 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."

Moreover, NeNe added that she wanted to teach Gregg a lesson by divorcing him, and claimed that she was successful in doing so.  

"It was me teaching Gregg a lesson, and I think he got it."
