"Today the Leakes family is in deep pain with a broken heart. After a long battle with cancer, Gregg Leakes has passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by all of his children, very close loved ones, and wife Nene Leakes," a statement from publicist and family friend Ernest Dukes confirmed on September 1. "We ask that you pray for peace and strength over their family & allow them to mourn in private during this very very difficult time."

Nene and Gregg married in 1997 and remarried again in 2013 following a brief divorce. Together Nene and Gregg had one son Brentt; they each also had children from previous relationships.
