One day after the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that NeNe Leakes and her husband of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” were evicted from their home, the reality show star claims the news has been greatly exaggerated.
“I am truly blessed to enjoy a wonderful life and lifestyle,” NeNe said in a statement released Wednesday. “We have indeed moved to another home, but we did so on our own free will. We live in an absolutely beautiful home and we are fortunate to be able to live in the place of our choice.”
AJC reported that NeNe and her husband, real estate investor Gregory Leakes, left the property in Duluth, GA in November — a month after an eviction notice was filed by Winwood Properties. Gregory was said to have been behind $6,240 in rent.
“Without wasting time on the details, the only thing I will say is that we were NOT evicted,” NeNe said in her statement. “Everybody knows that I like to be honest, real and upfront. If something was wrong, I would tell you!”
