How Much Was Gregg Leakes Worth At The Time Of His Death?

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes' husband, Gregg Leakes, died on September 1 at age 66, ET Online reported. Nene shared in June 2018 that Gregg had been diagnosed with colon cancer. In August 2021, NeNe said that her "husband [was] transitioning to the other side," via People.

"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," publicist Ernest Dukes said in a statement provided to ET Online. "We ask that you pray for peace and strength over their family & allow them to mourn in private during this very very difficult time."

Amid the news of Gregg's death, fans may be wondering what he left his wife and children, financially speaking. Here's what Gregg was worth when he died.

Gregg Leakes was a millionaire

While Gregg Leakes wasn't worth as much as his wife, NeNe Leakes, he had a healthy nest egg in his own right. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Gregg was worth $4 million at the time of his death. The outlet noted that Gregg's earnings came from the decades he spent working in real estate. (NeNe Leakes, meanwhile, is worth $14 million, thanks in large part to her reported $1 million-per-season salary on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," per Celebrity Net Worth.)

While Gregg and NeNe were on good terms at the time of his death, finances reportedly came between the couple at one point. In leaked audio from 2010, Gregg reportedly said, "I put $300,000 of my own money for [NeNe] to become a housewife. Without that, she wouldn't be sh**... She's going to give me every dime of my $300,000 back," via Reality Tea. Gregg later apologized for his statements.

Gregg and NeNe were married in 1997 and divorced in 2011, but they got back together and remarried in 2013, Variety noted.
