Ne Ne Leakes, your favorite housewife on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta, recently faced the recession head on. The breakout star of the popular show and her husband, real estate investor Gregory Leakes were recently evicted from the 5,000-square-foot, 5-bedroom home shown on the hit Bravo series. Per the AJC, the couple received notice, filed Sept. 24, which claimed that they owed $6,240 in past rent.
The notice, filed Sept. 24 with the Magistrate Court of Gwinnett County, said Greg Leakes owed $6,240 in past due rent. “The tenant said they would move by Sept. 14th because they could no longer afford the house,” the notice said.
The owner of the home, Kajani Shenaz Ali, lives overseas, Pierce said. Online records show the home in the gated community of Stonebrier at Sugarloaf, was purchased for $829,400 in September 2006. Pierce said the Leakeses moved into the home shortly after it was built in 2006.
NeNe Leakes, in a series of e-mails Tuesday, would not say where she is living now. “It’s none of your business,” she wrote. But she noted that they “are financial able [sic] and stable to live where ever we feel fits.”
NeNe, 41, wrote that the eviction notice does not have her name on it, adding “you don’t know my relationship with Greg so be careful what you report!”
The Duluth home, she wrote in an e-mail late last week, “was a lease purchase corporate deal with Greg & his company. Things didn’t work out between the two of them so they did what they had to do and he did what he had to do.”
On Tuesday, she wrote, “If we rent, lease purchase or buy, money is still coming out of my pocket. So who’s [sic] business is that??” (Source)
NeNe girl…don’t you know that a lease/purchase is just a rental with a higher deposit??? SMH. I love these chicks, but it seems like the only true ballers in the group are DeShawn & Lisa. Kim’s Big Papa won’t even buy her a new wig and Sheree’s still fighting for a piece of Whitfield that pie.
