Gregg Leakes was born on the 18th August 1954 in Brooklyn, New York City, New York, USA, and is a businessman, particularly a real estate investor and a consultant, but he is probably best known to the world for being a husband of NeNe Leakes, an actress who is widely known for starring in Bravo’s reality TV show “Real Housewives Of Atlanta”.
Have you ever wondered how rich is Gregg Leakes? According to sources as of early 2017, it is estimated that the overall amount of Leakes’ net worth is over $3.5 million, which has been accumulated through his career in business. However, a huge influence on increasing his net worth was the exposure he received through his marriage to a famous actress, and appearances with her in one very popular show.
Gregg Leakes Net Worth $3.5 Million
Gregg Leakes was brought up by his parents in New York. Later, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where he started his own business. He embarked on a career as a real estate agent, eventually carving his way from Atlanta across the whole of the USA. In his 20 year-long career, Gregg built up his interests in the real estate business, as an investor, and consultant. However, he has been much better known to the public as the husband of one of the stars of Bravo’s reality TV series entitled “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”, NeNe Leakes.
His net worth and popularity increased as well with the popularity of the show, as he was featured in a number of episodes, as Nene’s husband. Gregg and Nene met as early as 1996, while NeNe was still working as a stripper in Atlanta. They immediately hit it off, and in no time became engaged, and in 1997 the couple married for the first time; and their only child was born in 1999, a son named Brentt. They certainly had some troubles in marriage, at one point aired very publicly over the radio waves when Gregg spoke ‘live’ to a local program presenter, but the marriage lasted until 2010, and by that time Gregg’s net worth multiplied a couple of times. Regardless, the divorce went through – possibly a rather clever publicity stunt, as Gregg and NeNe apparently settled their differences and remarried in 2013. The wedding ceremony was shown in a seven episode documentary special, entitled “I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding”, which was aired on Bravo Network, and obviously contributed to the net worth of both of them.
Before he married NeNe, Gregg Leakes is known to have welcomed five children from a previous, unspecified relationship. He has twins Daryl and Damien, Katrina, Dexter and Denton. In free time he is active on his Twitter account, on which he has over 38,000 followers. Gregg currently resides with his wife in Atlanta, Georgia, although rumours abound of the possibility of a second divorce!
