Nene Leakes Responds To Reports Her Husband Gregg Leakes Suffered A Stroke During "RHOA" Taping

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Nene Leakes recently teased Season 10 of the reality show, revealing there will be drama and revealing her husband Gregg Leakes had been dealing with health issues. 

There were claims that Gregg had suffered a stroke during taping of the show, but Nene has clapped back at the "lies" in a post on social media.

There were rumors that Gregg suffered a serious medical emergency during the taping of the hit reality TV series. 

RadarOnline's insider had claimed, "Gregg had what his doctors believe was a stroke. The RHOA cameras filmed the entire ordeal for the show — including his visit to the emergency room and the aftermath. Gregg’s health serves as a major storyline for Nene on season 10." 

The rumor began swirling and fans took note that Leakes' co-star, Kim Zolciak-Biermann, had recently shared a post about a stroke.

Thank you @briellebiermann for sending me this! I wanted to share it with you! As you know I had a stroke in Sept 2015 and when Brielle called Kroy to tell him something wasn't "right" with me I remember him yelling, "Brielle get her in the car NOW and take her to the hospital fast every minute count!" It's TRUE! And Im so thankful for everyone's quick thinking. I've never seen doctors/nurses move as fast as they did the second I was wheeled in. I'm so thankful for my medical team. I have almost fully recovered (sometimes my tongue slips when I speak, and sometimes I have the word on the tip of my tongue but it just doesnt come out) but I feel great!! I had my stroke at 37!! It can happen to anyone at any age!! When in doubt please always check it out!! 💋

However, Leakes hopped on social media to shoot down the fake reports. 

The reality star shared a screenshot of the  false report, writing in the caption, "We've gotten tons of text messages, calls and emails from concern family & friends because these lying [expletive] people don't take family in consideration when they Print [expletive]! NO Gregg has NEVER suffered a Stroke before! YES Gregg did get sick during filming. He drove his self to the ER. I wasn't even with him! See this is when I need people to put their thinking caps on (1)Gregg suffers a stroke (2)His doctors put him on bed rest (3)yet he's at a party on Saturday night😳🤣😂 let's just keep Gregg's health and mine too in prayer hunni. Lawd knows we need it🙃 PS: you can't even get sick these days and go to the ER without folks saying your dead 💀 #fakenews #lifeoftheleakes."

Leakes, who is returning to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" for Season 10, recently teased the new season and promised there would be plenty of drama. Nene was absent on the last season of "RHOA", but is making her return and promising a good season.

Nene filled fans of the show in on what to expect, revealing there will be plenty going on with her cast mates Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Sheree Whitfield, and Porsha Williams.

Nene says of the upcoming season, "We're shooting Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, honey... so there's a lot going on." She goes on to say, "The will have a lot of drama coming right for your [expletive], and tears, and relationship makeup and breakup — honey." 

The reality star mentioned that her store, Swagg Boutique, was doing really well before mentioning that her husband Gregg has been dealing with some medical problems. In a brief clip, Nene said, "My husband Gregg, as you guys know, he's my everything. We've been together for 20 years. We're dealing with a little bit of a health issue right now."       

She continued, "But prayers are going up, and fingers are crossed. And he's gonna be just fine."

Nene and Greg, who have been together for 20 years now, have faced many challenges in their relationship. The couple previously separated before getting back together and renewing their vows. Fans of "RHOA" have watched many of these moments in the lives of the couple on the reality show.

Without you Mr @greggleakes there is no me! Just know that I need you in my life always❤️ glad to have you back home with me #lifeoftheleakes
