The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes may want the world to think that she is making big bucks and running various successful companies, but things may not be as peachy at home behind closed doors. While NeNe and Gregg are doing well after remarrying, Leakes continues to have troubles with her oldest son.
NeNe Leakes expressed shock when she learned that her son, Bryant, had gotten a girlfriend pregnant. In addition, he has struggled with school, keeping a job and keeping his curfew as documented on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. He recently served time behind bars, which wasn’t pleasing for NeNe.
According to a new Radar Online report, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes may be keeping some secrets for him. It is possible that girls are taking advantage of him because of who NeNe is. Now, stories have surfaced, saying that Bryant actually has more children, meaning Leakes has more than one grandchild. But Leakes isn’t necessarily stepping up.
“It’s just a sad situation,” Bryant’s ex Marina Robinson has revealed about the situation, pointing out that NeNe Leakes hasn’t acknowledged this grandchild the same way as she did Bri’asia back in 2012.
But there is some overlap in the relationships. While NeNe became a grandmother in 2012, it was Bryant who stepped out his daughter’s mother, Ashley Hill. He supposedly met Robinson in an Atlanta club in 2012, and by early 2013, she was expecting a child with him. Things quickly went downhill, and NeNe Leakes supposedly didn’t know about the pregnancy when it first happened.
“I would go back and fourth from Mobile, Alabama to Atlanta, Georgia in between my doctor appointments, but he wasn’t there for her birth,” she explains, adding, “[And] NeNe didn’t know I was pregnant. He [Bryson] didn’t want me to tell her.”
NeNe Leakes found out about the pregnancy when her son was charged with a DUI in the summer of 2013.
“I immediately went down there and I was six months pregnant, and she knew,” she reveals of NeNe’s behavior, adding that Leakes wasn’t exactly thrilled with the news, saying, “Then when I get to Atlanta she said only family could visit him. It was uncomfortable for me. She had attitude, she tried to disrespect me, disown me. She was pretty much like ‘you’re not part of the family.’ There was a lot of shade being thrown.”
It may not take much for NeNe Leakes to give her grandchildren some special attention, but Leakes isn’t too pleased in doing so. Apparently, Bryant may have more children, including two additional sons. Nothing has been confirmed, but for Marina, she just wants some acceptance.
“What killed me was … [NeNe] accepted Brayden and she’s helped out with all of them, but she’s not helping with Bria,” Robinson said, adding, “NeNe wanted a DNA test, but nothing has been done. I wanted one done, period, so we wouldn’t go through it again. But they keep pushing it back and not pursuing it.”
According to the Inquisitr, NeNe Leakes has often showed off Bri’asia as her granddaughter, but apparently, she has done little for the other child, Bria. Instead, Leakes has been focusing on spreading the word about her business ventures, including her recent clothing line.
What do you think of NeNe Leakes’ big secret? Are you surprised she is keeping these things to herself?
