Scroll for the video. NeNe had shared a "broken" post just before Gregg passed as she made it clear her husband was in his final days.

The hard-hitting reality star, who said Gregg was "transitioning to the other side" in late August, posted footage of herself and Gregg dancing to Johnny Gill's "It Would Be You." With her arms wrapped around Gregg, she was seen tenderly kissing him - the caption, meanwhile, came as a string of heart emoji - no words.

Gregg, first diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer in 2018 and seems to make some headway with recovery as he went into remission, received bad news in June as his cancer returned. On August 29, NeNe told her Instagram followers she was struggling to cope with Gregg "dying" - Gregg's loss is also marked by son Brentt, 22.

The video has brought in fans and celebrities alike. Over 1.7 million views have been clocked, with comments coming in from Tamar Braxton and Porsha Williams. More after it.

Gregg's passing was announced by his publicist, who stated: "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."

"We ask that you pray for peace and strength over their family & allow them to mourn in private during this very very difficult time," they added. NeNe had been speaking out, too.

Whole 'House Has Cancer'

NeNe had, in late 2018, opened up on how Gregg's cancer had affected her household. Speaking to People, the serial entrepreneur said: "It's been a big transition for Gregg and I and our entire family."

"To learn that Gregg has cancer? Our lives just changed that day. Our whole routine changed. Just … everything changed. I don't have cancer. Gregg has cancer. But I feel like our whole house has cancer," she added.

Since Gregg's passing, Leakes has also gained support from stars including Kyle Richards and Giuliana Rancic.
