Nene Leakes reveals she is considering selling her lounge after her son’s stroke
Last month, Nene Leakes’ son, Brentt Leakes, tragically suffered a stroke. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star shares the 23-year-old girl with her late husband Gregg Leakes. Gregg passed away on September 1, 2021 after years of battling colon cancer.
As previously reported, Leakes confirmed the news about her son on her Instagram Story after viral reports were shared online. The 54-year-old explained in a video that Brentt “had congestive heart failure and a stroke.”
She mentioned her son’s “serious” condition and his difficulty speaking. She said doctors tested for COVID-19 and suspected him of drug use because of his age.
Later in the video, the “Uncle Drew” star hinted that she may not be able to keep up her club, the Linnethia Lounge. The restaurant has been open for two years outside of Atlanta in the city of Duluth. She has hosted her famous friends including Trina, Waka Flocka, Migos, Tamar Braxton, Jazzy Pha and more. Patrons come for live entertainment, delicious brunch and industry-style events. But due to the condition of her son, the Linnethia Lounge may close its doors sooner or later.
“We sat down and talked about selling the lounge now because it’s something Brentt carries with me. I went into the business with him and Gregg and some other friends to do it. And that’s just a lot for me right now,” Leakes explained. “So if there is anyone who might be interested in the lounge, send them to me if they are interested in purchasing. There’s a very good chance we’ll sell the lounge because I shared it with Brent after Gregg died.”
Brentt first appeared on “RHOA” in 2008 as a 9-year-old. He continued to appear regularly on the Bravo series throughout his teenage years. As an adult he worked at the Linnethia Lounge.
Prior to Brentt’s health crisis, legal papers were served on his mother after she failed to pay a photographer for her work. As previously reported, a company called Photography by Ace filed a lawsuit in Gwinnett County, Georgia, in July. They claim their attempts to contact and collect Leakes went unanswered, and presented two bills from 2021 as evidence. It’s unclear if Leakes responded or if the case was resolved.
