has reportedly lost her posh 5-bedroom home. She and her real estate investor husband, Greg Leakes, moved out of their residence after they were given an eviction notice for failing to pay $ 6,240 in rent. The couple was said to have left the Duluth, GA house, which was featured in the Bravo reality TV series, in November.
According to several sources, Winwood properties filed an eviction notice last September. The house's broker, Daryl Pierce, revealed what supposedly happened. The notice informed the public that “The tenant said they would move by Sept. 14th because they could no longer afford the house.”
Despite those reports, NeNe Leakes remained rational enough to provide her insight on the matter. She called the stories “a huge misunderstanding and grossly inaccurate.” Leakes wrote a number of e-mails as well as on the Bravo TV blog about the situation.
Leakes continued by saying that the Duluth home “was a lease purchase corporate deal with Greg & his company. Things didn't work out between the two of them so they did what they had to do and he did what he had to do.” She even added that her name didn't appear on the eviction notice at all, and that “you don't know my relationship with Greg so be careful what you report!”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta
celebrity maintained that she was not forced out of the home. She wrote on the blog, “Unfortunately, there are many families who are facing real foreclosures and real evictions. That is not and never was the case with us.”
“Without wasting time on the details, the only thing I will say is that we were NOT evicted. Everybody knows that I like to be honest, real and upfront. If something was wrong, I would tell you!”
She goes on to write: “I am truly blessed to enjoy a wonderful life and lifestyle. We have indeed moved to another home, but we did so on our own free will. We live in an absolutely beautiful home, and we are fortunate to be able to live in the place of our choice.”
