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,” Us Weekly reported. “We ask that you pray for peace and strength over their family & allow them to mourn in private during this very very difficult time.”
