Nene Leakes Makes It IG Official With Her New Man

“We’re dating! We’re friends,” the former ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star confirmed.

Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes has made it Instagram official with her new man.

According to The Root, Leakes is exclusively dating Liberian entrepreneur Nyonisela Sioh, the couture suit king. Sioh owns Nyoni Couture, a couture suit company, in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Celebrating her 54th birthday earlier this month with her loved ones with a party put on by her son Brentt, Leakes and her beau Sioh snapped a photo with RHOA alum Porsha Williams and her fiancé Simon Goubadia.

In a recent conversation with The Shaderoom, Leakes confirmed that she and Sioh were an item.

“We’re dating! We’re friends.” she told the outlet.

She also confirmed that her late husband Gregg Leakes had given his blessing over the relationship before his passing.

“I will love Gregg forever & ever! Grieving is hard! Even harder & depressing alone. Gregg and I had a very tearful conversation before his passing. His words to me were “be happy, keep smiling and he who finds you, has found a good one,” she said.

Leakes and Sioh were recently spotted showing a bit of PDA in Miami in a now-viral video while they celebrated Sioh’s birthday.

Gregg Leakes died on Sept. 1, 2021, after losing his battle with colon cancer. The 66-year-old was first diagnosed in 2018 and was then in remission for two years before his cancer returned in June 2021.
