NeNe Leakes has revealed the heartbreakingly beautiful last words her husband Gregg said to her before he died.

Gregg Leakes died on September 1 at the age of 66 following a four-year battle with colon cancer and the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 53, has now opened up about Gregg’s final words.

She told People: ‘The last five days before his passing was really beautiful. All of his children were there. His best friends were there. Our closest friends were there.

‘We all sat with him around the clock. We talked a lot, and we made peace with what was happening.’

She revealed the last thing he told her was: ‘”I’m not going to leave you. God is going to bless you.” He said he wanted me to move on with my life.’

Her last words to him were: ‘I told him I wouldn’t have chosen another husband other than him. I said, “I married you twice, crazy man.”’

NeNe had been Gregg’s carer since he was diagnosed with cancer and admitted it was ‘difficult’ at first as he had handled most of the admin around the house, adding: ‘I didn’t even know who the lawn guy was.

‘I was having to ask him questions like that. And he said to me, “If you go into my office and look on the wall, I left an envelope taped to the wall.”’

Gregg had put all the details of everything to do with the house in a manilla folder on the wall, such as who to speak to about their accounts as well as a letter to their 22-year-old son Brentt.

Nene added: ‘And I thought to myself when I looked through all the stuff that he had written and the things that he had left, that that took a lot of strength.’

She revealed that she was by his side when he died, thinking she would be scared when it happened but she simply held and kissed him when he had taken his final breath.

‘I keep thinking to myself he’s away on a trip and he’ll be right back,’ she admitted. ‘I’m still waiting for him to come home.’
