Gregg Leakes died “peacefully” on September 1st following a strenuous bout with booty cancer. He was 66. Ernest Dukes, their publicist and longtime friend, issued a statement. “Today the Leakes family is in deep pain with a broken heart,” he wrote. “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. We ask that you pray for peace and strength over their family & allow them to mourn in private during this very very difficult time.”
