NeNe Leakes, the original Real Housewives of Atlanta, experienced the tragic loss of her husband of more than 20 years, Gregg Leakes died to colon cancer in September 2021. Since then, NeNe has been candid about how much she misses Gregg and her difficulty letting go.
Nonetheless, NeNe stated her wish to fall in love once more a few months after her husband’s passing. Despite the fact that she is still in sorrow for Gregg, the Bravo alum did discover a prospective match in Charlotte: a dapper businessman who appears to have a complicated background.
Who Is Nene Leakes Dating?
NeNe revealed that Peter Thomas had introduced her to one of his pals in Charlotte during a December 2021 visit to The Real.
“I went out with my girlfriends, and we met up with various folks. According to Bossip, NeNe said, “One of my friends, Peter, introduced me to someone, and we just talked like, ‘Hello,’ and whatever. Someone was introduced to me by one of my girlfriends. You guys, dating is hard. I don’t know how y’all do it!”
The mysterious stranger turned out to be Nyonisela Sioh, a menswear designer. Nyonisela is a Liberian native who operates a couture suit business, according to TMZ.
With the release of photos from the star’s 54th birthday celebration on social media, rumors regarding NeNe and Nyonisela’s relationship began to spread. Bryce, NeNe’s son, surprised his mother by throwing her a birthday party at Linnethia Lounge, one of her favorite hangouts.
According to a video taken by The Shade Room during the party, people observed NeNe dancing with Nyonisela. After the party, the couple made their Instagram account public, and she frequently shares photos of their time spent together there. NeNe took a picture of her new beau cheering her on as she appeared on The Real in February 2022.

Nyonisela Sioh, NeNe Leakes’ Lover, Is Supposedly Already Married
It appears that NeNe’s newfound passion for Nyonisela might not endure for very long. The businesswoman, according to TMZ, was married to Malomine Tehmeh-Sioh, who allegedly says that the couple started dating while Nyonisela and Malomine were still legally wed.
Malomine intends to sue NeNe for $100,000 because she reportedly caused her marriage hardship. An occurrence like a potential affair is cause for a lawsuit in North Carolina. Malomine asserted that NeNe and Nyonisela had relations while he was still her husband.
She also claimed that the reality star’s Instagram pictures and videos of their trips and dinner dates hurt her and Nyonisela’s family in an irreparable way. Nyonisela Jr., the couple’s kid, is frequently seen on his father’s social media.
Some RHOA followers on Twitter expressed their disbelief at the announcement of NeNe’s second lawsuit of 2022. Many users felt bad for her because she might be grieving and experiencing heartbreak at the same time.
One commenter, however, brought up how NeNe made fun of Kim Zolciak-Biermann, a fellow RHOA alum, for also being involved with a married man in the earlier seasons. NeNe famously advised Kim to “shut your legs to married guys” while she was having an affair with Lee “Big Poppa” Najjar, as most devoted fans would recall.
