Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes has addressed claims that her boyfriend cheated on his wife with her – after reportedly being named in a lawsuit.
The Bravo alum, 54, is currently dating Nyonisela Sioh, following the death of her late husband Gregg Leakes at the end of last year.
However, the RHOA favorite was reportedly hit with a lawsuit from his wife, Malomine Tehmeh-Sioh, who has claimed that they started dating while he was still married to her.
Appearing to address the drama during an Instagram Live session on Thursday, she encouraged fans to ‘show each other a little more love’.
In true NeNe fashion, she told followers, via Us Weekly: ‘I’m already out here a husband stealer and this is too much. And ain’t nobody out here stealing husbands. Are they? I would never.
‘Nobody want to steal nobody else’s problems, honey.’

NeNe’s love life was thrown back into the spotlight this week after it was claimed that her boyfriend’s wife had filed a lawsuit against her.
According to reports, Malomine is seeking $100,000 in damages after alleging that the Apprentice US star caused her emotional distress, mental anguish, and a loss of affection – which led to the end of their marriage.
TMZ reports that NeNe posted multiple pictures with Nyonisela on social media, which caused his partner to be humiliated, and seek legal action.
The case was filed in North Carolina, which is one of only a handful of states where a person is able to sue someone else over their partner’s ‘alienation of affection’.
This law allows a person to sue for ‘wrongful acts that deprived them of the love and affection of their spouse’ – and is usually directed towards a spouse’s extramarital partner.
NeNe and Nyonisela made their relationship public knowledge in December, 2021, shortly after the death of her husband – who died in November following a battle with colon cancer.
They reportedly met through ex RHOA star Peter Thomas, and have been inseparable ever since.
She later shared photos on Instagram as they celebrated her birthday together on Instagram.
