Nene Leakes has had a rough couple of years. Last year, The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum lost her husband Gregg Leakes to colon cancer, and most recently her son Brentt tragically suffered a stroke and congestive heart failure at just 24 years old. He’s currently recovering in a rehabilitation center, which Leakes says will be a long road. Now, she’s unsure if it’s best to keep her Georgia lounge open while she’s tending to her child.
Nene's star studded lounge
Leakes opened The Linnethia Lounge in 2020 in the suburban city of Duluth. The lounge has hosted her famous friends, including Tamar Braxton, Waka Flaka, The Migos, and More. Patrons frequent the club for live entertainment, food, and industry events. She previously revealed it was a dream of her and Gregg’s to open a supper club.

Amid all of the personal struggles she’s dealing with, the added stress of running the business is taking its toll.
When speaking to The Larry Reid Show, Leakes explained she wants to sell it. “We have sat and talked about selling the lounge now because it’s something that Brentt runs along with me.

“We have sat and talked about selling the lounge now because it’s something that Brent runs along with me," she said.
“I got in the business with him and Gregg and some other friends to do it. And this is just a lot right now on me,” she explained, as reported by Atlanta Black Star. “So if there’s anybody out there that’s possibly interested in the lounge, send them my way if they are interested in purchasing. It’s very possible that we will sell the lounge because it is something I shared with Brent after Gregg’s passing.”
