NeNe Leakes says that she’s been “dragged into” drama by her boyfriend’s wife’s lawsuit.
Malomine Tehmeh-Sioh recently sued the former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star over an alleged affair, and NeNe Leakes doesn’t understand why she’s being “dragged into” Nyonisela Sioh’s problems with his ex-wife.
“It seems like it should be their problem, not mine, right?” Leakes talked about their court case on Entertainment Tonight. “I feel like I’ve been dragged into something that has nothing to do with me. They have their own thing going on with the law. All I’m saying is that I shouldn’t be brought into it. So, I don’t feel anything about it. I really think [Nyonisela] needs to take care of it himself.”
Malomine sued Leakes in North Carolina on May 23. She said that a tryst was the reason she and her husband, Nyonisela, broke up.
According to court documents, the two “engaged in an ongoing romantic, unrestrained, and adulterous affair without the knowledge or consent” of his wife. She also says that Sioh, a designer of clothes, “has repeatedly lied to [her] about where he was.”
The lawsuit says, “Because [Leakes] and [Sioh] had an extramarital affair, the love and affection between [Tehmeh-Sioh] and [Sioh] was alienated, separated, and destroyed.”
Since then, Leakes has denied that she is a “husband stealer.” On Instagram Live, she said, “Ain’t nobody out here stealing husbands. Is that so? I never would.”
Tehmeh-Sioh is suing Leakes for “alienation of affections” and “criminal conversation” for a total of $100,000.
Gregg Leakes died of colon cancer in the fall of 2021. It took Leakes only three months to start dating again.
