Earlier news broke that Nene Leakes’ son Brentt Leakes, unfortunately, suffered a heart attack and stroke at the age of 23-years-old. It was shared that he has since left the hospital and is now in rehab as he recovers.
After the unfortunate news began to make its rounds, Nene took to her Instagram story to thank everyone for their prayers, as well as share a few details about what happened, and also how Brentt is currently doing.
While sitting in her car, Nene said,
“Two weeks ago today, Brentt had congestive heart failure and a stroke. He’s only 23, so he’s really young for something like that to happen to him. The first thing a lot of doctors think of when someone that age comes in with that kind of condition is maybe they have done drugs or maybe have some serious infection, maybe HIV or some sort of infection is what I’m being told by the doctors.”
Nene acknowledged that Brentt doesn’t drink or do drugs, and said that doctors tested him for those things as well as HIV. She shared that doctors also thought COVID-19 may have been the cause of his condition, but she nor Brentt do not recall him contracting the virus. However, doctors are not quite sure what the cause could have been.
Nene also addressed her lounge, which she also owns with her son Brentt. She shared that there is a possibility that they may sell the lounge.
The lounge was a business venture she entered with Brentt, her late husband Gregg, and some of her friends. Running the lounge is a responsibility Brentt took on, but following his health scare, he isn’t able to do so at the moment. As previously reported, TMZ shared that Brentt was rushed to a local hospital in the Atlanta area earlier this month to receive treatment for both his heart attack and stroke. He was hospitalized for several days before entering rehab for recovery.
As many of you know, Brentt is Nene’s son with her late husband Gregg Leakes. Gregg, unfortunately, passed away last August following a battle with cancer.
We continue to send well wishes to Brentt Leakes during this time.
