The Truth About NeNe Leakes' Two Sons

Reality television star NeNe Leakes shared just about every aspect of her drama-filled life during her many years on Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." However, throughout her time on the show, it appeared that Leakes preferred to keep her two sons, Bryson and Brentt, mostly out of the spotlight. Although "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" alumni's children did make the occasional appearance on the series, viewers never really got to know too much about them, especially after their mother left the Bravo hit. So, what is the truth about Leakes' two sons? 

According to Distractify, Leakes' oldest son, Bryson, was featured in the earlier seasons of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." In Season 3, it was revealed that Bryson had been arrested and kicked out of the family home. The following year, during the fourth season of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," Bryson returned home to Leakes after being in prison, and it was later revealed that he had welcomed a baby girl, Bri'Asia, who also appeared on the show. 

Although not very active on social media, Bryson does occasionally share updates of his life on Instagram, where he describes himself as a music producer, a manager, an aspiring actor, and a father and "family man."

Nene Leakes' younger son Brentt is much more active on social media

According to AmoMama, Bryson is not the biological son of NeNe's late husband, Gregg Leakes. However, Gregg adopted his wife's eldest son Bryson during their marriage. 

Fans of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" may also remember NeNe and Gregg's younger son, Brentt, who also made several appearances on the hit reality show. Unlike his older brother, Brentt is very active on social media and describes himself on Instagram as "the youngest club owner" of The Linnethia Lounge.

As People reported, Bryson and Brentt's father, Gregg, sadly passed away from cancer at the age of 66 on September 1, 2021. Writing on Instagram shortly after his father's death, Brentt, who is the biological son of NeNe and Gregg, shared a throwback photograph of himself and his late father. "Damn i miss my daddy. Rest Up Pop, Love You," he wrote in an accompanying caption.

Sharing details of Gregg's final moments to People, NeNe revealed that Bryson and Brentt were present when their father passed away. "The last five days before his passing was really beautiful ... All of his children were there. His best friends were there. Our closest friends were there. We all sat with him around the clock," she shared.
