Prayers up for reality star NeNe Leakes‘ younger son, Brentt Leakes, who suffered a stroke and congestive heart failure two weeks ago.
The former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star confirmed the news about her son’s health with fans and eliminated much speculation on what could have been the reason for the ailments.
NeNe said doctors ruled out the possibility of anything related to drugs, HIV, COVID-19 or weight issues, adding that they did weigh in on the possibility of it being genetic. As a reminder, NeNe was treated for blood clots on her lungs in 2013.
“So, they have run a number of tests on him to see what could have possibly made this happen to him,” NeNe explained. “And we are still trying to figure out. Because if we knew the cause, obviously they could treat the cause. It was very scary.”
Brentt, who is only 23 years old, may have somewhat of a long road to recovery. His loving mother shared with fans that he is struggling with speaking but is showing improvement.

The Leakes family has endured a great deal of heartache over the past year.
NeNe’s husband and Brentt’s father, Gregg Leakes, who was known as a rock, died after a long battle with cancer.
Brentt, his brother Bryson and his father were all featured on RHOA as NeNe rose to fame.
We wish him a full and speedy recovery.
