Nene Reflects On Her Health History
The TV star reflected on her health during one of her Facetime moments. Per E! News, some years ago, she had blood clots in her lungs which stirred the speculation that the disease might be genetic. Nene’s health panic started after Gregg Leakes (Brentt’s father) died of colon cancer at the age of 66.
Nene Leakes however stated that Brentt was a bit stressed out during Gregg’s First Anniversary after his death.
Although, she shared that she doesn’t know if stress has a part to play in his health conditions but the doctors have disproved that assumption.
Also, Doctors have wondered if drugs or an infection led to Brentt’s stroke and heart failure but the reality TV star made it clear that her son doesn’t drink or do drugs.
