Nene Leakes‘ boyfriend, Nyonisela Sioh, has filed for divorce from his wife, Malomine Tehmeh-Sioh, amid Malomine’s ongoing lawsuit against the former Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member.
Months after Malomine sued Nene for over $100,000, accusing her of sleeping with Nyonisela and ruining their marriage, Nyonisela is requesting a dissolution of their marriage and an equitable distribution of their assets.
On November 15, TMZ shared details of Nyonisela’s court documents, revealing he confirmed he and Malomine had been married since 2016 and share one child. He also noted that they separated on September 19, 2021, months before he and Nene were first photographed together in December of that year. Nyonisela also said they’ve been living separately ever since because their breakup was always meant to be permanent.
As RHOA fans may recall, Malomine filed a lawsuit against Nene in June, claiming the ex-reality star was a homewrecker and accusing Nene of causing her emotional distress.
Following Malomine’s filing, Nene spoke to Entertainment Tonight, saying she was being “dragged into something that is just not [her] business.”
“They have their own legal thing that’s going on. I shouldn’t be brought into it, that’s all. So, I really have no feelings about it. I really think that it’s something that [Nyonisela] has to handle himself,” she said at the time.
But according to Malomine, she and her estranged husband “enjoyed a genuine happy marital relationship, in which some degree of love, affection, society, companionship, comfort, friendship and favorable mental attitude existed between them” before Nene’s “wrongful interference and conduct.”
Also during her chat with Entertainment Tonight, Nene said she’s “still grieving” the loss of late husband Gregg Leakes, who died of cancer in September 2021.
“This person was in my life for 25 years. I see things that remind me of him,” she revealed. “One person told me that lost her husband and she said, ‘You know, just always talk about it if you see it. Don’t keep anything in.’ So my circle is really OK with me bringing up Gregg or talking about Gregg. So many of us know him ’cause he was around for so long and you can’t just forget about somebody like that after 25 years. I’ve never had anybody die that close to me.”
“That was a really trying time,” she added.
