AceShowbiz - NeNe Leakes and her boyfriend Nyonisela Sioh reportedly have taken their relationship to another level. If a new report is to be believed, the former star of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" is engaged to the fashion designer even though he's still married to his estranged wife Malomine Tehmeh-Sioh.
NeNe seemingly announced the happy news on her Facebook account. Alongside a picture of her showing off what seemed to be her engagement ring, the reality TV star wrote in the caption, "IT'S OFFICIAL! [ring and heart emoji]." The post, however, has since been deleted from her page.
The engagement is shocking considering the drama between the couple and Malomine, with whom Nyonisela shares a minor child together. The 60-year-old filed for divorce from his estranged wife in 2022 after six years of marriage and subsequently sued Nene for "stealing" her husband.
Malomine claimed NeNe's social media posts, which often feature her husband, cause her emotional distress, mental anguish and a loss of affection. Malomine filed the lawsuit in North Carolina, where a person can sue a spouse's extramarital partner for alienation of affection. She's seeking more than $100,000 in damages for the downfall of her marriage.
In response to the lawsuit, NeNe previously stressed that she shouldn't have been "dragged into" legal drama between the exes because she had nothing to do with it. "I feel like it's their business and not mine, right?" the 54-year-old told Entertainment Tonight back in June. "I feel like I was dragged into something that is just not my 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," the TV personality doubled down on her statement. "I really think that it's something that [Nyonisela] has to handle himself."
NeNe also laughed off at the lawsuit in a live broadcast. "I'm already out here a husband stealer and this is too much," the "Glee" alum said during the live broadcast. Addressing the matter during a light conversation, she went on declaring, "Nobody want to steal nobody else's problems honey."
