Nene Leakes' Boyfriend Files For Divorce From Estranged Wife

NeNe Leakes’ Boyfriend Files For Divorce Months After Estranged Wife Filed $100,000 ‘Homewrecker’ Lawsuit

Nyonisela Sioh is ready to cut ties with his estranged wife, Malomine Tehmeh-Sioh. The fashion designer and entrepreneur filed for divorce just months after Malomine filed a ‘homewrecker’ lawsuit against his celebrity girlfriend, NeNe Leakes.

According to TMZ, Nyonisela cited his separation date from Malomine as September 19, 2021. In the divorce docs, he claims there’s been no marital relations or co-living since that date. Nyonisela also says he always intended the separation to be permanent.

It appears Nyonisela had no choice but to wait to file the docs, given that North Carolina requires separation for at least one year and six months of residing in the state before filing.

And What About Malomine’s Lawsuit Against NeNe? 

His filing could affect his estranged wife’s ongoing legal claims against NeNe. As previously reported, Malomine filed against the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star in June. She blames NeNe for the collapse of their “genuine happy marital relationship” and “active sexual relationship.”

Additionally, Malomine claims that NeNe and Nyonisela were involved before the separation, which she listed as December 17, 2021. Malomine says Leakes and Sioh “engaged in an ongoing romantic, uninhibited and adulterous affair without [her] knowledge or consent.” 

But, it remains unclear when NeNe and Nyonisela began their romance. In December 2021, questions started swirling around the pair when cameras captured them snuggling and dancing at NeNe’s 54th birthday. NeNe shared images of the celebration, some featuring Sioh, on December 15–two days before Malomine’s alleged separation date.

Days later, she exclusively confirmed to The Shade Room that she and Nyonisela were “dating” and “friends.”

NeNe also revealed that her late husband Gregg Leakes gave his blessing for her to move on before his passing. Gregg died on September 1, 2021, after battling colon cancer.

“I will love Gregg forever & ever,” NeNe told The Shade Room. “Grieving is hard, even harder and depressing alone. Gregg and I had a very tearful conversation before his passing. His words to me were, “be happy, keep smiling, and he who finds you has found a good one.”

On December 17, the same day she confirmed her taken status, NeNe and Nyonisela were seen kissing on video while celebrating his birthday in Miami.

But in her lawsuit, Malomine claims that the “intimate photos” NeNe shared on December 15 sparked her emotional distress. She says they caused her “embarrassment, humiliation, and disgrace.”

The estranged wife is seeking $100,000 in damages for “alienation of affections” and “criminal conversation.” Following news of the suit, the reality TV icon seemingly denied the ‘homewrecker’ claims while on Instagram Live.

“We love y’all. So much is going on in the world, let’s just try to show each other a little more love,” NeNe said. “And I really mean that from the bottom of my heart, it’s a lot going on in the world. I’m already out here husband stealing…And ain’t nobody out here stealing husbands are they? I wouldn’t know.”

Nyonisela also shared a post after the lawsuit news broke. He seemed to be defending his new bae and shading his soon-to-be ex-wife.

“The best u can do to urself in life’s not to allow negative people to bring u down to their level, just maintain your self-respect and keep away from them. Know that u can’t hang out with negative people and expect to live a positive life. Don’t forget that the less u respond to negative people, like my separated,” Nyonisela wrote.

Now, months later, he’s seeking to dissolve the marriage with Malomine ASAP and go ’bout his way with an “equitable distribution of their assets” in tow.
