After much speculation, NeNe Leakes has confirmed she’s got a new beau. 

The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star sparked romance rumors when she shared some photos of herself alongside a man TMZ identified as businessman Nyonisela Sioh — and, in this case, turns out the rumors were true!

“We’re dating! We’re friends,” NeNe, 54, told The Shade Room

The reality star’s new romance comes more than three months after she lost her husband of 20 years, Greg Leakes, to cancer.

“I will love Gregg forever & ever! Grieving is hard! Even harder & depressing alone,” she shared.

NeNe also opened up and revealed that she had a “tearful conversation” with her late husband before his passing about her moving on. 

“His words to me were ‘be happy, keep smiling and he who finds you, has found a good one,'” she said.
