NeNe Leakes Says She 'Had a Real Breakdown' After Rape Joke Backlash

13 October 2017

The Fashion Police panelist (born Linnethia Johnson) just issued a formal apology for telling a heckler she "hoped she got raped by her Uber driver" onstage Oakland's Paramount Theatre Saturday.

Kim Zolciak-Biermann's new attorney Allison Hart reportedly threatened to sue her TRHOA castmate NeNe Leakes for "millions" unless she issued a formal apology for a since-deleted Instagram post.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta frenemies have been clashing recently on social media after NeNe slammed Kim's eldest daughter Brielle Biermann on Instagram due to a Snapchat video of the 20-year-old in NeNe's home, where roaches can be seen on the floor.

"As a result, we have made a decision to no longer proceed with her participation on our tour". They also wished NeNe the best as she "navigates this very hard period".

Fast-forward almost a week, and Xscape has dropped Leakes. "Our hearts go out to all female victims and we stand with you!"

"This tour is for and about our fans and we want to provide an entertaining and enjoyable experience for every single person who attends", Xscape said in a statement released on Thursday morning. It literally took me somewhere else. "And steal yo' funky hello kitty, bitch". "I truly regret and apologize for what I said from the stage in Oakland over the weekend", the reality star wrote on Monday, October 9.

Leakes famously Wednesday her real estate investor husband Gregg twice (in 1997 and 2013), and they have two sons Brentt, 18, and Bryson, 27. Her friend responds, "You said it in a moment of passion". I gotta talk to all the other girls who are out on the road with me, you know, about what we - I guess we're gonna have meetings about what we talk about.

The reality star was set to join the singers on the road as the show's host, along with Tamar Braxton and Monica. "You had to stoop so low and be so disgusting #racisttrash #jealous #KKK #thirsty You better run yo ass back to a child's place #youwannaactgrown?" wrote Leakes at the time.

She has apologized for her careless offensive comment, but it still costs her her hosting gig on Xscape's tour.
