Gregg Leakes Makes Statement (And Apologizes) For Leaked Audio About His Wife NeNe

Gregg Leakes just issued a statement today regarding that leaked audio where he was telling his friend/radio host Corey King about his divorce and marital woes with ATL Housewife NeNe and their financial woes.  Gregg went and hired PR people to clean his mess up.  Couldn't he have used that money to pay Corey back, since owing him money is what got him into this situation to begin with?  

 

We're also told that the radio host is releasing some very personal credit information of Gregg's today.

Gregg says he didn't know the convo with Corey King of Large FM was being taped.  And he says it was a personal conversation with friend, not an interview.  But he's not denying that he and NeNe are facing divorce and are riding down Brokeville Lane.  Here's Gregg's statement, legal threat, and apology:

On June 2, 2010, an unauthorized audio taped conversation between Mr. Gregg Leakes and Mr. Corey King was made privy to the public by Mr. King and Large FM.  While Mr. King touted an "exclusive interview", the taped recording was obtained by fraud and deception.  Neither Mr. King nor Large FM were granted consent to interview Mr. Leakes and an interview never occurred.

Throughout the duration of the call with Mr. King, Mr. Leakes was under the impression that  he was simply confiding in a friend after an argument with his wife.  However, Mr. King has demonstrated through this blatant disregard of Mr. Leakes' privacy that he does not even comprehend the word "friend".  The audio recording was deceptive and the release of it was nothing short of malicious.

It is not a secret to anyone that Mr. and Mrs. Leakes are facing marital challenges, a situation common to many couples.  However, there is no doubt that Mr. King's intentions were dishonorable, hateful, and inexcusable.  His deceptive act was committed without any regard to Mr. or Mrs. Leakes.

Mr. Leakes, acting on the advice of his attorneys, has issued a "Ceast and Desist Order" to Large FM and other media outlets, concerning the broadcasting of the unauthorized, so-called "exclusive Interview".  Although Georgia is a one-party consent state, Mr. King still may have violated several federal and state regulations, including the Wiretap Act, the Privacy Act, the Privacy Protection Act, the Right of Publicity, the Right to Financial Privacy Act, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Georgia's Fair Businesses Practice Act, and Georgia's Surveillance and Publication of Private Facts statues.

Mr. Leakes has apologized privately to his wife and he offers a sincere apology to the others mentioned in the audio.  Any further discussion of the matter should be amongst Mr. Leakes and those individuals, privately.

Any further attempts by Mr. King to discuss this matter in a public forum will be met by the full exercise of legal protections afforded to Mr. Leakes, up to and including the filing of a lawsuit.

Sigh....

can someone please tell me

can someone please tell me how much are dj's making these days. How much did Corey give Greg??? Greg should have borrowed the money from someone who he trusted but a damn dj... i did not think they were making that much? i guess i was wrong. In additon is just goes to show you that nene and greg are not as financially stable as they would like people to think.. They asses broke just like everyone else. The only cast with real money is NJ and NY... and Kandi from the ATL...

Well, he didn't HAVE to hire

Well, he didn't HAVE to hire a PR team, and if he did, it was a poor choice for use of his funds. But I guess he got his money's worth if he actually spent money on a "team" that issues press releases including the phrase "ceast and desist."

I thought Corey would run

I thought Corey would run into some legal issues considering you can't just record people without their knowledge. If he wanted to put Gregg on blast for owing him money, there are proper legal channels. Sounds like someone wanted to get some shine for himself. Foul!!

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THIS

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THIS CLOWN FEELS THE NEED TO DEFRIMATE GREG'S CHARACTER? HE WASN'T EVEN REALLY A MAIN CHARACTER IN THE SHOW HIS WIFE WAS, SO THE POINT IN TRYING TO MAKE GREG LOOK BAD IS NOT BEING UNDERSTOOD. I WISH GREG WOULD HURRY UP AND GIVE THIS CLOWN HIS MONEY, SO HIS 15 MINUTES OF FAME CAN BE OVER!!

Yes, the nose is a damn mess!

Yes, the nose is a damn mess! I thought when you went hollywierd and got a nose job, it was too make it smaller, more dainty, or something (circa, MJ, Lil Kim, etc). NeNe's nose looks like it's only half finished! LOL! She needs to go and either get the rest done or get her old nose back. She looks SILLY.

As their friend you should

As their friend you should understand that they chose to put their business out there when they decided to do a "reality show" and NeNe decided to be on every radio/talk show she could. You want us to watch the show so she can get paid but have nothing else to say about it. Please! As for them being good people, Greg is a cool guy but all I see NeNe doing is talking sh*t. Sorry!

ummm...if they wanted people

ummm...if they wanted people to mind their own business, they shouldn't have agreed to do a show about "Housewives" and "family." That's the point of interest the public has with them because it's the nature of the show they're on. People want to be famous, but they don't want to deal with the real situations that come with fame.

I feel you on that, but at

I feel you on that, but at the same time, dude was completely wrong! IF he did not get Gregs consent to tape him on that call, he has violated many federal and state laws and for that he could go to jail. It is also against the law to publish someones credit history without their consent. Gregg clearly messed with the wrong dude! Don't borrow if you can't pay back! Lesson learned! lol

You know as a friend it is

You know as a friend it is easy to say others should mind their business, and the matter is private, but we are talking about narcisistic individuals who seek attention by putting their private lives on display. So they do want ppl talking about them, because it was their intent from the beginning. What they did not count on was the bad publicity, see this is what happens when you sell yourself for fame, you give control of who you are to others (Producers). As for the DJ he was dead wrong, and Gregg should have tried to resolves this issue with his wife, but you know what they say about what's done in the dark coming to the light. See what everyone is overlooking is how NeNe has sold out for a little bit of fame. We all see her smiling and acting all grand, but what she is doing when the camera's isn't rolling is coming to light. I wouldn't doubt that she mistreats her Husband, but this will all come back to bite her in the end. As many have found out fame doesn't last forever.
