AceShowbiz - NeNe Leakes doesn't understand why her boyfriend's wife sues her. "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" alum, who has denied she's having an affair with Nyonisela Sioh, claimed that she shouldn't have been "dragged into" legal drama between him and Malomine Tehmeh-Sioh because she had nothing to do with it.
The reality star addressed the issue in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight. "I feel like it's their business and not mine, right?" she first said. "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."
Malomine filed a lawsuit against NeNe on May 23, claiming that she started hooking up with Nyonisela Sioh while he was still married to her. Malomine blamed NeNe's alleged affair with Nyonisela for breaking up the marriage.
Malomine also 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 is seeking for more than $100,000 in damages for the downfall of her marriage.
NeNe has since responded to the lawsuit. In a video posted on her social media account, the former "Glee" star seemingly laughe off the allegation as she said that she "would never" steal someone's husband.
"I'm already out here a husband stealer and this is too much," the 54-year-old 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."
