Nene Leakes was forced to pay the Bravo cameraman that she assaulted in her closet – $200,000, MTO News has learned. Nene was suspended for one episode from the Atlanta Housewives – and had to forfeit her $200K an episode salary to her victim.
Nene currently makes $5M per season on Bravo’s highest rated show.
During last season of Bravo’s Atlanta Housewives, Nene Leakes got into a physical altercation with one of the cameramen. Nene “attacked” the man, and ripped his shirt.
But the Bravo employee also suffered more substantial injuries – he lost one of his teeth. And Nene had to pay the producer for it.
On last night’s Atlanta Housewives reunion, Nene explained what happened with the crew member during the fight.
“I didn’t hit him. I pulled his t-shirt. And it was a t-shirt and it tore,” NeNe explained.
“Well, him, but the other guy got choked up, scratched up, went to the hospital,” Porsha said.
“Did he go to the hospital?” NeNe said, pretending like she didn’t know. “I didn’t hear nothing about that.”
Porsha had even more information. “He absolutely did and absolutely had scratches on his back. Choked up and head drug against the wall.”
Kandi Burruss confirmed that story, saying: “His tooth got knocked out.”
“I heard his tooth was cracked,” NeNe said, “but nonetheless, it didn’t give me the right to touch him.”
