NeNe said at the time that the doctors were still working to find out what caused her son to suffer a stroke in his early twenties.
The reality star did say experts ruled out Brentt’s weight as a cause of the stroke. “We are still trying to figure it out, because if we knew the cause then obviously they could treat the cause.” Leakes also said doctors told her Brentt could have caught COVID since people who catch the Delta variant suffer similar issues.
“They were thinking that maybe he had caught COVID and maybe he didn’t know that he had COVID.” When NeNe spoke out about her son’s condition two months ago, she asked fans to keep him in their prayers. “I don’t even want to go into details of what happened and how I found out and what condition he was in. Obviously a stroke is a very serious thing, and he’s struggling with speaking.” The tv star continued, “He has shown some improvement. We’re really happy and blessed for that.”
