Nene Leakes is being accused of acting inappropriately behind the back of her husband, Gregg Leakes.

Days after Nene suggested that she and Gregg have an "understanding" that keeps them from getting divorced but wouldn't explain what that understanding was, a report from Page Six claimed the longtime reality star and actress has been carrying on with an inappropriate relationship with a USDA director named Rodney White.

According to the report, the alleged close bond between Nene and Rodney has raised eyebrows within their social circle.

Nene and Rodney have allegedly been “family friends” for years. However, in late 2017, they reportedly began spending more time with one another.

“People close to him have said that it’s all about the lifestyle,” a source said. “If it wasn’t for that, he wouldn’t give her the time of day … because he didn’t before when she was a nobody. He knew her before she became the NeNe Leakes that she is today and before the multiple surgeries to change her looks.”

In early 2019, NeNe and Rodney were seen having dinner at Bâoli in Miami, even though Gregg was fighting stage 3 colon cancer in Atlanta at the time.

Also during Nene's visit to Miami, the reality star was said to have been spotted with a “tall, handsome black man” at South Beach hotspot E11EVEN, where patrons are not allowed to take photos.

“They were all over each other,” a source said. “They were touching each other, laughing, giggling, kissing, but it wasn’t like they were full-blown slobbering down. I don’t think she was trying to hide it.”

“She was all over this guy. Kissing, cuddling, holding, sitting on his lap,” another inside claimed.

The Page Six report also suggested Nene's "Real Housewives of Atlanta" co-stars were in the loop with her relationship with Rodney.

“Marlo [Thompson] knows who this man is. Cynthia [Bailey] knows who this man is. Eva [Marcille] has seen them together,” the source alleged, adding that Rodney "loves the limelight.”

“He loves to have the red carpet rolled out. He feels like he’s a celebrity. He’s that type of person,” the insider continued.

As fans may have noticed, Rodney shared a photo of himself in the Bravo Clubhouse last November, during the time Nene was appearing on "Watch What Happens Live" with Kelly Rowland.

Earlier this year, another insider told Page Six that NeNe “flaunts her relationship with [White] around openly like they’re together.”

“She spends a lot of time in Maryland not only because of this boutique, but also because of [White],” the source alleged.

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" season 12 wrapped earlier this month with a virtual three-part reunion and due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it is unclear when filming will begin on the upcoming 13th season of the Bravo reality series.
