NeNe Leakes wedding planner sues for defamation? NeNe Leakes made headlines when the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star remarried her husband Gregg Leakes. Although NeNe’s sitcom “The New Normal” ended up getting the axe from NBC (she still has Glee though), she was able to secure a spinoff show with Bravo entitled “I Dream of NeNe.” According to the actress and reality star, the upcoming show will show NeNe and Gregg preparing to take a second chance at marriage and she’s already made it clear on her Twitter account that it will be full of drama. Interestingly enough, NeNe has already been having some drama of her own with a woman who is claiming she was the star’s wedding planner for her second wedding to Gregg.

Tiffany Cook is not only claiming that she was NeNe’s wedding planner but she also filed a lawsuit against Leakes several weeks ago because she claims she was never paid for her services.

NeNe took to her Twitter account to deny the accusations and NeNe even claims she used another wedding planner. However, Tiffany Cook’s attorney says that is simply not true. In fact, Cook’s attorney confirms they have decided to sue the reality star for defamation because she is making the wedding planner look like a fraud.

Reginald Greene, managing attorney of Greene Legal Group LLC, tells Rolling Out:

“We filed an amended complaint to add claims for libel, defamation of character, invasion of privacy – false light, and punitive damages, specifically against NeNe Leakes, for [statements] that were directed at my client after the lawsuit was filed. That’s the basis for the amended complaint, adding specific defamation claims against NeNe Leakes.”


Tiffany cook tells Rolling Out that the whole situation has been a nightmare for her because NeNe has ruined her reputation:

“She has 1.3 million [Twitter] followers. To say such negative things about me, it can only be devastating. When you Google my name right now, there are 300 pages saying I am a scam artist, among other things. Again, we [Tiffany Cook Events] deal with a high-profile clientele. Generally, I am all over the Internet for the fantastic things that I do. It is absolutely devastating.”

    IDK why but I believe this woman. She was already doing weddings for plenty of athletes. I just don’t see why she would need to lie about this.

    I’m not a NeNe fan, but I see this kind of stuff happen all the time. I’m willing to bet $5 NeNe chose to work this woman first, and then got turned off and decided to go with someone else last minute. And the person she went with is most likely someone Tiffany knows and called herself putting on. NeNe just needs to pay her for what she did do.

    NeNe Moose should have kept her big mouth shut on Twitter. Had she been smart and not have tweeted a damn thing about the suit, she wouldn’t be getting sued now for defamation. Grown people need to learn how to stop showing out on Twitter.

    Smh. Hopefully now NeNe will stop tweeting about legal matters. For her to be so “rich” she should have known better.

    I don’t know why everybody is trippin please a lot the celebrities don’t pay their bills and NENE is not that big of a celebrity that she wouldn’t try it too. Shoo Nene is considered “Po Rich” for the simple fact is she don’t have that much money and who is Nene??? what Oscar has she won??? So don’t be so quick to judge the wedding planner????
