NeNe Leakes‘ boyfriend Nyonisela Sioh quietly filed for divorce from his long-suffering wife, who sued NeNe for alienation of affection last year.

According to court documents, obtained by TMZ, Nyonisela filed for divorce from Malomine Temeh-Sioh, the mother of his child.

In the documents, Nyonisela says he and Malomine have been married since 2016 and have a child together. He cited their separation date as Sept. 19, 2021. Nyoni claims they lived separately and haven’t resumed marital relations since then.

Nyonisela, 59, suggests he and his wife were separated before he met and wooed NeNe, 54.

NeNe and Nyoni were photographed together in Atlanta as early as December 2021. But the courts only recognize a legal divorce as proof of separation in alienation of affection lawsuits.

In other words, if a cheating husband wants to step out on his wife, he should divorce her first.


Nyoni’s court filing won’t affect his wife’s lawsuit against NeNe, whom she claims is a homewrecker.

Malomine accused NeNe of sleeping with her husband which ruined their marriage, causing her pain and emotional distress.

According to TMZ, Nyonisela wants a quick dissolution of the marriage and equitable distribution of their assets.

It isn’t clear if a judge has ruled on Malomine’s alienation of affection lawsuit against NeNe. But it looks like both Nyoni and NeNe will be paying Malomine big bucks to make her go away.
