NeNe Leakes has responded to an ex-employee's allegations that she abandoned her SWAGG boutique workers who are still waiting for their final paychecks.

Rumor has it that Nene has fallen on hard times and is struggling to get out from under a mountain of medical bills after husband Gregg Leakes passed away.

In an email to Sandrarose.com last week, the former employee said NeNe's workers and managers showed up for work at the SWAGG Boutique at the MGM Casino in Oxon Hill, Maryland, only to find the door padlocked and the space empty.

She wrote, "We can't even get unemployment because Nene is refusing to answer and return the phone calls from the unemployment office."

"She is trifling and is really a fake individual who cares about no one but herself. She used us and spit us out like we was trash and gives 2 f*cks about about our livelihood."

Blogger Michelle 'ATLien' Brown, of StraigtfromtheA.com, reached out to NeNe, real name Linnethia Leakes, for comment.

Apparently, NeNe disputed everything in the ex-employee's email. She claimed her employees helped pack up the store.

"How is it that the employees didn't know that the boutique was closing?" Michelle asked.

Michelle defended her friend, NeNe, saying the 53-year-old ex-reality star is not broke.

"Meanwhile, SWAGG boutique online is still up and running," said Michelle. "Did they shut that down, too?"

NeNe Leakes reportedly shuttered her last remaining SWAGG Boutique and didn't inform her employees who are still waiting for paychecks, according to sources.

NeNe's employees and managers showed up to the SWAGG Boutique at the MGM Casino in Oxon Hill, Maryland, only to find the door padlocked and the space empty.

One of Nene's former employees is being evicted from her apartment. In an email to Sandrarose.com, she said Nene never informed her or any of the other employees that she was planning to close the store.

"We can't even get unemployment because Nene is refusing to answer and return the phone calls from the unemployment office," the former employee wrote.

"She is trifling and is really a fake individual who cares about no one but herself. She used us and spit us out like we was trash and gives 2 f*cks about about our livelihood."

Money has been tight for the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star who lost her high-paying RHOA gig due to alleged insubordination and alleged difficulties getting along with her co-stars.

NeNe closed down her Buckhead and Duluth stores last year due to the pandemic. She also shut down her Sugarloaf Mills location in Lawrenceville, Georgia, and one store in Florida.

NeNe Leakes is closing the doors of her Swagg clothing boutique in Georgia. Sources say the doors were closed even before the coronavirus pandemic in February.

According to reports NeNe's Swagg boutique in Duluth, GA is covered with 'Going Out of Business' sale signs.

NeNe may have been one of the cast members. Business has not been good for the mom-of-two who shut down her first Swagg boutique in Buckhead, an affluent neighborhood north of Atlanta, two years ago.

The 52-year-old Sagittarius lost her lucrative Real Housewives of Atlanta job, along with her million-dollar salary for alleged insubordination on the set.

NeNe still has Swagg shops in Miami and Oxon Hill, Maryland and she continues to offer online shopping.

The first Swagg Boutique opened in Buckhead in 2016.
