Bravo stars quickly took to social media to show support for the Leakes family, as Andy Cohen was one of the first to respond with a tweet.

“I am heartbroken over the passing of Gregg Leakes, a wonderful man,” he wrote. “I jokingly called him ‘Pastor Leakes’ but in truth he was a strong voice of reason &  commanded great respect among the entire #RHOA #RHOA team. I am sending love and strength to @neneleakes & the entire Leakes family.”

May God cover your family now & forever & equipped you w/what your heart needs to move on. Greg seemed like such a loving, funny, dynamic person to be around. I can tell he’ll be greatly missed.”

“Spend time with your loved ones every chance you get,” the 22-year-old wrote on his Instagram Story. “Time is so … valuable dog. I can’t express it. I’m learning the hard way watching my dad fight every day. Please go create memories with ya people.”
