NeNe and Gregg Leakes’ son is wearing his grief on his hat.

Brentt Leakes shared a photo on his Instagram Story of a hat reading “cancer sucks,” after news broke that his father died on Wednesday of the disease.

“Get the suck outta here,” the hat also read.

Gregg passed away at age 66, following a 3-year battle colon cancer.

“Today, the Leakes family is in deep pain with a broken heart. After a long battle with cancer, Gregg Leakes has passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by all of his children, very close loved ones and wife NeNe Leakes,” the couple’s rep said in a press release earlier this week.

“We ask that you pray for peace and strength over their family and allow them to mourn in private during this very, very difficult time.”

Tragically, things took a turn for the worse in June, with the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star confirming that his cancer had returned.

“I’d love for everybody to pray for Gregg. That would be beautiful. Pray for his strength,” she said at the time, adding, “And pray for me too.”

NeNe and Gregg first married in 1997 but divorced in 2011 before remarrying in 2013.

Shortly before his father’s death, 22-year-old Brentt shared an emotional message on Instagram that read, “Spend time with your loved ones every chance you get. 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.”
