Following Eva Marcille announcing that she was not returning for Season 13 of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ rumors began swirling that NeNe Leakes was also on her way out the door.

It had been suggested that Leakes was not set to return due to ongoing legal issues with Bravo, but as of Wednesday more unconfirmed sources via B. Scott alleged that Leakes was indeed fired.

Well, NeNe’s team has clapped back in an official statement after she initially took to Instagram on Wednesday to laugh off rumors.

via People:

The reality star is denying claims that she was fired from the Bravo show, asserting that she is still in talks about returning for season 13.

“It is absolutely not true that Nene has been fired from RHOA,” Leakes’ manager, Steven Grossman tells PEOPLE. “Furthermore, it was made abundantly clear prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be.”

Grossman notes that they are “having on-going bigger picture conversations with NBC Universal and have not made any decisions regarding next season specifically. Any speculation or sources trying to create controversy by stating otherwise are incredibly inaccurate. Bloop.”

A spokesperson for Bravo also confirmed that Leakes was not ousted from the series.

“There is no truth to this story- NeNe was not fired and conversations for the next season are still ongoing,” the spokesperson tells PEOPLE.

On Wednesday, Leakes, 52, wrote in a since-deleted tweet, “You are NOT gonna get away with this! I promise,” celebrity site captured.

The same day, the Bravo star retweeted a fan’s message, “I wouldn’t watch RHOA without Mrs. @NeNeLeakes she is what keeps me watching the show, she cracks me up!”
