Actor, Leon Robinson, is known for man things, depending on which era you came up in. If you’re from the new school, you probably mostly know him as the ex-boyfriend of Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Cynthia Bailey, and as the daddy of their daughter, Noelle.

However, most of us, Old Schoolers know him as either “J.T.” from The Five Heartbeats, or as the late David Ruffin’s clone in the Temptations biopic. We also can’t forget about his role as the player boyfriend to Lela Rochon’s character in Waiting To Exhale, among many others. But he now has a few new roles in his real life, there than just a devoted father and actor.

Leon’s New Career


This may come as a surprise to many, but Leon is a singer in his band Leon & the Peoples. They released a new single, titled “Beautiful,” in 2017 and it’s actually pretty dope grown folks music. Check out a snippet of it below:

We knew the brotha was great at playing singers -in particular, cocky, arrogant ones (that’s not a diss, just an observation…we loved David Ruffin and his personality). But most of us never knew he was actually a REAL singer…minus the ‘arrogance.’

Leon’s Lady

Although most of us were accustomed to seeing Leon roll solo every time he appeared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, he actually isn’t single. We’ve watched Leon and Cynthia share a really close friendship on the show. They dated for years back in the day, and although they’d moved on, they sometimes appeared to be so close that many fans thought they still had a thing for each other.

That thought especially rang through the minds of many during RHOA’s last season, when she and Peter Thomas were divorcing. Why? Because during one of the episodes Cynthia and Leon went on a ‘friend’ date and she confided in him about her love life he seemingly low-key flirted with her. However, there was nothing happening between Cynthia and Leon (as far as we know). Now he has a new lady named, Patricia, and they look ‘crazy in love’ with each other. Check her out below…

Cynthia’s Exes Hangin’ Out

As we’ve also witnessed on RHOA, not only does Cynthia and Leon have a cool friendship, but so does her ex-husband, Peter, and Leon. We didn’t know they were THIS cool though…check them out…

Leon posted a pic of him and Peter chillin’ at the Celtics basketball game together…this is post-Cynthia Bailey. Alls well, that ends well, they’re all just one big blended family. Gotta luv it!
