In the pics, Brentt posed wearing a red velvet tracksuit paired with a Celine headband, sneakers, and a black cross-body bag.
The Georgia native posted numerous snaps of the look, including a video of him walking through a hotel lobby.
In the final snap, Brentt included a throwback photo showing his recent weight loss progress.
He boasted about his trimmed physique in his caption: “Focus on you until The focus is you. #100poundsdown.”
A week earlier, he again displayed his fit figure in a pic with his mother as they celebrated her birthday.
NeNe, 55, sweetly commented: “I got you ALWAYS,” with a red heart emoji.
The photos came three months after Brentt was rushed to the hospital after suffering a heart attack and a stroke.
Sources close to the family told TMZ that NeNe’s youngest child suffered the medical emergency in his hometown of Atlanta in October.
He was quickly transported to a hospital to receive medical attention, where he stayed for several days before being released.
The couple first tied the knot in 1997 before divorcing in 2011, though they walked down the aisle again in 2013.
Since he was first diagnosed with cancer, Nene had been Gregg’s caretaker, sharing: “It was difficult. Gregg handled a lot of things in our life. There were some things I didn’t know — some of the simple things. I didn’t even know who the lawn guy was.”
Upon Gregg’s passing on September 1, 2021, Nene told People: “The last five days before his passing was really beautiful. All of his children were there. His best friends were there. Our closest friends were there. We all sat with him around the clock.”
She continued, “We talked a lot, and we made peace with what was happening.”
She shared some of her late husband’s last words: “I’m not going to leave you. God is going to bless you.”
The Bravo alum detailed: “I told him I wouldn’t have chosen another husband other than him. I said, ‘I married you twice, crazy man.”
“He said he wanted me to move on with my life,” the reality star went on to say.
She was also there for him when he took his last breath, recalling: “He took a deep breath, and then he stopped.
“I thought I would be scared, but I just held him and kissed him.”
“I keep thinking to myself he’s away on a trip and he’ll be right back. I’m still waiting for him to come home.”
NeNe held a memorial for Gregg with a special performance by Tamar Braxton at their Atlanta nightclub.
Brentt also threw a party at their family lounge, The Linnethia Lounge, to honor his father.
Additionally, he shared a special tribute to his late dad on social media.
Brentt wrote in the emotional post: “Spend time with your loved ones every chance you get.
“Time is so F**king valuable dog. I can’t express it.”
He added: “I’m learning the hard way watching my dad fight every day. Please go create memories with ya people.”
NeNe is also a mother to a 33-year-old son, Bryson, from a past relationship, while Gregg had five other children: Denton, Daryl, Damian, Dexter, and Katrina.
