Real Housewives of Atlanta: After All the Madness, Phaedra Parks Finally Leaves Husband Apollo Nida (Pictures)
Daily Mail reported on Friday that Phaedra Parks of Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) has finally left her husband, Apollo Nida. According to the RHOA star’s spokesperson:
“Phaedra has retained an attorney with the intent of amicably ending her marriage.”
Of course, this doesn’t surprise any of the RHOA reality TV show fans. We all witnessed Phaedra being threatened by Apollo earlier this month. This came after Apollo began serving prison time. He was sentenced to eight years in prison after he pled guilty in federal court to fraud charges.
Phaedra Parks Married a Two-Time Felon
Back in May, Apollo was apparently terrified to go to trial for the federal charges. He was facing charges for mail, wire and bank fraud after he was caught laundering over $2.3 million. Charges were also filed against him for stealing more than 50 identities from other people. Instead of going to trial, Phaedra’s husband decided it would be best to simply accept a deal and plead guilty.
People reported in May that this is not the first time Apollo Nida has been in trouble with the law. He was convicted of auto title fraud in the past, which led to him serving prison time from 2004 to 2009.
The two-time convict made it clear in court earlier this month that his wife had nothing whatsoever to do with his latest scam. As an entertainment attorney, Phaedra could have been subject to losing her license to practice law had she been involved.
Apollo Knew Divorce was Coming
During Apollo’s numerous court hearings, divorce rumors began surfacing. This was mostly due to the fact that Phaedra refused to support him through it, never showing up for his court dates. Apollo has stated on more than one occasion that he really didn’t believe his marriage to Phaedra would survive his prison time, telling People:
“I mean, my wife didn’t even f******g show up for my sentencing.
So, I’m still kind of salty about that.”
Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida have two children together. Both 4-year old Ayden and 1-year old Dylan live with Phaedra at this time.
Phaedra Parks Always Looks Classy
