Phaedra Parks Divorce: Staying With Apollo Nida May Be Too Costly For ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ Star

Phaedra Parks is reportedly planning to divorce husband Apollo Nida, which appears to be a good financial decision for the Real Housewives of Atlanta star.

Nida, who has already been sentenced to eight years in federal prison for fraud, has now been hit with a restitution penalty of nearly $2 million. He has reportedly been given a lien that orders him to pay it back in full within 20 years or else risk paying an additional 25 percent of the original amount.

If Phaedra Parks were to stay with Nida, that would mean helping pick up the tab of approximately $100,000 a year for each of the next 20 years.

But reports indicate that Parks has no intention of sticking around that long. Sources have said there are deep problems between the couple, and Phaedra wasn’t even in the building when a judge sentenced Nida to prison for eight years.


According to US Weekly, Apollo Nida was furious that his wife couldn’t be there to support him, saying: “I mean, my wife didn’t even f**king show up for my sentencing. I’m still salty about that.”

A report from MediaTakeOut later indicated that Phaedra Parks was already starting to date other men. The site had pictures of Phaedra’s makeover, which was intended to help kick off the new period of being single.

“Phaedra and Apollo had their issues, even before he got caught up [in his legal drama]. Phaedra is a good and loving woman and she tried to stand by him, honor, and hold him down,” the source said, adding that Apollo has been leaving his wife to drink and party without letting her know ahead of time.Some sources believe that Phaedra Parks may have already filled out divorce paperwork in Fulton County, but that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is just waiting for the right moment to make it public.
