Phaedra Parks Divorce: 'Real Housewives Of Atlanta' Star Plans To Serve Husband Papers in Prison

Phaedra Parks is planning to divorce husband Apollo Nida not long after he heads off to serve a prison sentence, a sources close to the Real Housewives of Atlanta star claims.

The rumors of trouble between Apollo and Phaedra have grown in recent weeks, though Parks said in an appearance on Watch What Happens Live that she had no plans to divorce her husband. Sources close to Phaedra say this isn't exactly the truth, but that she isn't ready to make the split public.

"Phaedra has been patiently waiting for Apollo to begin serving his prison sentence, and will have him served with divorce papers at the correctional facility in Kentucky," the source told Radar Online.

Previous reports claims that Phaedra Parks was driven to divorce from her husband's complete lack of communication. Sources claimed that he would head out to clubs or to see other women and be gone for hours on end, giving no indication to his wife where he was.

"There were serious trust issues with Apollo, and Phaedra suspects he has been unfaithful, and has been burning through money. Phaedra has always been the breadwinner, and she began to resent it," the source claimed.

Apollo's prison sentence has made the situation even more difficult, sources claimed. He was recently sentenced to eight years in prison for a variety of charges, including multiple counts of fraud.

The marital strife between Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida is still growing worse, a report from Wet Paint claimed. Phaedra's rep, Steve Honig, confirmed that Apollo stopped by their house when he was supposed to be headed to prison.

But some think that Apollo's prison sentence was the perfect excuse for Phaedra to follow through on divorce plans.

"Having Apollo behind bars gives Phaedra a huge level of comfort and security. It's sad that it came to this, but Phaedra knows it's the right thing for her to do," the insider added.

Despite the reports, Phaedra Parks has yet to officially file for divorce.
