Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Phaedra Parks and her husband, Apollo Nida, are reportedly headed to divorce court.
Rumor has it that their marriage is on the rocks and Phaedra is planning on leaving her husband Apollo Nida. It’s being reported that Phaedra is already starting to shed the accessories of married life. Specifically, reports claim that Phaedra was recently spotted without her wedding ring & husband Apollo.
Both Nida and Parks were featured on two seasons of Bravoâ€™s â€œReal Housewives of Atlantaâ€ leaving them both generously paid! Apollo made $50,000 per season while his wife brought $300,000 and a $75,000 bonus to the table. Goes to show that money does not buy happiness.
According to AllAboutTRH, a website dedicated to â€œall housewives everything,â€ Bravo producers have been trying to tape the coupleâ€™s marital problems but have been shut down by Nida himself. â€œThe producers from â€˜RHOAâ€™ are trying to snoop and shoot certain scenes of them arguing, but Apollo is just so aggressive he has started to refuse to partake in any filming,â€ reports the site. â€œApollo has even started threatening to take their son Ayden and leave.â€
The Atlanta based attorney is often faced with criticisms about her marriage to Apollo, a convicted felon, particularly from her Bravo reality TV co-stars who have previously labeled the union as “strange” on the show.
Apollo, who was convicted of felony possession of a firearm among other offenses, was previously sentenced to 18 years in prison and he began serving his sentence in July 2004.
Phaedra married Apollo shortly after he was paroled in May 2009, and has constantly been forced to defend him in the press which some critics suspect has added friction to their already strained marriage.
In a previous public statement Phaedra stated, “My husband was convicted of a white-collar crime. It was racketeering. He comes up for an appeal and we just hope that works out positively. But he wasn’t guilty of harming any person or anybody and unfortunately that’s what happened. I married my husband because I loved him and he loved me and I think that’s the foundation of any good relationship. I didn’t marry him because of his past or because of his future. I married him because I respected him and I – realized everyone should realize that people make mistakes. Apollo has served his time and under our laws we have a system where if you do what you are supposed to do you should be able to return to society and be made whole and not constantly scrutinized for something that happened in the past.”
Just because Parks was spotted without her wedding ring and without her hubby on arm, may not seem like a big deal now. However, rumors have circulated for some time that Apollo has more than a wandering eye, so we are not surprised.
