The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks has officially filed for divorce from husband, Apollo Nida who is currently serving an eight year jail sentence. According to E! News, Phaedra has obtained an attorney in preparation to “amicably end her marriage.”
Apollo surrendered himself last month after pleading guilty to bank fraud and identity theft back in May and was ordered to do an eight year stint in prison. Prior to entering prison, a source close to the pair told E! :
“[Apollo] had “been out partying every single night” adding that Nida has “made things very uncomfortable” for the Bravo star.
“When he does speak to Phaedra, it’s always about money,” the source said. “He owes a huge debt in restitution and he wants to know if she’s going to help him with it. ‘Are you going to give me money?’ is always his question. He still wants her financial support.”
Following Apollo entering jail, Phaedra released a statement through her attorney stating that her main priorities are her two adorable sons Ayden and Dylan,
“Phaedra is now putting all of her energy into ensuring the well-being of her two children and making decisions that are in their best interests,” her attorney said. “This situation has put a tremendous strain on Phaedra and her family and she is working hard to bring back a sense of normalcy to everyone’s lives.”
Hopefully the mother of two is able to cope with the absence of her soon-too-be ex-husband.
