Hot off the press!
According to E! News, a rep for Phaedra Parks tells the media outlet that “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star is getting ready to end her 5-year marriage to convicted felon, Apollo Nida.
“[She] has retained an attorney with the intent of amicably ending her marriage,” the rep says.
Last month, Apollo checked himself into prison to begin serving an 8-year prison sentence for fraud charges. Earlier this year, he pleaded guilty to charges of mail, wire, and bank fraud in Georgia. Appearing in court, he expressed regret and said he took “full responsibility for [my] actions…It was a dumb situation I put myself in. It’s my fault at the end of the day.”
Previously, Phaedra’s rep told E! that she:
“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. 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.”
The couple have two children together, sons Dylan and Ayden.
