Phaedra Parks Plans to Divorce Apollo Nida
There was speculation of there being trouble in paradise for the marriage of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks and her hubby Apollo Nida but now there is no doubt that the couple is headed for splitsville. After going AWOL last week to go confront Phaedra about not putting money in his commissary account, there are now reports that Phaedra is proceeding with filing divorce papers. Radar Online reports that a source close to the mother of two informed that that “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 also told the site that Phaedra regretting even saying ‘I do’ to her husband of five years.
“There was no way Phaedra was going to put her life on hold for the next decade, awaiting Apollo to be released,” said the insider.
“The marriage was a huge mistake, but did give her their beloved kids. 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.”
It was also reported that Phaedra has feared for her safety while being married to Apollo, which prevented her from filing for divorce in the past. “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,” said the source.
The Bravo cameras have reportedly been rolling during this difficult time for Phaedra as well.
