Rumors have been swirling for months that Phaedra Parks is on the brink of divorce from Apollo Nida. Today the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star’s rep confirmed that Phaedra has retained legal counsel and is moving forward to end her marriage!
“Phaedra has retained an attorney with the intent of amicably ending her marriage,” Phaedra’s rep Steve Honig shared with Reality Tea.
Phaedra was reportedly under “tremendous strain” while trying to keep her children’s lives normal while Apollo underwent his legal battle, and subsequent incarceration.

Apollo is currently serving an 8 year sentence for fraud in Lexington, KY while Phaedra focuses on her sons and building her businesses. Phaedra and Apollo have argued recently over his accusations that she was having an affair during their separation.
Meanwhile Apollo continues to face heat for his alleged cheating and inappropriate behavior (communication?) with Kenya Moore, which has been ever-revealing throughout the past two seasons of RHOA and will continue to be a problem in the upcoming 7th season which premieres November 9th.
Before Apollo left for prison the couple was living apart and things were “very uncomfortable.” Sources reported that Apollo was out “partying every single night” and was only relying on Phaedra for financial support. “When he does speak to Phaedra, it’s always about money,” the source told E! News. “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.”
Sources reveal Apollo is threatened to write a tell-all while in prison that will reveal details about his relationship and marriage to Phaedra if she filed for divorce. If true, apparently that was a risk Phaedra was willing to take!
Phaedra will sit-down with Ellen DeGeneres to do her own tell-all on October 15th.
