Rumors about Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida getting a divorce are spreading online, but the couple has not officially confirmed it. The International Business Times reports on March 22 that the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star may be separating from her husband because of his legal problems. Nida is under house arrest and faces fraud charges.
A combination of marriage problems and legal woes is allegedly behind the rumors that Parks and Nida have ended their relationship. Nida, who has already been charged with fraud and identity theft, has a trial coming up soon, but his lawyer wife may not be by his side to help him.
Some of their marriage issues became evident on a recent episode of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” that featured a trip to Mexico. Parks became angry after seeing Nida with Kenya Moore and walked out, but other housewives had to convince her husband to go after her. He seemed content to let her leave and continue his conversation with Moore.
Although the flirtation with Moore did not help, it is not the only possible reason for their marriage to fall apart. Nida’s legal issues and other indiscretions have put a large strain on the relationship, and it appears Parks can no longer handle it. Nida was never a favorite of the other housewives, so they may actually welcome a divorce and his disappearance from the reality TV show.
