*Let it be said that there is only so much a parent will do for their kids. And apparently Phaedra Parks has reached her limit.
In Touch Weekly reports the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star is looking to divorce her husband Apollo Nida, who was sentenced to eight years in prison after being convicted of federal bank fraud and identity theft on July 8. Although she wants to keep her family together for the sake of their two kids, Apollo’s criminal moves and resulting jail time was the last straw for Phaedra, who, the publication stated, “wants to leave him.”
‘If they never started a family, she would have filed for divorce long ago,’ an insider reportedly told In Touch Weekly. ‘But this is going to push Phaedra to act quickly.’
Married since November 2009, Phaedra, 41, and Apollo, 35, often appeared together on “RHOA.” Despite the illusion of togetherness, Phaedra was reportedly a no show at Apollo’s sentencing in the US District Court in Georgia.
As if a looming divorce wasn’t enough, the headed-to-jail personal trainer will have to ante up close to $1.9 million in restitution after being convicted of cashing stolen checks and laundering more than $2.3 million, according to TMZ.com.
