Here's Why Apollo Nida Wants The Judge To Scrap Prenup With Phaedra Parks
Apollo Nida has asked that the judge over his divorce proceedings rule that his 2009 prenup with estranged wife Phaedra Parks be considered 'null and void' because the agreement was signed just before she began raking in big money on "Real Housewives of Atlanta." Nida argues that Parks' storyline on the show was a success due to him and that he should receive his fair share.

Sources are claiming that Apollo is now hoping to obtain millions of dollars in a new settlement with the "RHOA" star. 

Parks was booted off of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" due to misconduct, but that isn't stopping Nida from seeking the money his estranged wife raked in previously on the show.

Apollo wants a cut of his estranged wife Phaedra's RHOA paychecks, insisting he’s the one who gave her a storyline to begin with - Parks, a known 'high-powered attorney" that married a former convicted felon.

Nida's legal documents seeking money from Park's time on the reality show states, "The parties’ joint participation on the show generated millions of dollars for the Wife who was the contracted cast member.”

It goes on to state, “It is undisputed that the Husband’s involvement on the reality show aided in the Wife remaining a relevant cast member on the show and consequently causing her to earn millions of dollars.”
Apollo wants the pre-nuptial agreement tossed out because he believes it’s “unfair and unreasonable” for the court to allow the premarital agreement in light of the fact that he contributed significantly to his wife’s success.

Apollo believes her “RHOA” checks should be considered when they divide up their assets in their divorce. Nida's argues that he signed the prenup in October 2009 and it was only months later when Phaedra signed on to join the cast of "RHOA." 

Apollo appears to think he won't be receiving a fair share of their assets if Phaedra's massive earnings from the show are not included. 

A judge made the decision to nullify the divorce between Nida and Parks after she did a few shady things. Phaedra tried to be sneaky and misspelled their last name on the documents as 'Nita' instead of 'Nida.'  The judge also believes she misled Apollo to believe he would be able to attend divorce hearings while incarcerated. 

Nida claims he never received divorce documents after they were finalized and was never even informed of a final hearing. He filed his own divorce documents on December 2. 

It wasn't long before a judge nullified their divorce and Apollo is taking the opportunity to go after Phaedra’s money.

Apollo is currently serving an 8-year sentence in prison after pleading guilty to bank fraud and identity theft. The personal trainer was charged with being in a four-year scheme involving bank, mail and wire fraud and ID theft of more than 50 people. 

Nida also served six years in prison from 2003 to 2009 for car theft charges.

Phaedra and Apollo officially separated in 2014 after nearly five years of marriage. The former couple have two sons - Ayden, 6; and Dylan, 3.
