Phaedra Parks And Apollo Nida’s Divorce Battle Gets Even Messier, Details Here!
Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida's divorce case will go before a judge on July 10 and Nida's attorney is ready for a showdown after Phaedra's shady moves.

Parks, who was recently fired from "Real Housewives of Atlanta" for her lies and manipulative behavior, originally filed for divorce back in 2015. The divorce was finalized in November 2015 until a judge realized her incarcerated husband was not properly served with divorce documents or notified of the hearing.

Apollo's attorney, Tessie Edwards, is suggesting that Phaedra deliberately misspelled the last name of Nida to 'Nita." Edwards stated, "It’s important to note that when Apollo got served with the divorce, he had called Phaedra and asked her about it because it wasn’t even in their legal name."

Nida's attorney claims that Parks told her estranged husband they would wait until he got out of prison to file due to the errors in the paperwork. However, Phaedra pulled a fast one and proceeded to have the divorce finalized. Nida reportedly filed for divorce and discovered that he was already divorced at that time.

His lawyer said, “Phaedra advised him that she was going to just set the entire divorce aside. She said that there were errors in the papers as they appeared and not to worry that they will file it when he gets out of prison. After that, he didn’t get any notices and didn’t hear anything else about it. She had told him to disregard the complaint entirely, that this would wait. He was totally blindsided when he found out he was divorced!”

Nida, who is serving prison time for identity theft, bank fraud, conspiracy and other charges, has an outstanding restitution bill of around $2 million. He has only paid $118,406 of the massive bill and assets he receives from the divorce could assist him in paying off the amount due.

Nida is already engaged to a woman named Sherien Almufti, although he is still legally married to Parks. He proposed to Sherien last year in prison.

Phaedra's attorney has made it appear Apollo is dragging his feet in the divorce.

Parks' rep said in a statement, "It’s very confusing why a man who is engaged and enjoys frequent visits with his fiancée would work so aggressively to avoid ending his marriage. Regardless, Phaedra is reviewing her options with her attorney to determine the most efficient path toward ending this marriage so she can move forward and focus on raising strong, healthy and happy children.”

Apollo is going after his half of their assets and property and is also seeking joint legal custody of his two sons with Phaedra -  6-year-old Ayden and 3-year-old Dylan.
