Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida’s divorce battle has been quite messy. For years, the two have gone back and forth with demands about their finances and their children. Then to make matters worse, the finalization of their divorce was thrown out when Apollo shed light on a grammatical error that he believed Phaedra did intentionally so he wouldn’t have adequate time to respond. Because of the failure to respond, Phaedra was given a default judgment. However, the judgment didn’t last long because it was thrown out. But, now it appears Phaedra and Apollo have finally gotten the job done. For the first time in a long time, Phaedra is speaking out about Apollo.
Life After Apollo:
Although Apollo is behind bars, he’s often made headlines with his take on the divorce battle he’s been embroiled in with Phaedra. For a while, many fans wondered why their divorce has taken so long. Since Apollo had publicly professed his love for another woman and announced his engagement, many fans assumed Phaedra was the one causing problems in order to create more problems for her soon-to-be ex-husband. But, now Phaedra wants fans to know the truth. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star also revealed a little-known fact most people are probably unaware of.
Apparently, she and Apollo had much more time together than fans may have thought. Phaedra has revealed they actually began dating in high school, but even after all the years, she’s glad that chapter in her life has come to an end. “I wasn’t holding on to him. He kept appealing the divorce and finally it was granted. Apollo and I started dating in high school and now I’m in my early 40s, so it was time to go. That’s almost a lifetime. Thank God it’s over, but thank God it happened because we have two beautiful kids.”
Phaedra went on to discuss what it’s like co-parenting with her incarcerated ex. Initially, Phaedra refused to take the boys to see their father, but now she’s revealed she’s doing the best she can to work with him despite the circumstances. “As much as I can with someone who is in prison. I wish him the best and he wishes me the best. … We haven’t seen him in a while, but it’s OK. We are in very normal communication with him through third parties, so he knows what is going on in their life.”
Now that things are pretty much over with Apollo, Phaedra is looking toward the future. She’s revealed she’s not dating anyone but she’s definitely interesting in moving on with her life. Although she’s open to new relationships, she’s admitted she’d appreciate someone who would understand her desire to move slowly since she’s newly divorced. “I’m not dating anyone seriously. I’ve been on a few dates. I think I’m hot on the market. I’m looking for a lot of things. I love to be pampered, but also like to have a divorce conversation. I also love an attractive man, so there’s nksgt [sic] as well.’
