Pheadra Parks is finally breaking her silence about Apollo Nida and his legal problems.
"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star appeared on "Ellen" to come clean about his crimes and confirm she is over their marriage.
According to Phaedra, she knew nothing about his criminal activities.
“I mean, I work. I just got my fifth college degree. And so I’m pretty much an overachiever. I have two very small children. I just stopped breast-feeding three months ago. So, I didn’t have any idea this was going on until he called me and he said, ‘Hey, I’ve been arrested and I’m having this problem, but it’s not true.’ So I went out of my way to get him the best attorneys, the best investigators, and to do anything I could, because I’m an attorney myself and so I wanted him to have the best. So we could fight this together, but obviously it did not turn out like that,” she said.
The attorney says she thought her husband was a changed man after his first prison stint.
“Well, to be honest, he had been to prison and he was a changed person. So the person I married, I thought he was changed.”
She also addressed rumors that she has been cheating on Apollo with a man named Chocolate.
“They’re saying that I had an affair with a man from Africa named Chocolate. Now, everybody knows that I do like a Snicker bar every once in a while, but it’s definitely not a man from Africa that I’ve ever had an affair with. I mean, It’s just absurd,” she said.
“I think sometimes when people are hurting they do things to hurt other people. There’s been a lot of lashing out from Apollo because I think he’s in a place, a very angry place, and I think you hurt the people closest to you sometimes. It’s unfortunate.”
