Phaedra Parks has been through a lot after what happened to her husband. Now, she is saying that she would rather not take her children to visit their father anymore. Has this got something to do with her divorce? Let’s explore all!

Married Life, Husband, And Divorce!

On July 2014, Phaedra’s husband Apollo Nida had a major setback after he was charged with a money fraud scheme. He pleaded guilty of cashing stolen checks and laundering more than 2.3 million dollars by fake bank accounts and was sentenced to 8 years in prison; a ¼ of the maximum sentence. So, after 5 years of marriage, Phaedra decided to call it a quits with him.

Even though the divorce between them remains unsettled, Phaedra has confirmed that they are going to go through this in an interview with The Huffington Post in October 2014.

Unhealthy For Kids To Visit Prison

Phaedra has also taken a drastic measure not to let her kids visit their father in prison anymore. While several of her friends considered that by doing so, Phaedra would deny Apollo, his rights as a father. Phaedra believes that it is right for her kids, and this is with no beef to Apollo.

She just doesn’t want her kids; Dylan, 5 and Ayden, 8 to be around convicted felons like murderers and rapists.

On top of that, at one of her visits with her children, she encountered more than what she had bargained for; she along with her kids mistakenly witnessed an inmate being pleasured in the visitor’s room. She explains the incident as someone had their hands in someone else’s pants…a little masturbation,’ she says,

Try explaining that…they are at that age where they don’t know what’s going on

Even though she won’t let her kids visit their father in prison, there are no hard feelings for her estranged husband. Phaedra wants him to find happiness and move on in his life.

Well, she is an example of strong and independent women, she took care of her kids alone in the absence of their father.
