‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Apollo Nida Case: ‘RHOA’ Star Phaedra Parks Facing Disbarment ‘Not True,’ Report Says
A report is saying that a woman has claimed that “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks knew about husband Apollo Nida’s alleged fraudulent dealings ahead of the Bravo show’s season 6.
And now, there’s been reports saying that Parks is facing disbarment from the George State Bar amid Nida’s charges.
But a spokesperson with the Georgia State Bar told Radar Online those allegations aren’t true.
“She is an active member and has no public discipline,” the spokesperson said. “She has never been disbarred or suspended and is a member in good standing.”
Nida last month was arrested for bank fraud and other charges, and he denied those charges. Parks has said that her husband is innocent and said she knew nothing of his business dealings.
Radar Online reported that it obtained documents from the Georgia Secretary of State corporations database. It shows that Parks is listed as a founding officer of some of Nida’s businesses, the report says, but these companies weren’t involved in the federal indictment against him.
But the website said that it shows Parks was involved in Nida’s businesses.
Federal prosecutors allege that Nida created fake companies to help him get access to personal information databases. “When I describe these businesses as fake, what I mean is that while they may have been validly organized as entities wit the Georgia Secretary of State, they existed for a purpose other than the apparent business purpose implied by the entity name. In other words, I believe [they] were set up for the purpose of obtaining access to LexisNexis, Equifax, and similar databases,” reads a complaint.
In the case, Alexandre Herrera–a U.S. Secret Service Agent in the Counterfeit and U.S. Treasury Check Squad–has said that Nida ripped off people by opening fake bank accounts and using their real names, reports said. He also allegedly got ahold of stolen U.S. Treasury checks, stolen retirement checks for Delta Airline employees, and unclaimed tax checks.
