Phaedra Parks will have to answer to a judge and defend herself against claims she ran a ‘criminal enterprise’ alongside her husband Apollo Nida — who’s currently serving an 8-year prison sentence.
As it turns out, Phaedra’s defamation lawsuit with author Angela Stanton is finally getting ready to head to trial after four years. Phaedra has been trying to get the whole case thrown out, but the judge isn’t having it.
via Radar Online:
As Radar reported, Parks sued Stanton back in 2012 over claims that she made in her book, Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell The Truth & Shame The Devil. Stanton made the outrageous claim that Parks oversaw a “criminal enterprise” alongside husband Nida, using fake bank accounts, bad checks, stolen cars and worse, according to court documents. In addition, the records in the case state that she even unbelievably alleged that Parks had a secret “girlfriend,” was into “freaky” sex, and so much more!
Parks, 44, sued her for defamation, and Stanton hit back with her own counterclaims. Parks tried multiple times to have those counterclaims dismissed, but was denied most recently back on March 12, 2016.
There is one more hearing for a potential summary judgment on April 20. But if the judge denies the judgment yet again, the case will go to trial the next day, on Thursday morning at 9:30 a.m. in Georgia.
Parks’s rep declined to comment on the pending legal matter. Stanton did not immediately respond to Radar’s request for comment.
Do you think Phaedra had full knowledge of her husband’s criminal activities?
