A new report indicates that Phaedra Parks will divorce her incarcerated husband Apollo Nipa, and plans to serve him with divorce papers in prison.

Days after he started his lengthy prison sentence for bank and wire fraud at FMC Lexington prison in Kentucky, Apollo can now look forward to a rude awakening.

Well, he's probably already had that. It's prison, after all. But Phaedra's divorce filing is about to hit him where it hurts, and there's nothing he can do about it.

“Phaedra’s starting the divorce process all on her own,” a Parks source, says, noting that the Atlanta lawyer has "already drawn up papers herself.”

That's not to say that Apollo plans on going down quietly, despite his felonious ways. He's reportedly planned a preemptive prison strike of his own.

“He wants to write a tell-all book while he’s in there,” a Nida insider dishes.

Hopefully, he takes some writing and reading lasses prior to that, as Apollo Nida's prison video message shows us that he doesn't know what "asunder" means.

At the moment, Apollo Nida is in prison, but apparently before he left for his 8-year vacation at Club Fed, Phaedra Parks' troubled husband filmed some scenes for The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 7.

And based on Kenya Moore's latest online Q&A session with fans, Apollo vindicated her during one of their final scenes together and even apologized on camera!

In case you don't remember, last year, Nida claimed Moore was sexting him and looking for a hook-up while they were both in LA.

Kenya admitted that she and Nida had exchanged text messages, but denies they were sexual in nature.

Apollo stuck to his guns, but apparently had a crisis of conscience before he was shipped off to prison, and he confessed in front of Bravo cameras that he made the whole thing up.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks reportedly wants to divorce Apollo Nida ASAP after the shenanigans he pulled before going to prison.

Attorney Parks will be filing for divorce from her convict husband and has already had the legal documents prepared, a new, not surprising report says.

Apollo Nida reported to prison sometime late Wednesday night or Thursday morning, but not before briefly going AWOL ... and going NUTS on Parks.

En route to the Kentucky penitentiary that will be his home for some time, Nida stopped by his old house and went off on Phaedra in an epic argument.

What exactly was said? We don't know, but Bravo cameras were rolling, so it'll play out next season when we watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

In any case, Parks has had enough. An insider says of the embattled couple:

“Phaedra has been patiently waiting for Apollo to begin serving his prison sentence, and will have him served with divorce papers at the correctional facility."

After briefly going AWOL, Apollo Nida has finally checked into the Kentucky prison that will serve as his home for the next eight years.

Apollo left for prison yesterday morning, but decided to make a detour along the way and stop by the home of his estranged wife Phaedra Parks.

Nida verbally attacked Parks, forced himself into her home and made off with some of her property, all while cameras were rolling, witnesses say.

Given his unusual behavior, many assumed The Real Housewives of Atlanta star would go on the run. Late last night, however, Nida posted the following video message online:

"Well, everyone, I have finally arrived at the penitentiary," Nida says in the 16-second clip. "I'm about to go asunder. Thank you for the support and prayer. Stay tuned and you'll hear from me shortly."

Earlier today, we reported that Apollo Nida had reported to prison after spending his last months as a free man avoiding his wife and children.

Now it seems that Nida is a wanted man after failing to turn himself in.

Yes, Apollo apparently had a last-minute change of heart.

About both prison and his family. TMZ reports that the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star decided to pay one final visit to his estranged wife Phaedra Parks.

As you might've guessed, it didn't go well.

Apollo reportedly demanded that Phaedra put money into his prison account and bring their children for visits while he's locked up. She refused and that's when he really lost it:

Apollo Nida is no longer a free man.

The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star and soon-to-be-ex-husband of Phaedra Parks has turned himself in to authorities today to begin serving an eight year sentence in federal prison.

Nida pled guilty to fraud back in May, and though he was able to have his sentence and fines reduced in exchange for "cooperating with authorities" (snitching), he'll still be locked up for most of the next decade and forced to pay $2 million in restitution.

Apollo and Phaedra's relationship went downhill in the months following his conviction, with Nida publicly admitting that Parks didn't even come to his sentencing.

Apollo apparently decided to return the favor by blowing off Phaedra and their two children for his last two months as a free man.

Things are about to get very crowded on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

And, we're guessing, very dramatic.

Bravo has announced that Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams will ALL return for new episodes of its hit series.

But the ladies will also be joined by two new faces:

A lot has been written about Apollo Nida and Phaedra Parks’ marriage and their future prospects, but this is eyebrow-raising even by their standards.

While Nida and Parks readily admit to having “issues” in their marriage, we now know she's slammed him for visiting strip clubs in new court filings.

Parks made the explosive claims in a deposition for her defamation case against Angela Stanton, an acquaintance who wrote a book about her.

Stanton's book, Lies of a Real Housewife, chronicles the alleged dark side and shady secrets of The Real Housewives of Atlanta star and attorney.

Parks says of how Nida met Stanton, “I mean, she’s a stripper ... she was a stripper. And you know, my husband obviously has been one to frequent strip clubs.”

When an attorney called into question her familiarity with her husband’s genitals, Phaedra Parks seemed to suggest she hadn’t seen them for a while.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta is not losing cast member Phaedra Parks. She is already filming episodes for the new season, according to multiple reports.

Rumors of Phaedra Parks leaving have run rampant in recent weeks, but she is not doing so, nor is she taking any leave of absence from the Bravo show.

Not only that, but her convicted felon husband - the Phaedra rumors began after a judge had Apollo Nida sentenced to prison - will be back on camera, too.

Well, at least until he ... you know.

Various sources have claimed Phaedra and Apollo are over - he insinuated as much recently - but whatever their status, they've been filming together.

Filming more than usual, no less.

In fact, the producers are reportedly trying to shoot as much of the two as possible before he begins serving his eight-year prison sentence for fraud.

There's a scheduling conflict for you.
