Apollo Nida and Phaedra Parks may have more legal drama to contend with in the coming weeks. The Real Housewives of Atlanta couple are headed for divorce, according to RumorFix.com.

Nida and Parks are reportedly already separated following Nida's indictment on several counts of fraud and identity theft. He is currently on house arrest pending trial, but could face 20 years in prison if convicted.

Parks, a lawyer herself, is allegedly looking to clear herself of any charges related to Nida's legal troubles. The reality star, who has been spotted looking considerably thinner in recent weeks, is struggling to keep her public profile clean of her husband's wrongdoings, according to sources.

But divorce may not protect Parks from the law. The attorney and businesswoman is reportedly listed as a co-owner on several of her husband's businesses, though its not clear if those businesses are under investigation by authorities.

No word on how — or if — the couple's legal or marital drama will play out on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Parks' planned spin-off show, Rich People Problems, is reportedly on hold for now.
