With her husband beginning another prison term, "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks is reportedly ending their marriage.

The split with Apollo Nida comes a month after he began an eight-year sentence stemming from a bank fraud case in which he pleaded guilty. This is the second long-term prison stay for Nida, who was in jail for six years between 2003 and 2009 for car theft charges.

In a statement to E! news, Phaedra's attorney Steve Honig said, the reality star "has retained an attorney with the intent of amicably ending her marriage."

The former couple have two children, Dylan and Ayden, who will be Phaedra's focus.

In a statement issued by her lawyer on the day her husband entered prison last month, he said Phaedra "is now putting all of her energy into ensuring the well-being of her two children and making decisions that are in their best interests. This situation has put a tremendous strain on Phaedra and her family and she is working hard to bring back a sense of normalcy to everyone's lives."

News of the split shouldn't come as a huge surprise. Back in May, a source told E! that the couple's marriage was in jeopardy and that Phaedra had become very uncomfortable around her husband in recent months.

"When he does speak to Phaedra, it's always about money," the source said. "He owes a huge debt in restitution and he wants to know if she's going to help him with it. 'Are you going to give me money?' is always his question. He still wants her financial support."

Meanwhile, following Apollo's eight-year sentencing, his attorney, Thomas D. Bever told E! News, "On behalf of my client Apollo, right now he feels remorse. He thought the judge was fair, and accepts his sentence, although he was hoping it would be less. Apollo is elated that this proceeding is past him and is no longer hanging over his head. It meant everything to him that his mother and brother spoke on his behalf. He's OK, and will get through this."
