Phaedra Parks' ex-husband, Apollo Nida, will not be getting his probation terminated anytime soon.

According to legal documents obtained by Radar, a federal judge in Georgia ruled to continue Nida's criminal probation, despite his pleas to have it terminated early.

Nida — who was previously married to The Real Housewives of Atlanta star — tried arguing in court that his probation officers were getting in the way of his ability to start a new life, but the judge didn't appear to be buying it.

As OK! previously reported, Nida's attorney initially requested that his probation be dropped by insisting Nida has taken all of the right steps and effectively "reintegrated into society" following his time in prison.

The 43-year-old was originally sentenced to eight years behind bars in August 2014 following charges of identity theft and money laundering more than $2 million through several phony bank accounts. However, he was later released in 2019 and put under court-mandated probation for five years.

Nearly two years after his early release from prison, Nida was once again arrested in May 2021 for resisting a police officer without violence. He was later released on $1,000 bond, and the charges were eventually dropped in August of that year.

Following his recent run-in with the law, Nida was required to wear a GPS monitor and abide by a curfew, which he told the court, "affected his livelihood and family," to a point where it was interrupting his ability to move forward with his life. He also claimed he was not allowed to travel and therefore lost out on multiple financial opportunities because of his probation stipulations.

“Mr. Nida earned income as a guest speaker; Mr. Nida was also paid to host parties and events in various cities and states throughout the country. In fact, while on pretrial release (bond) Mr. Nida continued to travel and earn income through these same means,” his motion read, per Radar.

Despite his efforts, the judge still shot down his request, and Nida remains on probation until around 2024.

Meanwhile, the Bravo star reportedly had no involvement in the money laundering scheme and later filed to terminate their 5-year marriage while Nida was in prison. The former couple — who share two children together: Ayden, 9, and Dylan, 6 — officially got their divorce finalized in 2017.
