"Real Housewives Of Atlanta" stars Phaedra Parks And Apollo Nida may have hit a rocky spot in their marriage.

Following Apollo Nida’s arrest for fraud and identity theft in January, the pair “have been living separate lives for weeks,” Radar Online reports. Many fans of the reality show pair are blowing the rumor off as unlikely. But others have noted that since his Jan. 24 arrest in connection to the fraud allegations, Park’s social media feeds have been glaringly absent of any photos with her husband.

The couple was last photographed together in New York City on Jan. 20. They were pictured backstage with RHOA cast mates Kandi Burris and Peter Thomas after attending the Broadway play “Newsical,” which stars Burris. Parks even retweeted the photo.

Just four days after that picture was taken, Nida appeared before the U.S. District Court in Atlanta, facing charges for bank fraud and identity theft. Nida was released on a pretrial bond of $25,000.  

Since the news of her husband’s latest legal drama, Phaedra has been busy with a book tour for her advice guide, "Secrets of a Southern Belle." The tour kicked off on Jan. 31 and has continued through February, with her latest stop in North Carolina on Feb. 26. Parks appears to be enjoying herself, taking to both Twitter and Instagram to share numerous photos she’s taken with fans at her book signings. On the other hand, Park’s other half has mainly stayed put in Atlanta ahead of his trail, minus a trip to South Carolina in February that led to a picture of the star as he partied at a local nightclub on Valentine’s Day. Parks was in New Orleans, leading many to speculate trouble in the pair’s marriage. 

Nida slammed the divorce rumors in January when news of his charges first broke, tweeting that he and his wife would remain strong through his legal troubles. However, many have noted that Parks still hasn’t commented on the scandal, fueling questions about the state of the couple’s union.

Nida is scheduled to return to court for his federal trial on March 25.
