Phaedra Parks is happily in love with her new man, and she can’t stop flaunting their relationship on social media. The pair spent their first Valentine’s Day at the NBA All-Stars game, and Parks looked stunning for the occasion.
The former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” and her new boyfriend, radio DJ Tone Kapone, were the picture-perfect couple as they posed for the camera on their Valentine’s Day celebration, which took place at the NBA All-Stars weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Phaedra looked stunning wearing a body-hugging white dress with a cut-out on the chest area that put her cleavage on display, a Fendi handbag, and black heels. Kapone, who posed with his hands on Parks’ hips, rocked a navy suit and white shirt.
Both stars smiled brightly to the camera, and Phaedra shared her happiness with fans by captioning her Instagram post with:
“I never thought I would smile like this again. Thank you @tonekapone33 for making everyday special. I can’t imagine life without us #OneLastDance #Allstar.”
Fans took over the comment section to gush about the lovely couple, with most congratulating Phaedra for finding a man that makes her glow with joy. “That smile looks good on you so happy for you,” wrote one user.
Another added, “1,000 real smiles can't lie about true happiness, and you're smiling Gurl. You deserve these blessings,” and a third one chimed in to say, “Love seeing you in love again.”
Even though Phaedra and Tone have been dating for almost four months, she made the relationship Instagram official on New Year’s Day, when she shared a pic with Kapone and captioned “2019 we ready.”
Still, some fans were confused about the status of their relationship, until Tone came forward to finally put rumors to rest and confirmed the news on an Instagram live. “Yes, me and Phaedra are dating. Ok, cool. Is that it? That's the big moment everybody was waiting for,” he said.
“Yeah, it was kind of self-explanatory on her page. I didn't want to re-post it because it seemed like it would have been super weird. Like, yeah, look at me. If you know anybody that knows me, I'm not that kind of guy."
“I’m not rushing into that you know, but I’m very fond of him, and we adore each other … [He’s] a great guy. He’s super supportive. He’s everything I’ve prayed for and more.”
Tone is Phaedra’s first official boyfriend after her split from Apollo Nida in 2014. They were married for five years, and most of their relationship was shown the public through “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
However, after Nida was incarcerated for identity theft and bank fraud, and sentenced to eight years behind bars, Parks filed for divorce. It took the former couple three years to settle a divorce agreement, which was completed in August 2017.
Nida and Parks share the custody of their sons, Ayden, 8, and Dylan, 5. However, the details about spousal support and their property division remain confidential.
Apollo is now engaged to realtor Sherien Almufti, and he’s set to be released from prison in 2020.
