Phaedra Parks Representing Former Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed In Divorce Case
Langford-Reed filed for divorce from the two-term mayor in September, citing the marriage was irretrievably broken and that there was no hope for reconciliation.
The pair had been married since 2014 and share a five-year-old daughter, Maria. Langford-Reed said that she and the child still live in the family home and asked the judge for primary custody, child support and their assets split down the middle.
She also wants any debts accumulated during their union to be Reed’s responsibility, according to her divorce complaint.
Parks has not yet responded to the case on Reed’s behalf, but perhaps Parks, who endured a public divorce battle with Apollo Nida, can give Reed advice on how to handle a split in the public eye.
Langford-Reed is being represented by a well known successful celebrity lawyer, Randy Kessler, who was has represented a bevy of stars.
If you ask me, Mayor Reed needs a new attorney. To my knowledge, Phaedra does not have a good track record when it comes to legal representation and legal wins. Even Bobby Brown threw shade at Phaedra in his autobiography, “Every Little Step.” Bobby said the following:
“My lawyer at the time was a black woman named Phaedra Parks, who went on to become a reality television star on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Her later television stardom didn’t surprise me because she always seemed like she was craving attention and publicity.
Every time I stepped into the courtroom when she [Phaedra Parks] was my lawyer, there would always be a host of television cameras. It was as if she had her own traveling media contingent. I even complained to her about it, telling her I didn’t like having the press there every time I approached the courthouse.
I won’t cast aspersions on her [Phaedra Parks] lawyering skills, but I will say that when she was my lawyer, I usually wound up going to jail.”
Here is a clip of Phaedra representing Bobby.
