Cynthia Bailey's ex-husband Peter Thomas was arrested in Miami for allegedly writing bad checks in Louisiana, police say. The part-time Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member was taken into custody on Friday at Miami International Airport, WPLG 10 reported.

Thomas, 58, was wanted on a warrant from Louisiana for allegedly writing as part of business deal. He is being held in the Miami Date County jail without bond, pending extradition to Louisiana.

The reality TV star, who occasionally makes cameo appearances on RHOA, flew into Miami for his nightclub opening in South Beach, according to WPLG.

3 days ago, he shared a photo of himself flying from Miami to Jamaica. He captioned the image, "Traveling to Jam Rock for two days of business,.. CIAA back on Friday."

Thomas and Bailey, 52, married in a wedding ceremony that aired during season 3 of RHOA. Bailey filed for divorce in 2016 and the divorce was finalized in 2017. Their union produced no children.

Bailey said the two have no hard feelings toward each other. She said he still maintains a close relationship with her adult daughter Noelle Robinson (by actor Leon), and she keeps in touch with Peter's adult children and grandchildren.

"I still kinda depend on him. Like, I want to share with him still. Well, not everything. Don't want to share everything with him anymore," she joked.

"We were friends before we were boyfriend and girlfriend, friends before we were husband and wife," she told ET in a recent interview. "He's someone that has always had my back and someone I still trust very much. He has a great relationship with Noelle, he's still very much in her life, they have their own relationship. I'm still very close to his kids. You know, new grandbabies, who - technically - they're still my grandbabies. We were still together when they were born."

Bailey is currently involved in a long distance relationship with Mike Hill. She hopes to get married again some day.

"It's coming, it's coming," she said when asked about her engagement to Hill.

    He's a mess. Nene had to buy the flowers and loan them money for the wedding.

  • Renee26

    Peter has had fraudulent business practices for a long time now.

  • Rayne

    Wow!

  • Fire & Ice

    I don't think any of these people have any real money. It's all image and a good talk game.

  • Julia Lyons

    ???????????????

  • Yup, I said it

    Peter was probably doing stuff like this while married to Cynthia but she was probably using her RHOA checks to his mess up. Good riddens to bad rubbish.

  • KcoolMuziq

    At one point Peter was going to have his own spin off show on Bravo. I know he filmed the pilot based on his club. He was the best house husband on RHOA. I guess it was not picked up.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Pete old pretty black åss ?

    That skin is smooth ? Stop scamming dirty feet Pete ?

  • Soda

    I don't think so either. People are always saying how one of those housewives is so rich because she has so many business deals. If that's so, why bother with the headache of this show? She'd have time to spend with her family instead of crying ugly tears on camera.

  • Navybeans95

    ..so many famous mug shots lately...his beard is snow white...whoever grooms him does a good job...

  • Soda

    What about Todd and Greg?

  • 2gr8ful

    Stop posting your business on Social media the authorities can follow you...

  • KcoolMuziq

    Todd(whom I worked with) is a hard worker & VERY ambitious. But sorry to say him or Greg couldn't carry their own show.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs
  • Soda

    Interesting how the man who bought all the cookies from the girl scouts to get them out of the cold ended up getting arrested days later after his pic was shared on social media, though authorities say the posts had nothing to do with it. Apparently, he was a drug dealer. https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2019/02/27/man-who-bought-540-in-cookies-to-help-girl-scouts-get-out-of-the-cold-arrested-in-drug-bust/

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Todd is a mooch???

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Yup lol! Should’ve left them out in the cold ???

  • Soda

    No, I was asking why you didn't think them to be the best husbands.

  • SmellyMel

    Sandra make a post about Jamaican men and the culture.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs
  • KcoolMuziq

    Peter overall was MORE entertaining for the show. Which is why he was offered his own pilot. U not going to get me to say ANYTHING bad about Todd or Greg .

  • lovelygamour

    the cops have had a cyber crime division atleast since '92 but these little towns didnt have it. now that facebook is so popular most precincts have a "media" cop. that cop or police helper spends a few hours each day checking all social media. especial small town cops. its how they make arrest. they are desperate for action. even regular cops will hop on facebook and look for parties. that happened to some kids in like missouri. they posted a party and the cops came. one kid had weed and they charged them all. they were black hs seniors and some of them lost scholarships and college placement. then you have to ask yourself who called the schools to tell them about the arrest. social media is becoming a tool for evil.

    i do not participate in youtube/facebook but its hard to allowed a goof with a camera.

  • Soda

    No, I didn't want you to, just wondered why you thought Peter was best. I don't watch the show but I do watch a person review it on YouTube. ?

  • lovelygamour

    i thought they even shot a few episodes but then a few fights broke out at the club. I was looking forward that show.

    p. simon van kempen will forever be the best husband.

  • lovelygamour

    and the deals would be better quality. the only one who has great deals is lisa van der pump. but i think she does the show out of ego. the rest seem to need the money.

  • Fire & Ice

    Hmmmm you're right!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Major police departments and the feds utilize facial recognition software to scan social media for people with outstanding warrants.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That would be a loooong post! ?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's the feds' facial recognition software in action. ? Criminals need to stay off social media.

  • Fire & Ice

    Two or three weren't enough, to express how you really feel ???.

  • KcoolMuziq

    If he is he's a smart one. Because he keeps getting that bag non stop.

  • Soda

    The first story I read said he didn't even give his name, just called him an anonymous donor. So he thought.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    His pic was all over social media. Feds are using facial recognition on social media now. Every photo is scanned.

  • Louisville Is4TheBirds

    Fraud azz nicca. But in his game, he van get away with it

  • JazzyBossyJen

    OT: I been sleeping on Good Girls series..Binge watching on Netflix..I hate they took it off HBO..NBC will water it down.

  • NaeNay

    I wonder if he called Cynthia to bail him out.

    Since they’re still friends and all.

  • Soda

    It was always on NBC. Maybe you're thinking of Girls, which was on HBO.

  • 305MOM E

    Please do, we have time! I don't comment most of the time but that's a discussion i will not pass up!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Of the "Real Housewives", I think Kandi Burruss is one of the few that has real money. She's been writing and producing hit songs since she was a teenager back in the early 1990's.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Who's surprised? Typical New York slickster. I don't want to say Islanders because some of my best friends are islanders.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    What the Jamaican menz done did to you sugar??

    Me, personally,I wouldnt EVER date a man from the Caribbean growing up and NEVER strayed from that as an adult???

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Peter seems like one of those people that has champagne taste and a beer budget.

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Oh ok..My bad I’m caught up now..ready for season 2 tomorrow...

  • MsPam

    Peter did say on his Instagram that big things were coming. I guess this is not what he had in mind. ???

  • Bashi22

    Peter had money and a thriving Club back in the day. His clubs in Miami was popping. Typical men with money ( black men) its all none black women plus babies. Then Cynthia marries him hmm and helps ? him out with her own coins.

  • Bashi22

    True

  • Bashi22

    Leave us alone lol ?

  • http://realitytea.com Goddess

    Most unfaithful men on the planet.

  • Bashi22

    LOL ?

  • http://realitytea.com Goddess

    I think LVP stays to market those restaurants, but then she has that other Bravo show too. Bethany Frankel and Kandi have done pretty well also.

  • Seldomseen

    Peter just go and get a job at the post office. Stop with mogul?, it’s not for you.

  • Keyshia Ray

    You got a point.

  • Yup, I said it

    Peter doesn't even have beer money he has prison hooch money otherwise known as PRUNO.

  • Seldomseen

    Lol

  • Seldomseen

    He has one daughter who recently had a baby, she is a beautiful 100% black lady.

  • Yup, I said it

    I wanna say that Leon is the best house husband on RHOA but Cynthia never married Leon.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Y R his eyes so red??

  • ClaireHuxtable

    probably both

  • ClaireHuxtable

    So true! I don't understood that urge to tell EVERYTHING.

  • Yui

  • Eileen

  • Eileen

    Oh yeah I can beleive that!

  • Ni Ni

    Poor Peter! ?

  • Lovely517

    Log off please???

  • Ni Ni

    That was just low down. When i read the story, i was saying to myself that he shouldn't have posed for that pic.

    I've stopped taking family pictures during holidays because certain family members will post you on their social media after you've asked them not to. Somebody is always watching.

  • Lovely517

    all I can say is they made a very attractive couple! Should be a crime to be that beautiful!

  • Dr. C

    That's why you shouldn't post all your business on social media. It's not just fans who keep up with your whereabouts. ????

  • Logan Roberts

    Peter better claim one of the zillion grandkids he has for income tax. That's what he gets for using Cynthia.

  • Dr. C

    Exactly. He is clearly a terrible businessman.

  • Ni Ni

    Ikr, i mean he should've realized at least around 40 that clubs wasn't a lucrative career, for him at least.

  • Ni Ni

    I would've watched it. He's bad at business, but i like him.

  • mzwhang90210

    Peter needs a liver flush to get those eyes back white.
    I never cottened to Peter. I can't believe Cynthia didn't stay with Leon, but married Uncle Ben.
    Everytime I see Peter I get an urge to make rice.
    After Peter's baby mamma was on social media, admonishing their son for saying he was Black, (she was like "You are not Black, you are brown..")
    And he shuffled on social media to take up for that nonsense..and cursed people out who took offense to her being so bothered by her son claiming his Blackness...I was really done with this clown.

  • JENNYJONES1

    PETER WROTE A LOT OF BAD CHECKS TO EMPLOYEES WHEN HE HAD HIS CLUB ON COURTLAND, I THINK IT WAS CALLED 201 COURTLAND NOW IT'S HARLEM NIGHTS. BAD CHECKS AND EMPLOYEES NEVER PAID. I'M SURE PLENTY OF THEM ARE LAUGHING THEIR ASSES OFF RIGHT NOW ABOUT HIS ARREST. THEY COULD BE PROSECUTOR WITNESSES. SMH!!!!.......JENNY JONES!!!

  • tintin

    And this is what i think he was doing to Cynthia. He was using her name and money without her permission and i think thats why she left him. I think he was robbing her, not so blindly but he probably felt as her husband he had all rights to her funds and credit

  • Shamwow
  • Shamwow

    Never cared for nor about this man. Cynthia was right to move on. Should have slept with her wallet under her pillow when they were together. NEXT.

  • Truth7981

    The fact that he even used a check let you know what was up.

  • Truth7981

    I would have loved if the cop was black not "brown" with a blonde not "brown" wig on. Peter getting everything he deserves!

  • Truth7981

    Peter probably cried weee weee weeee all the way to the jail cell.

  • Truth7981

    Not even a beer budget..more like kool laid packets.

  • Kimocha

    Lmaooo!!!

  • WinterIsComing

    I cant even imagine what lockups like for him rite now!!!

  • Wayup!

    this was the reason why he asked them to take the post down...but it was too late

  • Wayup!

    and the answer is.....YES

  • Truth7981

    Peter need to call that lady that bailed r kelly out.

  • Truth7981

    He must of meant that big busta brown dude in the pin wanting to grind his big ol penis on Peter beard!

  • Truth7981

    Well damn they need to use that software to find my baby daddy he been missing in action for a while.

  • Truth7981

    Don't get me started..

  • Reenaface

    Dude's eyes are made red in his mugshot pic. CDAN outed Peter as being a bad business man ant that Cynthia that as well as the cast of RHOA would more money if it wasn't for doing business with him. It was said in jest.

  • Reenaface

    I'm glad someone said it, I hope he doesn't MJB Kandi.

  • Reenaface

    Yep, just like Amex is suing Kim Z for 215k.

  • Coy little wink

    Dammm....papa Smurf do better

  • 100milesperhour

    That's not irresponsibility, it's deliberate. Writing checks for business deals means big checks he knew he couldn't cover.

  • 100milesperhour

    He leased a whole building w/o telling her. She walked in & he's like, here's the new Bailey Agency location. She already had a spot elsewhere. He bought an expensive car & didn't say shat. Cuzzed her out when she said something.

  • Blak

    Looking like a beedee eyes papa Smurf! "We were friends before we were boyfriend and girlfriend, friends before we were husband and wife" dayum are these words coming from the mouth of an adult or a 12 year old?

    That catch a predator dude just got arrested for the same thing...they spun it like he's fell on hard times

  • Meme

    I was being facetious because i didnt really think they would but you say yes? Wow....i bet he's regretting opening that door to the girl scouts in the rain next time he'll just look out of the window (from the safety of his netty curtains) as the rain drenches them!

  • Meme
  • Reenaface

    I guess he would have to be zooted if he's ripping people off in business scams, waiting for the hammer to fall.

  • currvalicious

    Yeah, that was awful. He need to get a loan from that broke asz bych. Good luck.

    It's on Radar's website I read about it last week. I guess she used the card for all of her and Brielle's surgery. Kroy accepted the summons when they served her with court papers for failing to make the minimum payments on the card. Kroy has to testify on her behalf or bear witness or something to the matter. Kroy's a dumb ass for giving up a lucrative NFL career for white trash.

  • SmellyMel

    True but it’s something about dem damn Jamaicans.

  • SmellyMel

    I’m trying but I always gravitate to them and I’m Jamaican also.

    These tv personalities are broke.

  • Reenaface

    But they front so much with the leased Range Rovers, Louis Vuitton bags, red bottoms, huge expensive diamond wedding rings that they love to twirl around their fingers so the reflection shows on the cameras. The leased mansions with no furniture in it .no sense of decorating style because all the money goes on looking fresh.?

  • Fire & Ice

    Pretty much.

  • Renee Bee

    Bwahahaha! You ain't right.

  • HelloToni

    I agree with you....

  • HelloToni

    Who still writes and accepts checks anymore? And why does she think he can open a successful club in Miami when he could not do it Atlanta. He thinks way too much of himself.

  • Hazel

    I read somewhere that they were not only bad, but counterfeit. Seems like he's been crooked for a long time. I wonder if they can tie him to Apollo's crimes...

  • Renita

    He knew there wasn't any money in that account. It could have been a closed account and he wrote the check anyway. Peter has been a wantapreneur for years.

  • Renita

    In the divorce he let her keep the house and she sold it. That's probably why he let her keep it. He couldn't pay her straight out.

  • Renita

    Did they say how much the check was? It had to be a significant amount to get locked up.

  • Ms. Cree

    Whewww chile! Cynthia dogged a bullet.

  • Bashi22

    Lol one love

  • Wreckognize Game

    Cynthia is trying to make her relationship with Peter the same as the one she has with Leon. The problem is that Peter does not have Leon’s character.

  • SpiceGirl

    Looks around...I still write checks......

  • TBeezy

    He and Jussie Smollett writing checks out here LMBO!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Writing checks they a**es can't cash!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    So does my momma, but only when she can't find her debit card.

  • SpiceGirl

    Lol...sounds about right....I've done it.....

  • Hazel

    I hope Cynthia demands that her daughter cut ties with this fool, as should she. No bueno. What woman would CHOOSE to maintain ties with a thief whilst trying to forge a new relationship with a legit public figure? Run Mike, Run...her poor judgement will bring you and your career burning down in flames.

  • Hazel

    Nor does he have her child! Thief, BE GONE!

  • Hazel

    He bought that car during the time Apollo was forging car titles. Mark my word, they will link him to Apollo's fraud case.
