Back On the Market: Phaedra Parks and DJ Tone Kapone Split

Phaedra Parks is a single mom again. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star has reportedly split from her young boyfriend, Tone Kapone.

According to The Jasmine Brand, Phaedra, 45, and the 30-something Chicago radio DJ have called it quits.

The split comes amid rumors that Phaedra may be making a return to Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta. Phaedra was kicked off the show after she locked horns with RHOA regular Kandi Burruss.

Kandi as publicly stated she will not return to the show if Phaedra is on the set.

The mom-of-2 took her relationship with Tone public in January by posting a photo that showed them attending a New Year’s Eve party in Chicago.

Most of Phaedra’s Instagram.com followers were supportive, but a few side-eyed the union.

One IG user wrote, “Something about the eyes don’t look right..”

Her followers had good reason to be skeptical since most young men are genetically wired to prefer women of childbearing age. Phaedra is well past child bearing age.

The attorney and entrepreneur has two sons, Dylan and Ayden, by ex-husband Apollo Nida who is currently doing time in the state pen for white collar crimes.

    This was a long distance relationship that I didn’t think would last. They should’ve just left it as F buddies and stayed out the public eye.

  • 9 Mind
  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    This relationship was for publicity…she needed a way in for a new Peach…Tone gives me “rent-a-man” vibes…I wonder how much he charges for his services…

  • Yoni7

    Cuffing season is OFFICIALLY over. I swear the minute it gets hot outside, folks get to fighting and breaking up. Dudes ain’t scared to get put out because it ain’t too cold to sleep outside. Single all summer 2019.

  • LexGirl

    So she was basically doing what she accused Kenya of doing with Walter, paying a man?!?!?! lol

  • Yoni7

    She favors Niecy Nash in that first pic.

  • Gloria

    Damn that ended quick. I feel embarrassed for people who announce (often) their new lover on social media, just to break up a few months later. Yikes.

  • Coy little wink

    These light skinned ninjas can’t handle my Phae Phae…she is a lot to deal with..

  • Yoni7

    I do too. I’m glad I don’t need validation for my life choices.

  • Capricornlady

    Shes toxic I believe..But I also know Tone is for everybody(I live in Chicago area)

  • Coy little wink

    Lol…wow

  • Soda

    “Kandi has publicly stated she will not return to the show if Phaedra is on the set. ”
    If that’s true, please bring Phaedra back. I don’t even watch the show but I get sick of hearing about how Kandi doesn’t need the show because she’s so rich and has so many other things to do.

  • OvertheMississippi

    When are they gonna learn? Been with my hubby since 1992. We post on anniversary, mother’s and father’s day, Valentine’s Day, and kids’ birthday. Just acknowledgments.

  • SpillyNillie

    He has the “I’m for errbody” look….

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Well, hopefully they had fun, while it lasted!

    I don’t think most long-distance relationships work, and younger men have needs!

    Like having kids, their wife fitting in with their circle of friends, and being the lead, as a couple, otherwise, it’s get what you can for most!

  • SpillyNillie

    I’m trying to cuff and be single…is that possible?

  • Coy little wink

    Kandi is a bama OMG idc how much dough she has ?

  • ALLMINE?

    Was she upset her babies came out brown skin?

  • ALLMINE?

    She looked a lil too mature for this guy.

  • EasyBreezy

    Chile….

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Of course it was…..because it wasn’t really.nothing in the beginning. When have you ever seen them together? She is announcing him…..he is not announcing her. Even when she was married……To me it even seemed like she was waaaay more into Apollo than he was into her. She took care of him that man didn’t even work.

    Ain’t nobody checking for Phaedra….not for real anyway.

  • iWasteTime

    He was fine and I’m sure scratched that itch

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    People actually “need” validation from social media. They want the attention….they hope for the “likes”. He was attractive and young and she wanted to show the world because she’s older. Phaedra is the worse kind….so happy to have a light skinned man…and she make sure that she takes care of them. She is sad.

  • B.Loveitt

    I think she’s cute with her “built close” self. Shell find a new toy soon.

  • Applebootay

    Where are the receipts? Did she publicly announce it? Did he? Just according to the Jasmine Brand Huh? I’m such a skeptic on ERRThang, I don’t believe break ups or unions until I can see it for myself or show me some receipts….

  • isaiit

    Yes and it’s fun

  • Karen Brady

    Ain’t nobody checking for Phaedra….not for real anyway. That part.

  • Karen Brady

    Thank you.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Phaedra has a type ?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    OOH don’t do that ?

    …cuz the bish clearly has a type.

  • Seldomseen

    What is a Bama

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Someone please find Phaedra a stylist because every thing she wears emphasizes her short dumpy build.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I aint gone lie…I love a redbone or a hershey kiss (milk or dark) but the redbones have issues…they always gotta be the loudest or toughest in the room cause they were called Pretty Ricky all they damn life..

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    She love em tho…

  • Renee26

    Built close ???

  • Renee26

    He looks goofy … Probably was

  • Soon2BWife

    He looks like a f boy. ??

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    This was for her to get back on the show I didn’t think for one sec this was real even though he does favor apollo

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    THATs cuz she short and any lil born of thickness or weight makes us short women look like or body parts are smushed together

  • KcoolMuziq

    So how will they work in Apollo now that Phaedra can’t come back?

  • Coy little wink

    Loloololol. It’s just a saying…i’d define it as country trash…

  • Reina1718

    Please that DJ into himself!

  • Shawty

    I’m not sure she’s past the child bearing years. Women are having babies late in life at this point and I’m sure if she REALLY wanted one she could make that happen. It is no longer taboo using a surrogate so if that was a contingency on her relationship, if she wanted that I’m sure she would have made that happen. She waiting on Apollo folks!

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Chile I went out with a younger guy once ????? We were talking about something and he said “ who learned you that?” I waited until he went to the bathroom and sprinted to my car. There is nothing like a seasoned grown azz man!! 40+ me please ? https://media0.giphy.com/media/xULW8t4AwvbzYWIWxq/giphy.gif

  • tintin

    he does look like Apollo. Looks like she wants that ol’ thang back.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I predict that JLo and Arod are next due to the things they have been saying and doing lately.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I laughed too hard at this. I imagined the Gabriel Union scene with the guy that was “40 Shawty” ?

  • Yoni7

    Yep. Very much so.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Hunny I couldn’t wait til he went to the bathroom?

  • Wreckognize Game

    Until somebody catches feelings ??

  • Topic Influencer

    Awe man. Im crine. He coulda just been country as hell vs just young minded as all get out. Im cracking UP at the visual

  • WutizstillHERE!

    My ex 6’6″ was 10 years my jr..sex great..conversation limited..the benefit was he always dated older so his maturity was almost there..

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Dub my brain wouldn’t even process the shyt. I was looking at him with a blank stAre like Kelly Bundy?????

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    Oh. Dust thyself off and try again

  • Guess Who

    Gross

  • Navybeans95

    She definitely has a type…Light skin rapper criminals….ugh.. aim higher ma’am…u have so much going for you and u cute….

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Oh I remember your six footer chile ??

  • dru and neil

    Lots of open faced rompers going on…

  • that_VA_thickchick

    I said that and was called a hater. LOL

  • dru and neil

    This is true! The most insecure man I ever was with was mixed race, and he had raging insecurities because of his skin color. He was a huge liar, possessive and b*tchy. He admitted to me that he felt like he needed to go harder at everything to be accepted as a black man.

  • dru and neil

    She seems like the type to be hung up on light vs. dark, she’s country enough. The brown skin boy actually looks the most like Apollo, he’s going to be a little lady killer.

  • ALLMINE?

    Everybody a hater.. she does look really mature. Not “OLD” just extremely seasoned ?

  • dru and neil

    You can tell by the way she dresses that she’s country. That horrendous red rooster hair season 2 gave it away.

  • that_VA_thickchick

    Right. Like they just didn’t match. Even in photos. She’s in a dress and heels and he is in jeans, tee shirt, and sneakers. Just weird.

  • Coy little wink

    Red rooster hair…definitely a giveaway ?

  • Logan Roberts

    Looking like mother & son. No ma’am.

  • Sha

    That’s what I’m talking about, but them youngins be trying.

  • Sha

    Hmmmmm

  • TamG

    She removed all past photos of him from her IG. He did the same with her pics.

  • Trace da Ace

    oh well….she will find another…hopefully in her age bracket….better luck next time Phae Phae!!!

  • TamG

    He made a comment a while back that he was “Chicago forever,” that he’d “never” leave. Given Phaedra’s roots and large social network in Atlanta, I don’t see her leaving Atlanta either. Thus, the relationship (if it was real) was at an impasse anyway.

    I feel kinda bad for her. This guy I think is college-educated and had a real job somewhat in the entertainment field like her. I liked them together. He had much more substance than her ignorant, perpetually felonious ex-husband.

  • Parent

    Phaedra love herself a light skin man. She fine as hell to me though. Get you some dark chocolate girl..

  • Society has changed

    Pha Pha looks uncomfortable in everything I’ve seen her wear. Clothes look like they hurt like hell!

  • Society has changed

    Tell me about it!!!! 50+, suited and booted please for this grown 48 year old woman!!!

  • Applebootay

    Awwwwww damn…damn….damn….

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    She needs to get together with Dereck J because both of them have those wide linebacker shoulders and find someone who can assist them with something flattering.
    Phaedra is too thick for that style and the stripes make her look bigger.

  • PrettyMeka08

    Sleep outside!!! ? it’s not a good idea to get involved with a guy if he has an option to sleep outside.

  • Kimberly King

    They were cute together to me. Too bad. Does she have a thing for lightskin menzzz?

    And I’ll take Kandi over Phaedra any single day.

  • Yoni7

    If they’ve been shacking up with someone the whole cold season, then there is the option.

  • dru and neil

    I was so annoyed when she had the nerve to do a workout video, meaty as she was. It was like “you think this is good enough for black women hun?”

  • Mz_Opinionated

    That was fast! And that pink print striped outfit distracts from the camel toe…I guess…because it’s awful close ?

  • justlooking

    Giselle said that she Heard…that Phaedra and Jamal were dating..he denied it . But that more up her alley. Tone reminded me of her upstanding husband, whom kept his pickle warm with other ladies..
    Allegedly https://media3.giphy.com/media/3o85xmlKFUVQo2L4jK/giphy.gif

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Hmmm was his vernacular because he was southern maybe? My ex from Louisiana used to speak that way.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    LOL! Wow and EWW!

  • Prince Jarmajesty II

    Once he realized she wasn’t getting back on RHOA he BOUNCED!!! Let me slide in his DMs in case he looking for a rebound

  • MzApple

    he foineee

  • B.Loveitt

    Smushed…?

  • MsSapphire9800

    Phaedra will forever be single…she has hit that 50 yr old mark but still looking for young boys to lay with. What happen to all her jobs..nevermind we knew they were not real. She need to find a stable man in her age group and take her time and build a solid relationship.

  • Bree

    I’m disappointed in Phaedra. There has to be a reason she can’t find a decent, God fearing family man, hard working attorney, judge, business executive in Atlanta that makes just as much as she does. She has two beautiful babies. She shouldn’t be looking for a one night stand and if she is so be it. But don’t blast a fling all over IG. I don’t know why people do that. Hell before my husband, I stayed single for over five years. And my last relationship was over three months before anyone knew.

  • Bree

    Has it been confirmed that she is going back?! And why would he jump ship if she is?

  • Bree

    I think housewives was a good revival for Kandi. I personally believe it is time for her to leave, she should have resigned after the situation with Porsha and Phaedra. Porsha should have resigned or gotten the boot too. She brings eye candy to the show but that is all. I like the OGs, Nene, Sheree, and Kim. They haven’t found the right recipe for this show other then those three. Phaedra and Kenya were good for TV.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    No Chile lol my ex husband is from New Orleans so I’m familiar. There were other slip ups that I didn’t mention????? The entire conversation was just off

  • kboogie

    I went to undergrad and grad school in NOLA…. and that is definitely a southern thing…. Or @ least
    in NOLA, but lawd…. I can only take them talking like that in the south…. #Chi-Towngal… ?

  • Mz_Opinionated

    ? I tried…and I completely understand

  • Mz_Opinionated

    I agree…Southerners definitely speak differently and Louisiana is an entirely different speech ??

  • Bashi22

    Well if it’s work for Kenya Moore as for her formula and tweaks it a bit to suit you Phaedra.

  • Intellectual by Nature!

    Shouldn’t she be a decent, God-fearing woman herself first to attract these things?

  • The Real Anonymouse

    Thank you!

  • The Real Anonymouse

    She attracts what she puts out. And that’s not much. All this attorney and entrepreneur garbage is a cover up for what she really is.

  • Bree

    You’re absolutely correct!

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    ? me too… the attempt was there

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    My sentiments EXACTLY!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    It’s great have confidence…..BUT She’s just phoney baloney!! All that Southern Bell crap and all this fantasy thinking like she some clean cut royal queen of Georgia!! Bring it down a notch. NOBODY DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THAT! I watched that sure maybe a total of 4 times… Just corny get into them. These heifers ….

    Why does shorty bump Phaedra look like one of the munchkins? Put her right in the center and you can’t tell the difference.

  • WhoKnew

    Agreed. People need to stop tellin all their biz ness.

  • Bree

    I don’t get why its important for the world to know what is going on in someone’s life. Although entertaining, I’m not interested in putting my personal business on front street. What my husband and I share is too sacred for the Gram!

  • SG

    ????

  • Junkanoo

    Not sure what the photo was intended for but it looks like daytime why are her breasts on display in the middle of the day don’t people wait until night time events to break the boobs out

  • WhoKnew

    Neither do I. Too sacred for the gram is right!

  • Malificent

    She thought they were really going to be together. She liked him probably more than he liked her. He was a look for her and she was thinking of making her light skinded daughter with him. She was the predator and he was the prey that got away.

  • Malificent

    Look suh (in Jamaican accent). Look at her dark hands and the rest of her body. She don’t want nothing darker than her.

    He denied the children he fathered too. He was indeed Mr chocolate.

  • Frank Blunt

    According to Apollo, the theory on a dawter may be the output of these relations ?

  • Kimberly King

    It’s unfortunate, if it’s true. But I remember the chicks on RHOA dating “Mr. Chocolate” lol. Chocolate skin is so silky, smooth and beautiful. I’m lightskin, but I find myself gravitating and attracting brown and darkskin men. However, I don’t have a preference when it comes to things like that. It’s not an important factor. As long as my man is a black man, I’m not concerned about his shade of black.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Yeeeepppp! I am a reformed (on here that is) bad girl ROFL..dang you Sandra Lenay Jenkins ROSE! ROFL!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    She don’t like men her age. She like young arm candy that she can control. She wants to be the man in the relationship and she knows if she gets a man her age that will not happened.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Lol I know that’s right. He is a cutie.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Shen does look like she has to stop breathing to be able to put her clothes on. She always looks stuffed.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    She had to one up Apollo and get herself a boo before he gets out but poor phae couldn’t hold on to him long enough.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    well all they seem to do is unfollow each other these days. My out of touch ass knows nothing about “following,” “liking” or sliding in someone’s DM’s. I stay my ass off of social media and get my daily dose of gossip by reading it here. lol

  • YellowSauce

    She was too good at being evil to be a good person …what she did to kandi was disgusting and I believe she got apollo locked up … She makes up things and has been doing it her whole life .. I don’t need to know her personally to know that

    I am sooooooooooooo tired of all these stupid manchild rappers, scanky rapper heifers I am just soooooooooooooo tired of these folks no benefit to the black community just a hot ass mess! smh…All cultures have a backyard but of course black folks got to turn it up loud and make the backyard the front yard we the only folks who backwards like that but I guess its called keeping it real all the way to the bottom thinking its the top. muslims run a close second with that sharia mess but at least their women are covered so you cant see the bruises Yes I said it. Phadra need to sit her proper church behind down somewhere and stop dating emotionally and financially unavailable men!
