Parks vs Stanton: Phaedra Parks Accuses Angela Stanton Of Extortion Despite Having No Evidence

Phaedra Parks Deposition: Phaedra Parks Accuses Angela Stanton of Trying To Extort Her, But Has No Evidence. 

Remember the interview that Apollo Nida gave to Sister2Sister?

Read: Apollo Nida Claims He introduced Angela Stanton to Phaedra Parks

In that interview, the interviewer asks Apollo Nida about Angela Stanton, Apollo claimed he “held the key”, Apollo sure made a mess for his wife Phaedra. This is why you should not lie, you can’t keep track of the truth. Here is a snippet of that interview, then below is an extract of the deposition.

Apollo: Oh, man. I read something about her today. First of all, my wife has never, ever committed any type of crime.

I know her from the past. This is exactly how it happened. I’ve had dispositions on this throughout Phaedra’s lawsuit. I’ve spoken to numerous attorneys because I hold the key.. 

Jamie: Is she saying that she has, though?

Apollo: Angela will say whatever she wants to say.

Jamie: How do you know Angela?

Apollo: I know her from the past. This is exactly how it happened. I’ve had dispositions on this throughout Phaedra’s lawsuit. I’ve spoken to numerous attorneysbecause I hold the key.
 Jamie: Why is she saying these things?

                      
Apollo: Okay. Angela was dealing with a dude named Drama. I don’t know if y’all read her book. Some of the stuff is facts; a lot isn’t.
Jamie: Is that DJ Drama?

Apollo: No, not DJ Drama. No, no, no. This is a kid who used to rap. Phaedra was basically his mentor or whatever, got him from one contract to another. But anyway, I meet Drama. He was still in the streets. Phaedra was trying to get him on the right path. I was in the streets. And at this point I was dealing with and everything. I met Angela through Drama, not through Phaedra.
She’s never been indicted with me; she’s never been indicted with Phaedra; she’s never been indicted for racketeering. At the end of the day, how are you claiming that you were indicted on a federal racketeering charge when that’s a lie? You’re saying that you dealt with Phaedra on checks the 2nd and 3rd; that’s a lie.
So she felt like “Oh, I don’t have any money, so let me call Phaedra,” because I knew her through Drama. “Let me call her to represent me.”

The Deposition

Before we begin, these are documents that are important

Phaedra Parks vs Vibe Holdings Augustus Publishing lawsuit

Phaedra Parks vs Vibe – Settlement Offer

Phaedra Parks vs Vibe – Dismissed

MR. RADFORD: Let’s take a quick break.

(Recess from 4:01 p.m. to 4:05 p.m.)

Q. (By Mr. Radford) Did you and your husband ever discuss reaching out to Ms. Stanton after you learned after you learned she was intending to write a book to discuss resolving any disputes you had with her?

A. I don’t know I mean –

Q. Is that the extent to your answer, I don’t know?

A. I mean, you k now, we discuss a lot of things, you know —

Q. Does that complete your answer?

A. It does.

Q. Okay. I guess you’re aware that your husband gave an interview with a magazine called Sister 2 Sister in which he discussed Ms Stanton and her case?

A. Yeah. I’m aware he gave an interview. I haven’t read the interview, but I’m aware that he did give one.

(Defendant’s Exhibit 6 was marked for identification.)

Q. Well, let me show you what I’ll represent to you to be a copy of portions of this interview he gave.  And I understand, you can’t you know authenticate the document.  If you take a look at the second page, according to this transcript, the third question down, someone named Jamie, who I guess is the interviewer states; “How do you know Angela?” And he [Apollo] answers, “I know her from the past. This is exactly what happened.

Q. Well, let me show you what I’ll represent to you to be a copy of portions of this interview he gave.  And I understand, you can’t you know authenticate the document.  If you take a look at the second page, according to this transcript, the third question down, someone named Jamie, who I guess is the interviewer states; “How do you know Angela?” And he [Apollo] answers, “I know her from the past. This is exactly what happened. I’ve had dispositions on this throughout Phaedra’s lawsuit. I’ve spoken to numerous attorneys because I hold the key”

You don’t dispute, I guess, that your husband knew Ms. Stanton in addition to you know her, correct?

A.  He obviously says here he does know her.

  1. Okay. Because you said you knew her because she was the girlfriend or she was dating one of your clients?

A. Uh-huh

Q. Obviously, why would Mr. Nida – your husband, how would he know her? Do you know?

  1. Well, you would need to ask him.

Q. So you don’t have any idea how your husband would know Ms. Stanton, is that right?

A. Yeah. You would need to ask him.

Q. Okay. And you’re not aware of any interactions Ms Stanton would have had with your husband by merit of you representing the boyfriend of someone Ms. Stanton was dating, is that correct?

A. Huh?

Q. Okay.

A. That’s how we met.

Q. And you’re not aware of any reason why Mr. Nida would have been privy to that relationship, is that fair to say?

Note: Mr. Rafford repeats the question again and Phaedra says,

A. That doesn’t really make – say that again – because I’m –

Q. Well, let me as you this: Are you aware or did you ever witness any event in which Mr. Nida, your husband, met or interacted with Ms. Stanton?

A. Not that I recall.

Q. Okay. So if he were to say, if Mr. Nida were to say, I know Angela Stanton, you would have no way to know how he would know her, is that correct?

A. I mean, it’s Atlanta. I mean, this is not the biggest town.

Q. Okay. So as far as you know, they know each other as just coincidence.

A. I mean you know, possibly. I mean, she’s a stripper.  She was a stripper.

Q. Okay.

A. And, you know, my husband obviously has been one to frequent strip clubs.

  1. Okay.

A. So, I mean, it’s numerous ways he could have obviously known her.

Q. So your testimony is, to your knowledge, Mr. Nida didn’t have any connection to Ms. Stanton through you?

A. I mean, I don’t think their connection was through me, no, I do not.

Q. It would have just been a coincidence, is that right?

Note: Another page of this nonsense. When Mr Radford asks, “Did you ever discuss your relationship with Ms. Stanton” Phaedra responds, “say that again” It’s frustrating. But when you tell the truth, you don’t have think about your answers.  Angela claims she met Apollo through Phaedra, with Apollo’s track record along with Phaedra’s, I believe Angela. . I believe Angela because she has told the same story from day 1.  Back to the deposition. Mr. Radford then asks if Phaedra ever discussed Apollo with Angela, same game, “huh” or, “say that again” or “I mean” then Mr. Radford asks;

Q. Well, I’m going to ask you a question; and I’m not saying this to embarrass anybody because of really specific detail. Did you ever tell Ms. Stanton that Mr. Nida only had one testicle?

[Note: Stop Laughing!]

A. I don’t believe so.

Q. Is that a fact, that he only has one testicle?

A. That is not a fact.

Q. All right.  Again,  I’m not trying to –

A. No, no, no, that’s obviously not a fact.. The last time I saw it, he had two.

Q. Understood.  When he says, “I’ve had disposistions in this throughout Phaedra’s lawsuit” it sounds like he is trying to say he has had depositions on this.  Do you know if he has ever given any kind of –

A. No, he’s never given a deposition so I don’t yeah –

Q. Okay.

A. I don’t know what he is talking about there.

[ The Parties then talk about the other lawsuit,Apollo gave his, “Dispositions” on that suit LOL! They then talk more about the interview Apollo gave Sister2sister in the case of Phaedra Parks vs Vibe Holding LLC.  As I said before, it looks like they settled for a mere $2,500.00 See: Phaedra Parks vs Vibe – Settlement Offer The case file on record right after the Settlement offer is the Dismissal . I think Phaedra thought, Vibe settled so I will get Angela. Shaking My Head!]

Q. If you look at the third page of this exhibit at the very top, a statement that’s attributed to him, third line down, in this context, he’s talking about, I guess, a conversation between you and him after Ms Stanton, I guess, allegedly contacted on of you all or one of you all contacted her.  And he says, “I said to her” talking about you, “back then when this was happening, I want to say 2010 – “Let’s sit down and talk to her” And then it sounds like he says that you said no. “That’s how she is and that’s probably part of where we are to this point” Do you recall having a conversation with him about MS. Stanton around the time frame that he is talking about here or similar to what he’s talking about here?

A. I’m sure if he recalls a conversation, we probably had one. But I don’t – I would never allow someone to extort money out of me.

Q. Okay.

A. So I would never, you know, entertain someone who it trying to extort me.

Q. Well, I haven’t seen any evidence that she tried to extort you.

A. Okay.

(Note: SMDH!)

Q. Do you have some evidence that she tried to extort you, that she said I won’t write the book if you pay me some money, anything like that? Do you have any evidence of that?

A. No, because I have never talked to her.

[Note: This is becoming a joke!]

Q. Okay.

A. But  I know obviously, you know, her purpose in doing this is to obviously to try to make money off of my success and not her own hard work.

[Note: That statement reminds me of Sheree Whitfeild’s opening line on Season 1, “Everybody is intimidated by my success” BAWHAAA!

Q. Okay. So, neither herself or through an intermediary or through any form did she ever say that she would withhold publishing a book if you paid her money?

A. I can’t say that because I don’t know that to be true; but, I personally, I never spoke to her.

Q. Okay, Well, I mean, I think you’re kind of talking around the question that has a simple answer to it.  [Note Question is repeated]

A. I believe there was some talk about that. I mean, you know, I don’t want to specifically say where I heard it from.  I would have to obviously ask. But, I mean, yeah, I believe that she obviously wanted to extort money from me.

Q. Well, you say there was talk of that. I mean, that’s not a very good extortion attempt if I can’t even get the message to the person who I’m try to extort. Who told you this?

A. I’ll just leave it alone because I can’t – I can’t recall now what the exact conversation was.  But I know obviously – I don’t know if maybe it was something my husband said. I don’t know. But I remember someone said, well, you, I mean; it’s always about money with her.

Q. So you heard someone speculate that she wanted some money?

A. Yes, sir.

Q. Okay.  But you don’t have any evidence or personal knowledge that she actually attempted to extort you for any money, correct?

A. No, I don’t believe so.

Q. Okay.

A. But if I locate some, I will obviously send it to you.

Q. I would imagine that is something that would have been front and center in this lawsuit.  You also sued Vibe Magazine and Augustus Publishing as part of your defamation case, is that correct?

A. That is correct.

Q. Okay.  And as part of that settlement, each of them agreed to discontinue promotion of the book, is that correct?

A. I don’t believe I can discuss that.

Q. Well, I’m going to ask you the question again; and you can tell me you’re refusing to answer. It’s fine. But is true, that part of your agreement with them was that they would stop promoting the book?

MR. ANDREW: Subject to a confidentiality provision

MR RADFORD: What?

MR. ANDREW: Subject to a confidentiality provision of the agreement.

THE WITNESS: Subject to the confidentiality of the agreement.

[That had to be Phaedra!

This is where it’s ridiculous how un prepared Phaedra Parks, an attorney is. No, I am not saying she should have had or known all the questions, however, Phaedra is the Plaintiff in this case, part of the advantage Phaedra has is Vibe settling, she should know WHEN VIBE SETTLED. This is frustrating to read.

Phaedra Answers when she settled with vibe

You have to remember, Phaedra claimed to have not known Angela or at least, not friends with Angela. James Radford gets Phae

Q. Do you dispute that you had Ms. Stanton in
your home?
A. She’s been by one of my homes, uh-huh.
Q. Okay. Which one was that?
A. The one on Oregon Trail.
Q. Okay. Is it your testimony that she only
came to the home on Oregon Trail once?
A. I can’t say because I haven’t had that
home in 14 years, 13 years. So that’s been a long

more than once? You just don’t remember?

A. No. I don’t.
Q. Okay. On the times that you can recall
her being there, what was the reason for her being
there?

I had this in a draft, so I am posting the text, I accidentally deleted the other half.  It is really frustrating translating and retyping, Phaedra can not answer yes or no questions.

 

.. continued..  from I actually meet this girl, and so yeah. But beyond
that, ifs not to discuss the litigation. Sometimes
it’s been to refresh my memory on when did I meet her.
And he’s like, oh, yeah, we met her, because he was
there then I met her. 
Q. Okay. Do you know Jessica Lacy Voker?
A. Yes.

have seen Ron a few times. But, I mean, I’m sure he’s 1
aware of the lawsuit, obviously; but ifs not like we I
discuss it.
Q. Did you talk with him on the phone ?
recently about your claim with Ms. Stanton, about the :
litigation with Ms. Stanton?
A. I talked to Ron – I don’t think it’s – I
know it hasn’t been super recently.
Q. Let’s say within the last year.
A. Yeah. I know I spoke to him in the last
year. yeah.
Q. About the litigation with Ms. Stanton?
A. I don’t think — we’ve never had a
conversation specifically about the litigation. I’m i
sure he’s obviously mentioned it because he knows I
about it, but it’s not as though we just specifically !
talked about the litigation.
Q. You didn’t contact him by phone sometime
within the last three or four months to discuss the
case against Ms. Stanton?
A. I might have contacted him because we both I
have children the same age and he’s obviously very i
familiar with my relationship with Angela and how we I
r:: — mef and sometimes he has remembered things better than
A. We’ve worked together. We’re friends.
Q. Okay.
A. I’ve known him·for years. You know, I’ve
obviousfy done business wfth him on numerous
occasions.
Q. Have y’all ever had a dating relationship?

A. Possibly.
Q. Do you dispute that you had Ms. Stanton in
your home?
A. She’s been by one of my homes, uh-huh.
Q. Okay. Which one was that?
A. The one on Oregon Trail.
Q. Okay. fs it your testimony that she only
came to the home on Oregon Trail once?
A. I can’t say because I haven’t had that
home in 14 years, 13 years. So that’s been a long
time ago.
Q. So it’s possible she may have been there
more than once? You just don’t remember?
A. Yeah, it’s possible.
Q. You don’t dispute that she was there more
than once?
A. I can’t say. You know, that’s been a long
time ago.
Q. But you don’t dispute it? That’s what I’m
asking you. You don’t have some knowledge to say, no,
I know she wasn’t there more than once?
A. No. I don’t.
Q. Okay. On the times that you can recall
her being there, what was the reason for her being
there?

A. Again, that was 13 years ago. So I don’t
recall, you know. I don’t know if it was a social
visit. I don’t know if it was him, with him. I mean,
that’s 13 years ago.
Q. Okay. I imagine you have given some
thought to this, given you filed a lawsuit and that
sort of thing. You have probably given some thought
with your relationship with Ms. Stanton and the times
you may have seen her.
