The legal dispute between Phaedra Parks and author Angela Stanton has been postponed.
Stanton has parted ways with her attorney and is having trouble finding a new one, according to court records. As a result the trial has been set back five months.
Parks is suing Stanton for publishing what she says are false accusations in an e-book called “Lies of a Real Housewife” and a Vibe.com article titled “Real House Wives of Atlanta Star Phaedra Parks Exposed.”
Allegations include Parks involved in criminal acts such as forgery and luxury car theft.
“The false and defamatory accusations were published online to generate interest in, and increase sales of, a subsequently published book that would repeat and expand on the online statements,” the lawsuit reads.
Parks is suing Stanton, Vibe Holdings and Augustus Publishing/Fame Productions for $5 million in compensatory damages and $25 million in punitive damages.
The articles and e-book are no longer available.
