Phaedra Parks — Bombing Suspect Is Former Client
Phaedra Parks has history with the man who allegedly threatened to blow up her law office, because she was once his manager and lawyer … TMZ has learned.
Sources close to Terrence Cook — aka Drama — tell us Phaedra managed his music career back in 2000 when he was an up-and-coming rapper in Atlanta.
She was also his lawyer in a 2003 robbery case before she was removed as counsel. Cook served 12 years in prison for that case.
We’re told after Cook was released from prison in 2015 … he told friends he was going to Miami to meet up with Phaedra and shoot an episode of ‘Real Housewives.’ While in Miami, we’re told he got seriously injured in a skydiving accident, and has been on the mend since.
Sources close to Cook say he blamed Phaedra for his downfall in life … including his long prison term, defunct rap career, and skydiving injury. For the record, Bravo says Cook was never invited to shoot a ‘Housewives’ episode.
As we previously reported — Cook was arrested Thursday morning when he showed up to what he thought was Phaedra’s law office claiming he had a bomb strapped to his leg. Cops said he had an envelope and book, but determined there was no bomb.
