Porsha Williams has broken up with her husband of 15 months.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta, 42, filed for divorce from Simon Guobadia, 59, on Thursday after their fairytale wedding in November 2022, according to court documents obtained by People.

The news comes amid accusations of fraud and possible deportation of Simon, a Nigerian businessman who has lived in the United States for more than 40 years.

A source informed the outlet that the split decision, currently classified as an “ongoing matter,” is not related to the recent allegations involving Simon’s past.

The divorce filing also comes a few days after Porsha announced her return to RHOA, where she met Simon, after a three-year hiatus.

Simon made his debut on RHOA at the end of season 13, introduced as Falynn Pina’s husband.

However, the couple went their separate ways after filming wrapped.

On May 10, 2021, Porsha revealed that she was engaged to Simon after a month of dating even though he was her RHOA co-star’s ex.

“Yes, we are madly in love,” she captioned a selfie with Guobadia.

‘I know it’s fast, but we live life every day to the fullest. I choose happiness every morning and every night.’

Simon later confirmed the engagement on his own social media, gushing, “I asked him to marry me because we ticked ALL of each other’s boxes, and then some.”

Earlier this month, Porsha revealed that she’s returning to RHOA with a fun video.

‘Who said that? Is Porsha Williams returning to Real Housewives of Atlanta? That’s false… but Porsha Guobadia is in the building. See you!’ she said in the clip.

“Our audience has supported and admired Porsha because she has shared her life so authentically, hilariously and vulnerablely over the years and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome her back to the NBCU family,” they added.

On September 30, 2021, Porsha declared her departure from RHOA after a decade on the show.
