Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks is speaking out in defense of her former client Terrence Cook. As previously reported, last week he was arrested for allegedly threatening to bomb her law office.
Cook was booked into Fulton County Jail and charged with making terroristic threats and transmitting a false public alarm amid accusations that he showed up to her office last Thursday claiming he had a bomb strapped to his leg.
Cops determined there was no bomb.
It’s reported that Parks, who was a high profile attorney, acted as his manager and lawyer in 2000, when Cook – aka ‘Drama’ – was an up and coming rapper. She was also his lawyer in a 2003 robbery case for which he served 12 years in jail.
The rapper had been part of a lawsuit Parks filed against Angela Stanton, a former friend of the reality star who wrote a tell-all book after the pair’s relationship soured entitled Lies From A Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil.
Phaedra is now speaking out, stating that that situation was blown out of proportion. She says Cook, who she considers a friend, wanted to give her his new CD, but took the elevator to the wrong floor and his refusal to leave despite the instruction of a receptionist led to a security guard being called.
Cook’s mother says that he said: ‘I have a bomb CD. It’s about to blow up,’ and when pressed on whether he had more explosives, he said: ‘I got that bomb a** CD in the car,’ when he meant he had a package of discs in his vehicle.
Phaedra insists police unfairly picked on him because of his appearance. He was wearing a white t-shirt and baggy pants and had gold teeth.
