Phaedra Parks Is Dating ‘The Haves And The Have Nots’ Actor Medina Islam, Who Is Claudia Jordan’s Ex!

It's been reported that Phaedra Parks in dating again and this time she is being linked to Medina Islam, an actor from OWN's The Haves And The Have Nots. Medina also happens to be the ex-boyfriend of Parks' former Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Claudia Jordan.

During a recent interview, Parks says she's 'happy' and 'excited' after getting together with a 'tall, dark and handsome' actor she met recently online. Parks gushed that she's finally met the guy of her dreams after a year long search of the 'man pond.'

"I didn't date for four years and so I put my foot into the man pond I guess about nine months to a year ago," she told the DailyMailTV. "I dated a guy and that didn't quite work out and so I found another guy that's more suitable for me and I'm quite excited and happy about him."

"He's very smart, very intelligent. He's kind, we are both socially active. He's really sober and smart. He's a great father. So I'm excited about it."

While Parks was coy about  sharing the identity of her new man, the publication reveals that she's in fact dating actor Medina Islam who is ten years her junior.

Parks has been seeing Islam for four months. Islam appears on Tyler Perry's The Haves and Have Nots on the Oprah Winfrey Network. The 35-year-old 6ft 2in actor and model also works in the tech industry as Urban Initiatives Director for Block Chain real estate firm Propy. He is originally from Newark, New Jersey.

Parks met Islam through Raya, the exclusive dating app used by the rich and famous.

"We've been in the same circles for some years, but he heard that I was on this dating site and he joined to meet me," she explained. "You choose someone and if they like you back, they send a rocket blast. And so the rocket blast came through and I answered the call."

The pair started chatting online at first before taking things to the next level, reports the DailyMailTV. Apparently, Islam has been traveling to Atlanta to see Parks.

If Islam looks familiar, is because he once dated Parks' former co-star Claudia Jordan. In 2016, Jordna told TheJasmineBrand at that time; “We’re definitely together and he’s the most amazing man I’ve ever met. Smart, talented and beautiful inside and out.”
