Around the same time, Thomas was traveling often from Atlanta to Charlotte to open up a new Bar One location—and Bailey, 47, complained that the distance was hurting their relationship.
But in recent episodes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the two have seemed to work past their issues, even traveling to Jamaica for a couple's trip.
Unfortunately while the pair may seem back in sync in front of the camera, behind the scenes, distance is again destroying their marriage.
Over the weekend Thomas revealed on Instagram that he is in the process of opening a new club in Charlotte.
"The HOTTEST CLUB in Charlotte is 6 weeks away, The grand opening is going to be EPIC," he wrote. "Another PETER THOMAS ENTERTAINMENT GROUP. @sportsoneclt @baroneclt"
Thomas then invited his fans to watch the Super Bowl at his Bar One location in Charlotte, later sharing a shot of him cozying up to rapper Trina.
"Hanging out with my Miami people, superduper Trina, baddest woman on the planet in the rap game. @sportsoneclt @trinarockstarr" he captioned the shot.
Meanwhile, Bailey was on the other side of the country celebrating the Super Bowl with a bunch of her girlfriends in Los Angeles.
As Radar exclusively reported, the couple hit another rough patch last week when Thomas was charged with simple assault following an altercation at his bar in North Carolina.
On the show, Bailey has been quite frank about her feelings for her husband.
"You know and I know that there's a disconnect between us," she admitted. "So we need to figure out what our plan is."
At the time, Thomas agreed that business was getting in the way of their romance.
"It's like we got married and now it's work, work, work, work, work," he said. "Our ambition supersedes our relationship."
