Atlanta welcomed a new addition to the cast of season 13 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Falynn Guobadia was introduced as a friend of Porsha Williams. She already had the Internet’s attention when she began talking about her older husband. People want to know not only about the socialite, but also about who she is married to. Simon Guobadia touts himself as the loyal husband of Falynn, but her new fans are speculating there is trouble brewing in paradise for this newlywed couple. Earlier, Falynn and Simon were raising a blended family together and were active in philanthropy and multiple businesses. Now it seems reality television has torn them apart. This Simon Guobadia wiki serves as a primer on the man married to RHOA’s latest addition, and the marital drama.

Simon Guobadia’s Career

Simon Iyore Guobadia was born on June 2, 1964 and is a native of Nigeria but settled in Georgia, USA. He has at least one sister, Mary Awo-Osagie.

Guobadia attended Loyola College Ibadan in Nigeria, and later studied accounting at the University of the District of Columbia. He graduated in 1993 with a BBA in accounting.

He was a tax manager at Deloitte in Atlanta from 2004 to 2006. While he has been a certified accountant for years, he’s also transitioned into the role of an entrepreneur.

Guobadia is a businessman, restaurateur, and entertainment producer. He is credited as an executive producer on Son of the South (2020), Kill (2019), Ken Ford Live from the Buckhead Theater (2013), and Jail Dogs (2013).

Guobadia is the owner and CEO of the SIMCOL Group, KLC Petroleum, and SIMCOL Petroleum. He also ran a restaurant, Simon’s.

Simon Guobadia’s Net Worth

There’s not enough information to estimate Simon Guobadia’s net worth. However, his financial history has had its ups and downs.

Guobadia’s eponymous restaurant in Midtown opened in 2017, but suffered during the pandemic and shuttered in May 2020. He also operated Time and Buckhead Bottle Bar (aka Bottle Bar), which closed in 2014. He helped open American Cut at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta in 2016, as well.

Documents show that Guobadia’s SIMCOL Restaurant Concepts LLC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2014. The filings revealed that Guobadia had put in well over $3.8 million into the operations of Bottle Bar from 2012 to 2014.

Guobadia told EarnTheNecklace.com that all the creditors were paid and the Chapter 11 bankruptcy was dismissed.

Though running his businesses hasn’t been easy, Simon’s Instagram gives the impression that nothing has dented his wealth. The philanthropist and investor boasts swanky cars, luxurious hobbies, a private jet, and a massive house, among other things.

The Guobadia family’s house is worth an estimated $4,688,000. His garage boasts a Ferrari and a Rolls-Royce among other vehicles.

Both have children from previous relationships. Collectively, Simon and Falynn are parents to eight children.

The eldest of the group is Quentin Guobadia (born on February 22, 1996). He graduated from Hofstra University with a BA in film studies in 2020.

It appears Quentin wasn’t the only Guobadia college graduate in 2020. Simon took to Facebook in June to congratulate daughter Nicole Guobadia, who graduated from the University of Washington with a BS in computer science.

Simon also has two younger sons, Benjamin and Christian. Falynn also has three sons. The youngest daughter of their blended family is Ximena, who was born in 2012.

Simon and Falynn Goubadia’s Alleged Breakup

In the past, some couples have broken up due to the pressures and strain of filming a reality show. And RHOA fans seem to think Falynn’s Bravo debut may have taken its toll on her marriage.

Simon had accompanied Falynn and the other Housewives on their trip to South Carolina. And fellow Housewife Latoya Ali offended Falynn by alleging she married her much-older husband for money. Falynn, who was always gushing about her husband, went off on Latoya.

While their marriage seemed strong in the episode, the couple’s social media activity seems to paint a different picture. Fans noticed that Falynn and Simon no longer follow each other on Instagram.

Simon has also deleted nearly all traces of Falynn from his official page. He apparently even went on a vacation without her.
Rumors of infidelity by both parties are also circulating the rumor mill. Others are hoping to see their alleged separation play out on RHOA.

Whatever the case, there’s no official confirmation from Falynn or Simon themselves. We will have to wait and see if Falynn talks about it on RHOA.
