The estranged husband of The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Phaedra Parks, Apollo Nida, has had sh*tty year.
Mostly, his drama is his own fault. The volatile reality star proved himself to be a troublemaker on the show. Not only did he start an infamous physical altercation with a group of “friends” at a pajama party, he later landed himself in jail.
In September 2014, Apollo reported to prison in Kentucky, where he will serve an eight year sentence for fraud and identity theft.
According to the U.S. attorney, Apollo ran a fake debt collection agency to gain access to databases full of individual’s information. After acquiring the information, he would steal IDs and find unclaimed funds, refunds from HUD, treasury checks, and U.S. income tax returns.
But now, only a little over a year into his sentence, Apollo revealed that it “won’t be long” until he is released.
In a jailhouse letter, Apollo wrote to Radar Online, “I’ll hold your contact info and reach out to you upon my release—which won’t be long.”
Apollo might be better off in jail. Though Phaedra used to support him, he is on his own now. In fact, Phaedra won’t even visit Apollo in jail.
And without her financial support, he is f—ked. Apollo owes $1.9 million in restitution for his crimes against JP Morgan Chase and the IRS.
