Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida’s Marriage Still in Trouble (UPDATE)
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Today “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Apollo Nida turned himself into prison to begin serving his eight year sentence, but it’s been rumored for months that his marriage to Phaedra is on the rocks. In fact, Apollo was furious when Phaedra didn’t show up to his sentencing and he’s been hitting up strip joints and nightclubs plenty causing some to suspect the marriage is pretty much over.
Now TMZ is claiming the marriage is still in a bad place and both are furious with each other. TMZ writes:
Phaedra Parks is telling friends Apollo has essentially abandoned his family for the last 2 months … choosing drinking and strip clubs over his wife and 2 kids.
She says over the last week things got so bad and so tense she feared physical abuse … although nothing happened. The 2 haven’t even spoken in a week.
Apollo now begins his 8 year prison sentence for cashing stolen checks and laundering more than 2 million dollars.
We spoke to Apollo … who had no comment … but we’re told he’s pissed off at her for various reasons, including the fact that she didn’t show up for his court hearings and she’s been on a book tour during the last few months … rather than comforting him.
UPDATE: TMZ is now reporting that Apollo never made it to prison and he actually drove by his home with Phaedra and went off on her instead.
The site reports:
TMZ reported Wednesday AM … Nida was on his way to report for his 8-year prison sentence for money laundering and check fraud.
But apparently he got cold feet … because we’re told he pulled up to the home of his wife, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks and went nuts because Phaedra refused to put money in his prison account while he was locked up. She also refused to bring their kids to prison to visit him and that caused him to lose it.
We’re told Nida forced his way inside and started screaming at Phaedra, “What the f*** is the matter with you,” adding, “I don’t give a f*** about the police, call them, I dare you.”
An eyewitness tells TMZ … he was demanding property and went inside the master bedroom and starting putting stuff in a big bag.
The site also claims a warrant has just been issued for Apollo’s arrest and of course the Bravo cameras filmed the whole ordeal.
UPDATE #2: Apollo says he has now turned himself in and posted the following video to his Instagram account:
