This might be one of the most bizarre media revelations in quite some time. But according to TMZ, Apollo Nida is going to be serving as a spy for the government. The husband of Real Housewives star Phaedra Parks has, according to the outlet, struck a deal that will help him to avoid 30 years in prison after he was found to have stolen $2.3 million dollars in a massive mail fraud scheme that stunned his wife and her friends.
Well, she says that she was stunned, but there are some who’ve accused Phaedra of knowing what was going on all along.
The 35-year old, according to TMZ, is going to be an informant, similar to Rev. Al Sharpton, who was also forced to spy for the feds after being caught in the middle of a drug deal. But the site also acknowledges that Nida will have a hard time being stealth when he and his wife are on national television every week.
“Nida has agreed to allow the feds to record conversations he may have with other criminal suspects,” the site stated.
Phaedra’s husband has appeared in the US District court for the Northen District of Georgia this week. He may still face as many as 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million dollars. Judge Charles Pannell will decide Nida’s fate and will make his decision on July 8th at 2 pm.
We’re sure the show is going to use this one for ratings. They use everything else.
TMZ had an interesting take on Apollo’s decision to work for the feds to keep himself out of prison. The image of Apollo dressed as a wimpy, shifty-eyed rat eating a piece of cheese is far less flattering than the pretty boy eye candy image he has been able to cultivate on the show.
The authorities say that Nida stole the identities of 50 people in order to set up fake bank accounts. He also cashed checks from the Delta Airlines pension fund and fake tax returns. According to The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Nida is also accused of setting up a fake debt collection company in order to get access to the IDs of the people he robbed.
To top it all off, Nida also set up a fake auto dealership in order to get false car loans. So, he was knee deep in the criminal life.
Phaedra should probably look beyond a man’s smile and body when choosing a husband. This could bring her down too.
