Fugitive Apollo Nida Turns Himself In After Visiting Strip Club

Apollo Nida, the husband of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, failed to turn himself into a Lexington, Kentucky prison on time.  Nida was set to begin serving his 8-year sentence on Wednesday at noon.  TMZ is reporting that instead of turning himself in, Nida went by his estranged wife’s house and crashed a segment she was taping for RHOA to argue with her about her refusal to put money into his prison account while he serves his sentence.

TMZ also reports that a source revealed to them that Nida took items from the couple’s master bedroom.  Sources are also reporting that Nida was spotted at Atlanta strip club Follies, where he spent hours the day he was supposed to report to prison.  It appears as though after Nida spoke his peace to his estranged wife and spent some time watching strippers, he turned himself in around 3:30 am.

In a twitter post, Nida stated, “I would like to say thanks 4 everyone’s support & thanks 4 holding me in prayer I’ve arrived 2 my destination and I’m going asunder.”  He also posted a video to Instagram of him outside of the prison.  CNN is reporting that Nida is now inmate 65725-019.

The events leading up to Nida’s incarceration include him being arrested in January and then pleading guilty in May to charges related to a fraud scheme in which prosecutors say that Nida stole millions of dollars from more than 50 people over the course of four years.  The money came from fraudulent auto loan checks, stolen U.S. Treasury checks, retirement checks, and unclaimed property checks.   Nida was sentenced to 8 years in prison as well as five years of parole.  This is not Nida’s first prison stint.  He served five years previously for auto title fraud.

It is unclear whether or not the couples marriage will survive Nida’s incarceration.  In a statement made to CNN through her publicist, Parks states that she is, “now putting all of her energy into ensuring the well-being of her two children and making decisions that are in their best interests.  This situation has put a tremendous strain on Phaedra and her family, and she is working hard to bring back a sense of normalcy to everyone’s lives.”

  1. Smh…He really makes a positive example by going to a strip club and not reporting to prison on time. Let's hope he will change his ways, but I somehow doubt it. He's used to getting big money illegally, and that's hard to stop doing. My prayers are going up for his children, who truly need them.

  2. Phaedra knew he was a snake before she took him in! The nerve of this “thug” to get mad because she had not put any money into his prison account, white collar crime or blue collar crime, a thug is a thug!

  3. The black man in the white man's complicated world… The black man has proven he's just not cut out to live in the white man's system. Blacks need a homeland in America.

  4. He needed to get a last look and feel of femininity before he has to be with all men. Looking at him in all his light skinned and curly hair glory. Hello Bubba.
