Apollo lashes out after taking heat online...
Back story...Apollo Nida, Phaedra Parks’ Husband, Charged With Fraud, Identity Theft...
Bravo’s hit reality show the ”Real Housewives Of Atlanta” is hot this season and the arrest of Phaedra Park‘s husband Apollo Nida has added even more excitement into the mix.
Nida was allegedly arrested and charged with bank fraud and identity theft for “creating fake companies which enabled him to access databases to find individuals to rip off,” states a report by the Secret Service’s Counterfeit and U.S. Treasury Check Squad, according to Access Atlanta.
The document that was obtained by the news site goes on to state: “He opened fake bank accounts under those real names and funneled stolen U.S. Treasury checks and auto loan proceeds into those accounts.”
Nida was named by an alleged co-conspirator, Gayla St. Julien, who was arrested last September with $3 million in multiple bank accounts tied to her.
St. Julien, who has described herself as Nida’s “right hand b*tch,” allegedly helped to facilitate the operation. The woman also revealed to a case investigator that she was making mere beans compared to what Nida was pulling in from the operation.
Access Atlanta reports that Nida would allegedly steal identities, and then have St. Julien pose as the theft victims. The woman would then go and open bank accounts using the stolen identities. The report then went on to state:
“She would then deposit fraudulent auto loan checks, stolen U.S. Treasury checks, stolen retirement checks issued to Delta Airlines employees, and checks in the names of real people, who were owed unclaimed property from various state and federal government agencies.”
Nida also reportedly opened a fake auto dealership and applied for loans using the stolen identities.
Ironically, Nida who has an extensive rap sheet, was imprisoned over a five-year period from 2004 to 2009 for auto title fraud.
Nida is out on a $25,000 bond and will be arraigned on February 12. (NewsOne.com)
More Rumors Surrounding Phaedra Parks And Apollo Nida! Plus, Kenya Moore Reacts To Apollo’s Arrest!
With the shocking arrest of Apollo Nida for embezzlement, bank fraud, conspiracy, and identity theft, we're gasping for breath! Many are wondering if Phaedra Parks is involved, how much she knew, will the couple stay married, or will Phaedra be charged next? And of course there are as many rumors surrounding Phaedra and Apollo's situation as there are charges.
We expect more and more information, rumors, and gossip to emerge daily surrounding the Real Housewives of Atlanta stars. I'm personally very hopeful (and inclined to believe) Phaedra's hands are clean. I simply cannot imagine her jeopardizing Prince Ayden and Mr. President's future by participating in anything this illegal. I also consider her way too smart to get messed up in something so risky. However, that's just my opinion.
Below is a rundown of the the rumors surrounding Apollo's behavior and the couple's marital status! Please remember, Reality Tea is not confirming or denying the rumors – we are simply reporting on what we've heard.

Rumor One: Apollo and Phaedra have been separated for months.
Way back in September, Apollo's car was searched and his laptop seized by the feds. A few weeks after learning of his criminal activity, Phaedra reportedly kicked Apollo out of the house and limited their interaction to media appearances and co-parenting for the sake of their joint endeavors such as Phine Body.
Interesting, considering the two attended Kandi Burruss' New Years Eve party together and have been spotted numerous times at various events, such as the recent inauguration of the Atlanta mayor and a trip to NYC to see Kandi in Newsicals. Phaedra also posted a photo celebrating her birthday with Apollo. But as many have pointed out there are no photos of the couple at home in the last few months!
Phaedra's most recent blog is also tellingly me-me-me, however… (except that whole "working being a better wife" part)
"Funtimes tonight w/my baby @apollonida03 Mayor@kasimreed & Sarah #InauguralBall"
Rumor Two: Apollo has a well-established mistress and Phaedra found out!
I think we've all questioned Apollo's fidelity (see: Kenya, sext-gate), but Sandra Rose is theorizing that Phaedra learned of Apollo's long-term mistress and may have ratted him out to the feds ala Blue Jasmine!
"But wait until you see the young breezy that Apollo was taking afternoon naps with while Phaedra was at home caring for his chirren. I wouldn’t be surprised if Phaedra herself tipped the feds off to get him thrown back in prison to get back at this young girl. And, that’s not all: Bravo’s producers want her to come on the show to tell her side of the story — his jump off, that is."
WHOA! Kandi said Phaedra is "ride or die" for her man, but could we see her getting fed up with this scandalous behavior and tipping off the feds?
TamraTattles states that after Apollo was charged this weekend Phaedra officially "changed the locks" and he was spotted "hitting a Waffle House at 2:15 am after 'hitting it hard' at 'the gym.'”
The site also claims Apollo indicated during an episode of RHOA that he and Phaedra are separated.
"I watched the episode this season where Phaedra and Apollo are having that god-awful dinner at Red Lobster or something. He hands her a piece of mail and said 'this came to the old house…' Old house? If it’s old, forward your mail, right? It was a letter to appear for Kenya and Conya’s bitter landlord-tenant dispute."
Another interesting discovery TamaraTattles made was that the home Phaedra and Apollo purchased and renovated (seen on the show) is soley in Phaedra's name! The home is in a ritzy neighborhood known for its great schools – and happens to be the same neighborhood where Chateau Sheree sits idly and incomplete!
I am very curious to see how this shakes out. RHOA was filming until October and Apollo was served with a warrant in September.
Phaedra and Apollo's marriage has seemed strained all season with Phaedra acting increasingly mistrusting of his behavior and whereabouts. Could she have sensed something was going on? I also wonder when her castmates learned of Apollo being investigated. Surely Kandi has known before the other ladies?
One person who is positive that Phaedra is shady is Kenya Moore! She's been gloating up a storm ever since the news broke.
"I said it all on @ArsenioHall. #youcantbethatdumb #inonit #angelastanton #neverlieonmeagain #evil #fake #whoscrazynow"
"Losers never win. I have always seen through ppl and I was the first to tell you last season about these ppl and who they really are. #dirty"
