Attorney Phaedra Parks of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta says that “every saint has a past and every sinner has a future,” but apparently her husband, Apollo Nida, has more of a past than the two are willing to admit. Though Parks has likened Nida’s felony conviction to Martha Stewart’s “white collar crime,” court documents reveal a history of arrests for felony possession of a firearm, concealed weapons, organized crime, and more!
Phaedra Parks of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta insists that her husband and baby-daddy, Apollo Nida, was convicted of a “non-violent white collar crime,” but court records reveal that the so-called “Southern belle’s” beau has a pretty long criminal history. Just ask Corey Lamont Thomas, William Spearman, and Brandon Phillips–all aliases that Nida gave to the police during his various arrests!
Over the years, Apollo Nida has been charged with possession of a firearm, possession of concealed weapons, motor vehicle theft, theft by receiving stolen property, and forgery.
Nida was also convicted of racketeering under the RICO act, which deals with white AND blue collar crimes associated with criminal organizations, having allegedly forged VIN decals and false documents of ownership in a car-theft ring.
Apollo was sentenced to 18 years in prison for the crime, beginning his sentence in July of 2004. He received parole in May 2009, just months before marrying Phaedra Parks in November. And now we all know that Phaedra and Apollo also conceived their child, Ayden, that same month–despite Phaedra’s claims that she got pregnant after the two were wed.
Sounds like a little more than a “Martha Stewart” crime!
