Apollo Nida has given his first interview from behind bars, and he’s lashing out against his estranged wife, Phaedra Parks. Read on to see what Apollo said from prison.
Real Housewives of Atlanta husband Apollo Nida is currently serving an eight-year jail sentence for bank fraud and identity theft, and he wasn’t pleased when he caught wind of Phaedra Parks‘ plan to divorce him, while he’s in prison. Now, Apollo is reacting to his wife’s split and decision to keep their two boys away from him, demanding that he will not “walk away empty-handed.”
Apollo Nida First Prison Interview — Reacts To Phaedra Parks’ Divorce Plans
After finding out that Phaedra does plan to file for divorce, Apollo has finally spoken up. In a brand new interview, the RHOA jailbird tells In Touch that he will not lose any money from the split.
“I will not walk away empty-handed, considering all I’ve put into the marriage over the five years,” Apollo says from the Federal Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky, where he is serving his time. “That is completely fair, I think. It wouldn’t be right for her to just take everything and leave me with nothing to come home to.”
Apollo Nida Demands To See His Kids: ‘This Isn’t Right’
Money aside, Apollo wants to see his two sons, Ayden, 4, and Dylan, 19 months. As HollywoodLife.com has previously reported, he is desperate to see his boys.
“I can’t see why she would continue to hurt me by not allowing me to see my boys,” he says. “This isn’t right. If I don’t see my children for eight years, that would be some bulls**t, and I would fight for that right!”
He adds, “Who in their right mind would allow children to be away from their father for eight years, regardless of where the father is at in the world?”
In response to Apollo’s jail interview, a rep for Phaedra tells HollywoodLife.com, “Phaedra believes it is in the best interest of the kids to not publicly discuss the divorce.”
HollywoodLifers, do you agree with Apollo — should Phaedra let him see his kids or is she doing the right thing by protecting herself and her family? Let us know what you think.
