Pay Up: The Feds Move To Garnish Apollo Nida’s Bravo Paycheck To Cover His $1.9 Million Restitution

Posted on Feb 12 2015 - 1:26pm by Nancy

Apollo Nida

Former, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, Apollo Nida, has a lot on his plate lately. He’s currently serving an 8-year prison sentence for fraud, been abandon by his wife and kids and now he’s been hit with a another devastating blow.

According to court documents, Apollo’s Bravo paycheck ($50,000) will be garnished by the feds to help satisfy his ginormous restitution penalty of $1.9 million. A federal judge has issued a court order, demanding RHOA production company, True Entertainment garnish Apollo’s wages earned for the current season.

The court order states,

“You are herby required to withhold and retain pending further order, any property, funds, accounts, royalties, wages, monies, stock or earnings of the judgment debtor, including but not limited to any new property of which you obtain custody, control, or possession while this Writ is in effect.
“You are further required by law to answer in writing, under oath, within ten days, after receipt of the Writ, providing the following information: Whether you have any property owned by or due to Apollo Nida, including funds, accounts, monies, stock, earning in your custody, control or possession, a description of the property and the value of the property…the amount you are holding, owe, or anticipate owing to Apollo Nida.”

The 35-year-old reality star has been ordered to pay restitution to the victims of his various crimes, including the State of California, JP Morgan Chase Bank, Delta Airlines Inc., and the U.S. Treasury, in the amount of $1,948,214.85. Restitution is typically ordered for direct, out-of-pocket expenses only, which here might include deductible amounts required for insurance coverage and reimbursement due to theft or fraudulent use of monetary funds.  

Below is a complete summary of Apollo Nida’s restitution owed:

As if Apollo’s life couldn’t get any worse with all his legal drama, his personal life is in equal peril. His estranged wife, Phaedra Parks, has been working overtime to seemingly portray Apollo as a psychotic man, out to harm his family. Rumors speculate this is the “excuse” Phaedra is using to NOT take their two sons to see their dad in prison. Phaedra stated on a recent episode of the RHOA:

“Because I haven’t made a decision on whether or the children will visit with Apollo, it’s making him act very erratic and angry, but at the end of the day, I don’t care how much Apollo kicks and screams or goes to the club — I will do what’s best for these children,” Phaedra said. “It’s always been my desire to raise strong black men and I don’t ever want them to think that going to jail is acceptable.”

In the video below, Phaedra carefully comments in the clip that she is unjustly being treated as a scape-goat, because “There is no one else left, besides himself, for him to blame.” There is simply no on-camera proof of this attitude, in fact, there has been just the opposite. Apollo has remarked several times that he alone is responsible for his predicament. His comments have reflected that over and over.

    Miss pahedra used him and he ate it.. He’s no angel but he loss big time.

  • Soncie22

    I hope Apollo’s attorney come after Phaedra for a portion of Apollo’s restitution payments.. I believe she benefited from some of it, and as such should also be required to pay some of it back!

    • RonnieIsBack

      She sure did.
      Lovvvvie your avi!
      Marilyn Moose…

  • I feel so sorry for Apollo. Phaedra was the mastermind and he took the wrap so she could stay with the kids. The poor fella only has a 3rd grade education and was raised in foster care.

    • twifan2

      & he wound up married to Fakedra. 🙁
      That’s a prison sentence in it’s self!

      • Preach! I feel shady Phae Phae targeted Apollo because he’s dumb as a box of rocks and easy prey. The fake southern belle hustler was no match for weak Apollo.

        • twifan2

          BUT will that ‘southern belle’ hustler be enough for when Ms. Stanton goes after her?!
          I hope Ms. Stanton nails her! 🙂

  • twifan2

    DANG! I so wish that would also happen to the Juicys! >(

  • Yolie

    I feel bad for anyone believes Phaedra is innocent. Apollo contributed 50 percent of the criminal money to the extra large house so my question is where did she think all that money came from? Phaedra is very calculating. The only reason she is airing and portraying Apollo this way is to divert peoples attention from questioning her innocence. She’s not fooling me. An educated, overachiever lived and spent thousands of dollars without having an ideal where it was flowing from? It’s crazy that people actually buy her BS story??? Now she is a victim of a bad Husband ?? Nope!

    • twifan2

      Fakaedra is another one with Trelusionitis. :/

      • Yolie

        Phaedra knew his history. You can’t tell me she didn’t know what he was doing. Shame on her for letting him take the fall, then keeping his kids away from him.

        • cait

          He was only 17 yrs old, and she about 25 yrs, when she recruited, sorry, wooed him ! That tells its own story about CROOKRA !

          • RonnieIsBack

            Yup his azz shoulda just bought that damn pizza…

          • cait

            Ended up with pizza-face instead !

    • cait

      Wish Apollo would man-up and send her sorry-ass to prison ! I think she set him up both times, then threw him under the bus ! He’s violent and dangerous ! Yeah Right ! She was a telling people he was a repo man !
      What happened to that court case with Angela ?

      • Yolie

        I agree. It’s ridiculous how she makes him sound like he’s abusive and unstable. Yeah, now that you are trying to distance yourself he’s all kinds of bad. But before Phaedra couldn’t stop singing his praises. Fake!

        • twifan2

          Imo, I think Bravo is editing a lot of his ‘rage scenes’.
          He might be venting because Fakeadra won’t let him see his own sons. He loves those boys & Fakeadra is using them against Apollo. 🙁

          • cait

            They never edited any of the Tree’s meltdowns !

          • twifan2

            I bet you they did.
            Can you imagine having to listen to that voice for that long!?
            I’d kill myself, if I had to! 😀

          • cait

            Got to agree after watching a few eps from ser 4 ! The Gia Bra-gate, Solstice party, the Gia Brat-gate during the field-games at Manzo’s etc. She is a Screechilumpo Tree !

          • Chloe

            I think he’s venting because he knows his wife is cheating on him and he’s going to prison for crimes she may be equally responsible for.

          • twifan2

            He needs to rat her out then!
            BUT maybe he’s going to let Angela Stanton do that? :/

          • Dave

            I think he’s trying to be a man and put the welfare of his kids first.

          • twifan2

            Or he’s completed taken in by Fakeadra’s ‘wonderful mother, person’ sham. Or he might still be in love with her that he doesn’t realize he’s in a good position to bring her down?

          • cait

            Both of the above !

          • Dave

            He’s dumb enough to still be in love with her.

          • twifan2

            That is what makes me feel sad for him. 🙁

          • Dave

            That’s exactly why.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Apollo contributed 50% – LOL!!!!!

      Phaedra purchased the house in her name and only
      in her name. Her finances were in order and I believe the FEDS have
      looked over her finances thoroughly and haven’t found anything criminal
      or out of order.
      You think the FEDS are crazy for “buying her story?”
      HA!!! Not at all!!
      Just because you wish it was so – doesn’t mean it is.

    • CoolBreeze15

      They buy her stupid story b/c they are extremely naive and they have such hate for the beauties of the show because they make too much sense. They will be in for a REAL shock when karma FINALLY takes it toll on Phaedra because it will!

  • Chloe

    Phaedra is wrong for keeping them boys from their daddy. She’s a lawyer so she knew what she was getting into when she married a man with a criminal past. She claims to be holy and righteous on every episode but I don’t see anything Christian about her. She’s married to Apollo but hooking up with another guy, don’t you think Apollo, might be a little upset about that? Apollo is not perfect, if you do the crime, you do the time. However, Phaedra has forgotten what “for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health” means.

  • She Stinks!

    I wonder what they will do with the Fraud Broad? She better get garnished too!

    • cait

      Said it before, with lips as big as her ass, she definitely talks out of one of them !

    • twifan2

      The both of the Juicys need to have their paychecks garnished as of yesterday!

    • Dave

      I don’t see how Phaedra has escaped her finances getting garnished when they’re a married couple.

      • cait

        Yes, CROOKRA is as guilty as sin !
        Your laws are different. If you remarry, your partner then becomes co-responsible for your child maintenance payments ! This is so unfair !
        If you commit a crime, I, as the spouse, would not be held liable for your fines or jail time !

      • BuckJohnson

        Don’t worry, it will sooner or later he’s going to talk about her activities with him. He will get tired of being the bad guy.

        • cait

          He might do it later, within the statute of limitations, so that he’s closer to taking custody of the boys !

        • Dave

          I imagine he’ll start talking very soon. There’s only so much a person can take.

          • cait

            If they get silly SadASS as Judge, then one out, one in !

  • italiano bambino

    Fakedra is very calculating she got a convict out of prison to do her shading deals. she’s smart… SOUTHERN BELLE my ass

      • Bad Barbie

        and how he had no real job.

  • italiano bambino

    Apollo book should be tittle

      Title: Long in the booty

    • Babson_Chick

      Because of this outfit and her trashy behavior, she is off the real Southern Belle Registry. Maybe there’s a different one for Hotlanta.

    • Bad Barbie

      Angela pretty much already told this story. LMAOOOOOOOOOOo

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    just wondering…..if Teresa returns to RHONJ if they continue the show will her earnings be garnished too…….if anything that produces income be garnished……

    • italiano bambino

      There going to take money is most definitely

  • cait

    TwiFi, How is Chats getting on in Amsterdam ? He’ll have a great time there because “A mouse lived in a windmill in old Amsterdam” so plenty of playthings ! Tell him not to forget my Wacky-Baccy !

  • RonnieIsBack

    Croooooooooook!
    Pay up prison pigeon…

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Who is the sperm donor now? Be Careful what you say Phakedra!

  • cait

    Before the boys were born, CROOKRA was gonna be tough mom, but, later when Ayden was playing up and Apollo was dealing with the situation, she dissed him, in front of the child, and gave in to the tot’s demands ! Remind you of a Tree you know ?

    • RealitytvJunkie

      The similarities are striking.

      • cait

        In ser 4, Tree and Juicy in the car, G(IMME)A and Demonia totally disrespectful to dad, with the Tree giggling away, then Juicy put his foot down and, forcefully, told them to stop ! The Tree was not happy !

  • Babson_Chick

    I’m thinking that Apollo is wishing that he hadn’t made it rain so much in those strip clubs and worked harder on his marriage – he’s toast now!!!! Phakera got her boys and seemed bored with her hub and now playing dumb.

    • cait

      She didn’t want a hubby, only in it for some sperm shots, and this to make her mom happy ! ‘cos “In our family we don’t have babies unless we’re married” GOTTIT !

      • Babson_Chick

        Truth!!!

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Phaedra knew exactly what was going on. Now she wants play the “I’m I’m lost role.” She didn’t support him during his trial or court sentencing and she wants him to be ok with that. What Apollo did was wrong but she gained from it as well. She knew Apollo was in the streets when she met him. She vowed to be there for this man then quickly turns her back on him. She knew he had NO income when she met him but still chose him.

      • cait

        He was a boy when she “bought” him !

        • Babson_Chick

          truth!!

      • Babson_Chick

        Don’t think she’s fooling anyone. Your’e right she knew what she was doing.

  • Babson_Chick

    Looking at the victim list it seems they really got around. He’d better up his stud fees!!

    • cait

      Does he seem like the genius that could scam all those top institutions ? Yeah, Right ! Would have been better if he had got some “Legal Advice” ! WHOOPS ! He did ! Now he’s in clink ! Shudda got Jack McCoy !

      • Bad Barbie

        and you mean to tell me that Phaedra didn’t enjoy the money?

      • Babson_Chick

        Agree – cause I don’t see any genius types in this motley crew

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      LOL!!

  • Gabby

    Time to pay up, Apollo!

  • Bonita Gee

    Wow the real life sh*t that’s going on outside of the show is better than the ACTUAL show!! RHOA is just about dead now anyway, because people are so sick of Nene and her puppets; Phaedra, Porsha, and Kandi. They laugh at everything Nene laughs at they hate on whoever Nene hates on, throws shade at anyone Nene throws shade at……. Damn, just kill this show already it’s DEAD! Tired of the jealousy, cattiness and wig pulling. It’s all so juvenile for these grown ass women.

    • CoolBreeze15

      You’d be surprised how many people still love the ratchets, I see it on Twitter/Facebook/Instagram all the time.

  • Kat

    Great Breakdown Nancy! Phaedra’s working overtime to make him look like a psycho yet its been months since she said she would divorce him but still hasnt filed. One would have to be as delusional as Nene to think that Apollo stole from all of these businesses without Phaedra pulling the strings. Keep in mind she’s known him since he was 17 and he was a repeat offender before he went to jail on his previous conviction…so why go humping on an air mattress, get impregnated by, and then marry a repeat offender?….most likely because you are doing the crimes with him. He’s definitely taking the fall for both of them and she just can’t up and abandon him like she did angela stanton….because he’s likely to validate all of the claims that AS made in her book. Why do you think she hasnt filed for divorce yet? Also what is the status of the lawsuit with Stanton anyway?…it’s been dead silent for the past few months.

  • CoolBreeze15

    Ha! NO sympathy from me! Can’t believe how some folks feel sorry for this dude. I wonder if he was ugly and not known would they still feel the same? Maybe Phaedra was the mastermind but at the end of the day, he CHOSE to marry Phaedra. He should have picked up on those signs of her being psychotic earlier on but then again, according to Angela Stanton HE worked for her! Only innocent people are those boys. This situation will NOT turn out good, trust. Phaedra may think she’s “untouchable” now, but what’s done in the dark ALWAYS comes to the light and that rule of nature is sure not going to stop because of no country frog named Phaedra Parks! LOL

  • CoolBreeze15

    Can’t wait to see this Sunday’s episode where we will finally found out just how much of a SLUT this woman really is. Angela had a LOT of details in her book. ☺

  • Bad Barbie

    I don’t think we have seen the real Phaedra at all.

    Apollo, you better come out looking like beefy the model and become a stripper to pay up! PAY UP BISH!!!!!!!!!! UGH!

  • cait

    I still have thoughts about Fakera + Apollo + Gregg + Petey-Boy and others, as per scams ! Hmmm !

  • Carmen Mitchell

    I’ll bet this stupid con was bragging in the “yard” to all his inmate buddies how much money he can still make while “inside”. Sorry LOSER, time to pay up.
