Apollo Nida got some VERY bad news this holiday season; some of his most prized possessions will not be waiting for him when he gets home from prison! It’s no secret the Bravo star is behind bars; serving his 8-year sentence for bank fraud and identity theft. Well, Radaronline is reporting that that the federal government was recently authorized to seize some of belongings to pay off his seven-figure restitution!
Court documents reveal that a noticed was filed last month reading, “The personal property of Apollo E. Nida … is being taken by the United States in order to help pay off his staggering $1,949,925.67 restitution debt.” Wow he owes A LOT of money! Some are wondering why Phaedra isn’t helping to pay this, but I agree with her decision not to. Her money needs to go to help raise her children since the family will only have one income while he is behind bars. I know marriage is “for better, or for worse,” but he was lying behind her back and ultimately tore apart their family.
As we saw recently on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Apollo had motorcycles and other “man toys” in the garage at Todd and Kandi Tucker’s house. If he had these expensive belongings why should Phaedra have to pay, he should have sold them before he left to pay off the money he owes! It seems the government had the same idea, because once this episode aired they knew exactly where to go to find what they needed.
On November 17th the U.S. Marshall service was led to Kandi and Todd’s house to seize a “a silver 2014 Ducati 899 Panicale Motorcycle, a “white with red top Yamaha Raptor 700R 4-Wheeler ATV, and any property in which [Nida] has a substantial nonexempt interest.”
Any interest in buying Apollo’s old motorcycle or ATV? (Didn’t think so) The U.S. Marshals Service has until November 17, 2016, to sell his belongings “on an internet auction site, through a broker, or in a commercially reasonable manner.”
This “reality” show got all too real, and ultimately helped the government! Maybe one of the agents is a huge RHOA fan? Either way Apollo could NOT have been happy when he heard about this! Kandi is VERY pregnant, she doesn’t need this stress right now! Maybe this will help Kandi and Phaedra’s friendship since this was a point of contention for them this season!
Do you think this will help Phaedra and Kandi’s friendship? It seems obvious this would be the end result; Are you surprised RHOA would even show Apollo’s possessions at the Tucker’s? It seems obvious this would be the end result? How do you think Apollo reacted, do you think he knows they even showed that on the show? Any other thoughts on the federal government seizing Apollo’s “toys”?
