Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Apollo Nida, just lost his home over failure to pay property taxes on it. RadarOnline reports that they were able to obtain documents showing that Nida’s 4,687-square foot, 3-bedroom home sold for just $2,800 on May 6 after being auctioned off at the local courthouse. He apparently only paid $9,000 for the home in 2010.
Documents reportedly read that the sheriff’s department held the sale for paying “taxes owed, the interest and penalties on said taxes, and the expenses of the sale, all of which were mature and payable because of failure to pay same interest and penalties on said taxes…”
In addition to this off-screen Real Housewives drama, Nida plead guilty to conspiracy to commit fraud and will be sentenced July 8. He previously served five years in prison for racketeering charges.
The IB Times reports that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star who is Phaedra Parks‘ husband, is facing up to a maximum of 30 years in prison. A question remains as to whether or not the two will remain married after Apollo’s sentencing. The report brought readers up to speed in case they didn’t know what Apollo said in April about his marriage to Phaedra, he told Sister 2 Sister this:
“I really admired everything that she did as a woman. I think that we have lost sight of the true picture, which is that we did take an oath to God and we did build a family and a brand. Whatever has come of this reality fiasco, we have had two beautiful children, and at the end of the day, I only wish her the best.”
“I can’t say if it’s going to last. But I hope that it does … I definitely love her. I’ve grown to love her more.”
Apollo Nida and Phaedra Parks have been through their share of marital woes on RHOA. Their marriage took a real hit when the sexting scandal involving Kenya Moore was front and center in the show’s storyline. Apollo bickered with Phaedra for being difficult to get along with and he fought with Kenya for accusing him of hitting on her via text messages. He told her if she really wanted to, he could have slept with her when they were in LA. Although the texting scandal is somewhat in the past now, it tends to come up on occasion during heated RHOA reunions or in a confrontational scene.
Will Apollo’s prison sentence jeopardize his marriage to Phaedra?
