Phaedra Parks Refuses To Let Apollo’s Sons Visit Him In Prison
Phaedra Parks is standing firm by her decision to keep her young boys away from their father as he continues to serve a prison sentence in Kentucky.
Because because it’s not in Ayden and Dylan’s best interest to visit Apollo Nida right now.
Nearly one year has passed since Apollo Nida began his eight-year prison sentence for fraud. But despite the fact that his RHOA star wifePhaedra Parks has yet to file for divorce, RadarOnline.com has learned that Parks still hasn’t visited her husband behind bars — and she hasn’t brought their kids to see him either!
According to an insider, Parks, and the couple’s sons Ayden, 5, and Dylan, 2, have not made the trip to Kentucky, where he is being held in Federal prison.
In April, Parks defended her decision not to take her sons to see their father.
“The one thing I will say is that every single decision I make is based on one thing: the well-being of my two boys,” she said. “It’s easy for people to ask why she did that or why she isn’t doing this, but the simple truth is unless you are in that situation yourself, you really can’t make that judgment.”
At the time, Nida — whose plight with the law played out on Season 7 of the Bravo show — openly begged his wife to bring them and insisted that he needed “that support” from his family.
But Parks stood by what she believed to be in her children’s best interest.
“I do my best to make smart decisions after carefully considering all options and consulting with experts and others who advise me,” she said. “I know in my heart that everything I do is based on what is best for my children
In addition to being kept away from his boys, Apollo is apparently struggling to get money on his books (Where is Kenya Moore?) and recently begged a fan for some cash.
Hit the flip to see the story…
According to a fan, after she sent Apollo Nida a book to read in jail he thanked her but begged for $25 instead. And when she refused, he sent her back a scathing message.
In fact, according to one fan/author who graciously sent Apollo a book of hers a few months ago, Apollo hit her up for $25 and had the nerve to throw shade when she wrote back and refused to do so!
Here’s what she wrote:
So I sent Apollo Nida from real housewives of atl a book a few months ago. He sent me a letter back saying that he was reading it. Letter was cool until the end where he asked me to western union him $25/50 dollars. Never posted it on social media bcuz I didn’t want to blast him like that. I just wrote him back, thanked him for reading the book & respectfully told him that I have a daughter and b4 I send money to a guy I don’t know I’d rather put that 25 in her savings account. (Nothing personal.) Well he responded back and basically said he didn’t know 25.00 was a lot and he will pray that I gain financially wealth so that I can afford to put more than $25 dollars into my daughters savings. Lol. That made my day. ~I may not have a lot of money, but at least I can walk across the street~
If you can’t make out the writing in Apollo’s response letter, it reads:
Hello – Hope all is well. Thank (you) for your kind words – wish you well on your book. I did not know $25 was a breaking or turning point for you. I apologize I will pray that you get financial wealth so you can assist others and apply more than $25.00 to you daughter’s savings account.
What do YOU think about Apollo clapping back at the fan for refusing to give him money???
