Update: Apollo Nida Surrenders for Prison Sentence

Reality star faces the music after failing to appear on Wednesday.

UPDATE: Apollo Nida finally reported to a Kentucky prison early Thursday morning to begin serving his eight-year prison sentence for fraud, TMZ reports. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star failed to show up at his appointed time on Wednesday morning, instead making a detour to his wife Phaedra Parks' Atlanta home. Nida posted a video to his Instagram account just before surrendering to authorities at the Federal Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky, telling his followers he was "about to go asunder." 


Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida has gone from a prisoner to a wanted man after he ditched reporting to prison and allegedly had an explosive argument with his wife, Phaedra Parks.

According to TMZ, instead of reporting for his eight-year prison sentence for money laundering and check fraud, the reality star went to Parks' home where he supposedly got enraged when she refused to deposit money into his prison account. He was reportedly further angered that Parks refused to bring their sons, Dylan and Ayden, to vist him in prison.

TMZ also claimed Nida forcefully entered the premesis, screaming at Parks, "What the f*** is the matter with you?" After his wife threatened to call the cops, he added, "I don't give a f*** about the police, call them, I dare you."  A bystander said that Nida was demanding property and proceeded inside the master bedroom where he began stuffing a large bag with the room's contents.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta camera crew was on board to capture the entire dabacle for the upcoming seventh season.  A warrant is currently out for Nida's arrest. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
