Times are tough for Apollo Nida. While he continues to serve his eight-year prison sentence for fraud, it also seems he's strapped for cash and reaching out to fans for assistance.
One fan recently posted an alleged letter from the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" husband in which she detailed his request for money. She says she initially sent Nida a copy of her book and when he replied, he asked for money to be put on his prison books.
When she wrote back saying she didn't have the extra cash, she says his response was less than pleasant. 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."
Nida is currently serving an eight-year sentence at Federal Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky for check fraud and money laundering.
