Apollo Nida is speaking out and clearing up some of the rumors circulating about his current circumstances.
If you recall, about a week ago T.I. confronted Apollo in the streets about some tweets Apollo made basically calling T.I. and Mike Vick both snitches. The tweets came shortly after Apollo entered a guilty plea and tried to liken his deal to those of both T.I. and Vick.
Apollo sat down with Atlanta’s Ryan Cameron Morning Show and tried to set everything straight.
Check out some highlights.
On his T.I/Mike Vick tweets:
Apollo admitted he was wrong for posting the tweet about T.I. and Michael Vick. He said he NEVER said Tip or Mike were rats.
On his run-in with T.I.:
Apollo said when T.I. first approached him he thought he was coming to offer him support. He soon realized Tip wasn’t there to offer support and was a little hostile so he jumped back and put his phone up in case he had to do something.
Tip’s friend/rapper Killer Mike recorded the confrontation and Apollo said he didn’t like the “ploy” they used because he KNOWS T.I. and he could have just called him. He said, “You don’t do that.”
On his paperwork having “snitch” language:
Apollo said he would want to work with fraud prevention to “help” authorities with preventing fraud. He’s not currently working with authorities but if he does, that’s what he would be doing.
On why he committed fraud:
Apollo explained he grew up without a mother and father so he didn’t want his actions to keep him absent in his own children’s lives.He said reality TV can bring on a lot of stress so he felt pressured to sustain a certain lifestyle. He said he is not a thief and never took money out of people’s account. [Ummm…]
On if he did it:
He confessed he did it and now he has to lay in the bed he made. He said, “Things happen in life.” He’s remorseful for his actions and he hurts tremendously. When asked why didn’t he just get a regular job he revealed it wouldn’t have been enough money to sustain.
On his sentencing:
He said his sentence is not 30 years. He said it could range from 0-30 years. He revealed although he has no clue how long he’s going to be away, he’s in high spirits and believes in a higher power.
On if Phaedra knew anything about his dealings:
He confirmed Phaedra didn’t know or do anything. They made an announcement in court saying she was exonerated.
On if he and Phaedra are still together:
Yes. He said he woke up to his wife this morning. He explained if they were to separate, the prenup outlines that she would keep what she has and if the checks are not distributed equally–he has to do what he has to do.
On Phaedra’s mother living with them:
He said Ms Bell (Phaedra mom) lives in their home Tuesday thru Friday. He admitted she has been a big help around the house and that he goes to her for guidance.
On if he slept with Kenya Moore:
Apollo said he never slept with her.
It will be very interesting to see how much time Apollo gets or doesn’t gets. Plus, now that he already pleaded guilty it’ll be interesting to see if Phaedra and Apollo stay married.
