Real Housewives of Atlanta husband Apollo Nida has already proven himself to be quite the hustler, but now he’s taking his business acumen to the land of the Internet.
You can now get your hands on your very own Phine Body Apollo Autograph Card with his photo and signature from his website for “Only $6.99″ plus shipping and handling.
You better hurry — with his court date rapidly approaching, we’re sure this is a limited time offer.
Not only that, but Apollo also has the nerve to be demanding $2,000 up front to attend a charity event for battered women and children. Meanwhile Kandi has agreed to do the event for free.
“At first I thought he would do it for free,” the event organizer Chase DeCarlo says. “His people were saying … he wouldn’t mind appearing.”
But then Apollo changed his mind and demanded $2,000.
DeCarlo says, “At first it was like, ‘Ok, I’ll do it for $2,000.’” Then, DeCarlo says he bargained him down to “about $1,200. It’s still a lot, but we’re still in discussion. He just sent me a contract for $2,000!”
“We’re trying to get Kandi to come too, and she said she would come for free,” DeCarlo reveals. “I’m still talking with my people to see if it’s worth it getting Apollo to come at all. We have people with a better background willing to do it for free, so I don’t know.”
The event is scheduled for May 2nd, but Apollo’s day in court is set a few days before on April 25th. The organizer is afraid Apollo might take the money and not physically be able to make it to the event.
“I’m really, really leery that his court date is before the event,” DeCarlo says, especially since Nida wants the money up front. “It makes sense why he’s pressuring me and wanting me to book him.”
“His people told me that I have to pay him everything up front and then they’ll send me a photograph to print on a flyer,” DeCarlo explains. “I spoke to different celebrities, and he’s the only one who really wants to be paid before the event even happens.”
$2,000 up front right before a major court date? Apollo must need money for his ‘In Case I Get Locked Up’ fund.
