Hip-Hop Rumors: Are the Allegations Against Apollo Nida True?

Angela Stanton is fishing for an outlet to allow her to continue telling her side of the story. For those who might be out of the loop, Angela Stanton came forward a few years ago and alleged that she was involved in a criminal ring that involved identity theft, fraud and embezzlement, lead by Apollo Nida, who is married to Phaedra Parks of Real Housewives of Atlanta, and his brother.

Stanton wrote a book entitled, Lies of a Real Housewife presumably alleging that Phaedra Parks might not have physically been involved with the crimes in question but that she probably knows more than she lets on about the situation.

Welp, we’re having déjà vu because Nida is in trouble on similar charges, once again, and Stanton is working hard to push her book. She released the following statement:

In 2012, I released my personal memoir, Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil. In the book, I detailed the struggles I faced as a young woman drawn to the temptations of crime and the false glamour it affords. I alone am responsible for the mistakes I made as a young woman. Yet, I have felt a certain sense of anger toward the people who used me during that period of my life. Certain individuals found me at a time when I was vulnerable and searching for friendship, and used those traits to lure me into doing their bidding.

She added:

I read with sadness the news that Phaedra Parks’ husband, Apollo Nida, was arrested for alleged schemes that are remarkably similar to those that lured me years ago. I was troubled to learn that the alleged crimes involved the use of a vulnerable woman to carry out the schemes. The story is all too familiar to me. I sincerely hope that Ms. Parks has not been part of his alleged crimes. I hope that she, like I, learned from her mistakes.

And her last bit:

Although tragic, the news of Apollo’s arrest has been vindicating for me. Since I published my book, Phaedra Parks has used her wealth and influence in an attempt to silence me. She filed lawsuits against my publisher, and threatened them with years of expensive litigation if they did not cease publication of my book. As a result, I lost nearly all the royalties I was owed. Ms. Parks used her influence in the media to discredit my story and smear my name, casting me as a delusional liar on the pages of popular blogs. After going to prison and losing everything, my story was all I had left, and she took that from me.

Stanton is involved in a legal battle with Phaedra Parks, probably for defamation, but she mentioned that she can’t speak about it at the advice of her lawyer. Stanton claims that she really just wants to share her story–you know, as a cautionary tale and that she is seeking the “appropriate forum” to do so.

In other words, she’s looking for big dollars.

    Considering Apollo’s current legal troubles, her book doesn’t seem so far-fetched after all. I always thought it was strange that an “esteemed” lawyer(Phaedra) would be anywhere near an ex-con convicted of white-collar crimes. SMH.

    It never seemed so far out to me. I had an inkling Stanton was being truthful. Phaedra is a walking contradiction. Personally if she is involved and did not get caught the first time, I hope she does the second time. She never came forward to help out Ms Stanton or even put forward the appearance of doing so. Like I tell my kids, never get envious of those who seem to have more, do more, or be more, you never know what they are doing or sacrificing to get there!

    I commend Ms. Stanton for telling her story. I hope she find success with it! On the other hand, Apollo should be ashamed of himself with these charges and the way he acted out on RHOA last episode…totally unnecessary! And Phaedra…I would go pro se before I let her represent me! She’s a joke. She better hope all her tracks are covered or Apollo won’t be the only one going down!
