RHOA Apollo Nida Feels Disrespected By Rapper TI

Real Housewives Of Atlanta reality star Apollo Nida chat it up with V-103 and discussed the drama in life since he pled guilty to a massive $2.3 million bank fraud scheme. While we all might agree that Apollo should avoid public appearances, he has been doing interviews and attending events.

In the interview he shared his fears, where he stands with his wife Phaedra, being confronted by rapper T.I. and going to prison.

On Leaving His Sons:

“I hurt tremendously. At the end of the day, I’m so remorseful. I grew up without a mother and a father. What hurts me the most is the fact that I could potentially be leaving my sons. I resonate with Ayden more because he’s four years old now . So when he[son Ayden] cries out for me, and I’m not there for him, then potentially who knows what could happen? Let’s just say hypothetically, and hypothetically people because people love to blow things out, my wife wants to go somewhere else that means another man will be in my household. I don’t want that for my child.”

His Marriage To Phaedra:

“We’re still married…I try not to be astonished by anything that goes on. I think Phaedra, in a perfect world, should be supportive as a wife should be…If she chooses to derail from the plan, then that’s what she chooses to do. Apollo is prepared for whatever happens in life. Whatever’s been thrown at me, I deal with it. I would like to say I would want her to stay around and do what a wife should do.”

Committing Crimes To Keep Up With His Wife:

“Apollo has never had a handout from day one. Never. Never asked for nothing, never been given anything. Whatever she has, she has…if I feel like I gotta do what I gotta do, and there’s no other way, and the checks aren’t being distributed equally, you gotta do what you gotta do. You could sit there and say, go get a regular job…but at the end of the day, is that paycheck going to be equivalent to what’s coming in the household?”

Being Confronted By T.I.:

“First of all, I’m out on bond. Don’t nobody really know me. You just don’t run up on a person and just demand anything. One thing you can demand is respect when it’s given. I felt really disrespected at that situation. But I played my cool. I have a lot of respect for T.I., I have a lot of respect for [Michael] Vick…

Once I thought about it, it was wrong. What I said was, my paperwork, Vick’s paperwork, T.I.’s paperwork is says the same thing, it’s language. I never said that T.I. was a rat, I never said Vick was a rat. I know Tip. I thought he was coming up being a man, being supportive because he’s been through that same situation. That’s what I thought. He was hostile. So I jumped back a little bit…because I’m like, is this thing about to go down?

Tip knows how to get in contact with me. If this was an issue, you just don’t make it an issue in public and sit there and try to make it a ploy, I feel, to boost whatever you got going on at the time.

I’m a real humble person at the end of the day, but I can’t tolerate disrespect. I really played that situation real humble. I was humiliated by it. I didn’t even know the cameras were rolling. Afterward I was just like, that is not how men handle the situation.”

Understanding Why T.I. Is Upset:

“He resonates with the people in the streets. Nobody wants to be labeled a snitch. I know nobody wants to be labeled as a rat. I get that. At the end of the day, I shouldn’t have put his name out there like that, but I didn’t mean it like that.”
