After reading the legal documents available on Apollo Nida’s arrest, it’s clear that the FEDS have the goods on Apollo. Their evidence dates back to 2009, just after Apollo was released from prison and just months before he married Phaedra. So Phaedra’s “clean” man has been dirty since she picked him up. The question is, was she blinded by her attraction to Apollo’s good looks? Or have we been over looking all the signs of Phaedra’s complicity or even involvement with the criminal activities of Apollo?
Ever since Phaedra and Apollo have been together, there has been a lot of talk on the streets about Apollo cheating, Atlanta is full of strippers and gay men and both have been in the mix of the numerous rumors swirling around town. But to be fair the same rumors abound about Gregg and Peter. Nonetheless, all those little hussies that used to turn up on twitter that we all just dismissed out of pocket, may need a second look. But that’s the least of the problems.
The legal documents make it clear that Apollo loves female accomplices. And female victims. All of the people from whom he stole identities were women. All of his minions who actually cashed the checks were women. Let’s have a look at a few of those.
Angela Stanton has been around ever since I started this blog in 2011. She began begging for my attention on twitter almost immediately. She seemed desperate and broken and more than a little crazy to me at the time. Now I wonder if it was just her desperation to be listened to. The salient points of her story that Vibe agreed to sell as an e-book, were that Phaedra was her friend who was helping her with he life. She became very close to Phaedra. Phaedra introduced her to Apollo. Angela Stanton flat out alleged that Phaedra and Apollo were making fraudulent insurance checks and that Stanton was the one that cashed them. Stanton says they did this for two years until Stanton was arrested and did a whooping four months of jail time.
When Stanton got out of jail in 2005, Apollo was locked up on a RICO charge serving time on an 18 year sentence. According to Stanton’s book, Lies of a Housewife, Phaedra introduced her to Apollo’s” brother” Everett. It is believed that Everett is not a biological brother but a very close friend of Apollo’s. Stanton explained that she began working with them on a stolen car ring.
Stanton described how “we would get the VIN ..” and take them back to Phaedra and Everett where Phaedra and Everett would cook up false insurance documents. Eventually, Everett not Phaedra who was charged with falsifying insurance information among many, many other things. Stanton continues saying “Everything was going fine in our relationship for about three or four years until this last incident..” Stanton then drags her family into the story telling about her cousin who went to the DMV with fake information and was questioned by the cops.
Stanton says she asked Phaedra “where do we stand now (with the project)?” According to Stanton, she, Phaedra, and Everett left the next morning to drive three luxury vehicles to Tennessee. At that point she and Everett got arrested. No mention in the telling about this “third car”. UPDATE: I just read an excerpt from Lies. The third car was driven by Stanton’s cousin. No mention of Phaedra. The appear to be that Phaedra was not arrested, Phaedra was not investigated, Phaedra was not charged, Phaedra was not convicted. In a huge investigation, involving years of crime and six defendants, Phaedra was not involved in anyway whatsoever. It seemed that Phaedra was not there at all.
Stanton ended her story by saying that Phaedra was supposed to represent her and take care of her kid. Stanton was seven months pregnant at the time and had her baby while serving five years in state prison. Stanton seems to feel that Phaedra was supposed to save her, the way she felt that Phaedra saved her from the streets.
Then in April 2013 Jessica “Lacey” Volker appeared to give a radio interview on Hip Hop Daily Press. She said that Phaedra was the godmother of her child. She is apparently writing a book about her life that would include Phaedra. She claimed Phaedra slept with her husband, and arranged to have “girls” go to parties for um services. She claimed Phaedra was committing mortgage fraud and was involved in a prostitution ring. She claimed Phaedra hates kids. She found it crazy that Phaedra was playing the good mother on TV. She said that she knew her in 2000-2003ish.
Lacey says that Phaedra has the ability to draw people in and make them trust her. Lacey says she was trying to get out of prostitution and Phaedra was trying to draw her back in. She also said she was friend’s with Kandi’s ex,AJ’s ex-wife. She implied that Kandi and Phaedra have a lot of secrets on each other and that they run in the same circles. Lacey has also started a foundation for children of incarcerated parents. Ironic?
Both Stanton and Volker had some things that caused us to disbelieve them. Stanton seemed to be practically a lover scorned. And Volker didn’t seem to have any evidence of what she was saying. And who makes someone who hates kids their babies godmother?
Last night, or I should say every early this morning, I began reading the legal documents with my mouth hanging open. My first reaction was, well Phaedra surely put his ass out in September and we will be hearing about divorce proceedings on the finale. Then I remembered that the two of them have been making appearances together for Phine Body and that Phaedra was with him in NYC just this past week when the house husbands were all finally asked to be on WWHL.
So is Phaedra Parks just doing the good wife routine and standing by her man? Didn’t she just have a long conversation with Apollo about being on her side and standing by her over the Kenya incident? I found it interesting that Apollo repeated the phrase that pissed Porsha off during the Kenya conversation on WWHL when he said, “If I wanted her I could have had her.” Especially after Peter explained to him what a bad thing it was that he said that. Is he that dumb? Was he antagonizing her? Do they have so much on each other that they can’t afford to leave the other? Or have Angela Stanton, Jessica Lacey Volker and the tribe of whores on twitter been telling the truth all along?
UPDATE! (I’m kinda getting sick of that word) a rep for Angela Stanton says her case with Phaedra is scheduled for February, 4th. (After several reschedules). Stanton has a high powered attorney who has taken her case pro bono to countersue Phaedra for defamation, damages, and punitive damages. This Apollo situation is going to make it hard for Phaedra to prove that Angela was lying.
