Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Apollo Nida wasn’t able to see his sons on Christmas due to complications with his visitation list. According to Apollo, however, previous reports that Phaedra sent him a care package, or allows the children to video chat with him are completely false.
In an interview with TMZ Live, Apollo denies the reports that he doesn’t want to see his 3 and 5 year old sons right now while he is in jail. “For my own mental sanity, I try to recognize where [Phaedra] is coming from but I never agreed to the fact that I didn’t want to see my children,” said Apollo. “I never agreed to that. I still want to see them and regardless of where I’m at, I’m still trying to find a common ground to parent them. But the fact that I am in a different facility, I am at a camp now, there have been discussions about her allowing me to see the children and her bringing them to see me. Hopefully that happens in the near future.”
Apollo says that the new facility he is at is a lot more lenient. He says that they’re not exactly behind a fence and it’s less of a prison atmosphere. For this reason, he believes that Phaedra would likely bring the children to see him. In the mean time, however, Apollo denies the previous reports that he’s been able to maintain contact via video chats. “To squash some of the allegations we don’t FaceTime and I do not receive care packages from them. I will say, for the most part, I do call like once a month, maybe twice, depending on my schedule.”
When asked about the status of his marriage, Apollo shares, “I really don’t know. We’re still married on paper. We haven’t had an opportunity to sit down and talk. I don’t really know what’s going on. There’s been a lot of speculation.” He goes on to say that the divorce is still up in the air and that Phaedra is still meeting with his legal team. “I need closure right now,” says Apollo. “I have a bunch of ill feelings. I’m very frustrated and angry. I don’t want to say the wrong thing prematurely but at the end of the day I think it’s time for her and I to sit down and figure out if we’re going to move forward or move on with different relationships. It needs to be done in a manner where the children understand that we can come together on a mature level.”
