LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – The Apollo Nida prison term sentence begins on RHOA Sunday. And a Phaedra Parks Apollo Nida divorce process starts thereafter. But LALATE can exclusively report that there is one major twist in RHOA Sunday that fans of the show, and readers of LALATE, will be left scratching their heads. The twist concerns a stunning BMW 5 Series depicted in the explosive showdown between Apollo and Phaedra. Does Phaedra own that BMW, who owns that BMW, and was that BMW one of the alleged items involved in Apollo Nida’s fraud scheme?
Apollo Nida’s prison term sentence stems from a fraud operation revolving around phony car dealerships. During prison sentencing, Apollo told the court that he had no salary from Bravo and could not afford his lifestyle (whatever that might be). In an explosive Sunday RHOA scene this weekend, Apollo comes back home to Phaedra Parks. He drives up in a brand new 5 series BMW. He storms in and gives Parks the garage door opener. But he does not give Parks the car keys. Apollo is several hours late for reporting to prison. So where is that expensive BMW going? Apollo in the scene does not give Phaedra the keys to the BMW. But he leaves it in the driveway and goes on a tirade around the house. Phaedra does not ask for the keys to the car either.
Apollo was convicted on a fraud operation that stemmed from fake car dealerships and fictional loans. The Government claims, and Nida agreed, that he conspired to “create entities purporting to be auto dealerships, including: Acura Carland, Inc., Ferrari Autohaus, Inc., Final Auto Solutions, Inc., Fitzgerald Motors, Inc., Goodwin Automall, Inc., North Point Volvo, Inc., Scarritt Motors, Inc., and Signature Luxury Imports, Inc.”. The government Criminal Information against Nida details several passages about cars, dealerships, and car loans.
The government claims that the alleged conspiracy allegedly sought to “create documents and websites falsely appearing to have been produced by legitimate auto dealerships, and present them to lenders, in order to obtain loan approvals” and then “to apply for loans in the names of stolen identities for fictitious purchases of vehicles from the purported auto dealerships the conspirators created, or real dealerships the conspirators imitated.”
The government’s case did not particular mention delivery of cars. But it did mention delivery of fake loans and stealing identification information stemming form car loans. “It was a part of the conspiracy, and the manner and means thereof, for defendant APOLLO E. NIDA… and other conspirators… to rent dozens of mailboxes at UPS Stores in the Northern District of Georgia and elsewhere, under various aliases, including many names of identity theft victims.” During last year’s reunion, Nida accused Kenya Moore of not owning her Bentley. This season, Phaedra has been seen driving a Mercedes.
