Apollo Nida took to YouTube on Wednesday to slam allegations that he demanded $2,000.00 up front to attend a charity event.
Earlier this week, Chase DeCarlo of Dio Bambini, told Radar Online that he asked Nida to attend a charity event for battered women and children. According to DeCarlo, Apollo would not agree to attend the event for free and demanded $2,000.00
But according to The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, who is expected to face a judge next week to face charges of identity theft and bank fraud, claims that the allegations are totally bogus.
“I received a disturbing phone call this morning from my booking agent telling me that something went viral about a ploy to use me and use my brand for a so called non profit organization,” he said in the YouTube video. “Apparently somebody contacts the booking company and says ‘hey we would like to book Apollo to come speak at this charity event for some children. They [booking company] know I’m all about the kids, so they sent over the contract. Upon signing the contract is 50% deposit, fully refundable if I don’t show or if something happens and I can’t show. At that point, the contract was never signed, no money was exchanged and next thing you know, it’s all going viral that Apollo is trying to run a scam on a charity foundation.”
He continued, “The $2,000.00 that was my fee for going wasn’t for profit, it was for lodging, flight, clothes, food etc … For someone to do this to me it’s just complete erradic behavior. Right now there are circumstances going on that everybody knows about. I have a lot of people that are supportive and you have a lot of haters that are not supporters.”
“I’m upset, that’s why I’m taking it to the streets. I just decided to put this footage out here because I’ve done nothing wrong,” he added. “If you want to attack me, I’ve decided now a days I’m about to attack back.”
In January, Nida turned himself into authorities after being accused of opening bank accounts under stolen identities to commit bank fraud, check fraud and to create fake companies. A judge has since ordered Apollo to come up with a deal by April 25 or else Phaedra Park’s husband could face jail time.
‘Black Panther’ Sequel To Focus On Okoye & Dora Milaje?!
A Billi, A Billi, A Billi … when your movie nets a billion dollars OF COURSE there’s going to be a sequel!!
As Black Panther continues to dominate the box office, talk has already turned to a sequel. Marvel president Kevin Fiege confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that they will definitely be returning the Wakanda stating, “we absolutely will do that.” But when asked what direction the movie would take, his answer was intriguing:
“I think there’s lots of potential. It’s a balance between leaving people wanting more and then giving them too much, but I would watch a movie about any of those characters you just named. I think Shuri’s astounding, and you’ll see much more of her in our universe. Okoye, I think I’d watch three action films just Okoye. I’m not saying we’re doing that, but I’m saying that we’re intrigued by them.”
Yessss, be intrigued! We all need more Danai Gurira (who plays Dora Milaje leader, Okoye) in our lives.
