The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Apollo Nida’s legal woes have come to a head. On Tuesday, Phaedra Parks’ husband pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail, wire and bank fraud; a scheme which amounted to nearly $2.3 million.
RHOA co-star, Kenya Moore, who has had her fair share of run in’s with Nida, took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to respond to the reality star’s guilty plea.
“You can have a criminal past and not have a criminal mind. They can be rehabilitated. All ex-cons are not current criminals. To be crystal,” she wrote.
“God is so good. He exposes your enemies for you. All you have to do is trust and believe only in him. Stay strong and let him work. #justice,” she also tweeted.
Following the 35-year-old’s court hearing on Tuesday, United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said in a statement:
“This defendant participated in a sweeping fraud scheme that exploited many segments of the financial system, including phony claims submitted to federal and state agencies, loans secured by vehicles, and even basic identity theft associated with stolen checks,”
“Nida and his conspirators were conniving and creative in their scheme to steal victims’ identities and defraud them. The United States Secret Service will continue to adapt its investigative methodologies to arrest criminals who use their technological savvy to violate unsuspecting victims such as those in this case,” said Reginald G. Moore, Special Agent in Charge of the United States Secret Service, Atlanta Field Office.”
Earlier this year, 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. The 35-year-old is set to be sentenced sometime in July.
50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”
Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.
While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!
All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.
And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.
Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
