Will Apollo Nida have a divorce to contend with on top of his trial for identity theft and fraud? As RadarOnline.com has reported, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star spent Valentine’s Day partying with other women in South Carolina, while his wife, Phaedra Parks, was hundreds of miles away in Louisiana for a book signing. Parks has yet to comment on the scandal, but the owner of a bar Nida visited that night has spoken out to insist his cuddling with hot partygoers was all in good fun.
Michelle Edwards, the owner of Columbia, South Carolina’s Mobay Bar & Grill and owner of Palace II nightclub tweeted at Nida February 15, “had a great night chilling with u and bro at palace and moray!!!” But after his night out became public knowledge thanks to Radar, she quickly attempted to quash any rumors of impropriety.
“OMG I cannot believe that a mere visit to my club & bar turned into something so far from the truth!” she wrote on February 18. “I apologize to Apollo and his family for the total and unnecessary chaos! He merely took pics with me & my staff!”
In one photo published by Radar, Nida grabbed the underside of a female partygoer’s thigh as she wrapped her leg around his waist.
Meanwhile, his wife continues her promotional tour of Secrets of a Southern Belle in Mississippi today, as Nida prepares for his federal trial.
As Radar has reported, he recently scored a legal victory when the judge in the case granted his request to have the trial pushed back to late March, so he may review the government’s case against him and potentially take a plea deal.
