Phaedra Parks loves calling the shots!
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star refuses to take her two kids to see their father Apollo Nida in prison — and according to his fiancee, it's breaking his heart.
RadarOnline.com spoke exclusively to Sherien Almufti, who said the entire ordeal is sad and upsetting.
"Apollo's so in love with his sons and unfortunately his ex doesn't bring them to see him," the real estate investor explained to Radar. "There isn't a birthday, Father's Day or holiday where Apollo doesn't send them gifts and write them letters. He loves them."
"Whatever he and Phaedra are going through, I hope that one day they can resolve it for the sake of their kids," she continued. "We're still engaged and I see him every week. When we get married, I will welcome and love his children as if they were my own and I can't wait until he gets out so we can all be a family again."
A source previously told Radar that Parks doesn't want to put her kids through the pain of visiting their dad in prison, where he will remain until August 2020.
In his children's absence, Almufti said Nida — who was sentenced to eight years behind bars in 2014 after pleading guilty to bank fraud and identity theft charges — is spending most of his time reading and staying in tip-top shape.
"He's become the prison's fitness guru. Literally everybody in there goes to him for nutrition and working out tips," she revealed. "Working out and focusing on his body is how he keeps his mind being locked up and he loves teaching and helping other inmates in the process."
