The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Apollo Nida declared to ‘In Touch’ in his first interview from prison, in November, that his estranged wife, Phaedra Parks, was not divorcing him.
But after receiving a message through her rep stating that “the divorce is proceeding as planned,” soon after, Apollo now explains to ‘In Touch’ in a new interview that if Phaedra files for divorce, he will fight her for money.
“I will not walk away empty-handed, considering all I’ve put into the marriage over the five years,” he tells In Touch, on newsstands now. “That is completely fair, I think. It wouldn’t be right for her to just take everything and leave me with nothing to come home to.”
Apollo’s biggest gripe: Phaedra hasn’t let him see his sons, Ayden, 4, and Dylan, 19 months. “I can’t see why she would continue to hurt me by not allowing me to see my boys,” Apollo tells ‘In Touch,’ while serving his time at the Federal Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky.

“This isn’t right. If I don’t see my children for eight years, that would be some bulls—, and I would fight for that right! Who in their right mind would allow children to be away from their father for eight years, regardless of where the father is at in the world?”
