Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida is starting fresh as a barber. Weeks after his release from prison and after an alleged parole violation, Phaedra Parks’ ex-husband gave his Instagram followers a glimpse into his new life, returning to his roots cutting hair.
Apollo, 40, posted a slideshow of a client and his fresh haircut. “It looks like ya boi AP back in business,” he wrote in the caption.
“I know you see the FADE GAME STILL CRAZY,” he added before tagging a barbershop located in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta.
His followers flooded his comments section with messages of support. “Oh, so now your fine a** is a barber?” one person wrote. “Well at least it sounds like you have a plan. Anyway, welcome home, and stay out of trouble.”
Another person remained hopeful for his return to RHOA. “Good for you,” the fan told him. “I hope to see you back on reality tv.”
Apollo was released from prison and transferred to a halfway house on June 4. Nine days later, he allegedly violated his parole and was sent back to a detention center in Philadelphia.
On June 14, Apollo’s fiancée Sherien Almufti took to Instagram and fired back at claims he violated parole. “They can’t stop us babe!!!” she wrote at the time. “For those who are confused Apollo didn’t violate a godd**n thing. Another crime against a black man in the system. Jealousy is a disease and his PO will die mad!!"
