Apollo Nida is speaking out publicly for the first time since being sentenced July 8 to eight years in prison for cashing stolen checks and laundering more than $2.3 million through phony bank accounts.

Yesterday, Apollo sat down for an interview with Atlanta radio host Rodney Perry from BE100’s STFU! and revealed that he’s remorseful about his criminal actions

“I’m still human, but at the end of the day I am remorseful,” Nida said. “I love my kids, and coming from a non-father, non-mother background, at the end of the day, I feel most sad and disappointed that I let my little man down.”

Nida also confessed that his marriage to Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks is on the rocks.

When asked if is his marriage will survive his stint in prison? Nida said, “I doubt it… My wife didn’t even show up for my fu**ing sentencing. I’m still salty about that.”
