Apollo, who was recently sentenced to eight years in prison for bank fraud, will not only have to pay for his crimes with his freedom, he’ll also have to pony up plenty of cold, hard cash in restituion.
TMZ that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star has to pay back a total of $1.9 million to the various companies and governments he defrauded.
Apollo will have to pay $39,275 to the State of Texas, $45,525 to Connecticut, $15,778 to California, $127,011 to the IRS, and $24,985 to Delta Airlines. While those amounts certainly don’t add up to chump change, they’re nothing compared to what he owes back to the bank — a whopping $828,300 is owed to JP Morgan Chase.
While it looks like Apollo’s got plenty to trouble his mind as it is, he recently confessed that one of his biggest worries is whether or not his wife, Phaedra Parks, will stick by him while he does his bid.
However, a source close to the couple claims that Phaedra is wasting no time in distancing herself from her troubled hubby.
“She is embarrassed by him and is trying to distance herself from him,” says the pal. “As a lawyer being married to someone like Apollo hurts her career, and she spent so much time defending him — its made her look like a fool.”
Do you think Apollo’s punishment is fair? Are you surprised by how much he’ll have to pay back?
