Cheating rumors ran rampant when Apollo Nida was spotted out night-clubbing hopping on Valentine’s Day — without his Real Housewives of Atlanta star wife Phaedra Parks. And the situation wasn’t helped by the fact that he was spotted spending time with another woman. But now Apollo himself is speaking out and shutting all of the gossip down.

TMZ spoke with the Real Househusband this week, and he was insistent that there was a very good explanation for why he was in South Carolina on the romantic day with another woman. Apollo explains that the mystery lady in question is, in fact, his friend’s sister who was bartending at the club that he was making a paid appearance at.

As for why Phaedra was not by her hubby’s side, she was in Louisiana at the time, in the middle of a book signing tour. No foul play here!

Apollo also told the site that he is 100 percent faithful, and that no sex tapes, baby mamas, or naked photos will be surfacing any time soon. Phew!

Glad we put this situation to rest. The reality star is already in enough trouble with the law — he’s facing federal charges for identity theft and bank fraud — that it could make things even worse for his young family, including the couple’s two children under 3.

Do you think Apollo is being truthful? Tell us in the comments below.
