Did Apollo Nida Hook-Up with His fiancée Sherien Almufti While He Was Still With Phaedra Parks?
Apollo Nida’s fiancee, Sherien Almufti, is speaking out about her relationship with incarcerated "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star, Apollo Nida. She wants to make it clear that their relationship was not romantic until after Phaedra Parks filed for divorce.

Almufti, 34, stated that she and Nida, 38, had been friends since 2013, but that their feelings turned romantic after he headed off to prison. 

She explained, "I think the night we took him away [to prison] I felt something completely different,” she told Us. “Like, we’ve experienced something, you know. He cried on my shoulder. We held [each other] for a while. I just let him know — I told him as a friend — ‘I’m gonna be there for you.’ See, he was there for me, as well. … So I, in return as a friend first, before anything else, I told him I was gonna be there for him. Because I watched how a lot of people kind of just turned their backs on him.”



Nida began serving his eight-year federal prison sentence in September 2014 after being convicted of fraud. "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star, Phaedra Parks, filed for divorce from Nida a month later, ending their five-year marriage.
Sherien admits she has no clue if Phaedra knew she was supporting  Apollo when he first went to prison. But, she adds that things never turned romantic prior to his split with Parks. She said she has "tremendous respect for his marriage.”

Almufti shared, "I was married before and my husband cheated on me. And at the same time, I was actually dating someone. So I wasn't like — it wasn't that way. It was just more — it started out as a business situation.” 

Sherien said that she used to talk to Apollo about real estate in Philadelphia. They grew closer over the next few years and she visited him in prison when she could. 

Last November, Apollo proposed to Sherien in prison. “He just held my hand and he asked and I didn't think he was serious and I was like, ‘What? This is not how I obviously imagined you asking me to marry you, but OK.'  But, yeah, it was unexpected. But he did promise me a different proposal — a different setting.”

It appears it may take some time for Sherien and Apollo to be able to legally wed, especially after a judge reversed his decision on Parks and Nida's divorce. The judge made the decision due to Phaedra misspelling Nida’s name on legal documents, as well as Nida never actually being served the finalized divorce papers.
