Apollo Nida enjoyed his last night of freedom for the next eight-years without his wife and kids.  The couple have been estranged for quite some time.

And according to TMZ, Phaedra is telling friends Apollo has essentially abandoned his family.

Boy if she’s feeling abandoned now, what will the next eight-years be like?

TMZ is reporting:

Phaedra Parks is telling friends Apollo has essentially abandoned his family for the last 2 months … choosing drinking and strip clubs over his wife and 2 kids.

She says over the last week things got so bad and so tense she feared physical abuse … although nothing happened. The 2 haven’t even spoken in a week.

Apollo now begins his 8 year prison sentence for cashing stolen checks and laundering more than 2 million dollars.

We spoke to Apollo … who had no comment … but we’re told he’s pissed off at her for various reasons, including the fact that she didn’t show up for his court hearings and she’s been on a book tour during the last few months … rather than comforting him.

A rep for Phaedra tells us the situation has put a “tremendous strain” on her family … and she’s working hard to bring back a sense of normalcy to everyone’s lives.

Let’s hope he does a lot of soul-searching while in the FBP and finds a skill that will not only help pay back the $1.9 million in restitution but also enable him to turn his life around.
