It's no secret that many reality stars have found themselves in trouble whether it's filing bankruptcy, losing their home or going broke. The latest news is about Apollo Nida, husband to attorney Phaedra Parks on Bravo's reality show "Real Housewives of Atlanta."

According to reports, Nida is allegedly being charged on several counts of criminal activities such as identify theft, conspiracy, bank fraud, and more. When Nida was first questioned by U.S. Marshall's is unclear; however, reports indicate that the investigation began in 2012. In Jan. he was questioned in Atlanta, Georgia regarding bank fraud and identity theft, and he was eventually charged.

So far, Nida has not spoken out regarding the accusations. His latest post dated Jan. 21 on Twitter, he stated being in New York. He nor Phaedra Parks have made any mention or showed signs of him being in trouble with the law.

According to Daily Mail, a lady by the name of Gayla St. Julien was allegedly involved in criminal acts with Nida to steal the identities of others and commit acts of fraud. Through investigation, it was discovered that she had over 40 bank accounts linked to stolen identities and a laundry list of other charges. She was investigated and charged. Once charged, she began helping authorities to build a case against Nida. Nida was allegedly recorded in conversation with St. Julien. Nida turned himself in on Thursday, Jan. 23 but was released on a pretrial bond of $25,000.

Nida, who previously spent five years in prison (2004 to 2009) for racketeering is no stranger to the judicial system. Reports state that Nida is currently on parole. If he is found guilty, he will most likely spend time in prison. His trial date is set for Feb. 12.

Nida married Parks in 2009, the year he was released from prison. The couple has two children together.
