RHOA Star Apollo Nida To Pay $2 Million For Fraud Scheme

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Apollo Nida will have to shell out nearly $2 million for his involvement in a check fraud scheme. 

According to court documents obtained by TheWrap.com, Apollo - who's married to "Real Housewives" star Phaedra Parks - was slapped with a nearly $2 million restitution bill. The money is "due and payable immediately." 

Among the victims he owes money to is JP Morgan Chase, which will receive $828,000.  He also has to pay thousands of dollars to the IRS and Delta Airlines, as well as the states of California, Connecticut and Texas.  

Last week, Apollo was sentenced to eight years behind bars.  He's accused of opening fake bank accounts under stolen identities and later funneling stolen checks into those accounts.
