Earlier this week, news broke that Real Housewives Of Atlanta’s Apollo Nida had gotten engaged while behind bars to a mystery woman set to make her reality tv debut on the show this season. Just days later, that mystery woman was finally revealed.
Her name is Sherien Almufti and according to Wetpaint, the jig was up once she started telling fans in the comment sections on Apollo’s Instagram posts that the she was his fianceé. Almufti has also been posting photos of Apollo on her IG account.
According to info the media is rounding up from that account, Almufti is a realtor, a real estate investor and a property manager. She used to live in Pennsylvania but moved to New Jersey so she could be closer to Apollo, who’s currently serving an eight-year sentence for fraud at Jersey’s Fort Dix Federal Correctional Facility.
TMZ reported that Sherien and Apollo have been dating for about two years, which would mean he was dating her while still married to Phaedra Parks.
Almufti’s ex, Derrick Copes, (who divorced her two years ago) told Radar Online that he doesn’t have a problem with her being engaged to Apollo, but he doesn’t like that she takes their 8-year-old daughter to prison to visit the former Bravo star. “I have asked her numerous times to stop doing that,” he told the outlet. “My daughter is eight years old, she is not happy to go into a prison. If you want me to give you money, I will, but at the same time you have a responsibility to our daughter.”
“If Apollo is in my daughter’s life, that’s no problem — but don’t take her to prison. Phaedra doesn’t even take her kids to prison!”
“She took my daughter out of school a week an half ago to go to Atlanta to film. Who takes their kid out of school to go film when it’s not educational? That is not good parenting. I don’t want my daughter on the show. I don’t want her going to a jail.”
“At the end of the day I don’t have a problem with them seeing each other. We’ve been divorced for two years. It’s not about Sherien’s relationship with him. It’s only about me not being happy with our 8 year old going to a prison.”
The story surrounding Apollo and his bride to be makes for a perfect RHOA storyline. We can’t wait to see how this plays out in the days and weeks to come.
