Apollo Nida Defends Himself
Apollo Nida is doing damage control (no, not on his marriage) on recent allegations that he scammed money out of a charity for battered women. According to reports, Apollo was asked to host an event for the charity by Chase DeCarlo of Dio Bambini and asked for a $2,000 appearance fee. Apollo wasn’t given any money prior to the event because Dio Bambini says they were “feeling really leery” about it all.
Apollo is striking back saying (kinda), “Not only am I facing legal troubles, but to have something like this [happen]?” Nida told Radar. “…I get attacked for doing good things.”
DeCarlo claims he argued Apollo down to $1,200 even though he thought Apollo should have done it for free but Apollo doesn’t think so. “There’s a clause that says if I don’t show it’s refunded,” he said. “As for the $2,000 fee, he says, “I’m not going to go to a charity event in Chicago for free.”
It isn’t uncommon for celebs to request an appearance fee at least for their travel expenses. Then again, Apollo isn’t really a celeb. Do you think he should have done the event for no charge?
