*Days after he was released early from prison, Phaedra Parks’ ex-husband, Apollo Nida, has been arrested again.

The court has ordered Nida back into custody after he allegedly broke a technical requirement pertaining to the rules of his release. No details regarding what he violated have been provided.

However, according to SandraRose.com:

Apollo had a list of rules to follow while living in the halfway house and he reportedly broke the rules by having intimate relations in the halfway house. Most halfway houses allow visitors only in specific areas of the building. Some halfway houses do not allow visitors at all.

But Nida’s lady-love claims he didn’t violate anything when it comes to his probation and says that his PO “will die mad.”

The Federal Bureau of Prisons website confirms Apollo is now located at FDC Philadelphia, and not at the Philadelphia halfway house where he was expected to stay until Oct. 15.

“He was taken back into custody. I wouldn’t say it was an arrest because it’s not a new charge. It was an order of the court to bring him into custody,” the representative explained, Page Six reports.

“We took him to Federal Bureau of Prisons and they will deal with it since he was in their custody,” the representative noted.

Nida pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail, wire and bank fraud in May 2014 and was sentenced to 96 months in prison. Back in March, his sentence was reduced by one year.

“Apollo and I, obviously, are going to be connected through our wonderful children through the rest of our lives,” Parks explained in a November 2016 interview with ET, about co-parenting with her incarnated ex. “I try to keep him in the loop as much as possible because he obviously is in prison. I’m very cognizant that he wants to be a father … and when he reaches out and calls, we try to make sure there’s an open line of communication with the boys.”

Parks and Nida’s divorce was finalized in 2017. They share two sons together: Ayden and Dylan.
