Apollo Nida’s fiancée has finally been revealed. The former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star recently announced that he’s engaged, and it turns out his future Mrs. is a woman named Sherien Almufti.
Almufti revealed herself on social media by supposedly telling fans in the comments section of Apollo’s Instagram posts that she was the mystery fiancée, Wetpaint reported. Almufti has also been posting photos of Apollo on her Instagram account.
According to TMZ, Apollo popped the question a few months ago, during one of her visits to see him in prison. It’s believed he proposed to Almufti without a ring.
So who is Almufti? Below are four things you should know about Apollo’s new fiancée.
She’s A Real Estate Agent
According to Almufti’s Instagram account, she’s a realtor, a real estate investor and property manager. Almufti 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.
She’s At Odds With Her Ex-Husband
Almufti’s ex, Derrick Copes, 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.”
She May Appear On ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’
Two weeks ago Almufti posted an Instagram photo hinting that she was filming for “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Apollo’s ex-wife Phaedra Parks still stars on the show. Sharing a picture of her getting her makeup done, Almufti wrote in the caption: “Shout out to @desiree addiesia got me looking like a porcelain doll for a very shady event! Lol #atl #rhoa #arabianqueen.”
Almufti’s ex-husband also slammed her for supposedly pulling their daughter out of school for a week and a half so they could fly down to Atlanta for the reality show. “Who takes their kid out of school to go film when it’s not education,” Copes told Radar. “That is not good parenting.”
She’s Been Dating Apollo For Years
Almufti and Apollo have been secretly dating for a really long time. TMZ reported that the pair has been in a relationship for two years, but it may be longer than that. In an Instagram post this week announcing her engagement, the real estate agent wrote the hashtag summer ’13 in the caption, hinting that she met Apollo three years ago. “That’s the thing about destiny, people meet at the worst time of their lives,” the caption read. “#summerthirteen.”
