Stevie J. held millions of viewers and bloggers captive with his Stevie-isms, facial expressions and dysfunctional relationships playing out on VH1’s reality show Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta. His love triangle with model and aspiring artist Joseline Hernandez and Mimi Faust was reality television
Steebie J, as Joseline calls him in her Latina accent, is facing real life drama that is far from a laughing matter. Steven “Stevie J” Jordan is being put on blast by Carol Bennett, the mother of two of his children. Reality
ratchet television’s favorite bad boy owes a staggering $1,158,391 in back child support to Bennett and she is letting the world know. According to a July 2013 statement with the New York City Office of Child Support Enforcement, over the course of 14 years, he has only paid a total of $132,220.30.
On Thursday (October 31) Bennett, who is a former music executive who helped Stevie J with his music career, held a press conference to out the deadbeat dad.
“My goal is not to incarcerate Stevie J.,” Bennett explained during the conference. “My intent is to find a resolution and to co-parent with Stevie J. and that means emotionally and financially so that our children can receive the support that they deserve.”
Bennett’s rep, Sibrena Stowe de Fernandez, revealed to RadarOnline.com a voice mail from Stevie J. to Bennett that says:
”What’s going on, uh I see all this press it’s going crazy and then I see something ’bout a press conference on October 31. I would ask you not to do a press conference…so let’s try to figure out what we doing, what’s goin’ on aight?”
I guess the voice mail was too little, too late.
