Stevie J Star Working With Feds To Pay $1 Million Unpaid Child Support
Via Jasmine Brand reports:
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Stevie J (real name Steven Jordan) is getting close to reaching a plea deal with the federal government over his $1 million in unpaid child support and it appears the terms of the deal with be hammered out within the month, which will determine how long the reality star has to serve in jail — theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports.
As previously reported, the reality star was arrested back in June by the feds, reportedly all over a million-dollar child support debt he owed to his baby mama. He had two children with his former girlfriend back in 1997 and 1998 and was ordered to pay $6,600 a month which was then raised later on to $8,800. Stevie is reportedly accused of not paying his baby mama since 2001 and his back support bill ballooned to $1,107,412.
According to federal court docs filed in the case, Stevie J makes around $27k a month for his role on “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” and from January – August 2013 he made a total of $193,499 from VH1. He has also reportedly made over $105k in music royalties in the past decade.
Then on December 10th, the feds filed docs in the case stating they are still in settlement talks with Stevie J in an attempt to resolve the case without going to trial. They explain the negotiations are not complete but they believe they will be done within the month, with the agreement deciding whether Stevie J will serve jail time and also exactly how he will be paying back the child support debt.
They asked the court to reschedule a hearing that was to take place this month and postpone it so they finish the plea deal talks. The next hearing is scheduled for January 9th, which the feds state they will most likely have the deal completed for the court.
Do you think Stevie will ever pay his back child support??
