Reality Star Calls Case “Bull***t”
Stevie J’s hopes for a quick conclusion to his $1.1 million child support case were dashed Monday when a judge ordered that it head to trial.
The feds sued The “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star – who was born Steven Jordan – for the seven figure sum in back support for his son, now 18, and daughter, 17. According to court papers obtained by BOSSIP, Stevie was supposed to pay $8,557 a month for the kids, and as of 2014, owed $1,107,412.
The reality star had unsuccessfully tried to apply for “deferred prosecution,” where he’d essentially get off in exchange for him agreeing to certain terms from the government. But lawyers for the feds revealed that the government rejected Stevie’s request, and a judge scheduled it for trial in December.
And Stevie J said he was none too pleased with the news.
“It went how it went,” he told BOSSIP. “I got some things up my sleeve too. This case is bull***t.”
Accompanied by his son, Lil Stevie, and a woman believed to be Lil Stevie’s mother, Stevie J told BOSSIP outside court that he’s a doting dad who’d just spent the weekend with his children enjoying the Bad Boy Reunion concert in Brooklyn.
“It is what it is, I understand the prosecutors are doing their job, but I’m a great father and I take care of my kids,” Jordan told us. “For the record, I provided everything that they needed.”
He added: “I’m happy that my kids won’t let this case affect our relationship. They were with me all weekend, with their mom. We enjoyed the Puffy show, we all stayed in the hotel, chilled out as a family. Whatever it is, let the courts do what they have to do, but just let me come out the victor that I am.”
Stevie is due back in court Dec. 5.
