Stevie J just can’t catch a break. After seemingly getting his life together by completing a rehab stint and landing his own VH1 show, the “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” star claims that he’s being extorted!
If you haven’t heard the news, Stevie J allegedly owes over $1 million in child support and has until mid-April to turn himself in to authorities.
Although he’s plead guilty to the charges, he insists that it’s all a part of an extortion plot.
The music producer tells TMZ that the same issue has been arising since 1998. He has no problem taking care of his kids (who he’s even put on his reality show) but he does have a problem with being “extorted.”
In the video, Stevie states: “I think I have a pretty great grasp on it. I have great attorneys. We got a hold on it. You know? It’s just a little blown out of proportion but we’re gonna handle it.”
The Bad Boy affiliate explains that the children in question live with him most of the time. One is a basketball star and the other is a “spoiled singer.”
If you watch “Leave It To Stevie” or “LHHATL” you’d know about his daughters Savannah Jordan and Sade Jordan. The siblings infamously confronted Stevie’s baby mama, Joseline Hernandez, in an explosive episode.
The father has four other children; however, he may be welcoming one more.
A woman that goes by the name of Mizjelly took to Instagram to say that she was four weeks pregnant with Stevie’s child.
Under a promotional video for the upcoming season of “Leave It To Stevie,” the woman wrote: “They round here advertising this n****, they need to advertise the face that Stevie J has a baby otw and is running from his responsibility!!!!!!”
The 46-year-old has yet to address the claims made by the woman but it wouldn’t be a surprise if this was a part of a storyline for one of his reality shows.
Do you think Stevie J deserves to serve time for unpaid child support? Do you think this woman is really pregnant with his child?
