Faith Evans has found herself in trouble once again on account of a domestic abuse incident involving her husband, Stevie J. Hot New Hip Hop reported today that Faith reportedly attacked her man during an argument.
TMZ was the first to report that the police responded to a domestic dispute at their home in Los Angeles, but it’s not currently known what started the argument. When the police arrived at the scene, they claim they noticed that Stevie had visible marks and lacerations on his face.
Around 1:00 in the morning, Faith Evans was taken into police custody, although, she was released just a few hours later. According to Hot New Hip Hop, Faith Evans and Stevie J have gotten into heated exchanges a number of times over the last few years.
Hot New Hip Hop claims that near the ending of last year, Stevie dropped a number of tweets on his social media account in which he insinuated she was cheating on him. Paraphrasing his comments, Stevie said that he discovered that it wasn’t possible for a woman to be faithful.

Stevie J went on to say that being a “stand-up guy” wouldn’t get you anywhere except as the victim of infidelity. He added, “trust no b*tch.” Later, Stevie J insisted that the tweets were not created by him, and instead, were the result of a hacking.
He added that his wife was his best friend and also the “love” of his life. That same year, rumors of separation began circulating following a series of tweets from Stevie in addition to an appearence at the Essence Festival in New Orleans.
TMZ caught up with the couple in New Orleans around that time and asked them if everything was going alright between them. Stevie kissed her on the cheek and asked the reporters “what it looked like?”
When asked about the relationship controversy, Faith explained that one can’t believe everything they hear. A few years prior to rumors of their romance’s trouble, Stevie J bragged about how often they slept together.
