Stevie J. Calls Out $1 Million Child Support Case Ahead of Trial
It looks like Stevie J.’s legal woes aren’t completely over.
The Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star headed to court this past Monday in hopes the $1.1 million child support case, which has plagued him since October 2013, would be over. However, things didn’t work in his favor.
According to Bossip, a judge presiding over the case ordered that it go to trial, leaving the New York native to call “bulls—t.”
In February 2015, the record producer appeared in a New York family court to plead “not guilty” to charges stemming from owed money. Despite feeling the judge was on his side at the time, it seems the star’s application for a “deferred prosecution” was denied.
Despite it all, Stevie said he was pleased to know the children of the mother who is suing him haven’t allowed the case to affect their relationship.
“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,” he said.
Stevie is scheduled to head back to court December 5.
With his request tossed, the judge scheduled a trial for December, and in a chat with Bossip just moments after the hearing, the VH1 celeb maintained he was a good father to all five of his children.
“It went how it went,” he said. “I got some things up my sleeve too. This case is bulls—t.”

He continued, “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. For the record, I provided everything that they needed.”
