I'm not so sure she is the first lady of bad boy records unless Diddy had another label before bad boy recordsm because the first lady was Mary J Blige and Faith joined later; that why Mary and Diddy friendship broke up because Faith came on the scene and Diddy was giving her all the attention. That said, Mary has since made up up Diddy and she admitted it was jealousy and she gives credit to Diddy for helping her with her career...what the 411?

Faith (A Jersey Girl) doesn't need anyone to bail her out. She has plenty of money thanks to her husband's untimely death.

it don't matter how many grammies she got, the point is she should not be driving around drunk.Besides when she had biggie, she was sleeping around on him, she didn't love him.

@DJ Smoke, the law is not tough enough on DUIs, anybody can pay fines.
I do believe everyone make mistakes, but when you have 4 kids at home and you're out drinking and driving, what kind of example is she setting for her kids and the young generation filling our shoes in the future?
All of you defending Faith, would you be defending her in case she smashed into your car and killed on of your loved ones? I think not.
I believe in tough love, not sympathy. Trust me, its not jealousy. I don't envy anyone who can't seem to get it together at 37 years old with 4 kids. It ain't about the money, but the quality of life.

So many dumb and misinformed ppl always got something negative to say. If u don't know who Faith Evans is then u must been living under a rock..So stop asking who she is and just google her IDIOTS!. No Mary J. Blige never signed to Badboy label..Puff was just her manager. Faith was signed as the First Lady. We don't know the details of what happen SO STOP PASSING JUDGEMENTS. Some of ya'll are just idiots. Faith Good luck to you and can't wait to hear your new music in October.

they said it was alleged? don't they have the test to check her level? Come on, this is shady. And why are people putting her down. Almost ever star, singer, rapper have been pulled over for drunk driving. Big deal!
She wasn't immature because her kids were not their. she was having drinks like all of adults do.
Mind your "F'in" business. I am not even a fan of hers, but people pay too much attention to others business it says you have no life of your own.
