"King of Freestyle" Stevie B

Latin dance artist Stevie B was handcuffed and taken off the stage during his concert last night by police in Springfield, MA for owing $420,000 in unpaid child support.

According to a local report, police say Hill was cooperative throughout the arrest and expressed concern he might miss a concert in Providence, RI.

Stevie B, real name Steven Bernard Hill, was big in the 1980s and 1990s. He is probably best known for his song "Because I Love You (The Postman Song)," which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart in December 1990.

He was taken into custody AFTER the show. We were there the whole show and left the event and never saw police anywhere and we were in the front row. That was crazy I had no idea he was a deadbeat Dad.

I used work with Stevie and have known him for many years. I've always known him to be very upstanding when it comes to his family and kids. Amir is 100% correct on this. The truth will come out.
