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.

I think EVERYONE is missing the obvious. Could it be.... Just possible that this is an instance of a "secret LOVE child"?!! I was NOT there, however if he went willingly and Amir and "people" who know him say it's ALL untrue. Then who's to say that it's not about a different child(ren). I'm just sayin.

I think anytime someone's father is thrown in jail over child support, that isn't the right solution.Especially 420,000 dollars, i mean that is 400,000 dollars more than most dads pay.I know money is important on raising a child, but i think the time spent with your child is by far more important than money. What does the mother do to financially support the kids? Lets stop putting fathers in jail over child support period.

Yo ! First and foremost I was freakin harrased by the AG's office for 4,000 of backpay that my son's mother didn't want To begin with. I was the one who had to force the child support down his mom's throat and initiate the whole thing. I am not saying all this for praise but I see it only fit that men should be men and take care of their children. If they didn't escort him off the stage and embarras him then they should have if that's what it takes for him to pay up. And as far as the King of Freestyle, that's a joke. For one his style is not freestyle it is what's known as Funky Melody. We all know where the true Kings and queens originated from " The borrows of new York " The Bronx/Spanish Harlem to be exact. So, if you owe "Man Up and Pay Up" But yes do get a DNA test first.
