Latin legend Stevie B just pled guilty to owing $420,000 in unpaid child support -- but he has promised the court ... he's gonna do his damnedest to pay it off.

Stevie -- real name Steven Bernard Hill -- was arrested outside his concert in Massachusetts this weekend for owing the enormous sum to his baby mama.

Stevie was arraigned in court this morning -- and according to court sources, he promised to pay $921.25 a week in child support, and an additional $500 a month toward his arrears.

Stevie B is still in custody -- and must pay a $10,000 lump sum toward the $420,000 balance in order to get out of jail.

Stevie's lawyer tells TMZ, "This was an unfortunate misunderstanding and Stevie B is a wonderful and loving father and caring husband." He's due back in court on November 18th.

Here is a guy that is fully cooperative, and paying whatever his baby mama perceives that she is owed DESPITE the fact that he said he has paperwork to prove that he's paid all along. This is an example of a jaded ex trying to get more money. PERIOD. His lawyer Justin Nadeau of Portsmouth will take care of this. Justin is a BIG GUN in this area and we'll see a positive outcome for both parties.

Funny how all of these "has beens" are dead beat dads!
My friend has a daughter with Father MC aka Fambody and he also owes about 400k in back child support for his daughter.
AND has the nerve to keep having babies with everyone and not supporting them.
Father MC, Fambody, or whatever you want to call yourself nowadays- please take care of your many kids or please stop having them. I think you have about 15 now with all different mothers!!!

All those years and all those shows in clubs (and you're still touring) and you forgot to pay support for your children? In the amount of close to 1/2 a million?!

Stevie, you're a douchebag!

And for the record...."Diamond Girl" was a track sung and performed by "Nice N'Wild", not Stevie "D" (Deadbeat).
