'Love & Hip Hop' Star Stevie J

Busted for Owing

A Million Bucks in Child Support

EXCLUSIVE

Stevie J Arrested
"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Stevie J just learned a hard lesson about being a baby daddy ... you rack up a million-dollar child support debt and you go directly to jail.

Here's what landed Stevie J behind bars.  He and his live-in GF had a kid in '97 and '98.  In '99 Stevie was ordered to pay around $6,600 a month in child support, which eventually was raised to $8500K.

According to the criminal complaint, Stevie J stopped paying in 2001 -- he's never paid a cent since then.  So now the tab is a whopping $1,107,412.

Cops nabbed Stevie J in Georgia (check out the video).  He'll probably bail out soon but then has to face criminal charges in NYC.

wow, all the bragging this man has done on t.v, all the flaunting of cars, homes, women etc & the guys just another deadbeat dad. Paying childsupport is a part of parenting. This man thinks just because he spends a few hours with his kids here & there that he is a dad & all is good. However financially supporting your children also is a factor in parenting. There are a few simple solutions for not going to jail & being a embarrassment to the music industry, your children, family etc, pay up on your child support or use protection idiot!

Way back in the early 70's my father worked and earned about $1000 a month; my mother didn't have a job; she was always at home for us four children. I cannot remember that any of us had a feeling of poverty.
And this child (I assume ONE child) needs $8500 a month?? I agree that prices have increased, but $8500 a month? Give me a break!

"Am I suppose to know these rappers/hiphop artists?"

Umm If you are going to make that statement make sure you know what your talking about. First off probably not because he is not a rapper or a hip-hop artists. There is more to the industry, ever heard of producers? Idiot.

Btw IF YOU KNOW BIGGIE, PUFF DADDY MARIAH CAREY FAITH EVANS, BAD BOYS LABEL (notorious big and p.diddy) then you know STEVIE J! U just didnt know it. He He's a producer for BAD BOYS, and most of B.I.G Hits were produced by him. Feel dumb? U may not not kno of him but he's been there all along I suppose

Look bruh be a father to your child, and realize that child support payments DON'T GO AWAY, They build and accrue over time, And if you're not careful you'll be in arrears before you know what hit you.
