'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.

I don't know who the hell this person is, but really, $8500 a month for child support? That's just CRAZY!!! So when they were all living together, they were spending $8500 a month on that kid even then? So I would assume the mother is also spending another $8500 on the kid? Ya right, I bet not a penny. Hell I bet not even working ad most of that money really going to her. $1000 for you kid and $7500 for me!

Not that he shouldn't be paying Child support at all as that's also completely wrong.

Stevie J, AKA, Steven Jordan born Buffalo, NY is a Musician, singer, recording producer and songwriter. Give him credit for being successful but as a person who should take responsibility for donating sperm and not being a responsible as a sex partner. The legal system has decided that this is how much is need to support the children. Just because you are a rapper you are not above the law. Before you say, this is because he is a black rapper, "this has nothing to do with that" The issue is children that he fathered.

Who? That sounds like a lot of money. Why the upper case "I" in the word million? Quick typing job on a non-story?

In what world does it take a million dollars to raise a child? Whoever thought up the calculations for child support need to be put in jail.
