Stevie J was flattened outside a North Carolina nightclub ... and despite protestations he left unscathed, the video tells a very different story.
The brawl with Stevie went down outside Charlotte's Empire Lounge. There's a report things got so heated Stevie's van got shot up, but he insists that's not the case.
The "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star says the incident was triggered by club security who roughed up a patron. Stevie says since he was hosting the event, the patron thought he was responsible, so when Stevie left the club the guy and his posse jumped him.
While Stevie insists he left unscathed, his pal and blogger FreddyO left with a gash in his head.
