You sure about that?
“Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” star Stevie J was arrested for owing over $1 million in child support.
According to TMZ, the producer had a court order to pay $6,000 per month back in 1999 for two children he had with then girlfriend, but that was then raised to $8,500. He stopped paying all together in 2001, and now owes a total $1,107,412.
Back in 2013, we spoke to his children’s mother, Carol Bennett, where she explained just how real it got between her and Stevie.
My kids are 14 and 16. He has not made a voluntary payment in years. There’s a court order in place to pay x amount per month. If you don’t pay that, even if you can come close, it technically didn’t occur. He’s missed 168 payments. The reason why, this (is) my own speculation, because he’s been able to get away with it, why not keep doing it? Where’s the enforcement at? Okay, he doesn’t have a passport. He still can live, he’s just not going out of the country. It’s just being negligent and not taking on responsibility for your kids, but he doesn’t mind doing it for any other women.
Let’s see how this all unfolds…
