Both Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez have been accused of doing some pretty hard drugs in the past. While their drug use has never been confirmed, it appears to be a sore subject for the troubled couple. According to TMZ, Benzino made a joke about the duo using drugs at the recently taped “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” reunion and a massive fight broke out.
Witnesses are saying that Stevie jumped in Benzino’s face immediately after the joke was made, but security quickly intervened. While all of the attention was focused on the former friends, Joseline reportedly snuck up on Benzino’s fiancée, Althea Heart, and attacked her. That wasn’t the only brawl though. We also hear that there was an altercation involving Wacka Flocka’s fiancée, Tammy Rivera, and his mother, Debra Antney. Witnesses did not specify who Tammy and Deb were beefing with, but we’re guessing that it was probably Joseline, who seems to be fighting with just about everyone this season. Mimi Faust also reportedly got in on some of the violent action and sources claim that a security guard was also hit in the face during all of the fighting.
Police officers and paramedics were eventually called to the scene and at least three people were treated, witnesses say. Of course, the entire altercation was reportedly captured by VH1 cameras. However, we’ll likely only see a snippet of it when the reunion airs. Yesterday, we predicted that the reunion would be rather explosive after Stevie shared a nude photo of Althea on Twitter.
Watch a brief clip from the brawl below.

Stevie J took his feud with Benzino and his fiancee, Althea Heart, a step further last night when he shared a nude photo of Althea on Twitter. In the photo, a nude Althea can be seen in a bathtub leaning over the edge and looking up at a man who is standing in front of her.
“Lettuce anyone?” Stevie wrote in the tweet.

While Stevie tried to lead folks to believe that the man in the photo was him, Althea quickly responded stating that it’s actually Benzino who is in the photo.
“That’s me and Zino. What you want tickets??” the singer questioned.
“No, I already been to the zoo,” Stevie responded.
The real question should be how did the photo find it’s way to the Internet and end up in Stevie’s possession. We can only imagine what the reunion show will be like.

Well, some drama has definitely been played out on a public platform today, as Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez just had a public spat on Twitter. Earlier this week there was speculation that they had split, as their Love and Hip Hop Atlanta co-star, Benzino, put Hernandez on blast for doing his friend dirty. He said this yesterday in an Instagram post that he went on to delete:
“So the @baddestputa1 is still threatening #thi and still clowning me on #lhhatl but I noticed she was not at the awards with sleaze hmmmmm I wonder what happened, she S**TS ON EVERYBODY and tries to EXPOSE them WELL GUESS WHAT it’s her time to be EXPOSED stay tuned #lhhatl.
“I noticed @hitmanstevieJ_1 erased all pics of him and @thebaddestputa in Cali #betawards weekend hmmmm I wonder what LIL MISS INNOCENT DID? #staytuned #lhhatl.”
Benzino reportedly also jumped in the comment section of one of Hernandez’s posts to name off different men she cheated on Stevie J with, including Kevin Durant of all people. As for what Stevie J had to say about all this, on Twitter, he spoke as though he was a little heartbroken:
And just this morning the producer put his lady on blast:
Hernandez remained pretty quiet through all this, but this morning she decided to spaz out on Twitter. She posted messages talking about all the men she claimed to have had relations with, with while with Stevie, including Nelly and Drake (yeah right), and posted text messages between herself and the likes of Kevin Durant and Rick Ross. She also claimed to have slept with their driver, NBA star James Harden, given cunnilingus to women at the strip club (there were pictures) and had sex with some of Stevie’s friends. A lot of the messages (especially the images) were a little too explicit to share here, but she hasn’t taken them down yet from her Twitter page. And what is PG (I guess) that I can share is this:
Seeing as how Benzino and Stevie J keep saying “stay tuned,” I’m thinking this is all a big stunt for the reality show, and in a way, I also think Hernandez is just joking about this list of men she’s been with, and just talking crazy out of spite. But then again, it wouldn’t be the first time these people did the absolute most for VH1. But what do you think?
Earlier this month, we told you that Steven “Stevie J” Jordan had been arrested for allegedly owing over $1 million in child support to ex-girlfriend, Carol Bennett. The reality star was quickly released on $25,000 bond, but it appears that his short-lived prison stint uncovered another BIG problem. According to the New York Daily News, the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star tested positive for marijuana and cocaine. As a result, the reality TV personality was reportedly ordered to undergo pretrial drug treatment by a New York judge yesterday.
Sadly, this wouldn’t be the first time that the 42-year-old father has been accused of substance abuse. Back in March, rumors of possible drug use began to circulate after his rumored wife Joseline Hernandez shared a photograph in which it looked like a white powdery substance had accumulated around the producer’s nostrils. However, it was never actually confirmed whether or not that was actual powder on Stevie’s nose or just a glare from the camera. Whatever the case, hopefully this program will equip Stevie with the help he needs.
So far, Stevie’s representatives have not returned requests for comment.

You know things are really bad when the courts need to step in and take your money to pay what you owe. Just ask DMX. A judge recently found in favor of his ex-wife Tashera Simmons’ petition to collect child support. Apparently he stopped helping out once they split. Because of this, Mr. Earl Simmons will see up to $15,000 each month leaving his pockets. Take a look at 10 celebrities who also have seen their wages garnished and the ones who came very close.
While Stevie J is known for many things these days that aren’t the most positive (including slacking on paying child support, acting the fool on reality TV and being a habitual cheater), his work in music is something he can look back on with pride. He’s behind a slew of classic jams, as he was one of the key in-house producers and writers for Bad Boy Entertainment in the ’90s. What jams you say? Why, take a look…
“Friend Of Mine” by Kelly Price
Stevie J was co-writer and co-producer of this popular track about a downtrodden woman recounting the pain of a trifling friend who stole her man by hopping in the sack with him. The award-winning song went all the way to the top of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and is one of Price’s biggest hits (for songs she was the main performer on).
Stevie J may have been released from jail last week, but his problems in regard to his $1.2 million child support tab appear to be worsening. According to TMZ, the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star was recently issued notice that New York State now has the power to seize any property that he owns to sell it to pay off the pricey bill.
Unsurprisingly, court documents suggest that Stevie is actually well aware of the consequences that come along with his failure to pay child support. The state says that they sent four notifications to the VH1 star between 2011 and 2013. It’s being speculated that he ignored all of them. His financial woes don’t end there though. He’s also in hot water with the IRS. According to reports, there are five income tax liens against him, totaling to a whopping $371,000.
As you may recall, Stevie was recently videotaped being apprehended by Georgia police from his home for failing to pay ex-girlfriend, Carol Bennett, child support for their two children since 2001. He was later released on $25,000 bond. Stevie had better get it together and quickly!
Yesterday, footage surfaced of Stevie J being arrested and carted off to prison by Georgia police for owing over $1 million in child support. According to the Associated Press, Stevie was released earlier today from the Fulton County Jail on $25,000 bond. Shortly after his release, he told reporters it “feels great” to be home.
Of course, his legal troubles are far from over. He has been ordered to appear in court in the Southern District of New York. As you may recall, news of Stevie’s child hefty child support balance has been a headline favorite for quite some time now. Last winter, Carol Bennett, who has two children by Stevie, spoke out against the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star, alleging that he hasn’t made a child support payment in nearly 13 years.
“This has been an ongoing situation. We’ve actually been to court twice. The thing is I haven’t been the one pushing to go to court,” Carol alleged. “He’s tried to go to court to not pay anything and has been denied twice. So basically, I’ve just been feeling that the system has been failing me and there’s not much I can do,” she continued.
“My kids are in high school. My daughter just started high school so we’re preparing for college. It’s time for saving. We have to make sure that they’re not just prepared academically. We have to make sure they’re prepared financially as well. We had an agreement in the child support order that he would provide insurance. But nothing [has] been covered by Stevie for the last twelve or thirteen years.”
According to U.S. Attorney Preet Bahara, the Grammy-winning producer failed to pay child support for two of his children, even back when he was racking in $27,000 per month. Stevie’s attorney Daniel Meachum is calling the allegations being made against his client “preposterous.” It’s going to be very interesting to see how this all unfolds.
According to TMZ, Stevie J just learned the hard way that failing to financially provide for your children could get you thrown in jail.
Despite the big house he lives in on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and the flashy car keys he throws at folks on the show, the songwriter and producer has failed to pay child support for two of his children, which he had with ex-girlfriend Carol Antoinette Bennett, and reportedly stopped paying to support them in 2001. The child support asked of him for those two children started at $6,600 in 1999, an eventually increased to $8,500. After all these years of forgoing what he owes, Stevie J’s back child support bill is at $1,107, 412. Wow.
TMZ has obtained video of the reality star getting picked up by police and taken to jail in Georgia. He will face criminal charges in NYC for not paying what he owes.
We have been keeping up with this story since last year. We recently told you that Project Child Support has been helping Bennett by subpoenaing people in the singer’s life, including Joseline Hernandez, to get info on his finances and more, as he has failed to show up to hearings at Family Court in NYC. Mimi Faust has also said to us in an exclusive interview that Stevie J does not help her with their daughter, Eva.
When speaking on his child support issues, Stevie J seemed to be in denial that there was an issue:
“I’ve just been seeing a lot in the press. I didn’t know I had an issue.
We were in Philly just hanging out with my kids. I had a show in Philly. We chillin’, we at the mall with the kids. Me, wife, even baby momma was there, Ms. Bennett. But you know, it’s all good. But then I see I owe a million and some change!
It’s like everybody want their day in the sun, everybody wants to be hot. I talk to my kids every day on Facetime, and I see ‘em and I’m like, ‘What’s going on Superstar?’ ‘Ain’t nothin, everything good.’ Everything’s good? What’s this then? Everybody got their motives, you never know what’s on people’s minds.”
Clearly he was faking the funk…
Check out the exclusive video from TMZ of Stevie J being taken by the authorities below:
It’s pretty much par for the course that when one relationship ends, inevitably, both parties start speaking negatively about one another. Us regular folks may do it with our girlfriends or, God forbid, on social media. But when you’re a reality television star all that word vomit comes out in interviews. And to be fair, it’s mostly the fault of the journalists and media members who ask some pretty invasive questions. But as we learned from our own chat with Mimi, she’s not squeamish about the tough questions. Nothing is off the table for her.
And that certainly was the case when she sat down with Futra Media Group. Mimi told the interviewer, she could ask her anything and she certainly took her up on that offer.
Things started off innocently enough when the woman asked Mimi how she and Nikko met. She said that the two met years ago in LA and then they met again last year at the Video Music Awards. But the conversation got juicy when Mimi started to explain what she likes about Nikko. “He’s completely different from what I was dealing with. Completely. In every aspect.”
Then jumping right in, the interviewer asked Mimi, of the two men, who has the biggest penis. Mimi kept it real saying “…they are both well endowed. I’ve been very fortunate in that department. I’ve been very lucky.”
And even though the equipment is similar, she prefers Nikko’s approach to Stevie’s because her ex and father of her child was a little too rude in the sheets.
“He’s very vulgar and to me, for my liking I don’t know if some other women might like this, but he talks to much and is too rude in the bed. I don’t like to be called a b*tch, hoe and a slut every time I have sex. I don’t enjoy that. He’s like ‘You f***ing whore! You slut!’ I can’t.’ Just shut up, you’re drying everything up down there.”
I mean I know some women are into that. But I’d argue that most aren’t. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Stevie J has some unresolved mommy issues. The psychiatrist on the show brought that out on the show when both Stevie and Mimi revealed they pretty much grew up motherless. Dude doesn’t respect women. And I’m not just talking about the dirty talk during sex. The way he lives his life is a testament to that. I just cannot, for the life of me, understand why Mimi dealt with this man for so long.
