Faith Evans and Stevie Jordan elope to Vegas, confirming fan speculations of a secret wedding
Faith and Stevie have history together, having known each other since the 90's, when Faith's late ex-husband, Biggie Smalls was still alive. She confirmed dating rumours in 2017.
Looks like congratulations are in order for Stevie Jordan and Faith Evans... or should we just bust the surprise and call her Faith Jordan already? Because this just in: MTO reported that the two eloped to Las Vegas and got married - just hours before the cutest ever Twitter exchange between the two, which was the first trigger for fans to speculate that the two had tied the knot.
Suddenly the whole Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin suprise engagement seems so bland, doesn't it? Because the 46-year-old Jordan and Biggie Smalls' 45-year-old widow have clearly won the surprise wedding game, and in a very millennial-esque manner, their announcement was a cryptic Twitter message.
And fans being fans, all it took was the music producer tweeting to his now confirmed wife, “I love you Faith Renee Jordan,” and to that she responded with “I love you back Steven Aaron Jordan.” The last name addition was just too blatant to miss, which is why fans being convinced even before confirmation of their wedding arrived, is highly understandable.
As per MTO's report, Stevie and Faith eloped to Vegas in front of just a handful of their friends and family. According to TMZ, the couple had applied for a marriage license on July 17, meaning they have one year to get married before the license expires but judging from the change in name, they aren't keeping things for a later time. As a fan rightly pointed out through Twitter, “He doesn’t have a choice but to do right bc y’all know Faith won’t tolerate the BS. I think he’s ready to be apart of something real. I’m happy for them! Keep unc in line Faith!”
Faith and Stevie's marriage didn't come absolutely out of the blue though, considering their history together. The two had met in the 90s, when Faith was still married to Biggie, and despite rumours of them dating having been around ever since Biggie's death, she only confirmed the rumours back in March 2017, in an interview with 'The Breakfast Club.'
“I never took Stevie serious actually,” Faith told Essence. “I think probably in the last 10 years, I would say, is he trying to flirt? Lets go. But I never saw him like that. I have always had plenty of male friends. Never dated any of them. I was just really cool like that. I think I really should have been a boy or something. But I’m just cool with dudes. I would check on him, just hear if he was going through stuff and find out how to get in touch with him….[I was] Just really sincerely his friend.”
But Stevie's charm eventually worked on her. “I don’t know what made me even finally say okay, but he convinced me, I ain’t even gonna lie,” said Faith. “You know, I’m like, ‘you know I’m not about all the craziness. If I’m going to be in a relationship, it’s gotta be a serious one. You know?’ And I think probably for a few months he definitely went through the convincing and not getting a real response. …He just really convinced me that he really wanted to be in a relationship and convinced me that there was no one else in his life.”
The relationship wasn't all sunshine and rainbows as it happened to fizzle once Faith realized he wasn't a 100 percent committed to her. “He’s not [my man] anymore,” she had said in the interview, adding that she still cared for him. “I still love him; I love him as a friend. I love him but it’s not like I’m in love with him.” Well - clearly things have changed and escalated drastically for the better!
