EXCLUSIVE | 'Growing Up Hip Hop' stars Savannah Jordan and Stevie Jr on 'relationship' with father Stevie J
When you run hectic work schedules, at times it is tough to see make time for relationships. Stevie J is a legend in his own right. Aside from being a father to six grown-ups, the American DJ and record producer, spends time being a reality TV star.
'Growing Up Hip Hop' has given him and his co-stars a chance to share their two cents and present the uncut versions of themselves to the world. He did that beautifully and while at it, he spent quality time with his and ex Carol Antoinette Bennett's kids Savannah Jordan and Stevie Jr. In an interview with MEAWW, the siblings opened up about the kind of relationship they share with their otherwise busy, globe-trotting father.
While Savannah is focused on health and fitness, Stevie Jr produces music and plays basketball, a sport that no one imagined he would take up given what his father has been into. But the 22-year-old is trying his best to strike a balance and achieve as much as he can from the two chosen fields. "Oh, I'm working out, I'm doing yoga. I'm literally working on myself as a person, so, yeah. And I'm focusing on my finances. So whether that's me in the bank trying to get my taxes or working on my credit, I'm grown now. So that's the thing that I have to work on as a grown being. So that's what I'm doing," Savannah revealed.
Meanwhile, the sister has been clashing over money with father Stevie. However, when we asked her about it, she denied the possibility saying: "I don't think we were clashing about money. I think it's more he's in my business. That's what we get. It's not a clash or disagreement at all because the only person that is having any problems at all with that money is him. I'm totally straightened. Forward and together with all of my finances."
Elaborating on the father-child relationship, Stevie added that his father has been around for them and that he was extremely supportive. "Well, he came to some of my basketball games. He was supportive when he could."
"It's pretty much done the same. We've been doing this for multiple years, I guess nothing's really changed," Stevie concluded.
