Why are Stevie J and Faith Evans divorcing? Inside couple's marriage after 3 years
Record producer Stevie J has reportedly filed for divorce from his wife Faith Evans, after just 3 years of marriage. The pair tied the knot in a secret Las Vegas wedding back in July 2018. In fact, the wedding took their friends and family by surprise. The couple has had a tumultuous relationship with allegations of extramarital affairs and even domestic violence. In 2020, Faith was arrested on charges of domestic violence after she allegedly attacked her husband. The news of the divorce comes months after he was accused of cheating on Evans with his ex Joseline Hernandez in the past.
Stevie and Faith do not share any children, but Stevie has six children while Faith has four kids from their previous relationships. It is also unclear at the moment whether they had signed a prenup and how their assets will be divided. While Faith Evans, who is a singer-songwriter, has an estimated net worth of $3 Million, Grammy-winning producer Stevie J's net worth is believed to be around $5 Million.
Around the time of their first anniversary in 2019, TMZ had reported that the couple's marriage had hit a rocky patch. However, at that time both Stevie and Faith rubbished the rumors and asserted that everything was okay between them. This would the second divorce for Evans, while it is the first divorce for Stevie J.
The duo was linked romantically for the first time way back in the early 1990s, when Stevie J was working with Faith's former husband The Notorious B.I.G. Faith was married to rapper The Notorious B.I.G for three years from 1994, till his tragic murder in 1997. She later got married to record executive Todd Russaw and was together with him for 13 years till 2011. She then reunited with Stevie once again but dumped him over a cheating scandal, before getting married to him.
In April 2021, Stevie J's ex Joseline Hernandez spoke out against Faith Evans, snubbing her for implying that Stevie was two-timing with both of them around 2016. Joseline announced that she hasn't had any romantic relationship with her baby daddy- Stevie J in the past four years, and shared that she was in a happy relationship with her DJ boyfriend Balistic Beats. "This old b**** needs to keep the bricks out her way. I ain't been with that man in 4 years. I'm happily with @balisticbeats," she commented.
Joseline then proceeded to point out how every time one of her TV shows is about to drop, Faith Evans made it a point to slander her. "Every time my TV shows bout to drop this ol wore down melted b**** got something to say to stay relevant." She also accused Faith of being a 'cheater'. "B**** you a h*e your own husband told me and my husband last week you cheated on him with young n***** and you do all the time," the 'Love & Hip Hop' star shared.
Joseline even went to the extreme extent as she accused Faith's son of nearly killing her daughter Bonnie. "Now talk about your crazy a** kid that almost killed Bonnie under your watch. I have your husband (Stevie J) on recording begging for my forgiveness cause Bonnie could have gotten killed by that animal you call son. That's why she's never been under your care since. B**** go make a song." She ended her fiery rant for revealing that Faith had been with Stevie J way before Joseline even began seeing him and eventually dumping him. "And FYI you been sucking stevie d*** for years ejem before I dropped his sorry a**. Bye h*e. And go Watch my 3 TV shows that's are currently playing on national TV and streaming Networks."
