Stevie J is doing the perp walk. Literally.
Yep, the “Love & Hip Hop: ATL” star just got his butt hauled away to lockdown over not paying child support
Young men the lesson here is clear: You rack up a million-dollar child support debt and you go directly to jail.
Ok, if you’ve been paying any attention to this knucklehead, you know that he’s just been totally defiant about paying the bill. The backstory is that Stevie J and then girlfriend Carol Bennett had a kid in ’97 and ’98. In ’99 Stevie was ordered to pay around $6,600 a month in child support, which eventually was raised to $8500K.
According to the criminal complaint, Stevie J stopped paying in 2001 — he’s never paid a cent since then. So now the tab is a whopping $1,107,412.
Cops nabbed Stevie J in Georgia (check out the TMZ video below). He’ll probably bail out soon but then has to face criminal charges in NYC.
