Authorities: Stevie J owes $1M child support

By From page B5 | June 11, 2014

NEW YORK — Prosecutors in New York say a cast member on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” has been arrested and charged with failing to pay more than $1 million in child support.

The cast member, Steven Jordan, known as “Stevie J,” is also a Grammy-winning record producer.

He was arrested Monday night and awaiting an Atlanta court appearance Tuesday. The name of his lawyer wasn’t immediately known.

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in Manhattan says Jordan failed to pay the support for two children while earning $27,000 monthly.

Prosecutors say Jordan failed to make a voluntary payment in the first nine months of 2013. At the time, he earned $193,000 on the show and another $100,000 from music royalties.

VH1 didn’t immediately respond to a comment request.
