“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Stevie J was arrested this morning for failing to pay over $1 million in child support. Here’s the story about why the dad of five landed behind bars:
He and his live-in GF 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 video). He’ll probably bail out soon but then has to face criminal charges in NYC. (Source).
