Joseline Hernandez learned that she lost custody of her daughter, Bonnie Bella, while participating in Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition. The cameras were rolling as the celebrity mom broke down upon hearing about a judge’s order that she let Bonnie live with her father, Stevie J, for 30 days.
“They gave him custody,” Joseline told her boyfriend, DJ Ballistic, in an upcoming episode. The celebrity mom learned of the judge’s decision via telephone.
“It’s being told to me that I have to let my daughter go with her father because my baby daddy is trying to take custody,” Joseline said during an interview segment, which further explained the scene. “I feel like my life is just falling apart,” she added.
Hernandez was visibly bewildered by the judge’s decision to let Bonnie Bella live with her father. Stevie J filed court documents last year after Joseline missed a trade-off, which led to him missing out on quality time spent with their daughter.
Joseline explained through her lawyer that the mixup was due to a scheduling conflict. Stevie, however, thought Bonnie’s mother was intentionally trying to keep him away from their daughter. A judge saw things Stevie’s way and awarded him temporary custody of Bonnie Bella.
“I don’t know what to do,” Joseline said during the scene. “That’s my baby,” the Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition told Dr. Ish. “I don’t know what to do!”
Dr. Ish assured Joseline that “there is no judge on this planet who wants to take a kid away from a mom who is fit. You are not an unfit mother,” he added. Joseline Hernandez appeared more confident that everything would work out during the confessional segment of the episode.
“I was really afraid to lose my kid,” the celebrity mom told viewers. “‘Cause at the end of the day I gotta keep pushing,” she added. “I gotta focus, get my sh*t together.”
