Bad news this week for Stevie J. The Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star’s already neck-deep in legal woes and things just got a whole lot serious after he flunked a recent drug test.
Here’s what’s going on, according to TMZ: Stevie’s currently in the midst of figuring out back child support payments (former girlfriend and mother of two of his daughters Carol Bennett claims he owes her more than a million dollars over the course of 14 years).
He reportedly surrendered to those charges in a June 23 court appearance in Manhattan and it all should have gone smoothly. Stevie just had to post $25,000 and then could head on his way. Unfortunately for Stevie, however, he was drug tested back in Atlanta when he was arrested earlier this month on those child support charges. Now the results are finally in and they’re not looking good for the new grandpa.
TMZ claims the reality TV star had weed and coke in his system at the time of the drug test, leading to yesterday’s ruling that Stevie post bail and submit to random drug testing for the foreseeable future. Bummer, man.
As for what Stevie has to say, he tweeted June 24, "FYI - I DID NOT have drugs on me. Weed in my system, presumptuous coke. Probably an old Molly" so take that for what you will. We’re just trying to figure out what made the coke so presumptuous.
