Stevie J. Misses Child Support Hearing — Will He Be Arrested?
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Stevie J. has been making headlines thanks to the $1.2 million in back child support her reportedly owes. We recently learned that Stevie J. was at risk of going to jail if he missed his February 25 child support hearing in New York. Unfortunately, the “hitmaker” didn’t make his appearance which can mean jail time and even garnishment!
According to The Source, Stevie’s assets may be in danger of being seized in order to pay what he owes. Project Child Support, working on behalf of Stevie’s ex (and mother of two of his children), Carol Bennett released the following statement:
“Each time Mr. Jordan fails to appear, he enables Project Child Support to request what we need to eventually seize his assets to pay the arrears and fees if he is unwilling to do so, without his opposition. Now that we can issue subpoenas through a court order, we will aggressively begin to issue subpoenas prior to our next scheduled court date.”
This of course means that they can now look into how much money Steebie’s earning from his new lounge, Sleazy & Zino (which he co-owns with co-star, Benzino), as well as his earnings from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.
Stevie has one more chance to make his case at New York State Family Court of Manhattan on April 23, 2014.
