Stevie J due in court for allegedly not paying child support

Stevie J of "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" fame is facing legal trouble. On Feb. 22, The Urban Daily reported that Steven Jordan aka Stevie J has been served a subpoena for failing to pay child support.

Carol Bennett is suing Stevie J for unpaid child support to the tune of $1.28 million. She filed suit in October 2013 and contends that Stevie J has done nothing to rectify the amount of support owed to her. Further, Bennett claims that Stevie J is hiding his money in the businesses that he owns and using other means to make it look like he makes less than he actually does.

According to a Radar Online report, Stevie must report on all his income, provide pay stubs as well as copies of his most recent tax returns. Failure to appear at his Feb. 25 court date and to provide this information could result in jail time. Bennett's rep Sibrena Stowe de Fernandez told Radar, "Make no mistake; this obligation has not been paid, but increases at the rate of $8,550 per month."

Ironically, Stevie J was served the subpoena at his new business venture with Benzino, the Sleazy & Zino Bistro & Bar. If Stevie does not take care of the child support issue with Carol Bennett, assets from his acting income, music royalties and even profits from his new restaurant can be seized to pay the debt.
