NY Post reports,
Reality TV star and music producer Steven “Stevie J” Jordan will be shipped to an inpatient drug program after flunking ten drug tests for coke and weed while out on bail on a child support case, Manhattan prosecutors said Tuesday.
Jordan was busted in Atlanta in June for failing to pay $1.1 million in court-ordered child support payment for a boy, 17, and girl, 15, who live with their mother in Pennsylvania.
The “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” cast member and Grammy winner was released on $25,000 bail by a Manhattan federal judge this summer — but has since failed a string of random drug tests mandated by the terms of his release.
The feds said Jordan tested positive for marijuana and cocaine in urine samples 10 times between June and and this month.
Prosecutors demanded that he be placed in a 30-day inpatient rehab center to address his admitted drug abuse problems.
But Jordan’s attorney, Michael Bellinger, argued that his client wouldn’t be able to work while stuck in the center and that his ability to repay his debts would suffer.
“If he’s in inpatient he can’t support his family,” Bellinger argued.
But Judge Andrew Peck imposed the rehab stint — and said Jordan was lucky he didn’t revoke his bail altogether and dump him in the slammer.
“I would be sorely tempted to revoke bail at this stage,” Peck said.
The couple was given the boot Wednesday AM … with no explanation.
Benzino says it’s obvious he and Althea are being blamed for the fight between them and castmates Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J … a brawl that proved irresistible for other cast members.
TMZ reported Althea sued Joseline, claiming she started the fight while she was high on crack.
Producers sided with Joseline, even though other castmates felt Joseline should have gotten the boot.
VH1 wouldn’t comment, but it’s pretty obvious. Joseline’s better TV, and that trumps everything.
Below is the fight that started it all…what do you think??
At the taping of the “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” reunion show a fight broke out between Benzino, his fiancee Althea, Stevie J, Joseline, Debra, Tammy, and Mimi when Benzino cracked a joke about Stevie J and Joseline doing drugs, according to TMZ.
Sources say Stevie jumped up to get in Benzino’s grill, but security guards stopped him. That’s when –according to witnesses — Stevie’s girl Joseline sneak attacked Althea.
After that, all hell broke loose — weaves were torn out in the chaos — and every time security broke up one fight … a different one would spark up between other cast members.
The fighting was between the women — although at least one male security guard took a shot to the face … from one of the chicks.
Cops and paramedics responded — at least three people got treatment and of course the whole thing was caught on camera, I don’t know about you guys but we are ready for the reunion!
After the LHHA episode 12 aired Stevie J “leaked” nude pics of Benzino and his girl Althea. Of course Zeno wasn’t about to let that ride so he proceeded to but Stevie J on blast. Lawd when will it end…but it makes for some good blog reporting hahaha!
Stevie J confirms that he and Joseline are no longer together.
Stevie J said on hit twitter page that his one bad habit was loving people who hurt him and he said regrets trusting a woman. Check out the tweets from the bottom up:
“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Stevie J was just picked by the police from his home for owing, get this, over 1 million dollars in back child support!!
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.
Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Benzino was shot after coming back from his mother’s funeral according to TMZ.
Get this, sources say Benzino was shot by his nephew Gai Scott, adding,
“There has been growing family tension” between the two.
The District Attorney said that the two were driving side by side in separate cars and his nephew allegedly fired shots. He has bee arrested ans charged with assault with intent to murder.
As you can see from the hospital selfie post on Instagram above, Zino is in stable condition and with his boy Stevie J by his side. Hey were us Karlie Red?!?!
Well you knew it was coming, “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s” bar brawl at the opening of Stevie J and Benzino new club “Sleazy & Zino Bistro & Bar.”
According to TMZ, it all stated when Joseline Hernandez got into an argument with someone and supposedly Karlie Redd ended up being knocked out, Momma Dee even got hit in the face with a bottle. Yes the foolishness has begun!
Old school rapper Peter Gunz is giving Stevie J a run for his money on Love & Hip Hop New York. On the show he has a wife and a mistress and twitter tore him a new one. Peter does the ultimate no no and admits the scenes are staged.
Check out what he twitted:
Several cast members were in attendance, including Stevie J, Joseline Hernandez, K.Michelle, Mimi Faust and Erica Dixon, as well as the show’s executive producer, Mona Scott-Young. Check out the photos below! K. Michelle and Mimi even reconciled on stage and embraced each other, exactly how long will that last tune in to the season and see why that happens! Many of the stars were present including Scrappy’s co-star and fiancee Erica Dixon, who confirmed they are still engaged, but Scrappy was MIA when it came to the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” premiere parties in both ATL and NYC last week, wonder why? Well sources report, A warrant has been issued for Scrappy’s arrest in Georgia….all because of some fraudulent pee!
TMZ spoke with Scrappy’s lawyer who isn’t admitting any wrong doing:
We spoke to Scrappy’s lawyer, Mawuli Mel Davis, who tells us Scrappy plans to appear in court on May 16 to address the issue — and says, “It is our hope that the Judge will recall the revocation warrant that is currently pending against Mr. Richardson.”
He adds, “Since Mr. Richardson’s release from jail, he has been reporting to probation as ordered and doing his best to comply with all conditions of probation.”
Reportedly, Scrappy’s going to turn himself in to the police next week….with VH1 cameras in tow. Of course!
Don’t forget to tune in to Love & Hip Hop Atlanta tomorrow, Monday, April 22 at 8 pm on VH1.
