Love Like This?: Singer Faith Evans Reportedly Arrested for Attacking Husband Stevie J.

“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” reality star and R&B songstress Faith Evans reportedly was arrested last week for attacking her husband and fellow reality star Stevie J.

Evans was arrested around 1 a.m. on a unspecified date after law enforcement was called to the couple’s Los Angeles-area home, TMZ is reporting, citing unidentified law enforcement sources. Reportedly, Stevie, who was born Steven Aaron Jordan, and Evans got into a quarrel that turned violent. 

According to the outlet, when law enforcement arrived at the scene Stevie’s face was covered in visible marks and scratches.

While it’s unclear what started the supposed argument, Evans reportedly was arrested and booked for felony domestic violence, bonding out of jail later that day. 

This isn’t the first time that reports about Stevie and Evans’ rocky marriage have made the news. 

A TMZ cameraman followed the couple leaving the Essence Festival in New Orleans last June. He asked them if there was trouble in their marriage after they unfollowed each other on social media. 

“You can’t believe everything that you hear,” Evans responded. 

Also, Stevie sent several tweets that led to rumors of an unstable marriage on June 24, 2019, including, “Drunk people always speak their truth,” “One’s insecurities can damage them,” and “All that glitters ain’t gold.”

However, in July 2019, the couple celebrated their first anniversary in the Caribbean.

They shared photos and videos of themselves enjoying a boat ride and lounging on a beach. Stevie also posted a tribute video to Evans following his back-to-back tweets. 

“Mrs. Faith Renee Jordan – You’ve given me new eyes, a new perspective about love & I couldn’t imagine life without you, this is forever,” he wrote. “I love you, #Mrs. J#HappyAnniversaryMrsJ #Dajordans.” 

The two wed in Las Vegas, Nevada, in July 2018, saying their “I dos” in a hotel room.

Before marrying Evans, Stevie was in a long-term relationship with former “LHHATL” and current “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” reality diva Joseline Hernandez, with the two even claiming to be married in 2016, which wasn’t true. The two share a 3-year-old daughter, Bonnie Bella Jordan. 

Evans was previously married to legendary MC Biggie Smalls in 1994 and music executive Todd Russaw in 1997. 

Neither Stevie or Evans has commented on the recent news of the alleged domestic violence incident.
