*Stevie J. of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” has pleaded not guilty after he was indicted on criminal charges in his long-running child support case.
The 43-year-old reality star, who has a total of six children, has endured a lengthy court battle with his ex-girlfriend Carol Bennett over allegations he has failed to pay her more than $1 million over the years for their young son and daughter.
Stevie J, real name Steven Jordan, is now facing a possible two years in jail after authorities took the case to federal court, and he pleaded not guilty to charges of failure to pay child support at a hearing in New York on Tuesday.
After the case, he told TMZ: “Am I paying child support? I just left the kids in Philly my kids can go through a check really quick… at the end of the day, my son wrote the judge a letter. I take great care of my children, all of ’em… Last time I was with you, you saw me (with them)… Those are the two kids they say I don’t take care of, supposedly, but at the end of the day, we’ll let them have their day, every dog get their day, I’m gonna wait for mine in court.”
