*“Love & Hip Hop” star Stevie J. was served with a subpoena on Feb. 13 to appear in a New York family court for unpaid child support to the mother of his two children, Carol Bennett.
According to the paperwork uncovered by Radar Online, Stevie — real name Steven Jordan — must appear in court on Feb. 25 because he has “failed to obey the support order dated January 10, 2012.”
“This subpoena requires Steve J’s appearance or an arrest warrant can be issued by the State of New York,” Bennett’s rep, Sibrena Stowe de Fernandez, told Radar.
*Have you been feenin’ for some news about “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta?”
Well, if so, we’ve got what you’re looking for. It seems that what’s being described as a “massive brawl” jumped off that left some of the show’s stars injured. To what extent, we don’t know at this time.
*Stevie J is leading a complicated life.
And legal matters don’t help as the music producer finds himself at the center of a child support case brought on by his baby mama Antoinette.
The thing is the lawsuit came as a total surprise to Stevie J, who admitted to hanging out with Antoinette days before she filed papers to claim unpaid child support.

*Uh oh, it looks like the hammer’s ’bout to fall on Stevie J and his baby mama is the one holding the tool.
A press release sent to EUR this morning says that Carol Antoinette Bennett will reveal that New York State dropped the ball on arresting & recovering $1.29 Million in child support from Bad Boy Recording artist and VH1 star Stevie J
Tomorrow, October 31, Bennett will hold a press conference at 11:30am in Manhattan to expose the facts surrounding the case with ex-fianeé, VH1 reality star (“Love & Hip Hop Atlanta”) and Grammy Award winner, Steve A. Jordan-also known as Stevie J. Jordan currently owes $1.28 million dollars, not including interest, in unpaid child support to two custodial parents.
Bennett, a former music executive and custodial parent to 2 children, is owed $1,051,841.70 according to the New York City Office of Child Support Enforcement. Ms. Bennett has contracted Project Child Support, an organization spearheaded by Kai D. Patterson who is the CEO of Bounty Alert and founder of the Custodial Support Foundation to uncover and collect Steve Jordan’s assets, including any and all companies that may be used as a financial shelter. This case has been deemed historical.
According to a November 5, 2012 story from source Examiner.com: “Deadbeat dads and moms represent about 49% out the moneys owed to the federal government for subsidy programs like welfare to kids….” The story continues and says, “Sadly only about 60% of deadbeat parents pay up, which costs taxpayers billions.” The challenge is for government agencies to increase enforcements and incentives for helping identify offenders.” This is a national problem and a financial burden to the federal government and contributes to the United States deficit.
Under the 1992 Child Support Recovery Act, it is a crime to leave a state owing more than 10,000 in unpaid child support arrears for more than 2 years. The press release claims Jordan owed more than 20 times that when he left New York to live in the state of Georgia.
We can only wonder if this bit of drama will be captured by the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” cameras?
*”Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” couple Stevie J and Joseline have been talking about starting a family for a while and now its only a matter of when.
Fans have been asking if the two of them are with child, or looking to have one any time soon; and have been patiently waiting for a definitive answer.
Stevie J is always known for dancing around the subject, but at the recent BET Hip Hop Awards, reporters asked the producer/reality star when we can expect to see them produce a few bundles of joy.
“In a few years. I have to work. Stevie keeps saying like two years. I say more like five,” Joseline told HipHollywood.com.
Stevie J on the other hand is anxious to have his new bride pop out a few kids so that she can quickly get back to her curvacious figure. “Like a year, so that thing could pop back. I don’t want to wait until [she's] too old.”
