Stevie J’s $1 million child support case

Music artists and celebrities typically live better than many other residents in Orange County, California. Despite this, many controversies still surround celebrities regarding missed child support payments. Such is the case for rapper Stevie J, who has been accused of failing to pay child support.

Stevie J recently made the headlines not because of another album or music single but because of a continuing family law issue. According to the report, the star of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta has failed to fulfill his financial obligations to his son and daughter. He reportedly owes more than $1 million in unpaid child support.

Steven Jordan, the rapper’s legal name, was taken into custody on charges of failure to pay child support. The warrant stated that Jordan owes $1.1 million in child support for his two teenage children from March 2001 through last June. His children live with his ex-partner in another state.

Stevie J recently went to federal court to face the unpaid child support charges and pleaded not guilty to the charges. The federal judge questioned why the prosecution is trying to bring this case in front of a federal court. The Assistant United States Attorney contested that Stevie J’s federal charge is warranted because the amount of child support involved is very high. The child support case was never successfully settled in family court.

Delinquent payments of child support are treated very seriously in every state, including in California. Child support is important for the well-being of a child because it supports everyday expenses, health care and school costs. Missing a child support payment can greatly impact a child’s life in many ways. A parent who fails to fulfill his or her child support obligation with a good excuse should be held accountable in some way.
