Many fans are wondering if the long-term friendship of Faith Evans and Stevie J has turned romantic. The rumored couple have been seen together on Instagram during the “Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour.”
Stevie J is a Grammy-winning songwriter and producer who has worked with Faith Evans in the past, which led to a friendship lasting over two decades.
Stevie J is currently battling a child support case and a paternity suit with a pregnant Joseline Hernandez, who insists that the Bad Boy producer is the father.
Adding fuel to the fire, former Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada also suspects that Faith Evans and Stevie J may be more than friends.
During a VH1 Live show, Lozada suggests that they may have had a relationship “back in the day,” and they are rekindling a past relationship.
Faith Evans is known for her Bad Boy era R&B music as well as her relationship with rap legend Biggie Smalls, who was murdered in 1997 at the age of 24.
Evans also found herself at the center of the most publicized rap beef in Hip Hop history when Tupac claimed to have slept with her in the epic diss track “Hit ‘Em Up.”
Neither Stevie J nor Faith Evans have confirmed or denied the relationship. However, recent reports suggest that both of them are single, so the possibility of a romantic relationship is likely.
During Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, it seems as though Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez are done for good. After a brief reconciliation at the reunion, the former couple have taken their beef to social media.
Hernandez has accused Stevie of being gay and a child molester, while the Hitman stated that Joseline is lying about her name, country of origin and age.
While the former couple maintained that they got married, neither party has produced a certificate of marriage and may fans of the show believe that they only had a symbolic marriage.
According to the International Business Times, when Joseline attacked Stevie J’s music career earlier this year, he responded with the following.
“[Joseline is] talking about no music on the radio in 20 years. Ma, I still get more residuals off of any song I did in the ’90s than you’ll ever get off any of them bum a–songs you did,” he said. “I got a No. 1 record right now. You’ll never have that … Be careful, be very careful baby. And I’m not your husband. Never have been and never will be.”
During the Love and Hip Hop Atlanta reunion Joseline Hernandez admitted that she was hurt by Stevie J’s denial of their alleged marriage.
Earlier this year, Joseline attacked Stevie for denying their marriage.
“I’ve been a great wife to him. I’ve been cheated on, I’ve been lied to and stood by him,” she said. “And you know when I packed up and left the home, the best thing he thought he could do was go on tour disclaiming his wife. You look like a sucker. Real men don’t do that. … You’re a married man, so what are you talking about. I respect my husband … and I think he’s a great man, but he’s not great in relationships.”
Many fans of the show think Faith Evans will be a good relationship for Stevie J. With reports that Stevie J and Joseline are no longer on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, perhaps Evans will appear on his reality TV show?
Stevie J is reportedly getting his own spinoff show, which will focus on his family while Joseline gets a pregnancy special, which is reportedly filming in Miami.
