Stevie J plead guilty to failing to pay child support and for that reason, the judge has ordered the Love & Hip Hop star to cough up $1,304,835.86.
Stevie J, who owed over 1.3 million in unpaid child support, was originally facing 6 months in jail for failure to pay. Instead, he will be able to wipe the slate clean if he just coughs up the money. In the meantime, he’ll be on probation for 3 years (or until he’s paid up).
Stevie told the judge, “I accept full responsibility for not fully financially supporting my children when I was younger, but I’ve stepped up to the plate now and I fully support my children not only financially, but they are the closest individuals to me.”
