The new season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta kicked off last night and one of the biggest talking points was about Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez’s marriage. Not since Peter Gunz created a new civil status known as ’side-wife’ has a marriage sounded so many alarms and cast so much doubt.
Currently, the circumstances of the wedding are sketchy and proof of the marriage sparse. But in an attempt to get to the bottom of this case, we’re launching a weekly investigative series that will present evidence to support both sides of the argument so you can arrive at a plausible conclusion and settle the question once and for all. We have employed our top notch Internet detectives and state-of-the-art forensics lab to scour the web for evidence that will lead us to the light of truth. These investigators have solved many riddles throughout the centuries from The Lost City of Atlanta to K.Michelle’s ever-changing hair to the missing Kingdom of Momma Dee. We are confident that by the end of the season, we will find the truth.

Case File: Stevie J + Joseline: Married or Not?
Docket #: LHHATL301
Facts of the Case:
In the summer of 2013, after the season finale of the widely successful season two of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Hip Hop Weekly magazine ran a cover story that shocked the world to it’s core. “Stevie J & Joseline Married” the headline read accompanied by a glowing photo of the scantily clad couple. All throughout that summer until the present day, the couple has been very public about their civil union, which they maintain was performed by a Justice of the Peace. However, the name of the official was never released.
The following evidence supports the position that Stevie J + Joseline ARE married.
Exhibit A: Joseline Named As Stevie J’s Spouse
In April 2014, the Hip Hop magazine, The Source reported that Stevie J, A.K.A Steven Jordan allegedly received a subpoena from a lower court regarding unpaid child support. In the document, the court named Joseline Hernandez as the defendant’s spouse. Now if a court of law designates one person as someone’s spouse – that has got to be real.
Exhibit B: The Hip Hop Weekly Banner Story
The press is supposed to be the bastion of truth. It’s very freedom is guaranteed by the constitution. That’s why in August of 2013, when Hip Hop Weekly ran an exclusive banner story that announced the marriage of Stevie J and Joseline, any questions about their marriage was put to rest.
The following evidence supports the position that Stevie + Joseline’s marriage NEVER happened.
Exhibit A: Joseline Forgets Her Wedding DateThe date of someone’s wedding is perhaps one of the most important dates in someone’s life. But while Joseline Hernandez remembers that fact she used to be amazing pole dancer, she fumbles on the exact date of her wedding with Stevie J, which is reason enough to fuel the fiery doubts that people have about her marriage.
Exhibit B: Stevie J Ducks The Marriage QuestionIn one of the Live chats we had with Stevie J right after the finale of season two, host Sharon Carpenter asked him straight if he and Joseline were truly married. His response was vague and non-committal, which thrilled Mimi Faust, who also threw in another intriguing question: where’s the marriage certificate?
