    In a recent interview, Stevie declared that he’s co-producing, directing, and starring in a film called That Time of The Month, which will be released in February, 2016.

    In addition to dating Eve and Mimi Faust, one of his earlier girlfriends was Alex Martin, daughter of Whoopi Goldberg. They were together for six years and engaged to be married.

  3. He’s originally from…Buffalo??

    Yep, he was a small-town kid with big city dreams. Stevie was born in Buffalo, NY and spent his formative years in Rochester, NY before heading to NYC, then Los Angeles, and finally Atlanta.

  4. His father is a Pentecostal bishop. He never knew his mother, she left his family when he was just 8 months old.

[Ed. Note: An earlier version of this list featured a video of Stevie J. with two women, and identified them both as mothers of his children. We have since learned that one of the women identified was just a friend and had no romantic relationship with Stevie. We sincerely regret the error.]
