Is this the end for Stevie J? The music producer and OG cast member of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is reportedly on the brink of being fired from the VH1 series after he allegedly attacked Erica Mena at the show's reunion taping. So, what happen between the co-stars?
All season, Erica has been accusing Stevie of mentally abusing her friend and new cast member Estelita so when the pair finally met on stage, things quickly escalated. Stevie is being accused of using homophobic slurs, which we won't repeat here, against Erica's 11-year-old son, King Conde, among other things. Erica responded by slapping the father-of-six, and that's when things reportedly went from bad to worse.
According to the Atlanta Black Star, security "had to pull the 46-year-old off" Erica and he was asked to leave the building immediately. Erica seemingly confirmed the reports in a since-deleted Instagram video, saying, "He likes to fight females. If you blogs want to blog about anything, blog about the fact the Stevie J. is a b—h, and he likes to fight girls."
Due to his behavior, the outlet is reporting that Stevie is on "the brink" of being fired and is banned from attending any events related to the series due to the ongoing investigation. Unfortunately, this is not the first time Stevie had used homophobic language on the popular reality show.
Earlier this year, Stevie J also made headlines when he was arrested for driving with a suspended license, and before that, he was arrested in 2014 for allegedly owing $1 million in child support. This past March, it was reported that Stevie still owed $1.3 million to his baby mamas — including L&HH stars Joseline Hernandez and Mimi Faust — and is facing jail time again after losing his appeal.
The show's creator Mona Scott has yet to comment on Stevie's employment status.
