Stevie J has asked a court to order his estranged wife, Faith Evans, to pay spousal support in the former couple’s ongoing divorce case.
According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, the famous record producer wants a monthly payment made to him by his singer wife and is asking the court to not allow her to collect anything from him.
In the filing, Stevie confirms the couple got married on July 17, 2018, and were married for over 3 years. But, he claims the two of them “separated” on October 19, 2021. Stevie cited “irreconcilable differences” as to why they split. The couple never had children, so child support is off the table. But, Stevie filled out the box on the divorce filing that says “spousal or domestic partner support payable” to him. Plus, he also marked the spot asking to “terminate the court’s ability to award support to (Faith).”
According to the report, the divorce filing doesn’t specify if the couple has a prenuptial agreement, which would be odd, considering both of them are highly successful musicians with vast wealth.
“The true nature and extent of the community/quasi-community assets and debts are unknown at this time,” Stevie says. In other words, some of the couple’s finances he is considering to be both of there’s and might need to be divided up by the court.
Stevie J is also asking the court to force Faith Evans to pay the attorney fees for both of them!
The former couple made headlines weeks back following the divorce filing, by appearing to be back together after being spotted frolicking on the beach in Malibu, CA. Evans shared an Instagram post of herself and her estranged husband doing cartwheels on the sand on November 14. “Get us free, bruh,” she captioned the videos.
The post painted a different image of the couple who are in the middle of a nasty divorce which might include fighting over money.
The divorce petition was filed with the court back in November, and it’s unclear if the couple is back together as they have not filed to end the divorce case which is ongoing.
