Faith Evans, Stevie J Relationship Timeline
Stevie J confirmed his romance with Evans back in December 2016. During an interview with The Breakfast Club, the reality star shared that the relationship was relatively new.
"I've known her for like 25 years," he stated. "We was like family and then as years progressed, we just began to hang out more [and] talk more."
In 2017, the two briefly parted ways. In an interview with BET, the new Mrs. Jordan said that J was not ready for a serious relationship with her at the time. She did say, however, that she will always love him.
Eventually, they found their way back to each others' arms, and the relationship became stronger than ever. The newlyweds recently starred in the sexy music video of "A Minute."
