Another day and another reality TV star is called out for lack of child support. Today (February 21), Steven A. “Stevie J” Jordan was served a subpoena to appear in Family Court over unpaid child support payments.
Stevie was served the subpoena at his new restaurant, “Sleazy & Zino” by Project Child Support, a foundation which helps custodial parents with collections. The subpoena stipulates that Stevie must provide a recent pay stub, W-2 wage and tax documents with most recent filed federal and state income tax returns. This stipulation could change the conditions of his child support payment as Bennett, in an interview with The Urban Daily in November, alleged that Stevie was using duplicitous tactics to avoid paying more child support:
Another thing is that a lot of his monies were being kept in businesses. When you change the name, it’s hard to continue to track those businesses. He changes the business name every two years. Also, he moves money and puts it in other peoples’ names. That’s what I think is happening. That’s what I’ve come up with because he does have companies.
Back in October of 2013, Carol Bennett sued Stevie J for over $1 million in back taxes and accused him of missing over 160 payments by November of 2013. In December, Stevie J denounced the lawsuit in an interview with Sister 2 Sister ion the grounds that she made no mention of suing him when they were together two weeks prior:
Nah! I mean let me know what’s going on. Let me know the play. I didn’t know the play. It’s just like, ‘Okay. I thought we was cool. I just hit you with some racks and some bands!
