“Love & Hip Hop” Artist Stevie J Ordered to Rehab

Reality TV star and Grammy-winning record producer Steven Jordan was ordered to rehab followed by home detention for violating the terms of his bail.

It’s the second time the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star, aka Stevie J, has been hauled into Manhattan federal court for using drugs while awaiting trial for failure to pay over $1 million in child support.

Judge Debra Freeman warned Jordan that next time he’s caught, he will likely go straight to prison.

“It may be a bit of a shock for you. You are really testing the limits of the court’s patience,” she said.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew DeFilippis said Jordan failed multiple drugs tests, including in June and August, and that he has missed many more testing appointments. The Atlanta resident also flew to Buffalo, NY, without permission and has “adamantly denied” his drug use, DeFilippis told the judge.

“The government is really at a loss for any solution,” DeFilippis said in asking that Stevie J be locked up — a request the judge denied.

Jordan called the government’s concerns “lies” once outside the courtroom and challenged prosecutors to have it out face-to-face. He admitted to using coke twice this year — both times while in his LA studio. But said he never went to Buffalo, NY, in March without permission.

“I never left without letting them know,” he said, before shouting at prosecutors walking back to their offices, calling them “clowns.”

Jordan, who drove off in a Rolls-Royce, was arrested in 2014 for being a deadbeat dad to a son and daughter who lived with their mother in Pennsylvania.

Since 1999, he has racked up over $1 million in overdue payments despite earning a “substantial income” from his reality show, Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara said.
