Faith Evans marries 'Love & Hip Hop' star Stevie J
Faith Evans, the widow of late rapper The Notorious B.I.G., has allegedly married musician Stevie J.
The 45-year-old singer – the widow of late rapper The Notorious B.I.G. – tied the knot with the US musician in Las Vegas, and the pair are said to have hired their wedding official just hours before getting hitched on Tuesday night (17.07.18).
Sources close to the newlyweds told TMZ that Faith called local minister Joelle Righetti – who goes by the name Gypsy Mobile Minister on her website – to ask if she could marry the pair at Trump Hotel in the city.
The phone call is said to have taken place around 6pm, and the couple tied the knot just four-and-a-half hours later, with the pair overlooking the Vegas strip.
During the ceremony, the couple held hands and got emotional when ‘Ave Maria’ played out on a portable speaker.
While the pair are yet to confirm their marriage on social media, Stevie took to Twitter on Wednesday (18.07.18) to declare his love for Faith.
He wrote: “I love you Faith Renee Jordan (sic)”
She replied: “I love you back Steven Aaron Jordan (sic)”
Stevie and Faith do have a history together. The pair met back in the 1990s when Stevie was the producer for Faith's then-husband Biggie Smalls. They are rumored to have dated shortly after Biggie died.
And the two heated up again in 2017 -when they began dating after Stevie worked with Faith in the studio. The pair dated for a couple of months and then it fizzled out. Faith told Angela Yee on her Lip Service radio show, "I did date him but there was a long period of time I couldn't fathom that thought," she said. "I never had that thought. Even when he tried to really holla at me, it took months of him convincing me that he was trying to be different."
Faith was married to The Notorious B.I.G., who was also known as Biggie Smalls, from 1994 to 1997 when he was shot dead in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles.
Their son Christopher Wallace Jr. – who now goes by the name Cee Jay – was just five months old at the time.
Faith and Biggie – whose real name is Christopher Wallace – met at a Bad Boy records photoshoot.
