Grammy winner Faith Evans has confirmed what has been suspected by many for months now: she’s dating “Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta” star Stevie J.
In an Instagram post she did on Monday evening, the First Lady of Bad Boy Entertainment wrote under a split image of she and Stevie J: “Well I guess it’s Ooouuu…(in my Young MA voice) #TiptoeinginTampa with @hitmansteviej_1 #BadBoyFamilyReunionTour #teamfizzy #teamprolific #charmflowersgroup #TKAI coming soon!”
AlwaysAList.com has known for several months the two were a couple, but due to our personal relationship with them respected their privacy.

It was rumored that Faith and Stevie were a couple back in January, when his estranged wife Joseline Hernandez accused the two of messing around while they were recording her duets album with her late husband, Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace.
Hernandez made headlines for ruining more than $65,000 worth of Stevie’s belongings, including bleaching a $10,000 Bad Boy jacket that was gifted from Sean “Diddy” Combs, $40,000 worth of clothes and over 20 pairs of sneakers; as well as breaking more than $15,000 of his Versace china.

Regardless, after 22 years of knowing each other, Stevie and Faith are an official item. The two have been inseparable most of the year, with Stevie joining Faith onstage some nights during the Bad Boy Reunion Tour.
Faith was married for 13 years to entertainment executive Todd Russaw. They divorced in 2011.
Stevie is currently going through a divorce with feisty ex Hernandez and has been romantically linked to rapper Eve, Whoopi Goldberg’s daughter Alex Martin, and “Love & Hip-Hop” star Mimi Faust over the years.
