Stevie J has two teenage kids with ex-girlfriend Carol Bennett. In 1990 the rapper was ordered to pay $6,000 per month in child support, which was then increased to $8,500.

But Stevie J defaulted in 2001 and has not paid any money since then. Now he owes a total $1,107,412 in back child support.

Stevie J has since bonded out of jail but will be facing a judge in a New York court sometime soon.
