It's going down for real!
Stevie J and Joseline’s problems with sharing custody of their young daughter has played out before the court of public opinion for months. The couple has warred over who should be able to see Baby Bella and when, accused each other of drug abuse, and just generally been unable to figure it all out. Now, a judge is stepping in to hash it out for them. The couple will go to an actual judge and not just people who are good at making judgmental faces on Instagram.
According to Bossip, Stevie and Joseline are scheduled to go before a judge on January 8, 2018 in Fulton County Court in Georgia.
A Bitter Feud
The pair has shared their struggles very openly, especially Stevie. The producer started a campaign just to see his daughter. The “Free Bonnie” movement enlisted the producer’s fans to help pressure Joseline into letting him see his daughter.
“Another day where I went to see Bonnie and I wasn’t able to see her,” the producer said wearily in a video update captured by The Shade Room. “She didn’t open the door for me but she opened the door for Dawn’s niece. Free Bonnie, I’m gonna see you soon, baby. I’m gonna see you real soon.”
He went and made it official with Free Bonnie t-shirts.
“FYI- this is not a joke or a game. Gonna go hard for mine until she’s back in my arms,” he wrote. “Stay tuned so I can send these disturbing messages so I show the world how sick and evil the person is.”
Outside of the case itself, Hernandez has refused to address the fight publicly. It’s all a far cry from where they were at just 10 months ago. In spite of their tumultuous relationship — documented in painful detail by the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta crew— the producer made it seem like they were willing to work around their own problems for the sake of their daughter.
“I’m trying to stay on a positive path with Joseline,” he said in an interview with HollywoodLife around the time of Bonnie’s birth. “We’re co-parenting and I want to keep things as positive as possible. I just want to let the negativity go and make sure everyone is happy.”
However, that has completely fallen apart. Since then Stevie has repeatedly attacked Joseline’s character. He’s accused her of being jealous of her fellow LHH star Cardi B’s success and has said that she is abusing drugs.
A judge has ordered both of them to undergo drug testing and a child monitor has been assigned to them. The findings of both of those are sure to come out and be used in the case… if it goes before a judge as scheduled.
What do you think? How will this shake out for Stevie J? For Joseline? For Bonnie?
