Stevie J is dumping the old ball and chain, singer Faith Evans, after 3 years of marriage.

TMZ reports the music producer and reality TV star filed divorce papers at Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday.

Stevie and Faith tied the knot in a Las Vegas hotel room in July 2018. The wedding totally blindsided their friends and family and was doomed from the start.

Stevie, 50, and Faith, 48, have children from previous relationships, but their union did not produce children.

The marriage was rocky over the years, and in 2020 Faith was arrested for domestic violence after allegedly attacking Stevie.

This will be the first divorce for Stevie, a father of six, and the second for Faith, a mother of four.

Stevie was involved in a longterm relationship with his Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta co-star Joseline Hernandez.

Stevie and Joseline admitted they faked a marriage in 2013 for a Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta storyline.

In 2016, he fathered a daughter, Bonnie'Bella Jordan, with Joseline.
