Stevie J. and Mimi have to be one of the saddest couples on television. The Stevie J. Mimi Faust drama continues past the taping of the first season of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. We’ve already learned who K. Michelle’s ex boyfriend is that abused her, we’ve learned how Lil Scrappy and Diamond dating went sour, and we know that Joseline Hernandez would get pregnant by Stevie J., and that Stevie J. and Lil Scrappy would have an epic fight. Even for an urban gossip addict, that’s enough drama to last a lifetime. Despite the other storyline, Stevie J. and Mimi continue to be one of the most controversial and appealing. Yes we know Stevie J. is a dog and Mimi is naive for staying but perhaps it’s because women enjoy pointing their fingers at the woman who makes stupid dating decisions on television, while the others are smart enough to just do it in private and away from the cameras.
Stevie J. has a nasty reputation as a slutty music producer that he has earned from at least two decades of him sleeping around with famous women and women connected to the most influential of black celebrities. Stevie J. dated Eve and the couple called it quits when Eve discovered his cheating ways. Of course she would later find it difficult to separate herself from Stevie J. since the Stevie J. and Eve sex tape was released during the height of her career as a female rapper. Many speculated that tape has been released by a financially struggling Stevie J. who was so desperate for money that he’s do something as trifling to ex girlfriend ex to pay down his growing debt.
Despite all of this, Mimi Faust has been labeled as a desperate baby momma who doesn’t seem to understand when it’s time to call it quits. Stevie J. and Mimi has a long history together that stems over 15 years of an and off romance. While many have been critical of the relationship that was exposed on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, Mimi may be smarter than people are giving her credit for.
In a recent interview with V-103, Mimi Faust low key admits that she and Stevie J. have broken up:
A lot has changed. You guys, when you’re in a relationship and things happen, it’s a process of getting out. One thing will happen and you just don’t leave your family because one thing happened. So it’s definitely a process of a transition and process stage that you go through so that’s what I’m going through right now.
I would love to keep my family together. But at this point I don’t see that happening so I’m willing to just let this do what it do.
There have also been whispers in Atlanta that the couple actually called it quits during the taping of the show (how convenient) and Joseline Hernandez is the cause of the demise of Stevie J. and Mimi.
