Did Stevie J & Faith Evans Really Get Married in Las Vegas?

Are Stevie J and Faith Evans REALLY married? That’s the question on the minds of many after TMZ reported yesterday that the couple applied for a marriage license on Tuesday (Jul. 17) just hours before they tied the knot in a secret “quickie wedding” in Las Vegas.

Several attendees at the top-secret ceremony confirmed the news to TMZ that Stevie and Faith exchanged “I Do’s” in their Vegas hotel room around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night, about four hours after Faith called in a local minister to ask him if he was available to do a wedding at Trump Hotel ASAP.

Because folks like receipts when it comes to stuff like this, TMZ also published a photo of the supposed newlyweds outside of a courthouse in Las Vegas after obtaining their marriage license.

TMZ reported:

The ceremony was performed in the living room of their hotel suite with Faith and Stevie overlooking the Vegas strip. Sources close to the couple tell us they held hands and teared up while “Ave Maria” played on a portable speaker.

We’re told the “Gypsy Minister” — whose services cost a couple hundred bucks — had no idea she was marrying off celebs. She even asked Faith if she was a model or an actress. Faith politely said she’s a singer … to which the minister said, “Me too!”

Apparently, after tying the knot, the couple exchanged tweets affirming their love for one another. Stevie tweeted “I love you Faith Renee Jordan” and Evans tweeted back, “I love you back Steven Aaron Jordan.”

The reports have fans scratching their heads because while Stevie and Faith have dated in the past, them getting hitched seems to be a bit … strange. If they are, indeed, married, as the multiple reports suggest, this is Stevie’s first marriage and Faith’s third. She has previously been married to Todd Russaw and the Notorious B.I.G.

Though Stevie has never been married, he currently has six children and a grandchild. His sixth child, his daughter with his former Love & Hip Hop Atlanta co-star Joseline Hernandez, is barely two years old.

News of their marriage also comes immediately following the release of a sneak peek of the video for their collaboration “A Minute,” which also has fans wondering if this is all a publicity stunt for reality TV and to promote their new song and video, which will both be released “EVERYWHERE on July 27th,” according to this tweet from Faith:

Stevie J and Faith Evans have known each other for a while, since the 90’s to be exact, when Stevie was a producer for Evans’ then-husband, the Notorious B.I.G. Stevie and Faith started dating in 2016 after working together in the studio, but broke up for a brief period.

“I’ve known her for like 25 years,” he told The Breakfast Club in December 2016. “We was like family and then as years progressed, we just began to hang out more [and] talk more.”

A few months later, in her own interview with The Breakfast Club in March 2017, Evans said of the romance, “I never took Stevie serious, actually.”

She continued, “I think probably in the last 10 years, I would say, is he trying to flirt? Lets go. But I never saw him like that. I have always had plenty of male friends. Never dated any of them. I was just really cool like that. I think I really should have been a boy or something. But I’m just cool with dudes. I would check on him, just hear if he was going through stuff and find out how to get in touch with him….[I was] Just really sincerely his friend.”

Faith explained that when she and Stevie finally got together, she told him the relationship had to be serious, or else it would be nothing at all. She said, “You know, I’m like, ‘you know I’m not about all the craziness. If I’m going to be in a relationship, it’s gotta be a serious one. You know?’ And I think probably for a few months he definitely went through the convincing and not getting a real response. You know, just, even though I was brushing him off, [he was] like, ‘no for real I really wanna be with you, I love you.’ And I’m like, ‘I love you too, but I don’t know if I wanna be with you.’ You know what I’m saying?”

In April 2018, Stevie and Faith rekindled their romance when Stevie attended a party Faith was throwing, and the whole thing was documented on Stevie’s VH1 reality show Leave it to Stevie. “Faith is beautiful,” Stevie said on his show. “When I’m around her, I feel like I’m the best version of myself.”

Stevie said to Faith: “If I’m being honest, I did some things I shouldn’t have done.” Evans replied: “You know we are always solid.”

“I want to be tighter than solid, you know what I’m saying?” Stevie J said. “I never speak to you anymore.” Stevie then got on one knee, as if he were proposing to her. “I know what I need to do,” he said, and Evans laughed back, “Where’s the drinks?”

A few months later, it looks like Stevie J made good on the joke he made to Evans. And now, friends and family of the “newlyweds” aren’t too pleased that they got married in a secret ceremony.

According to TMZ, family sources on both sides said they were never given a heads-up that a marriage between the two was even a possibility. The person who’s most upset? Faith’s 21-year-old son CJ Wallace—her child with Biggie Smalls.

We’re told there was never talk — not a hint — of a wedding. Faith was scheduled to be in L.A. getting ready for a London trip, and Stevie was just in Atlanta for ‘Love & Hip Hop’ … so the Vegas rendezvous that ended in “I do” floored everyone.

Our sources say there are a lot of hurt feelings among those close to the couple … especially their kids. We’re told Faith’s son, CJ Wallace — her child with Biggie Smalls — is especially upset … because he’s also Stevie’s godson.

Family sources on Faith’s side tell us … Faith told them Stevie J went to her Tuesday and told her they needed to get married that day. The sources think Stevie J knew if Faith started telling friends and family she was marrying him, they would talk her out of it.

And, get this … friends and family members were blowing up Faith’s phone Wednesday, asking her why she did it. She responded by sending them a song she just recorded with Stevie J called, “A Minute” with the explanation … it only took a minute to fall in love.

Omar Gooding Screams Homophobic Slurs During Heated Argument at Las Vegas Pizza Restaurant

Apparently waiting too long for pizza unleashes the raging homophobia hidden deep with Omar Gooding.

The actor dropped several f-bombs, including the homophobic slur, during a heated argument with an alleged off-duty cop in Las Vegas. And it was all caught on camera.

The incident took place at around 3 am Saturday morning (June 9) at a food court/bar area in Vegas. A very hungry and impatient Gooding became frustrated that his pizza order was taking so long and witnesses say he began “degrading” an employee. A man who claimed to be a cop/federal agent then intervened in an attempt to calm Cuba Gooding Jr.’s younger brother.

Unfortunately, the man also found himself on receiving end of Gooding’s wrath. The Smart Guy alum verbally attacked the man, called him the homophobic f-word twice and a “retard.” He also repeatedly challenged the “cop” to actually arrest him. The two eventually parted ways as security arrived to defuse the situation.

“By no means am I a hater or homophobic,” Gooding later told TMZ. He apologized for his offensive words but added, “who wouldn’t be a little impatient?” after waiting for food so late at night.

“My apologies for the offensive language, but that does not define who I am … we calmly communicated, worked it out and all was forgiven.”

He said that all parties involved in the screaming match apologized and walked away. Though security got involved, there was no arrests or complaints filed.
