One month after Stevie J filed to divorce Faith Evans, the Grammy-winning artist has reportedly asked a judge to deny his request for spousal assistance

Faith is also seeking to retain “all property acquired before marriage, by gifts, inheritance, or ingenuity, and after the date of separation,” according to The Blast. In court documents, Evans states they’ve been officially separated since May 29, 2020, while Stevie J’s filing states the date is October 19, 2021.

In May 2020, Faith was arrested for felony domestic violence for allegedly attacking her husband at their home.

Stevie, birth name Steven Aaron Jordan, filed for divorce on November 8 at Los Angeles County Superior Court. No reason was provided for the separation.

Evans was previously married to The Notorious B.I.G., and they have a son, C.J. Wallace, 25. The “I’ll Be Missing You” singer was also married to Todd Russaw, a record executive, from 1998 to 2011. They share children Ryder Evan, 14, and Joshua, who is 21.
