Stevie J ordered to return Faith Evans’ ‘stolen’ Benz as divorce battle heats up

Stevie J has been ordered to return Faith Evans’ “stolen” Mercedes-Benz as the pair’s long drawn-out divorce battle begins to gain traction.

In the latest court documents obtained by Radar Online, the ex-Love & Hip Hop star was ordered to turn over his estranged wife’s vehicle after she claimed he stole it in order to drive to Coachella.

Faith Evans filed an emergency motion to have the car — a 2023 Mercedes Sprinter Van — returned as she purchased it this year with her own money. The incident in question allegedly transpired on April 12 after Evans went to bed, at which point Stevie took the keys and drove away with the vehicle, she claimed.

Evans said she followed up with Stevie and asked him to return the vehicle, but he declined. She added in the docs that she had previously filed a police report reporting the vehicle stolen on April 12, which the court granted and ordered the car to be returned immediately.

Faith Evans also asked the court to intervene to make sure Stevie J couldn’t drive the van as well as her other vehicles, including a 2020 Mercedes G Wagon and Chrysler Pacifica.

“The insurance policy does not cover [Stevie], and he is unauthorized to drive,” the motion reads, with Evans adding that she paid $164,000 for the van without any financing. She also said that Stevie’s license is currently suspended so legally he can’t operate a motor vehicle.

The emergency motion is just the latest in what has been a messy divorce between the Love & Hip Hop pair. As mentioned in another report from Radar Online last week, Stevie J was forced to hire a new lawyer named Evan Itzkowitz after his former divorce attorney dropped him in 2022 due to an “irremediable breakdown.”

Stevie had previously bared his soul to Evans in an Instagram post for Mother’s Day last year, apologizing for his actions and pleading for forgiveness.

“Faith Rene Jordan I’ve hurt you, disrespected you and humiliated you in front of the world,” he wrote. “From this day forward I promise to listen to your feelings and be more delicate with your heart. I also promise to build you up even more & to communicate daily with you, respect you and love on you until you’re as happy as you were when we got married.

“I’ve learned my lesson and I NEVER want to live without you because God knows I’m a better man with you and I’m asking you to find it in your heart to forgive me and allow me to rebuild our trust. Happy Mothers Day x I love you.”

The pair were then spotted on a beach date two months later, with Stevie referring to Faith as his “best friend” in a video he posted to Instagram.
