The pair do not share any children together and it is currently unclear if a prenup was arranged before their wedding.

The split may not surprise some, as Stevie and Faith have had a tumultuous relationship in the past. Over a year ago, Faith was arrested on domestic violence charges after she allegedly attacked her husband.

Law enforcement told TMZ in May 2020 that Faith was arrested around 1 am after cops were called to their home in LA. Faith and Stevie allegedly got into a heated argument, which turned violent.

It was also reported that cops noticed visible marks and scratches on Stevie’s face upon their arrival at the home. 48-year-old Faith’s arrest came after she and Stevie seemingly attempted to downplay rumors their marriage was in trouble.

The split marks the first divorce for Stevie J, as Faith was previously married to Todd Russaw from 1998-2011. Faith also married The Notorious B.I.G. in 1994 and remained with him until his death in 1997.
