After being publicly blasted by her baby’s father, a “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star is offering a response to reports that she lost custody of her daughter. As previously reported, Stevie J caused an online ruckus when he claimed that his youngest daughter, whom he shares with Mimi Faust, is in his sole custody.
“I got custody of my youngest, God is great!”,wrote J on Twitter. “Shout out to all the fathers that have custody of their kids.”
Now Faust is responding and visited Egypt Sherrod’s radio show to tell her side of the story. According to Mimi, she and J have never set foot in a courtroom and his rant was actually a desperate cry for attention. She adds that J lashed out after she refused his request to attend a family dinner with his daughter and his relatives.
“This is what happened,” said Faust to Sherrod. “His dad as in town. Eva has not seen her grandfather since she was maybe 18 months. I went over, dropped the baby off so she could spend time with her grandfather and that’s the gist of his having custody. I didn’t want to come in. He invited me in and I said why would I do that?”
And when asked specifically if she and her ex had ever gone to court to discuss custody, Mimi stated the following; “We never went to court. We’ve never ever gone to court.”
She did say, however, that after she dropped off her daughter, J threatened to take her to the Supreme Court to discuss the custody issue. “I said, ‘you mean family court?’ ” said Faust. “And it’s Saturday. Really? What court you going to on Saturday?!”
In addition to about her messy disagreement with J, Faust also introduced the world to her new beau. Nikko, a producer and artist, recently moved to Atlanta to be with the reality TV star whom he’s known for years.
“Man, she’s the one, look at her,” said Nikko. “She’s the one.”
Nikko is currently working on “The Nikko & Johnny Project” and has been told that he looks very much like Stevie J.
Stevie J has yet to respond.
