Evans and Stevie J, born Steven Aaron Jordan, first married in 2018 after a relationship lasting several years.

Prior to marrying the producer, the performer was married to her former collaborator Christopher Wallace, known as The Notorious BIG, with whom she shared a son.

The couple married in 1994 and separated two years later. In 1997, the very influential rapper was murdered by an unknown assailant.

Evans went on to form a relationship with music industry executive Todd Russaw, and the couple ended up getting married in 1998.

The happy couple welcomed a son the same year and waited almost a decade before adding another son to their lives.

The former couple stayed together for several years before separating and divorcing in 2011.

Evans then married Stevie J and they stayed together for several years before TMZ announced that they were preparing to end their marriage last month.

A source recently spoke to People and told the outlet that the estranged couple are still on good terms and are planning to spend Christmas with each other.

– It’s true, they spend the holidays together. Their family, everyone, all the children. Everyone gets along well, ”they said.

The insider noted that Stevie J was inexperienced when it came to being in a long-term relationship with a spouse.

“It’s not a dysfunctional family. It’s just that Stevie was never married – and he married Faith, ”he said.

The source added that the producer “likes” it. He wouldn’t marry her if he didn’t.
