Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Stevie J says he can't be the bad father he's being portrayed as, despite reports of his seven-figure (!) child support debt.
He loves his kids, the reality star insists. Really, he does.
So much, in fact, that he even buys them Air Jordans.
Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez were out last night with one of his adult sons, who proudly displayed to TMZ cameras how well dad takes care of him.
The sneakers are nice, but a judge is not impressed.
Stevie J was recently arrested for unpaid child support, a pretty wild feat, as he likely had to ignore countless court orders and judgments to reach that point.
He says he's got a plan to raise the money he owes and then some, and he'll be vindicated in time. We're not holding our breath, but here's hoping.
If you watch Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta online, you know that the man doesn't have a sterling reputation when it comes to telling the truth. Just saying.
Will he make our Celebrity Father of the Year 2015 list? Stay tuned ... and scroll through some famous dads who do more than buy Air Jordans:
