Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez appear to be at peace these days.
It’s miraculous, but true, despite all the ups and downs (and then further ups and more intense downs) the former couple has experienced over the past few years.
Just consider the following photo Joseline shared on Instagram over the weekend:
Look at that!
It’s an actual photo of Stevie and Joseline with their daughter, Bonnie Bella, posing like an actual family.
This is a stunning development for those who watch Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta online and/or have followed the crazy insults and allegations hurled back and forth between Stevie and Joseline since they last broke up.
She’s accused him of being a dead beat child molester.
He’s accused her of taking drugs while pregnant and not being stable enough to raise a child.
It’s gotten very ugly, but Stevie came right out in January and said he was ready to squash the beef with his latest baby mama, who gave birth to little Bonnie in December.
Speaking to TMZ at the time, Stevie said he really wants him and Joseline to “come together” and act as the “best parents” they can be to their daughter.
And, as you can see above, that’s exactly what’s been happening. Hooray!
All this said, however, Stevie and Joseline are about to go from friendly exes to bitter enemies in court this summer.
Attorneys for both Stevie and Joseline have reportedly failed to agree on terms of a deal that would have allowed the ex-lovers to avoid a courtroom.
Therefore, according to NFG-TV, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jane Barwick has set a June date for the beginning of a custody battle between the reality stars.
It’s unclear exactly what will be at stake, but it’s safe to assume visitation rights and time spent with Bonnie will be the main topic at the center of the trial.
Hernandez may also want to get legal documentation of what Stevie will pay her in child support.
The multi-time father hasn’t always held up his end of this sort of bargain; in January, prosecutors wanted to jail Stevie for $1.3 million in unpaid child support.
Overall, Stevie J has fathered six children with five women: Rhonda Henderson, Felicia Stover, Carol Antoinette Bennett, Mimi Faust and Joseline.
Those are a lot of mouths to feed, and there’s no reason to believe that Leave It to Stevie will be renewed by VH1 for a second season.
In other words: it’s unclear how Stevie will keep earning enough money to keep up his child support demands.
He may be posing happily with Joseline and his latest daughter in the social media photo above.
But would anyone be surprised if these two were back to beefing in a matter of
seconds days months?
