Shortly after Episode 7 of â€˜Love and Hip Hop Atlantaâ€™ aired, rumors surfaced that Stevie J. could be expecting an unexpected love child. The woman in question, was TammieÂ Grant, ex-wife of NBA player DougÂ Grant. It wasnâ€™t too far of a stretch, considering that at one point Stevie J was producing anÂ albumÂ for Tammieâ€™s daughter TaurynÂ Grant. However, Tammie Grant released a statement to set the record straight.
Tammie says that Stevie J did notÂ break upÂ her marriage, she is not pregnant and sheâ€™d love to distance herself from Stevie J and all of his foolish scandals.
I am not pregnant with Stevie Jâ€™s baby. There are rumors being said that just are not true. Yes, at one time me and Stevie were very close and we were seeingÂ each other. I never gave Stevie anyÂ moneyÂ which is absurd, nor did heÂ break upÂ my marriage, me and GaryÂ GrantÂ were already separated for 2 years when me and Stevie met. It was at my best interest to distance myself from Stevie and the scandals. I only have kind things to say about him and fond memories. I wish him and his beautiful children all the luck.
In other news, Eve recently hosted an â€˜Intimate Hourâ€™ with high school girls in Philly and she revealed her journey of self-discovery, all while touching on her relationship with Stevie. According to Eve, he wouldnâ€™t even be able to see the girl that she is now.
Eve on if Stevie J was her first love:
Yes, Stevie J was my first love.
On how she defines the â€˜loveâ€™ between her and Stevie back then:
You know whatâ€¦that was a learning experience. You meet people all the time. We just happen to fall in love. Umm, but thankfully I knew better, I know better, I am happily in love now. And the girl now (referring to herself) he couldnâ€™t even see this. I would be like, â€œIâ€™m sorry, we donâ€™t speak the same language!â€ But you know, it is what it isâ€¦.thatâ€™s life. Sometimes you meet people who arenâ€™t great for you but thankfully I am in a different place.
On things she would not put up with now that she is older and knows better:
When I was younger I didnâ€™t question things but now I am annoying! Like if something doesnâ€™t feel right speak up! If you feel like you are being lied to speak up! If you feel like Sexually he is trying to push you to fast speak up. And let me tell you something. Anybody that knows your worth it will stick around. They might not talk to you about it, they may talk to you about it but if they argue with you or if they call you a name or if they roll out they are not meant to be in your life anyways.
Thanks ladies for clearing the air. There you have it!
