It’s no secret, Stevie J has had some challenges with drug addiction. On last season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, the reality TV star even does a stint in rehab. Stevie, who has a new spin-off with his wife, Stevie J & Joseline Go Hollywood, opened up about how he became addicted to cocaine. He explained to the Rickey Smiley Morning Show how he was introduced to cocaine,
Man, I was at the Trump in New York City….All my buddies use to do it and you know I use to say, I’m cool you know I smoke my weed. And it was just a plethora of women around and everybody was in it and I was like ‘Let me try that’. Tried it once. I woke up the next morning like ‘Yo, what happened?’ I fell asleep on every body. Then it was like, it became like alright once a week, alright cool. Party. Twice a week. Alright. Three times, four times. Every day, every week — you know what I’m saying?
After the LA thing. I moved back out here to Atlanta and I started to focus more on my children so LA is really where it got bananas.
When asked about his relationship with Joseline, he explains,
You know, I love shorty and all that. I just need to take some time in the studio and do what Stevie does.
The producer also insists that he’s married.
Yeah, absolutely but my thing is — I need to focus on Stevie.
