OK, let’s talk about the super surprise marriage of Faith Evans and Stevie J. Not only was the public blindsided, but so were close friends and family. And as a result, there are a lot of people who are totally not happy with the situation.
According to a TMZ report, family sources – on both sides – say they weren’t given a heads-up that marriage was even a possibility. There wasn’t this slightest hint of Faith and Stevie J jumping the broom.
Faith was scheduled to be in L.A. getting ready for a London trip and Stevie was just in Atlanta for “Love & Hip Hop” … so the Vegas hook up that resulted in the “I do” thingy floored everyone.
Those sources say there are a lot of hurt feelings among those close to the couple … especially their kids. We’re told Faith’s son, CJ Wallace — her child with Biggie Smalls — is especially upset … because he’s also Stevie’s godson.
Family sources on Faith’s side say Faith told them Stevie J went to her Tuesday and told her they needed to get married that day. The sources think Stevie J knew if Faith started telling friends and family she was marrying him, they would talk her out of it.
And of course, friends and family members were blowing up Faith’s phone Wednesday, asking her why she did it. She responded by sending them a song she just recorded with Stevie J called, “A Minute” with the explanation … it only took a minute to fall in love.
TMZ is also reporting that a number of friends and fam are so bitter … Faith and Stevie won’t be receiving wedding gifts.
As we reported, Faith and Stevie tied the knot in their hotel room around 10:30pm Tuesday. It’s his first marriage and her third.
