The arrest comes amid rumors that the couple’s marriage is on the brink of collapse. At one point they even unfollowed each other on social media. As noted by TMZ, there’s also Stevie’s cryptic tweets such as, “Drunk people always speak their truth,” and “Ones insecurities can damage them” to “All that glitters ain’t gold” and “Cherish what you love just know nothing will last forever.”

But when asked about marital troubles at the Essence Festival in New Orleans last year, the couple denied any issues. 

“What the hell did we do now?” Evans said. “Ain’t no trouble in paradise.” She added, “You can’t believe everything that you hear.” 

Following news of her arrest, Stevie J took to Twitter on Monday (June 1) to write “So grateful to God for another day, time to pray meditate & renew my mind.”
