Stevie says he's being blocked from seeing his daughter.
It was all good just a month ago.
Y’all remember back earlier this summer when Stevie J posted those adorable videos with his daughter Bonnie Bella? Well, that was eons ago in reality TV romance time. (The drinks that have been thrown alone. It’s unfathomable.)
It looks like Stevie and Joseline have fallen back out again. In spite of his t-shirt campaign and their seeming reconcilliation, Stevie went to Joseline’s house to pick up his daughter and wound up talking to the door instead. “Another day where I went to see Bonnie and I wasn’t able to see her,” the producer said wearily in a video update captured by The Shade Room. “She didn’t open the door for me but she opened the door for Dawn’s niece. Free Bonnie, I’m gonna see you soon, baby. I’m gonna see you real soon.”
How did we get to the point this point? Well, that’s a long story, and like all things Stevie J and Joseline, you have to pick a side to believe.
When Bonnie was born last year, Stevie J and Joseline appeared open to the idea of co-parenting. In spite of their tumultuous relationship — documented in painful detail by the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta crew that Stevie always seemed to forget was there — the producer made it seem like they were willing to work around their own problems for the sake of their daughter.
“I’m trying to stay on a positive path with Joseline,” he said in an interview with HollywoodLife. “We’re co-parenting and I want to keep things as positive as possible. I just want to let the negativity go and make sure everyone is happy.”
That peace on Earth and goodwill toward even her attitude didn’t last the year. Last month, Stevie J got messy and posted a mocked up t-shirt with the words “Free Bonnie Bella” written on it to social media. Clearly, the pair had fallen out again.
“FYI- this is not a joke or a game. Gonna go hard for mine until she’s back in my arms,” he wrote. Apparently, Stevie was taking it seriously enough to put some money down at the print shop because he showed up on social media a few days later wearing an actual “Free Bonnie” shirt.
“Stay tuned so I can send these disturbing messages so I show the world how sick and evil the person is,” he captioned the post.
Though Stevie has been very vocal, Joseline has remained largely (and uncharacteristically) silent on the issue of their seemingly nasty battle over their daughter. Perhaps she’s waiting for Stevie to produce proof that she’s keeping Bonnie from him, proof that he might not have. For all his bluster and shirt-printing, he hasn’t shared anything that proves Joseline is intentionally keeping the infant from her father. Then again, maybe she’s mum because she’s busy raising the child they had together.
