Stevie J.

Reality TV star and Grammy-winning record producer Steven Jordan was ordered to rehab followed by home detention for violating the terms of his bail.

It’s the second time the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star, aka Stevie J, has been hauled into Manhattan federal court for using drugs while awaiting trial for failure to pay over $1 million in child support.

Judge Debra Freeman warned Jordan that next time he’s caught, he will likely go straight to prison.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew DeFilippis said Jordan failed multiple drugs tests, including in June and August, and that he has missed many more testing appointments. Jordan called the government’s concerns “lies” once outside the courtroom and challenged prosecutors to have it out face-to-face. Since 1999, he has racked up over $1 million in overdue payments despite earning a “substantial income” from his reality show, Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara said.
