Neither Faith Evans nor Stevie J thinks the Notorious B.I.G. would have objected to their marriage.
“Listen, it’s 27 years later and I’m sure he’d be happy that she’s happy,” Stevie J said when asked by “Raq Rants” host Raquel Harper (via TMZ) how the late rap legend would feel about his widow marrying his friend.
Stevie J, who produced a number of tracks for the legendary Brooklyn rapper, and Evans, with whom he had a child, married earlier this year. The producer is also the godfather of Evans’ son with Biggie, C.J. Wallace.
The “Love & Hip Hop” star continued, “He’d be doing his thing. I just make sure that she’s good and we’re good. Long as me and her are good, and the kids are good — between us we have 10 children, so that’s a lot.”
Evans, 45, said her late husband wouldn’t have minded because while he and Stevie J, 45, were pals, they weren’t part of the same crew.
“If I started dating Lil Cease or Nino [Brown] or Banger or somebody, then I would look at myself like, ‘Bitch, what are you doing?’” she said.
She also pointed out she had remarried after Biggie was killed in a drive-by shooting at the age of 24.
“And I had a whole ‘nother 14-year marriage between this marriage and Big,” she said, a point that appeared to visibly annoy Stevie J.
Evans and Stevie J married in their Las Vegas hotel room in July.
Shortly after news of their nuptials broke, it came out that the couple’s marriage license listed the marriage as Evans’ second, her first having been to Todd Russaw. This contradicted the commonly held belief that the singer and Biggie were married from 1994 to 1997, having wed days after meeting.
For her part, Evans told TMZ that the discrepancy was nothing more than a clerical error, saying, “Biggie was my first true love, he will always be acknowledged as such. Everyone knows he was my husband.”
