Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Stevie J was fired, midway through filming of the current season of the show.

Stevie will appear on the current season of Love & Hip Hop, alongside his new wife R&B singer Faith Evans. But his role will be cut short because - well, he just got fired.

According to multiple sources in production, Stevie J was an absolute "terror" to work with. One producer explained, "Stevie always thought he was hot sh*t. But now that he's with Faith, he thinks he's a mega super-star."

Another told MTO News, "Stevie was ordering [producers] around, it was a big mess. Finally he had to be let go."

Stevie confirmed that he's having a reduced role on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta's upcoming season. But he didn't explain why. Here's what he tweeted out yesterday:


No one we spoke with knows what this "firing" means for Steve's future with the Love & Hip Hop franchise.

Jordan first rose to fame as a member of Bad Boy Records' "Hitmen" roster of in-house producers and writers during the 1990s. He worked often with label owner Sean "Puffy" Combs, producing on several Bad Boy projects, such as the self-titled debut album of R&B quartet 112. Jordan produced their lead single "Only You" featuring The Notorious B.I.G. Jordan produced several records on Notorious B.I.G.'s Life After Death album, such as "Mo Money Mo Problems", "Nasty Boy", "Notorious Thugs" (featuring Bone Thugs-N-Harmony), "Another", "You're Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You)", and "Last Day". 

Jordan went on to win a Grammy Award for production work on Combs' No Way Out album, most notably the Notorious B.I.G. tribute song, I'll Be Missing You. Outside of his association with Bad Boy, he has also produced for artists including Mariah Carey, with whom he was nominated for a Grammy Award for the contribution on her album Butterfly (1997). From the album, he produced songs like "Honey" (the album's lead single), "Breakdown" (featuring Bone Thugs-n-Harmony), "Babydoll", and for Carey's #1's (1998) "I Still Believe" and "Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To)".
