dismisses lawsuit

Stevie J’s defamation lawsuit against baby mama Joseline Hernandez was dismissed Wednesday by a Georgia judge, because he was a no-show for a scheduled hearing, TMZ reports.

As previously reported, Stevie sued Joseline in October for defamation after she continued to accuse him of molesting his daughter with reality star-turned-porn star Mimi Faust, which he denied. At the time Hernandez was pregnant with their first child together — Stevie’s sixth. She gave birth to a daughter, Bonnie Bella Jordan, on December 28, 2016.

Stevie admits that he’s smitten with his new baby, and wants to squash all beef with Joseline. So he’s walking away from this lawsuit.
