In a recent interview Love and Hip Hop Atlanta's MiMi Faust claims she didn't know Stevie J's jump-off, Joseline Hernandez, existed until two weeks before taping began and that the anguish being played out on screen is real...
MiMi tells The Jasmine Brand,
“When I’m at home with my daughter, I don’t know what Stevie’s doing when he leaves the house. Stevie will say I’m going to the studio. I’m not going to the studio to check on Stevie, I’m at home with my daughter. So I had no idea who Joseline was, I had no idea she was his artist, I had no idea they were even working together… What everybody else was seeing, I wasn’t privy to. All I knew is he was going to work, and I’m at home with my daughter.”
"The first time I knew she existed was about two weeks before we started the show. It was all brand new to me, this was the first time I found out about her, her name, and all of that… I was living through it as we were taping."
