Stevie J has drug problems, too

When "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta" star Stevie J was arrested earlier this month for allegedly owing more than $1 million in back child support payments, he was tested for drugs as well. The result? He came up positive for weed and cocaine.

The smooth-talking record producer attended a hearing in Manhattan Monday, according to TMZ, and posted $25,000 bail but now has to submit to drug tests as well.

Stevie J is now a free man but he has a big legal fight ahead of him. And he's going to have to weed out the drugs if he wants to escape prison time.

The VH1 show, which is the network's most popular program averaging more than 3.2 million viewers an episode, is currently airing footage from several months ago. From what I"m told, it's still in production so his legal issues should show up on the television program later this summer.
