Stevie married Kai in 2001, and after separating in 2009, the couple eventually filed for divorce in 2012. Their break-up made headlines when Stevie was ordered to pay a shocking amount of child support.

According to E!, the former couple's divorce was finalized in 2015 by a judge in Los Angeles, and Stevie was ordered to pay $25 000 a month in child support. At the time, he had nine children.
