Decades after Grammy Award-winning recording artist Faith Evans had her dramatic and famous relationship with late iconic rapper Notorious B.I.G., the singer has moved on and built a great life for herself.

In the 90s, Faith Evans was famously in a relationship with the late iconic rapper Notorious B.I.G. Evans was always the stunning and radiant beauty that stole everyone's breath away. Late in 2019, she shared a breathtaking photo on her Instagram:

"Happy Sunday y'all! Only a few more hours until my #Uncensored airs TONIGHT at 9/8c on @tvonetv!"

The picture of the dark-haired beauty took her fans down memory lane as they remembered her in her younger days. Evans' younger days as a singer was filled with many incredible songs and hot moments in the tabloids, especially about her relationship with B.I.G. 

The two were together for a while, and almost throughout their relationship, the journey was dramatic and filled with turmoil that the public could never really understand.


Also fondly referred to as Biggie, The Notorious B.I.G. first saw Evans in 1994. Eight days later, on August 4, 1994, after falling hard and fast for each other, the singer and rapper exchanged vows and became husband and wife.

Two years after they got married, they welcomed their first and only child together, their son CJ Wallace. Sadly, after their son was born, their relationship hit a low point.

Evans has clearly moved on from what would have been a painful period in her life.


The husband and wife famously fell into a lot of drama as their marriage hit the rocks. Many alleged that Evans had an extramarital relationship with late rapper Tupac while Biggie had an affair with rapper Lil Kim. 

However, the late rapper reportedly revealed that Lil Kim and Tupac's interference with the marriage only came after the relationship was already in trouble. 


He also admitted that they moved way too fast in the beginning and should have taken the time to know each other. Unfortunately, in March 1997, Biggie was killed in a drive-by shooting, and they never got to patch up their relationship. 

Years later, Evans has clearly moved on from what would have been a painful period in her life. With a successful career and 12 million albums sold worldwide, Evans and her singing certainly made it big in the industry.


In 2016, record producer Stevie J revealed that he and Evans were in a relationship. The couple, who never hesitate to show each other off on social media, eventually tied the knot in July 2018.

The loving couple had known each other for almost three decades as good friends and colleagues in the industry. Although, in May, they had a falling-out reportedly over a domestic violence charge against Evans that was eventually dropped.

It has been decades since Evans' relationship with Notorious B.I.G. caught the tabloids. Now, it seems that she is happily married to her hubby, Stevie J, and living her best life.
