The singer was arrested in May 2020 after cops were called to their L.A. home. The two had been fighting verbally but it turned physical. Officers who responded to the scene noticed Stevie had visible marks on his body. They determined that Faith was the aggressor and booked her for felony domestic violence. She bonded out hours later.

A month later, the charges were dismissed are the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced they would not pursue the case because Stevie J refused to testify.
