Rapper Eve‘s ex-boyfriend Stevie J, who appears on VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, has dismissed rumors that he leaked the couple’s infamous sex tape in the early 2000s.
The ‘Who’s That Girl’ hit maker and the producer were engaged, but later broke up in 2000.
An intimate clip containing sexually explicit footage of the pair was subsequently released, prompting fans to point the finger at the former Bad Boy Entertainment hitmaker for the leak.
However, Stevie J wanted to set the record straight during an appearance on MTV’s RapFix live on Wednesday (July 18 ), finally insisting, that after a decade, it was one of Eve‘s pals who put the video on the web.
“It wasn’t me,” Stevie said laughing, mimicking the chorus to reggae singer Shaggy’s 2000 hit It Wasn’t Me.
Added the producer,
“I made a tape and gave it to her and she took it on the road, on tour with her, and the rest was history. It wasn’t me, I didn’t leak that joint (video). I gave it to her and one of her girlfriends leaked it, thank you very much. I don’t want my beefcake all in the street.”
Stevie, who is responsible for songs such as Mariah Carey’s ‘Honey,’ as well as Notorious B.I.G.’s hit ‘Mo Money, Mo Problems,’ is currently the catalyst of a love triangle between his daughter’s mother Mimi Faust and his artist Joseline Hernandez on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.
