Faith Evans got a new tattoo in July 2018 following her wedding to fellow R&B singer and producer Steven Aaron Jordan aka Stevie J. The couple were wed in their Las Vegas hotel room on July 17, 2018 and they wasted no time getting the relationship sealed on their skin, showing off their matching tattoos on instagram only a week later.
Both Faith and Stevie got their wedding date in Roman numerals on the tops of their shoulders — VII•XVII•MMXVIII for July 17, 2018. Stevie also tattooed her initials in front of his ear — FRJ for her new married name Faith Renée Jordan.
Although the marriage was an impulsive decision, it’s been decades in the making. Their professional relationship dates back to the mid-90’s, when Faith was signed to Bad Boy Records and Stevie J was one of the label’s in-house producers. “We’ve loved each other for years, been great friends for years, and obviously developed a romantic connection,” she told Acton Entertainment.
They also collaborated on a new song called “A Minute” complete with a steamy music video that was coincidentally released shortly after the wedding. “We had already had the dates that we were going to put the song out before we decided to go and elope to Vegas and get married….So it’s actually good timing now, but it wasn’t really planned that way. The single was gonna come out regardless.”
