Faith Evans has married boyfriend Stevie J in an impromptu Las Vegas wedding.
The widow of the late rap legend The Notorious BIG tied the knot with musician and producer Stevie on Tuesday at the Trump Hotel on the Las Vegas strip.
According to TMZ, the couple were spotted on Tuesday afternoon outside a courthouse in Sin City where they acquired a marriage license – and less than five hours later, they were saying their ‘I Do’s.
The website reports that Faith, 45, called a Vegas officiant named Joelle Righetti at 6pm asking if she was available immediately to conduct a wedding.
At 10.30pm, Righetti, who calls herself the ‘Gypsy Mobile Minister’ on her website, conducted the ceremony in the living room of Faith and Stevie’s hotel suite.
Sources close to the couple told TMZ that the lovebirds held hands and got emotional as Ave Maria was played over a portable speaker in the room.
Stevie – real name Steven Aaron Jordan – and Faith are believed to have started dating in 2015, and reportedly briefly split last year.
Stevie, 46, is a father of six.
Mesmerized singer Faith was famously married to The Notorious BIG from 1994 until his murder in 1997.
She collaborated with P Diddy on the huge hit I’ll Be Missing You, which was dedicated to her late husband.
Faith was married to Todd Russaw from 1998 until 2011, and has four children – daughter Chyna, son CJ, who she had with Biggie, and her sons with Todd, Ryder and Joshua.
