Here's the Latest on Stevie J & Joseline’s Custody Battle Over Baby Bonnie Bella
The producers of "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" had hoped to be able to draw in viewers by televising the court room drama between Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J as the battle it out over custody of their daughter, Bonnie Bella. However, a judge denied the request on Monday.

The reality show hoped to profit off of the couple's drama and be able to record, photograph and televise all of the legal proceedings in Joseline and Stevie J’s child support and custody case over their 3-month-old daughter Bonnie Bella.

NFGTV, the production company behind the reality show, previously filed legal documents requesting access to the courtroom when the former couple go before a Georgia court of law.  However, Judge Jane Barwick denied the request and has scheduled the child custody and support case for trial. Joseline and Stevie could see their case dismissed or receive a default judgement if they fail to appear.

Joseline sued the father of six last year in an effort to forced Stevie to take a paternity test and work out an agreement on payment and custody.
The couple appear to be on better terms these days and were even claiming they are considering having another child together recently. But, they still have legal issues to figure out on their daughter.

Stevie J and Joseline have been feuding over the baby since Joseline requested a DNA test. She requested for the music producer to pay for her medical expenses during her pregnancy, as well as child support. Stevie J stated he wanted physical custody of the child and claimed that Joseline was abusing drugs while she was pregnant.

Stevie filed for a voluntary dismissal of the case on February 9. The former couple have been involved in some really messy fights, but appear to be trying to work together for the sake of little Bonnie. She was born in December of last year.
