Mimi Faust’s turbulent relationship with Stevie J

Love & Hip Hop viewers remember Faust’s volatile relationship with Stevie. While Faust was under the belief that her relationship of 15 years with Stevie was in good standing, Stevie was actually in a full-blown relationship with his artist, Joseline Hernandez. During season 1, Stevie maneuvered between both women, insisting to Faust that he and Hernandez’s relationship was professional.

Things came to a head when Hernandez revealed she was pregnant. She opted to not go through with the pregnancy, but her relationship with Stevie did not stop. In fact, the three continued in a love triangle of sorts.

Stevie’s lies to Faust also persisted and the two even went to couple’s counseling. The session took a turn for the worst when Hernandez joined and discovered that Faust and Stevie were living together, causing Faust to react violently to Stevie J. By the season’s end, Stevie proposed to both women, which Faust laughed at and said was the final straw.

Stevie and Hernandez eventually married, but it was later determined the marriage was a lie. They now share a five-year-old daughter together, Bonnie Bella. Faust also shares a daughter with Stevie and the toxicity between the three has since cooled down.

Mimi Faust’s sex tape scandal with Nikko London

Season 3 of Love & Hip Hop documents Faust’s new relationship with London. The two began dating in between Faust’s final breakup with Stevie and Faust credits London with being a good partner. Despite her new relationship, it’s clear Faust still has emotional ties to Stevie and Stevie taunts London with such.

Chaos erupts when London reveals a sex tape he and Faust made is missing, along with luggage he claims was stolen. The two eventually cut a deal with Vivid Entertainment for the tape’s release, which Faust’s castmates do not agree with.

Faust soon learns London is married, with his wife alleging that Faust was aware of the marriage all along but used London for a storyline. After much speculation about Faust and London’s tape being produced, Faust confirms such and blames London for convincing her to participate. 

Mimi Faust’s relationship and engagement with Ty Young

Faust took time off from dating for a while after the sex tape scandal. Love & Hip Hop viewers watched her mend her relationship with Stevie as the two worked toward building a healthy co-parenting relationship.

Faust debuted her new love, WNBA star Tamera “Ty” Young on the show in 2018. Their relationship has been on the show since and it’s been magical for Faust. In fact, Faust says she took a major pay cut from Love & Hip Hop producers because she refused to create drama in her relationship with her and Young.
