The couple unapologetically flexed and flaunted their matrimony all over the public (and all over their bodies, too) despite fans (and reported family members) scrunching their noses up at the news. Aside from the marriage seemingly springing up from left field, the biggest chip on fans' shoulders over the Mr. and Mrs. Jordan union is the question of loyalty to the late Notorious B.I.G.: Faith’s ex-husband and Stevie’s brother-in-Bad-Boy. Fans believe Biggie would be rolling in his grave upon the news of one of his closest industry friends sliding a ring on one of his first industry loves.
But let the Jordans tell it, the fallen hip-hop legend would actually give his blessing, not blame, to the new relationship.
“I mean, listen, it’s 20-something years later,” he responded. “I’m sure he’d be happy that she’s happy. He’d be doing his thing, you know what I’m saying?”
Faith seconded those sentiments as Stevie explained that their priorities now are each other and their 10 children, which they both share respectively between the marriage.
Take Biggie’s mentee and younger cousin Lil Cease or any of the other Junior M.A.F.I.A. emcees for examples, she said. Not to mention, Faith added, she had a “whole ‘nother 14-year marriage” with Todd Russaw between Big and Stevie.
No biggie then, right?
Watch the Jordans address the controversy in the clip along with how fans felt about their logic below.
