Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Stevie J not only has child-support problems but may have drug problems, too. After being arrested earlier this month in Atlanta on charges that he owes $1,107,412 in back child support, Stevie J was also drug-tested.

According to TMZ, before he posted his $25,000 bail, a drug test showed that both coke and weed were in his system. Although the judge allowed Stevie J to post his bail, a condition was added that he must submit to random drug testing.

Stevie J’s child-support legal woes started when he allegedly failed to pay the required $8,500 a month in support to the two children he fathered with his live-in girlfriend in 1997 and 1998.
