Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J might have the most complicated relationship in “Love & Hip Hop” history. Ever since the pair called it quits in May, allegations and secrets about their supposed “marriage” have been surfacing. The latest claim might be even more eyebrow-raising than Stevie’s confession that he and Joseline never legally wed.
On Wednesday, a marriage license surfaced online supposedly belonging to Joseline Hernandez. According to the Shade Room, the document uses Joseline’s real name, Shenellica Bettencourt, and says that she married a man named Matthew Louis Tremellen. The license has Tremellen’s residence as Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and says he wed the VH1 star on March 21, 1997. It’s not clear if Joseline and Tremellen ever got divorced.
The outlet also reported that Tremellen was indicted in 1993, before his alleged marriage to Joseline, on drug charges, but there’s no word on what he’s been up to since. To make things even more confusing, there are reports that Joseline has been lying about her marriage for the past several years. The rapper and reality star claims to be 29 years old, but an arrest record from 2007 said she was 30 at the time, which means Joseline would be 39 now. The outspoken VH1 star has yet to address the marriage and age rumors.
Joseline and Stevie’s “marriage” isn’t the only thing coming under scrutiny. Fans have also been questioning whether she’s actually pregnant with her first child. Joseline announced in an Instagram post last week that she expecting, later revealing in an angry Twitter post that Stevie is the baby’s father. Stevie has not confirmed or denied whether the baby is his. Fans started questioning Joseline’s pregnancy this week when she posted photos that showed virtually no signs of her bump. She lashed back at the rumors, writing, “Mad cause #babyjoseline ain’t showing! Goodbye she loves mommy.”
