Stevie J has been ordered to pay $1.3 million in child support.

Via TMZ:

Stevie was forced to fork over the dough to wipe the slate on back child support owed to a baby mama. He’ll also be on probation for 3 years, unless he pays off the $1.3 mil sooner than that.

Stevie made quite the impassioned plea to the judge, saying — “I accept full responsibility for not fully financially supporting my children when I was younger, but I’ve stepped up to the plate now and I fully support my children not only financially, but they are the closest individuals to me.”

TMZ broke the story … federal prosecutors wanted Stevie to do hard time after grossly falling behind on his payments.

He could’ve gotten 6 months behind bars. Now it’s just financial pain.
