Just a few months from their first year wedding anniversary, there could be some trouble in the Jordan home.
It appears music producer Stevie J. and his R&B superstar wife Faith Evans unfollowed each other on Instagram. While this act alone isn’t enough to speculate stormy weather in paradise, Stevie J’s recent cryptic tweets have fans wondering if the Jordan’s whirlwind romance has come to an end.
In a series of Tweets, Stevie J said “drunk people always speak their truth,” and “Ones insecurities can damage them,” and “all that a glitters aint gold.”
The rumors come just a few days after Stevie J. completely put his immaturity on display, turning his conversation with baby mama Mimi Faust into a joke. Mimi was expressing concerns about how Stevie spoke to her girlfriend, and instead of having an adult conversation, Stevie mocked mimi:
When Stevie first wed Faith, his past relationship issues and immaturity definitely came back to bite him. While Stevie & Faith were “honeymooning,” his other baby mama, Joseline Hernandez, was airing out some inappropriate texts he allegedly sent to her right before he jumped the broom.
“Will you marry me,” a text from “a**hole” (assumed to be Stevie J) read in Joseline’s now deleted IG posts. She responded at the time that she liked someone else and was looking to marry them. Then the texter said “I love you Joseline,” adding “You stupid little b*tch.”
Stevie’s explosive relationships with Joseline and Mimi have played out for the whole world to see, but it appears Stevie’s antic slowed down once he committed to Faith.
Women have enjoyed wearing rings throughout decades, for men, it has been a little bit outdated in the last few years but recently, they’ve come back into fashion and so men wear rings again. Now, it’s not always clear what statement you’re sending when you’re wearing your ring on your thumb or your index finger but as you may have noticed, I’m a big fan of rings and I wear them all the time so it’s a topic dear to my heart.
What Rings On Different Fingers Mean
Interestingly, before medical science was established, people thought that there was a direct vein from your ring finger to your heart, it was called the vena amoris or the “vein of love”. Because of that, it was the natural finger to wear a wedding ring on. Now that being said, wedding rings on the ring finger haven’t actually been super popular until sometime in the mid 20th century. Western men going to war in the early 20th century often had a ring that made them think about their loved ones at home. As such, wedding rings became more and more popular as it became more affordable for people to buy rings.
So what hand should you wear your wedding ring on? Well, it depends on the culture. For example, in the former British Empire in the US and in certain countries in Europe, it is worn on your left ring finger. On the other hand, in more southern and eastern European countries in the south and in Central America, the wedding band for men is originally worn on the right hand. For example, in Germany where I’m originally from, men would wear their wedding band on the left hand while they were engaged and then they would switch it to the right hand once they got married. While that was a traditional rule and probably in the 1950s, every man would abide by it, today, I think they’ve relaxed a little more and some would wear it on their left hand. Since I live in the US now, I wear a wedding band on a left hand because that’s the traditional way to wear it. Of course, if you’re not married, you can also wear rings on your ring finger that could be something with a stone, it could be something like a signet ring, even though they’re more traditionally worn on your pinky finger.
The word pinky is derived from the Dutch word “pink” which means as much as little finger. The earliest recorded use of the term pinky goes back to Scotland in the year 1808. Wearing a pinky ring for men has a long history of symbolism. For example, in Victorian times, men including Prince Albert would wear their wedding band on their pinky ring. Sometimes, it was also stacked underneath their signet ring which was also worn on their pinky finger.
On the other hand, in the US, pinky rings were sometimes associated with criminals and thugs. For example, if you watch the movie, “The Godfather”, you can see them wear pinky rings. Today, pinky rings are worn by all sorts of men in the US and the symbolic meaning is mostly limited to a few things. Professional rings, for example, in engineering is usually worn on the pinky finger. Of course, the pinky is also the chosen finger for a signet ring and you can see many famous men today still wear them. Prince Charles, for example, wears his pinky ring stacked with his wedding band.
It’s most well known for the obvious gesture you can make with it and because of that, very few men choose to wear a ring on this finger. If you ever put a ring on your middle finger, you can notice that it gets in the way of things and it feels odd on your hand. A ring located at the center of the hand is said to symbolize responsibility and balance. Wearing a ring on your middle finger is a very bold choice that gets you noticed and maybe it can even be a conversation starter. Personally, I don’t like the look of it and I don’t like the feel and because of that, I don’t wear one.
It’s the most dominant finger, it symbolizes power or authority and leadership, maybe even more so than the middle finger. If you want your ring to get noticed, wear it on your index finger. For many men, the index finger is the biggest which often means you need a bigger ring so it looks proportional. When my daughter plays with my ring collection, she often puts it on her index finger, of course, it’s way too big and it’s more play than anything else for her. Personally, I’m not a big fan of the look of a ring on my index finger. It also gets in the way of things. Clever, if you look at older pictures of powerful men, they often wore rings on their index finger.
In my experience, the thumb is the key to any kind of a grip position so having a ring really restricts your movement and it’s just awkward. Probably because of its impracticality, wearing a ring on your thumb symbolizes wealth and influence because you don’t have to do any practical work with it. In my opinion, it’s definitely the boldest choice you can make for a ring and your thumb is quite thick so you need something substantial that still allows you to move your hand. Because of that, it’s most typically chosen in a fashion setting.
How Many Rings Can You Wear?
The simple answer is that’s up to you. There have been men who’ve worn rings on every finger, sometimes even stacked on the same finger. Others wear six rings or four. Personally, I’m a big believer in less is more and so I usually go for one or two rings maximum. Typically, I have my gold wedding band on the left hand and then I combine it with a gold, rose gold, or silver ring on my right hand. Typically, they are worn on my pinky finger or on the ring finger. Now, someone who wears a lot of rings at the same time is the English author and dandy, Nick Foulkes and I think it works really well with his eccentric style, however, it wouldn’t work for me.
Isn’t Wearing Rings Effeminate?
In fact, it isn’t! Yes, women wear rings but also men have been wearing rings historically, especially men in power, so if you as a man wear a ring today, it’s not effeminate at all. It is actually very manly. Just think of the Pope, for example, who has a lot of influence and he always wore rings. Honestly, I suggest you just wear what feels right to you and make sense.
Should You Mix & Match Your Metals?
Now if you wear more than one ring, should you mix and match your metals? Personally, I think it looks best if everything is matched. That being said, it never keeps me from wearing the rings I like. My wedding ring, for example, is gold and I never exchange it, it would be too bothersome for me to get a second wedding band in silver or maybe a third one in rose gold so I always stick with my gold wedding band and then I just choose the ring I like that maybe works with my cufflinks and overall, it creates a harmonious look.
Could You Wear Multiple Rings?
The most traditional way is probably to stack your wedding band and your pinky ring all on your pinky finger. Now, what if you want to wear rings right next to each other, let’s say on your pinky and your ring finger; personally, I’m not a big fan because the metal touches and it just feels awkward on my hand. A classic traditional safe way for men to wear rings is to have a single one on your ring finger. If you want to add two, you can put it on a different hand, either on your pinky or on your ring finger or you can stack them on your pinky.

Today may very well be the last day you ever buy light bulbs. Seriously, this is it. Amazon has wildly popular Sylvania Home Lighting 74765 A19 Soft White LED Light Bulbs on sale right now for just $ 1 a piece when you buy a 24-pack. That matches their all-time lowest price, and since they last for as long as 10 years or even more depending on how often you use them, you really might never have to buy light bulbs again!
As warmer weather swings into action, I thought now might be a good time to ask: what clothes do you buy each year? I haven’t purposely bought Birkenstocks every year, for example, but when a friend (Auntie M, in fact) mentioned that she buys a new pair at the start of every summer I thought, yep, makes sense. Do you have old favorite specific styles that you go back to — the same white sneaker or style of Birkenstock, for example — or do you tend to have “holes” that you fill, like new white shirts, 2 new dresses, a pair of nude-for-you heeled sandals — but you buy brand new ones every year depending on what’s available and where you are? (On the flip side, as we’re thinking about summer wardrobes for weekend and work — are there things that you’ve had for YEARS that you keep pulling out every summer and are still happy to wear it?)
For my $ .02, I buy Birks every few years, but if I see a pair that for whatever reason I love — like the electric blue pair at the top of the page — then I’ll splurge and get a new pair. I tend to look for new casual jersey dresses every year, but I check a rotating cast of places (stay tuned for our roundup of summer dresses, coming tomorrow hopefully). I went through a phase where I would buy a “cute hat” every year, like a fedora, but I frequently forget it and end up just using the soft baseball hat I keep in my bag. I also like to buy a few trendy/fresh white tops for work and opaque white t-shirts once a year, but I associate those purchases more with spring than summer.
In terms of “category killers” for summer, I’ve been very happy with the same maxi dress for about a thousand years now (from Loft, with a keyhole, for what it’s worth)… I also have one big, white, summery clutch (I guess that’s the term for it? it’s one of those sort of artsy bags that is huge but has very little storage space inside and has a short handle) that I got in London years and years ago that I pull out so rarely that it’s still in great shape.
Ladies, how about you — what are you starting to think about buying for your wardrobe as summer gets under way? What things don’t last so well from one year to the next (or get worn so much that you feel justified in automatically purchasing a new one)? On the other hand, what are some of the oldest things in your summer wardrobe?

In a lengthy statement posted on Instagram Stories on Saturday, January 12, Dos Santos Lima, 32, said “the truth will come out” following an alleged altercation between the couple that left Johnson, 33, with “a swollen lip” and “bloodied” gums and teeth. (The Brazil native had bruising of her own, but authorities said that her lacerations did not corroborate her story.)
“After cleaning her off, officers determined that the cuts were not consistent with the kind of bleeding she was claiming,” Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Officer Jay Rivera told Us after the incident. “She also has scratches on her abdomen, but those injuries were also not consistent with the length of [Johnson’s] fingernails.”
Dos Santos Lima seemingly addressed the authorities’ remarks, writing: “I want to thank everyone who toke [sic] time to investigate the domestic violence episode and found a ‘history of long nails.’” (Some fans posted photos on social media showing Johnson with longer fingernails and suggested that he had bitten them after the couple’s physical altercation.)
The TV personality also thanked fans for their GoFundMe donations, claiming that she raised all the money she needs to pay her friend back for posting her bail, as well as attorney’s fees for her pending court date. “It was extremely important for me because I have no income at this moment … I can’t legally work yet and I can’t start my business.”
She continued: “I also never had access or any control of the money we made on the show and with the cameos. They did buy to me some girl stuff so I could use on the show.”
The software engineer took to his own Instagram page soon after, detailing all the items he alleges he bought for his wife throughout their relationship and claiming that she came to the U.S. with “literally nothing.”
“The suitcases she used for travel I provided for her,” he captioned a picture of full garbage bags and boxes. “On her arrival I already had clothes waiting for her to wear and everything she needed to start a basic life in America. Over the course of months I continued to provide for her, gave her shelter, food, and supported her wants and dreams. When she wanted a dress or makeup I bought it for her. When she wanted to take ESL classes I found a class for her and drove her. When she wanted to go to a gym I took her to every gym in town and eventually she joined two gyms simultaneously. When she needed a doctor, lawyer, therapist I would always do what I could for her.”
“My sole mission since her arrival was to see that she was happy, taken care for and nurtured,” he added. “When she wanted to start her business I gave her a thousand dollars just to start. Every time she was in trouble, I was there.”
Dos Santos Lima, for her part, took to her Instagram after the Las Vegas-born star’s post, claiming that the TLC series bought her clothes and accessories— not her husband.
Despite all the he-said, she-said, people are taking sides on social media. Fellow 90 Day Fiancé star Anfisa Nava, who starred on season 4, wrote on Johnson’s post, “Should have maybe tried not to cheat on her and understand what she actually wants? And not instigate drama and then act all innocent? … Never wanted to comment publicly but you are a gaslighter … and the way you act is disgusting.”
