'Love and Hip Hop' Star Mimi Faust In Sex Tape: Did She Make Sex Tape To Boost Ratings?

First Posted: Apr 14, 2014 01:18 PM EDT

When all else fails, make a sex tape. It looks like Mimi Faust is completely over her baby-daddy and longtime love Stevie J, because she's set to release a sex tape with new love, Nikko Smith, on Vivid Video this month... and this will coincide with the premiere of VH1's ratchet drama, Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta!

For those of you who don't keep up with this ridiculous drama: Stevie J is a songwriter who made some pretty successful hits for such A-list folk as Mariah Carey. He'd been with Mimi Faust for more than 15 years, and they share a child together. For the purposes of this buffoonery of a show -- and apparently not receiving enough in royalty checks -- Mimi, Stevie J, and Stevie J's new girlfriend/wife Joseline Hernandez (a stripper turned singer/rapper whose "Hello, MAID" insult of Mimi became an Instagram meme for a while) all signed up and played out their hood dramas and travails to the amusement of millions. 

After Stevie J married Joseline (and she had the nerve -- the nerve! -- to wear white!), Mimi finally figured out that her time with Stevie J was over (better late than never), and began dating Nikko Smith, a man whose sole redeeming quality seems to be that he doesn't look like a chipmunk on steroids. But if she likes it, I love it. 

Now, to prove she's really over Stevie J -- to collect a few coins in the process -- and, of course, to promote the new season of Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta (was a red carpet event out of the question? Where is this woman's publicist?), Mimi has teamed up with porn juggernaut Vivid Video to release Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta. But eagle-eyed observers will note that she, yet again, took a page out of her ex's playbook: according to, an "intimate tape" of Stevie J with rapper Eve emerged in 2000. 

Get your paper, I guess...

Nevertheless, both Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta and Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta will hit the airwaves next month. And if you're so inclined, head on over to to see the "official photos" of the sex tape. (18+ only.)
