NEW YORK (AP) — New York prosecutors say a cast member on VH1's "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" has been arrested and charged with failing to pay over $1 million in child support.

The cast member, 40-year-old Steven Jordan, known as "Stevie J," is also a Grammy-winning record producer.

He was arrested Monday. At an Atlanta court appearance Tuesday, he was ordered held until a bail hearing Wednesday. His lawyer declined comment afterward.

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara (buh-RAH'-ruh) says Jordan, an Atlanta resident, failed to pay support for two children while earning $27,000 monthly.

Prosecutors say Jordan failed to make a voluntary payment in the first nine months of 2013. At the time, he earned $193,000 on the show and another $100,000 from music royalties.

VH1 has declined to comment.
