The Grammy Award-winning producer filed for divorce from Evans last November after a three-year marriage.

According to a court document obtained by PEOPLE in December, Evans asked the courts to deny Stevie's request for spousal support amid their ongoing divorce.

Additionally, Evans also asked to keep her assets from before and since the marriage, including "all property acquired prior to marriage, by gift, inheritance, or devise and after date of separation."

Meanwhile, Evans was not requesting support from Stevie and the document also stated that the couple has been separated since May 29, 2020 (That month, Evans was arrested for domestic violence against her husband, though the charges were later dropped).

Reps for Stevie and Evans did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

However, less than a week after the news of their divorce broke, the "Soon as I Get Home" singer shared a series of videos from a beach trip with Stevie and captioned the post, "Get us free, bruh!"

Despite their legal estrangement, the couple appeared to be spending time together, with Evans telling Entertainment Tonight, "Stevie actually just came in and gave me this glass of champagne" during an interview in December. "I'm pretty sure he will be here for the holidays."

The couple tied the knot in July 2018 in a Las Vegas hotel room surrounded by friends and family.

Shortly after, Stevie shared his love for Evans in a Twitter post. "I love you Faith Renee Jordan," he said, as the singer replied back, "I love you back Steven Aaron Jordan."

Though both stars have children from previous relationships, they did not have any together. Stevie was previously linked to ex-girlfriend Joseline Hernandez, while Evans was previously married to the Notorious B.I.G. and then Todd Russaw.
