SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A singer who topped the charts with a love song in 1990 has reached an agreement to pay more than $400,000 in child support after he was hauled off a Massachusetts stage and arrested.

State Department of Revenue spokesman Robert Bliss says Steven Bernard Hill of Las Vegas, who performs as Stevie B, appeared in Hampden County Family and Probate Court on Monday.

He’ll stay in jail until he comes up with a $10,000 payment.

Hill is best known for the song “Because I Love You (The Postman Song).”

He was arrested Friday at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, where he was performing.

His child and the child’s mother live in Agawam.

Under the agreement, he must pay $921 a week plus $500 a month.

A message seeking comment was left with his attorney.

    he should have had to pay at least 25% in cash before they let him out of jail. they should also charge interest going back to his first failure to pay. hit him in the wallet, before he pockets any money. the system is too lenient on deadbeats. justice for the innocent victim.
