Eve, spotted leaving New York City’s Trump Towers yesterday, has found love in a white guy! Now, she’s left her pitbull in a skirt days behind while moving off to London with her boo of three years, businessman Maximillion Cooper.
Yesterday, she stopped by Hot 97 to chat with Angie Martinez about her relationship and she revealed that people have been giving her a hard time over the past few years for dating outside of her race. During the interview, she said that although she can’t believe she ended up with a white guy, people shouldn’t trip over those type of things in 2012. She also said that she’s beyond happy and he’s the most supportive guy she’s ever been with.
On People Having an Issue With Her Dating a White Guy
I need them to stop [caring about interracial dating]. What year is it? Like, stop. Seriously. Trust me, I gotta say, it is weird for me that I’m with a white dude. Trust me. I look at him sometimes and I’m like, ‘You are so white.’ Seriously! Yes, I gotta be real like that. I’m the first black girl he’s ever been with, so we are learning. Trust me, he’s been through ‘Weave 101.’ I’ve been out on a date but not like this, not like my dude. I had to tell my mom and my step-dad who still thinks he follows Farrakhan. It’s crazy. We learn a lot about each other but people came at me like, ‘I can’t believe you’re dating a white dude and you don’t like black dudes no more.’ I’m like, ‘I love black men, it just so happens that my heart went this way right now.’ Who knows? I’m happy…My family’s happy. [My pops] is cool. He still keeps calling him ‘my friend.’ [He says], ‘How’s your friend?’ Like, it’s been almost three years.
People came at me. Now it’s better, like when I started sending pictures or people started seeing pictures on Twitter, people really came at me hard, but now it’s fine. Like I said, I do look at him like, I can’t believe I’m with a white dude. I don’t let him dance. I tell him, ‘Look like a pimp, I will dance around you.’ He can do a lot of things, but he can’t dance.
On Whether or Not Her Boyfriend Knows About Her Ruff Ryder Days
Yes, and he still can’t understand it. He thinks it’s all cute which also annoys me sometimes, like, ‘Look how cute you are.’ No, I was hard. He’s real proud though. I’ve never been with somebody so supportive in my life so it’s good. It’s a blessing.
You can’t have E-V-E on the show without bringing up her ex Stevie J from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. When asked for her thoughts on his actions on the show, she responded:
I have not seen it, I’ve never watched it. I can not allow myself but trust me, people give me updates. I was young and dumb. The first person that said something to me was my mother, she text me and said, ‘You dodged a bullet with that one’ and we’ve never talked about it again.
We are all glad that she dodged that bullet!
