Rapper Eve Opens Up About Her Interracial Relationship
Former Ruff Ryder first lady Eve is in love and lovin it, regardless of what her fans and family her might think about her decision to try a lil something new in the dating department.
Eve recently sat down with Angie Martinez and DJ Enuff over at Hot 97 radio to talk that talk about dating outside of her race, teaching her British boo about weave, how her family feels about her new love, and what she really thinks about black men.
On her fans and critics reaction to her dating a white man:
“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! Yeah, I mean, we 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 … we learn a lot about each other.”
On whether or not she still likes black men:
“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. I mean, who knows? I’m happy.’”
On what her family thinks about her boyfriend:
“I had to tell my mom and my stepdad, who still like, follows Farrakhan and all that so…it’s crazy. “My family is happy, though. [My pops], he’s cool with it. He still keeps calling him ‘my friend.’ He’s always like, ‘How’s your friend?’ I’m like, it’s been almost three years [laughs]. But, it’s good.”
We think it’s great that she’s found happiness. Just think, if it wasn’t for her kicking Steebie J to the curb all those years ago, Joseline might have gotten left in the skrip club, and we know you’d miss her.
