AFRICANGLOBE – American Rapper Eve revealed that several people launched hateful comments at her when they learned she was dating a White guy.
The Let Me Blow Ya Mind star has been in a relationship with English businessman and founder of the Gumball 3000 brand, Max Cooper for three years.
Though she says things are “totally fine” now, she admits that she initially received a barrage of hateful comments when people discovered she was in an interracial relationship.
“When people found out I was with a White dude, some people really came at me on Twitter,” Eve said. “I got a lot of hate.
“People were like, ‘I can’t believe you’re with a White guy, what the f*** are you doing?’ People went in! But now, it’s totally fine.”
The Philadelphia-born rapstress, who recently released her new album Lip Lock, admitted that even she found it hard to adapt to a relationship with a White male.
“I’ve gotta say, even for me, it took a little bit of time to be comfortable being out with him [Cooper] in my music situation, because it’s different – it’s not considered the norm. But now, everything is cool and I’m very happy.”
