Rapper/actress Eve has been booed up with businessman Maximillion Cooper for close to three years, but the former Ruff Ryders First Lady still says she's surprised that she's with a White guy.
Despite this being both she and his first time in an interracial relationship, E-V-E thinks people need to get over the stigma.
"I need them to stop [caring about interracial dating]. What year is it?" she told Angie Martinez. "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," she continued. "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."
