Eve hit the lottery of love. The Philly-bred rapper recently married billionaire Maximillion Cooper in Ibiza, Spain.
The couple have dated since 2010 and were engaged last Christmas. Cooper is the CEO of Gumball 3000. During an interview with rolling out, Eve discussed her relationship with Cooper and interracial dating.
“I never thought I would date outside of my race,” Eve said. “I never thought it would seriously be something that I considered because of where we come from. Interracial dating is still not as prevalent in our community. But when I met him, it was something that was so familiar. We recognize each other in a deeper way. If somebody is treating me the way I’m supposed to be treated, who cares what race he happens to be? It took a while for us to get comfortable, but when things got serious, we went for it. When we first started having pictures taken of us, I got so many negative tweets. It shocked me. I wondered where all of that hatred was coming from. It annoys me because America is a great country. But there are a lot of hypocrites. Would you rather me date someone, like my ex [Stevie J], just because he’s black? Or would you rather me be happy?”
