Eve: 'I got stick for dating a white guy'

LOVE SEES NO COLOUR: Eve with her boyfriend, English businessman Max Cooper

AMERICAN RAPPER Eve revealed that several people launched hateful comments at her when they learned she was dating a white man.

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. And 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 told The Voice. “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 man.

“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.”
