Eve Responds To Backlash Over Interracial Relationship Comments
(AllHipHop News) Rapper Eve felt "trashed" by fans on social media after opening up about the "uncomfortable" but "constructive" conversations she's had with her white husband Maximillion Cooper about race.
During a recent episode of U.S. TV show "The Talk," the "Gotta Man" hitmaker admitted the chats she's been having with the Gumball Rally founder, who is white and British, have been tough.
However, in a preview clip for Tuesday's (June 9) episode of The Talk@Home, she confessed: "I got some backlash just recently when I spoke out about myself.
"Me being in an interracial relationship and saying that 'I'm having some of the most difficult conversations that we've ever had'. And some people lit up the comments and trashed me and were questioning whether this was the first time I had had these conversations."
She continued: "I want to be very clear - we have had many conversations because I've been in this relationship for many years. When you enter an interracial relationship, there are conversations you must have - that's just natural.
"So this is not the first one. I've been having some of the most difficult conversations because we are in one of the most difficult places in our nation, in our world, in this time, so that's why I said that it was difficult."
The couple has been married since 2014, and the star is stepmom to Cooper's four children.
