A new generation of people were recently introduced to record producer, Stevie J, via VH1’s Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and the Mimi-“Steebie”-Joseline love triangle.
However, before he was shocking reality television show viewers with his blatant, unapologetic philandering, he had the heart of Ruff Ryders’ First Lady, Eve.
The rapper talked candidly with Philadelphia high school girls during what she called “Intimate Hour”. Eve talked about her career, journey to self-discovery and, of course, relationships. According to NecoleBitchie, Eve says that Stevie J wouldn’t even be able to see the woman that she is now:
On if Stevie J was her first love:
Yes, Stevie J was my first love.
On how she defines the ‘love’ between her and Stevie back then
You know what…that was a learning experience. You meet people all the time. We just happen to fall in love. Umm, but thankfully I knew better, I know better, I am happily in love now. And the girl now (referring to herself) he couldn’t even see this. I would be like, “I’m sorry, we don’t speak the same language!” But you know, it is what it is….that’s life. Sometimes you meet people who aren’t great for you but thankfully I am in a different place.
On things she would not put up with now that she is older and knows better
When I was younger I didn’t question things but now I am annoying! Like if something doesn’t feel right speak up! If you feel like you are being lied to speak up! If you feel like Sexually he is trying to push you to fast speak up. And let me tell you something. Anybody that knows your worth it will stick around. They might not talk to you about it, they may talk to you about it but if they argue with you or if they call you a name or if they roll out they are not meant to be in your life anyways….
How gratifying for Eve to witness an old boyfriend embarrassing himself on national television. Their engagement ended on a scandalous note and it looks like even though Stevie J says he “still has love” for Eve, those good feelings aren’t mutual.
What do you think of Eve’s comments?
