We’ve been seeing a lot more of Eve lately than we’ve seen in a long time. The rapper turned actress left her London love nest and ventured into the “Big Apple” to let us know what she’s been up to. Last week, there was much buzz surrounding her visit to the Angie Martinez show where she openly discussed her interracial relationship with her boyfriend of three years, Maximillion Cooper. Now, she’s opening up to MTV’s Sway Calloway about that infamous sex tape that leaked some years back that depicts some very intimate moments shared between her and ex boyfriend Stevie J as well as her feelings regarding the success of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.” Peep what she had to say below:
On LHHATL’s Success
“You know, people like train wrecks,so… you know. Oops that wasn’t supposed to come out.”
On her feelings regarding the tape being leaked:
“When that happened, sex tapes weren’t ‘hot’ like that, and I got the FBI involved. So that’s not something I even wanted to happen. How ever it got out, it got out, I don’t know who did it…but I respect my mother and my family and that’s not something I am OK with. And it hurt my heart that anyone who was in my circle — whether it be him [Stevie] or anybody else — it hurt my heart that that went out there. That not my thing.”
Despite the sex tape controversy, Eve hasn’t been involved in any real drama as opposed to some other artists who seem to crave that kind of attention, so one can imagine how embarrassed she felt to be put on front street like that. It is great to see that she has left the past where it is and doesn’t allow it to control her or her future success. She is said to be releasing a new album in 2013 entitled, Lip Lock.
