New year, new IRS targets.
We told you yesterday that the IRS is allegedly on Vince Herbert’s back over unpaid taxes totaling $3,325,107.70. Now, according to Radar Online, newly engaged rapper Eve has the IRS on her back too. Based on newly-filed court documents (which Radar Online has), E-V-E, aka, Eve Jeffers, has two separate tax liens filed against her in the state of New York. The first lien was placed against the 35-year-old in the summer for unpaid taxes from 2007, 2010 and 2011. The total of her unpaid taxes in that lien comes to a total of $224,987.95.
The second lien came in November of 2013, after the rapper was audited a year before for not paying $102,084.30 in 2012. So the tally of her unpaid taxes for all four years rounds out to $327,072.25.
But there should be no need for Eve to fret. Of course, she’s engaged to be married to millionaire Maximillion Cooper, the man behind the popular international Gumball 3000 races. So I’m sure he’ll be able to lend her a couple hundred thousand to make this whole tax lien thing go away. Either way, it’s a rough start to the year for stars and their money. But let’s hope Herbert and Eve can fix their lien issues long before the IRS tries to come for them with jail time like they did the likes of Lauryn Hill and Fat Joe last year.

Despite her recent engagement to her millionaire boo, Maximillion Cooper, it looks like rapper/actress Eve doesn’t plan on assuming the role of the wealthy stay-at-home wife. According to Deadline, the Philadelphia native recently signed on to star in a new ABC romantic comedy about interracial love.
Thought specific details such as the series’ official title and premiere date are still unknown, what we do know is that the project is being considered for the 2014-15 development season and that they are still in search of a writer. In addition to starring in the series, 35-year-old bride-to-be will also be executive producing alongside Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment. The duo pitched the series to ABC and from the looks of it, the network was totally feeling it because they closed the deal.
Eve and Aaron confirmed the good news to eager fans last night via Twitter and even offered tiny updates about where they currently are in the production process.
It looks like 2014 and 2015 will be two very exciting years for Ms. Eve. We’re very happy for her and as always, we will keep you posted as this story develops.
Are you excited about Eve jumping back into the acting world?
Congratulations are in order for one of our favorite rappers, Eve, and her love, British entrepreneur, Maximillion Cooper. The couple, who have been together since 2010, got engaged during this holiday season. Eve didn’t do the standard Twitter or Instagram post letting the world know, “CHIIIILE, I’M GETTING MARRIED!” with the ring pic. Instead, Eve kept it pretty subtle, as it was her fan page, @RRFirstLady, who peeped a huge rock on the rapper’s hand in a recent picture and guessed right about about an engagement:
E-V-E, who is known for actually responding to her fans on her official Twitter page, responded with this:
The beauty spent her holidays with her man in London, but also brought her family along to enjoy the festivities of Christmas and Boxing Day. Eve actually has been living in London with Cooper for the most part, but still goes back and forth from time to time to Los Angeles and New York.
Maximillion Cooper is the man behind the uber-popular Gumball 3000, an annual British motor rally, and he’s also a fashion designer. He has four children from a previous marriage, kids who have had a major impact on his relationship with the rapper, who spoke to Sister 2 Sister earlier this year about getting close to his kids:
I love it now. It took a minute. I was like, ‘I’m not sure this is what I want to be my life.’ You know? But honestly, it’s been three years now and we’ve gone on vacations together, and they’re the sweetest kids.
Eve has also been open about the crap she has received over the years for her relationship with Cooper, specifically in the very beginning. As she told Katie Couric:
It was shocking. I’m dating a white man and… he’s cute. I got heat because I’m this black girl who comes from hip-hop and I’m dating a white man, and honestly… I’ve always just been a people person… and it (the romance) just so happened to happen. I got so many hateful tweets from people, and I don’t understand hate… Get over it. I just really couldn’t believe it. Now it’s fine. Now it’s fine, but I just couldn’t believe it.
Well boo to that, because Eve is happy and is wishing you (and the haters) the same happiness and blessings for 2014:
#familytime!!!! Me and my mom and my lil brother Farrod just got to the English country side. Feel so#blessed to be with my family and sharing my life here. I pray that you bring 2014 in with people you #love. And nothing but #good #energy
Congratulations to Eve and her longtime love. Happiness looks oh so good on you, boo!
Hip-hop is still a young artform, which means there is still a long way to go when it comes to giving respect where it is due. The women of hip-hop on the mic, in the studio, writing bars and battle rapping often don’t get the respect and recognition they deserve, so we decided to spotlight 15 women who’ve contributed to hip-hop in big ways.
Yo-Yo did her thing in the ’90s when she was featured on Ice Cube’s AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted album for “It’s a Man’s World.” Her debut album Make Way for the Motherlode in 1990 gained popularity with the single “You Can’t Play with My Yo-Yo.” Although she didn’t receive mainstream success she continued to release albums that were authentic and true hip-hop. In 1992 she released her second album, Black Pearl that had a positive message which clashed with the current sound of gangsta rap. She went on to release three other albums and her single ”Can’t Play With My Yo-Yo” was ranked number 92 on VH1′s 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs.
Kanye always said ”And when you get on he leave your A$$ for a white girl” in regards to black men, but he never mentioned black women.There are quite a few black women that have gained great success through music, acting and sports, but aren’t seen with black men romantically. Check out 15 women that love to date white men exclusively, or so it seems.
After Berry Gordy, Diana Ross hasn’t seemed to find another black man to date or marry. She married Robert Ellis Silberstein in 1971, the same year her oldest daughter was born. Although her real father was Berry Gordy, Diana failed to reveal that information until years later. She then divorced Silberstein in 1977 and married billionaire Arne Naess, Jr.
Here and there we spot Eve, performing and walking the red carpet, but rarely do we see her simply glowing. The rapper attended Catherine Malandrino’s Spring 2014 show on Tuesday wearing a green dress from the designer that we loved.
The air of the collection matched the demeanor of Eve who is currently wearing a honey brown shoulder length do’. To complete the two-tone look, she accented with gold bangles and black peep-toe booties. While the look is very feminize, Eve adds a certain edginess to it that’s authentic to her personality. In a nutshell, we love.

There are many times in our lives that we’ve done double-takes at the television screen for celebrities we haven’t seen or heard from in a while. “Where have you been?!” Some stars, who have so much potential, have come crashing down — or have remained stagnant — in their careers for some reason or another. But, we’re starting to see some fallen stars who are re-emerging into the spotlight and might possibly reclaim their spot on top. Here’s a list of celebs that we believe are poised for a come up–again.
Since Love & Hip Hop Atlanta made its reality TV debut on VH1, MiMi has been very vocal about her long-lived relationship with music producer baby daddy, Stevie J. But it was always something about her timeline that just never really added up. You see, according to MiMi, her relationship wit Stevie has been 15 years in the making. The problem is that Stevie has quite a few children, some who are under 15 years of age. Another problem is that his highly publicized relationship with rapper Eve overlaps that 15-year time period. To make things even more interesting, it’s common knowledge that Stevie’s infidelity played a large role in the demise of his relationship with the 34-year-old Philadelphia rapper.
Now, this sketchy timeline could mean two things:
1. MiMi was an interim girl, whom he entertained between relationships.
2. Stevie was cheating on Eve with MiMi.
Stevie surprisingly replied with a retweet, adding “baby Joseline” to the end.
Now that’s something I’d be interested in hearing MiMi’s response to. While it doesn’t seem totally unbelievable, Stevie J is known for trying to throw dirt on MiMi’s name.

Some of the best shows from the ’90s and early ’00s had everything. Good writing, great acting, and good looking men. These brothas brought some of our favorite characters happiness, drama, and a good time, and for us, they brought eye candy we were looking for on our favorite TV nights (Monday used to be THE day to watch TV on UPN back in the day!). So where have some of our favorite crushes gone? Let’s take a look shall we! Be warned, some have changed not necessarily for the worst…but let’s just say they’ve changed a lot.
Quinton “Q” Brooks played by Fredro Starr on Moesha
Now they knew damn well that “Q” didn’t look like nobody’s high school student. On for two seasons and occasionally returning, Q was Moesha’s longest relationship, and probably the one that brought her the most drama. Fredro Starr of the hip-hop group Onyx played this role, and had some serious acting experience previous to playing Q (Clockers anyone?). Afterwards, he kept acting in a little bit of everything, including roles in Save The Last Dance, playing gunman Bird on The Wire, and still focusing on his music. He recently had beef with DMX of all people. As for what he’s looking like, these days, he looks okay…
