Let’s Get Married: Eve Engaged To Her Millionaire Boo, Maximillion Cooper
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!
