Eve Reflects On Her Past Relationship With Stevie J
Rapper Eve hosted some Philadelphia high school girls and looked back on her life journey and former relationship with "Love & HipHop Atlanta" star Stevie J. As maturity often comes with age, the hip hop star discussed her past with the young women, calling the relationship a learning experience, but making it clear that there’s no way her first love would be able to see the woman she is now.
“You meet people all the time. We just happened to fall in love. Umm, but thankfully I knew better, I know better, I am happily in love now. And the girl now, 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,” she said.
Eve had a few more words of advice for the young women in her audience, encouraging them to embrace their voices. “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 too fast, speak up. And let me tell you something, anybody that knows you're worth it will stick around,” she shared.
Eve will release her fourth studio album, "Lip Lock", this fall
