Blogs feast on celebrity love lives. Most recently, paps snapped Eve leaving gossip blogger, Perez Hilton’s birthday party last Saturday at the arm of a brunette, white man whom she’s been spotted with in the past few weeks. Word immediately spread that Eve — who has been linked to interracial romances in the past — had found herself a white boy to kiss. Eve told VIBE about her new man.
“I am dating someone and… he’s black (laughs). The dude I know you’re talking about. That dude’s name is Shane. That is my boy,” she says. “I’ve probably known him forever. I’m probably his first or second black friend he’s ever had (laughs).”
The handholding, the closeness – the 31-year-old femcee says it’s strictly platonic. “[Shane] is a promoter in LA and he literally knows my family, he knows my little brother. He’s that type of dude where if we go places he feels protective and grab my hand,” she explains. “Me and Shane have never had sex, we’ve never kissed. He probably wants to… we never will (laughs). “
So who’s the secret black Romeo in her life? “He’s not in the industry, which I like. It’s all just very new and sweet. But we’re chillen and I’m so not trying to be in a relationship at the moment. Hopefully my next situation has me married with kids, but I’m taking it super slow,” she says. On my Twitter I had somebody curse me out about white people. Some dude was like ‘Oh so you launder money and you fuck white dudes?’ Really?! Really?! Fall back! I don’t discriminate, but I love my black men, that will never ever change.”
Eve is currently in talks for a new major label home and is recording her 4th album, Lip Lock. — Tracy Garraud
