Eve Opens Up About Having Tough Conversations with Husband Maximillion Cooper

Eve has been married to her husband Maximillion Cooper since 2014 and is opening up about how they’re having uncomfortable conversations in the wake of protests, riots and the murders of Black men and women.

During Tuesday’s episode of The Talk, the 41-year-old rapper is opening up about how their tough conversations have also been constructive.

“I am in an interracial relationship,” Eve shared. “I am having some of the most difficult and uncomfortable conversations I think I’ve ever had, and vice versa with my husband. But, at the same time, it’s a beautiful thing, because … I don’t know his life through his eyes. He doesn’t know my life through my eyes. All he can do is try to understand and try to ask the questions, and he wants to understand, and that’s what the nation — that’s what the world — has to do.”

She continues, “It’s gonna be uncomfortable. Yeah, it’s going to be uncomfortable! But we have to be OK with being uncomfortable so that we can get to a solution.”

Eve also revealed that seeing the peaceful protesters has been keeping her calm during the trying times.

“There are some people that are having beautiful, peaceful protests, with their fists in the air and their hands in the air and all different colors and genders, all together, on one knee, wanting to get past this,” she added. “That’s what actually keeps me from getting too emotional.”

“We are under rock bottom,” Eve continued. “The only thing we can do now is to build up. I pray that we can build up from here.”
