Eve told fans that she no longer thinks about race after marrying her white husband, British millionaire Maximillion Cooper, MTO News has learned. Eve and her husband live in the U.K., where she claims racism barely exists.
According to Eve, she no longer has to think about race – because her family is White and rich. But every now and again she does – when she and her husband have conversations about injustices seen in America.
“I don’t think about our race,” she said. “I don’t. When we first got together, yeah, of course. I had never been with a white guy seriously like that. So yeah, I definitely thought about it. But we are so honest with each other that we have discussions, and that’s a beautiful thing.”
The discussions aren’t just limited to the two of them: Eve said that she and her husband, who she married in 2014, have worked to include his four children in discussions about race and racism.
