Eve revealed once that right before she met her husband’s family, he told her that his dad was racist. The revelation which made her nervous at the time turned out to be a big joke.


In an episode of “The Talk” which discussed interracial relationships, the beautiful rapper, and actress, Eve Cooper recounted her ordeal during her first meeting with her hubby’s parents.



The star MC revealed that before her marriage to husband Maximillion Cooper, and even before she met his parents, the millionaire husband talked about his father’s dislike for black people.


This made her afraid of getting formally introduced to the Coopers, but her husband thought it was funny and had a good laugh after attesting that it was a joke on her.

As it turned out, the meeting was perfect, and his parents were amazing and beautiful. She admitted that the experience left her stressed out.



The television star’s revelation was in reaction to the story of Ashley Graham, whose racist grandmother was against her relationship with a black guy.

Following her reflection, the hip hop artist explained how she felt at that moment when she thought that her would-be inlaws were racist.


She detailed the questions that went through her head at that point and tried to relate it to what the model and her boyfriend must have gone through because of the oppressive grandma.

Although her bae thought it was laughable, she stated that she did not find it funny until the meeting was in progress and she realized that his folks were amazing and not even close to being racist.


The Gumball’s first lady had this to say in her husband’s defense, she said:

“You have to know my husband. He thinks stuffs like this is funny.”

She, however, was quick to admit that the father of four had a sick sense of humor.


The Gumball 3000 founder told "E-News" that he first met his wife during a Gumball 3000 rally, and they have been together every day after.

The duo tied the knot in June of 2014 in the beautiful city of Ibiza, Spain. The city of their wedding was significant because it represented the final stop of the 2014 Gumball rally, considering that they met during the start of the event in 2010. How perfect!
