Ruff Ryders' Eve has responded to reports today naming her as one possible suspect in a foreign money scandal involving her alleged boyfriend.
Writing via Twitter, E-v-e told fans to not believe the hype and speculation.
"Non of that is true," she wrote Thursday (February 4) afternoon. "Please don't believe everything you read on the internet. it's negative and I don't f*ck wit negativity. People trynna Test me. Now listening 2 Sizzla "praise ye Jah" and "head over hills" RT @MusicPrincess96: @TheRealEve True.I dont believe in these negative thinngs.They just rumours. Thanku!!! Thank ya'll 4 the support!!!!!

Reports on her involvement landed online earlier today.
Senate investigators spent three years tracking money flowing into the U.S. from the accounts of her on-and-off again boyfriend Teodorin Nguema Obiang. He is the playboy son of President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea, the corrupt dictator whose three-decade reign has been marked by rumors -- believed to be falsely spread to incite fear -- of cannibalism. Investigators believe most, if not all, of the millions in cash came from corruption related to the massive oil and gas reserves off the coast of the tiny West African country. (ABC News)
Outside of legal woes, Eve recently talked about the status of Ruff Ryders.
"In L.A., [DMX] came and flew out and [Ruff Ryders CEO] Waah and it was the first time we got to hang out in year and half, just building and having fun," Eve said in an interview. "People have changed but the love never changes. It's like if you have a bunch of kids who go off to college...but when they come back together it is what it is. I could never do a record without Swizz. That's like against the religion." (All Hip Hop)
Ruff Ryders CEO Waah Dean recently spoke on the forthcoming Evolution: Generation I reunion album.
"The compilation is pretty much finished and we're looking to knock it out and have it up and running at the end of 2nd, beginning of 3rd quarter," he revealed in an interview. "We got a couple of nice joints. It's gonna be a mixture of the old and new... we got this joint called 'Family.' We got a remix on it too and we want to launch the compilation with that. It's expressing a lot of how families should move and how they should roll. We're gonna feature our established artists, new artists and we're gonna remix it and just really unify the family thing, bring back the foundation. We have collaborations songs that we did with The Lox and Cassidy and we get a song from each artist and let them express themselves. It's gonna be a decent album, we're gonna do that one independent and we may even take it upstairs (to major label) to do that on a whole other level. This album is really going to be about coming together." (Hip Hop Wired)
