News: Ruff Ryders' Eve Searching For Love, "I Need Somebody In My Life"
Wednesday, Jul 14, 2010 2:00PM
Ruff Ryders' Eve recently opened up about her personal life and revealed that she is currently looking for romance.
Speaking in a Sister 2 Sister interview, Eve said she is no longer dating ex-boyfriend Teodorin Obiang and recently parted ways with a man from Ghana.
"I was going to Ghana for a while just because that's where he is from. He's an amazing man. We keep in touch every so often. He was a great guy, but I knew it wasn't right. We definitely didn't have the same things going on in our heads, as far as what it is we wanted as a life. He pretty much was down to do whatever I wanted to do and I don't need that, you know? I need somebody in my life that's going to challenge me. Like, I definitely want to be priority, but I don't want a sap." (All Hip Hop)
Earlier this year, Eve was named as a suspect in a money laundering scheme allegedly involving her ex-boyfriend Obiang.
Senate investigators spent three years tracking money flowing into the U.S. from the accounts of her on-and-off again boyfriendTeodorin 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)
