Philadelphia rapper Eve recently opened up about romance life and revealed a past crush on former "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" star Will Smith.
Along with discussing Smith, Eve also updated fans on her current love arrangement.
"Probably [I liked] Will Smith [the most], especially 'cause I'm from Philly," Eve told OK! magazine this week at the Gotham Open A.I.R. Summer Concert series in New York City. "When I was younger, I think he was like cute and nerdy." As an adult, her ardent passion for Will has dissipated. She is more interested in establishing a healthy relationship with her current beau. Although he's based in London and their affair is transatlantic, Eve and her partner are eager to make it work. "It's hard, right? With the long distance thing? It's out of control. But we're at that point now where we have to figure it out. And we do," Eve said. "We meet up. He actually is from London, so sometimes I go there and then we meet up in different countries or cities and it kind of makes it fun, but after a while you get sick of it. You just wanna come home to your man or whatever. So we're figuring it out." (Music Rooms)
In June, Eve talked about being head over heels in love.
"I want marriage, I want babies, soon, but later. I'm seeing someone at the moment. I'm not saying [who it is], but it's been a year. It's not a secret. He's not a music celebrity." (BANG Showbiz)
She reportedly has been linked to race car driver Maximillion Cooper and previously confirmed their relationship.
Last year when it was rumored that she was dating Shane Powers, she took to her twitter to clear up the rumor while confirming that she was in love with Maximillion. "I am not engaged 2 anyone but am completely in love with someone @MRGUMBALL3000" (Necole Bitchie)
Outside of love, Eve is currently putting her finishing touches to an upcoming album called Lip Lock.
"I did another record called 'Mama's in the Kitchen' with Swizz [Beatz] that is ridiculous," Eve explained in an interview. "In the next couple of weeks, I'ma let this burn for a minute and then I'm going to drop that record...I'm working with Salaam Remi, who if you know music, Salaam is major, major, major -- I went in with MSTRKRFT, I don't know if people know who MSTRKRFT are, I went in with them. I'm busy. I got like five more records to do and then I'm done with the record." (BBC Radio 1Xtra)
