Eve having ‘uncomfortable’ talks about race with white husband

Eve and her husband, Maximillion Cooper, who is white, are seeing their own relationship in light of current affairs.

“I am having some of the most difficult and uncomfortable conversations I think I’ve ever had, and vice versa with my husband,” the rapper, 41, said on “The Talk” Tuesday. Eve married British entrepreneur Cooper, 47, in 2014 and is stepmother to his four children from a previous marriage.

“But, at the same time, it’s a beautiful thing, because … I don’t know his life through his eyes. He doesn’t know my life through my eyes,” the “Barbershop” actress continued. “All he can do is try to understand and try to ask the questions, and he wants to understand, and that’s what the nation — that’s what the world — has to do. It’s gonna be uncomfortable. Yeah, it’s going to be uncomfortable! But we have to be OK with being uncomfortable so that we can get to a solution.”

Eve says she’s drawn strength from the protests that have sprung up nationwide following George Floyd’s death in police custody: “There are some people that are having beautiful, peaceful protests, with their fists in the air and their hands in the air and all different colors and genders, all together, on one knee, wanting to get past this.”

And she’s candid with where she thinks the country is regarding matters of race in 2020: “We are under rock bottom. The only thing we can do now is to build up. I pray that we can build up from here.”

Eve was briefly absent from “The Talk” this year while she performed on The Blast Off Tour in the UK alongside Nelly, Shaggy, Salt-N-Pepa and Mya. She learned the show had been put on a filming hiatus as the coronavirus pandemic intensified while she was in London before returning to LA to isolate in her home.
