Eve has a whole lot of things to be proud of in her career, but her infamous sex tape with Stevie J isn’t one of them. Stevie J claims that the X-rated clip, which hit the Web back in the early 2000s, made his ex-girl hot. But E-V-E disagrees.
“It definitely didn’t,” Eve responded on Wednesday when she appeared on “RapFix Live.” “When that happened, sex tapes weren’t ’hot’ like that, and I got the FBI involved. So that’s not something I wanted to happen.”
Actually, the tape has been the only real source of controversy in Eve’s career. Outside of that, she has released multi-platinum albums and hit singles, broke into Hollywood, starred in her own sitcom and made her presence felt in the world of fashion. In 2013 Eve is plotting her official return to music with her upcoming album titled Lip Lock. Eve openly answered questions about the tape, but it was clear that she is still bothered by the lingering effects.
“I respect my mother and my family and that’s not something I am OK with. And it hurt my heart that anyone who was in my circle — whether it be him [Stevie] or anybody else — it hurt my heart that that went out there,” Eve said. “That wasn’t my thing.”
“I’m a pioneer, I’m the pioneer, young pioneer,” Stevie said during his “RapFix Live” interview back in July. “I made a tape and gave it to her and she took it on the road, on tour with her, and the rest was history.”
It’s still unclear who released the footage. Stevie claims it wasn’t him.
