Eve is recalling the first time she met Janet Jackson, which happened to be under unfortunate circumstances.
Speaking with her co-hosts on “The Talk”, the 39-year-old rapper and actress reveals she was drugged and in tears when she met the pop icon.
“Years ago, I was at an after-party for an award show and there were lots of people I knew there,” she recalls. “I was kind of walking around, putting my drink down, talking to people, coming back, picking up my drink.”
Eve continues, “And then in about an hour – probably an hour after the last time I picked up my drink – I started to feel crazy. And not drunk. I knew immediately, something was different. It was weird because I was there, but I wasn’t there.”
She reveals that she began “hysterically crying” and so her friend placed her into a room. “I heard this really soft voice that’s like, ‘It’s okay. It’s okay. I’ll take care of it.’ And I’m like snot crying, y’all. And I turned around and it’s Janet Jackson.”
While Eve was taken care of that night, the Grammy award winner says she was the most mortified after meeting Jackson while in uncontrollable tears. “I was so embarrassed,” she says. “I was like, ‘I didn’t want to meet you like this.'”
