Watch Eve Recall How Janet Jackson Consoled Her After Getting Her Drink Spiked at a Party
With women feeling more comfortable about discussing sexual misconduct and abuse in Hollywood after the rise of the #MeToo movement, Eve shared a pretty frightening story about an incident she endured during the beginning of her career at an awards afterparty with her co-hosts on The Talk.
The "Tambourine" rapper described the scene as a room of people she knew in the industry. As a result, she left her drink unattended as she mingled with other party goers.
“Probably an hour after the last time I picked my drink up, I started feeling crazy and not drunk,” she explained. “I knew immediately something was different.”
She told the person she was with how she was feeling, and was dismissed for being intoxicated. It was when she started ugly crying that her date knew something was seriously wrong.
She was sitting in a room separate from the rest of the party when she heard a “really soft voice.” When she turned around, she was looking at Janet Jackson. “I got this. Don’t worry, relax, calm down." the icon said, consoling the music industry rookie.
"I am so ugly when I snot cry," Eve divulged as she ended the story. "I was so embarrassed."
