Rapstress Eve, the former First Lady of the Ruff Ryders, is now the First Lady of Gumball 3000. She and Gumball 3000 founder, English millionaire Maxmillion Cooper, 41, tied the knot in Ibiza, Spain over the weekend. The couple, who have been dating for three years, got engaged last Christmas after meeting at the 2010 Gumball race.
Cooper is the founder of the sports car rally which travels across several 13 countries.
This year’s race started in Miami and ended in Ibiza. Eve met Cooper when she raced in 2010 and was stuck outside of Canada because of a previous DUI charge. According to her, he intervened and helped her cross and unmanned border to continue the race.Cooper told iD-Vice.com that they’d spent every day together since.
Eve, 35, born Eve Jihan Jeffers, confirmed her engagement last year, after the couple got engaged on Christmas Day. In April, Eve had her bachelorette party with guests that included Mashonda. The ceremony took place after four days of celebration in Ibiza, where Eve went on ahead of her future husband to prepare for the wedding.
She was walked down the aisle by her mother, Julia Wilch-Jeffers. Texas rapper Bun B officiated the ceremony and guest included skateboarder Tony Hawk.
Eve becomes an instant stepmom to Cooper’s four children from a previous marriage, but says she hopes to have two of her own.
After the wedding, Cooper told E! News: “I’m so happy to make Eve my wife. The whole experience has been amazing and we are both so happy to have tied the knot.”
