After hitting it off on the set of her series “Born Again Virgin,” model and reality TV personality Eva Marcille is dating possible future Atlanta mayor candidate Michael Sterling.
The 33-year-old former prosecutor and former senior advisor to Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, is currently the executive director of the Atlanta Workforce Development Agency.
Not only does Sterling have aspirations to replace Mayor Reed after his term ends, but others describe him as a celebrity groupie, who was last spotted at Pepsi’s Black History celebration at Doe Restaurant with Angela Simmons (who was accompanied by her older boyfriend).
Eva is best known for winning the third cycle of “America’s Next Top Model,” and at that time she was using her birth name Eva Pigford. She later changed it for acting purposes. Marcille most recently played the role of Tyra Hamilton on the soap opera “The Young and the Restless.” In July 2006, Marcille started dating Tyler Perry’s “House of Payne” star Lance Gross. They got engaged on December 24, 2008 and split up in March 2010. She also dated rapper Flo Rida from 2010 to 2012.
In January 2013, Eva has been dating singer-songwriter Kevin McCall. She gave birth to her first child, and McCall’s second daughter, Marley Rae McCall on January 31, 2014. The couple called it quits in early 2015.
According to reports, McCall is not pleased with Eva and Michael’s relationship, as he expressed in an IG post, see below. Earlier this month, Kevin’s social media beef with Chris Brown had all of Black Twitter entertained, including Kevin’s baby’s mother, Eva. Marcille posted a meme of Michael Jackson eating popcorn, which didn’t sit too well with Kevin. He responded with the following post:
“Don’t help them tear your child’s dad down … don’t sit back and eat popcorn as you just posted … make a difference. Support your child’s father. I ain’t never hurt nobody but P. Diddy’s bodyguard when he pushed you and your friends on the ground at NeYo’s brunch. You let everyone go on believing I was just a Watts “n*gga” … but I was protecting you and your friends. We need more MICHELLE Obamas not #Basketballwives baby. Love you always tho. #SaveBlackFamilies.”
Eva and Kevin’s relationship was quite turbulent, with abuse allegations that led to Eva being granted a five-year restraining against him.
