Eve Named in Federal Money Laundering Case, Rapper Denies Involvement

Eve has been fingered in a massive money-laundering scheme, involving her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Teodorin Nguema Obiang.

According to ABC News, Obaing—who is the son of President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea—is being accused of laundering millions of illegal funds in shell companies in the U.S.

A government report released yesterday (February 3) says that Obaing had Eve set up a fake company called “Sweet Pink, Inc.” in 2005 that may have been used to legitimize his money.

Obaing was known for flaunting his cash. In one instance he reportedly paid $700,000 to rent Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen’s 300-foot yacht to take Eve on a cruise around St. Barts.

Eve took to her twitter account earlier today to address the reports. “None of that is true,” she wrote. “Please don’t believe everything you read on the Internet. It’s negative and I don’t fuck with negativity. People tryna test me.”

Stay tuned to as this story develops. —William Nilly
