The Talk host Eve has been an open book on her popular daytime series, recently sharing the heartfelt story of Janet Jackson herself coming to the rescue after the “Tambourine” rapper was drugged at an industry event.
The blonde bombshell admitted that she wasn’t as careful as she should’ve been with her drink, as she would often leave it unattended and then return for a sip, as she knew almost everyone in attendance and believed she could trust them.
“I started feeling crazy and not drunk, and I knew immediately something was different,” said the Philly MC. “And it was weird because I was there, but I wasn’t there. Whoever I was with, I tapped them on the shoulder and said, ‘Something is wrong’, and they were like, ‘No you’re just drunk’, and I started hysterically crying.”
The rapper was then taken to a separate room by friends where she continued to have a break down, only to be comforted by “That’s the Way Love Goes” legend, Ms. Jackson.
“I hear this really soft voice that’s like, ‘It’s OK, I’ll take care of it’, and I’m, like, snot crying, and I turn around and its Janet Jackson…,” Eve added. “I was so embarrassed and I was like, ‘I didn’t want to meet you like this.”
