Rapper Eve: Janet Jackson saved me after I was drugged at a party
"First time I had ever met her. I was so embarrassed."
The now infamous escapades of Tiffany Haddish and Beyonce during an ill-fated industry party have made one think super clear to us mere mortals: celebrity makes for some interesting pairings; even if for only one night.
And now it appears another celebrity is coming forward to share an unexpected anecdote about a wild night in Hollywood.
Monday, on her CBS show The Talk, rapper-turned cohost Eve opened up about what happened the night someone spiked her drink at an industry after party.
The most notable tidbit being that in a room of friends, it was Janet Jackson, who she had never even met previously, that came to her rescue.
According to Eve,
“Years ago, I was at an after party for an award show. And there were lots of people that I knew there. It was all people that I was in the industry with. So, I was kind of walking around, putting my drink down, talking to people, coming back, picking my drink up.
And probably about an hour after the last time I picked my drink up, I started feeling crazy. And not drunk. I knew immediately something was different. And it was weird because I was there but I wasn’t there.
I forget who I was with but whoever I was with, I tapped them on a shoulder and I said, ‘Something is wrong.’ And they said, ‘No you’re just drunk.’ And then I started hysterically crying. And they were like, ‘Ok, something’s up.’ I get put into a room and I’m crying and I’m like ‘Guys something’s wrong. Something’s wrong.’ And I hear this really soft voice that’s like, ‘It’s okay, it’s okay. I’ll take care of it.’
And I’m like snot crying, y’all. And I turn around and it’s Janet Jackson. And she’s like, ‘I got this. Don’t worry. Relax. Calm down.’
And I am so ugly when I snot cry. And I was so embarrassed. And I was like, ‘I didn’t want to meet you like this.’ First time I had ever met her. I was so embarrassed. So ugly.”
If you ever needed another reason to love Damita Jo, this definitely qualifies.
