‘I Had a Meltdown’: Eve Explains Why She Was Worried About Her Baby During Her ‘Verzuz’ Battle Against Trina

Eve discussed during an Tuesday, Oct. 19, interview with “The Breakfast Club” why she was worried about her baby when she participated in a “Verzuz” battle with Trina.

The 42-year-old, who was promoting her new ABC series “Queens” with Brandy, Naturi Naughton and Nadine Velazquez, disclosed at the 28:25 mark of the interview that in June, the month that the competition took place, she discovered she was pregnant with her first child.

She said, “What’s crazy is that’s when I just found out that I was pregnant. I literally newly was pregnant, and I was stressed the f–k out.” Eve shared that one of her stressors during the battle was preparations not going according to plan.

“My stylist didn’t bring me no clothes. That whole day, I had a meltdown right before we went on.” As the rapper continued, she mentioned how much she enjoyed the “Verzuz” battle against Trina because of her real-life bond with the rapper and her friendship with Swizz Beatz. She also explained that she didn’t travel to Miami, where the event was held, because of her pregnancy.

Eve said while bringing up the worries she encountered during the early stages, “I was supposed to fly to Miami, and at the last minute, I didn’t. I had to tell Swizz, and he was like, ‘all good, sis, we got you, of course.’ My brother, I love him so much. So I was stressed out, and I was like am I standing too much. I kept thinkin’ ’bout the baby.”

She jokingly added, “I was like ‘am I standing too much? Am I screaming too much? Can you rap when you pregnant?’ I was so stressed out.” As everyone in the studio began laughing at Eve’s remarks, she wrapped that conversation by saying that all the worries stemmed from entering this new chapter of her life, becoming a first-time mother.
