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."
-- Eve recounts a time in which she was drugged at an industry after-party and Janet Jackson came to her rescue, while appearing on The Talk yesterday. The experience highlights the fact that being under the lights and glamour of Hollywood isn't protection from predators. It's also a cautionary tale for never leaving your drink unattended.
