Eve to Marry Gumball Co-Founder Maximillion Cooper during 2014 Rally

The famous rally is just a couple a days from the flag drop moment, so most of the celebrities taking part are eager to run their customized cars. Besides McLaren P1's, Ferarris and Lambos, this year's racing will bring up a premiere: rapper Eve and co-founder Maximillion Cooper are allegedly getting married at the end of the race. One of the most expected motor rallies of this summer is by far the Gumball 3000, that is to start on Thursday morning at the famous Ocean Drive in Miami. Like every year, the world’s ground braking supercars are to participate, while the classics still keep their place in the line. The Grammy Award-winning songwriter Eve will also be part of the 3,000 miles (4,824 km) race that starts in Miami and will end in Ibiza, via Atlanta, New York, Edinburgh, London, Paris and Barcelona. Unlike her fellow racers, the number 48 on VH1’s “50 Greatest Women Of The Video Era” list will be driving her customized Rolls-Royce. In fact, Eve’s story to the race will get a bit more interesting than just driving, this year. The thing is, Eve and co-funder of the rally, Alexander Cooper, will actually get married at the end of the race. That is what the organizers of Gumball 3000 did write on their website, anyway. Their relationship goes back years in the rally's history. She met Maximillion Cooper years ago when she participated in the rally for the clothing brand Puma. Eve and Cooper are together since 2010. In December last year she did the official announcement: they were getting engaged. So now, Eve’s driving her Rolls all the way from Miami to Ibiza to marry Mr. Gumball 3000. Now that is what you call a good romance. Xzibit to participate in his Bentley GTC

But there are plenty of other celebrities that will take part. Known to be a race where famous people show off their beasts, one of the celebrities that is already part of the rally and a Gumball alumni is the rapper Xzibit. According to the organizers, this year he’ll be driving his black Bentley GTC while being part of the Betsafe team. He has been posting pictures and quotations on his social media accounts for more than a couple of weeks now, so we must say he is looking pretty eager for the event.

However, the list of celebrity rap artists is far from being finished. This year, Gumball 3000 will also be shared by new comers, such as 25-year old British artist Tinnie Tempah. He’ll be driving a G-Class for his first one, but we’re pretty sure it’s just a matter of races until we’ll see him riding in a crazy Ferrari 458.
