Paul Wall, a rapper, songwriter, D.J., and actor from Houston, began dating Crystal when they were both 21, although the lovebirds met in high school. They dated for several years, and now they have a strong marriage and two children. They attribute a mutual love of music as the thing that makes their relationship great.
Crystal is a fitness instructor and also a country music singer. Paul has talked about feeling tensions because his wife is black. Living in Texas, prejudice is expected, but he says he experiences even more dirty looks and snide comments traveling to the east coast.
Dr. Dre and Nicole Threatt Young
Gangster rapper Dr. Dre, an L.A. original, was a founding member of N.W.A. He went solo and nabbed six Grammy Awards. He produced famous acts like Eminem and 50 Cent. One of his greatest achievements, however, was his powerful relationship with Nicole which lasted two decades.
Nicole and Dr. Dre met in the 1990s. He wooed her to his side with a love letter. Yet, after 25 years of marriage, they ended up in a messy divorce. A rancorous settlement of a whopping $100 million only came, finally, two days after the rapper suffered from a medical condition. The two aren't on the best of terms, but they did make a big impression on Hollywood for the duration of their marriage.
Eve and Maximillion Cooper
When Eve married a white guy, it was not received well - at all. People lashed out at her on social media posting the “worst crazy messages” that were so terrible she couldn’t believe it. It was an unfortunate reminder that even though society has come so far, there will always be people who are bigoted. This is particularly true for celebs where people can send them anonymous hate mail and know that they'll never come face-to-face with the stars.
The animosity has leveled off. Millionaire businessman Maximillion Cooper and Eve married in 2014. The two are blissfully married and are working on expanding their family. Before she left “The Talk” she spoke openly about their struggles to conceive.
Derek Luke and Sophia Adella
"Empire" star Derek Luke stands behind his woman. In response to naysayers, Luke says Sophia may not be black, but “She’s mine, and she’s mine with a heart of gold,” he wrote on his Instagram page. It can be tough for celebs who put themselves in the public eye but want to keep some aspects of their lives private. Everyone feels they should have a say in the stars' lives and choices.
The couple has been married for many happy years. Luke also expressed some frustration. He asked his followers why it is, in 2015, that it’s a problem to date people of other colors.
Reggie Bush and Lilit Avagyan
Lilit took Reggie Bush’s last name when they tied the knot at a lavish wedding in Bush’s hometown in San Diego. The celebration hit a high when the “Dancing with the Stars” bride performed a beautiful dance number, just for her new hubby. We're sure even the haters couldn't have been mad after that.
The two met in 2011 and waited until the birth of their first baby to marry. Bush said Lilit, who has Armenian background, is a great mom with a “calming spirit.” He also said he is really enjoying family time after formerly committing his life to football.
