Eve shared pics of the festivities with her fans on Instagram.
“Best night ever!!! #THEMRS #friends #family #love,” she wrote.
“We are beyond happy to celebrate our marriage with all of our friends and family and start our journey in our new life together,” the couple told UsMagazine in a statement. “It’s been such an amazing experience and we are happier than we ever thought we could be. Thanks for the well wishes.”
The newlyweds reportedly chose Ibiza for their wedding location because it was where this year’s Gumball 3000 car race ended.
The duo had been dating for more than three years, announcing their engagement last year on Christmas Day.
This is the first marriage for Eve and the second for Cooper. He has four children with an ex wife.

Notably, the announcement of their marriage has gotten mixed reviews…of sorts and according to Motivational Speaker Farrah Gray,”Black Men are OUTRAGED over Eve marrying Cooper.
Outraged huh? Interesting tidbit.

Well, according to HipHopWired.com, this outrage of sorts may be due to the rapper being a bit, “hood” or as some say, “ghetto fabulous” back in the day… and we can’t forget the ‘paw print’ tattoos scrolling down her breast plate. Doesn’t get more hood than that! [Ijs]
The hip hop outlet also notes — they polled close to 5,000 people and 50 percent agreed that a black woman marrying a white man bothers men.
Farrah Gray so eloquently writes:
“Black men from all over the world have taken to social media to call Eve a Sellout! Have We Moved Beyond Race?”
Wow, I highly doubt the majority of black men feel that way considering in this day and age black women, white men couples are as prevalent as black men with white women. This is evident in cities such as Chicago, New York, Atlanta and Detroit — which according to interracial dating metrics, has a noticeable increase in the number of mixed race couples.
Different individuals have different reasons for dating across racial lines. For some its love, others attraction and for others they just happened to find the right person. We however have those who prefer being in interracial relationships for example, O.J. Simpson’s preference in white women is clear, Hale Berry has hers in white men, and of course there is Whoopi Goldberg who time and again dates white men.
Interracial relationships definitely seems to be the trend.
