Eva claims that she separated from Kevin because of his abusive behavior. In a 2019 episode of The Rickey Smiley Show, she said that the rapper became violent right around the time she became pregnant with Marley, and his violence became even worse after the birth of their daughter.

Over the years, Eva’s obtained multiple restraining and protective orders against Kevin for allegedly abusing her and also stalking her even after the separation.

Marley’s parents even fought a long custody battle for her. Though America’s Next Top Model alum originally gained full custody in 2014 after Kevin allegedly ransacked their home and tried to abduct their daughter, the rapper again took Eva to court in Georgia in order to gain custody of their child and to set child support payments from the TV star.

But things didn’t turn out in the rapper’s favor as Eva emerged triumphant for the second time as well after a judge in Fulton County, Georgia, dismissed Kevin’s suit as he didn’t provide a satisfactory answer to the court and the original custody arrangement had been decided by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge.
