Eve Opens Up About Her Breakdown

Female rap star Eve has opened up about her breakdown in 2000. She apparently hit rock bottom and lost control of all her emotions while holed up in a New York hotel.
She told Behind The Music: "It was six months of my life and me trying to get back to being myself. I had headaches and chest pain, to the point where I made a doctor give me an MRI because I thought I absolutely had a tumour. It was anxiety, that I didn't know. I was having crazy panic attacks.
"I cried hysterically for hours. I was thinking, 'How am I not happy?' I lost my happiness. I broke down, literally. Literally broke down. When I finally did break down, I had no one to talk to because they all had an agenda. Even at that time I think I kinda pushed my mum away."
This breakdown prompted Eve to take a two-month holiday in Miami, Florida, where she had reflected on her troubles and decided to get rid of a few people in her life:
"I was clearing out some of my life, friends, getting away from my relationship at that time. I did a lot of soul searching, a lot of praying."
