Eve of Destruction



OK, now this is just plain odd. Eve, the lady rapper who is perhaps best known for her duet with Gwen Stefani, "Let Me Blow Ya Mind," and her role as a hairdresser with a heart of gold in Barber Shop, was arrested for drunk driving after crashing her Maserati on Hollywood Boulevard with a blood alcohol reading twice the legal limit in California. That isn't the weird part, though. The kookiness comes from this report from TMZ.com:
Hard time couldn't have been that bad for just-busted rapper Eve -- TMZ has learned that she got an early morning celebrity visit from Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn! Talk about special treatment!

Penn arrived shortly after the rapper-actress was booked by police on suspicion on driving under the influence. As we first reported this morning, Eve was arrested after crashing her Maserati into a center divider on Hollywood Blvd. We spotted Penn leaving in a taxi close to 4:00 AM.

Police sources tell TMZ, "He came to see how Eve was doing." No word yet if Sean and Eve had been out together before her car accident.
Huh. Sean Penn visits Eve in the slammer at 4 AM? Are they collaborating on a special report on human rights violations in Iraq or perhaps a new Eve video? About to go on a post-Katrina fact-finding mission to New Orleans? Working on a movie together? HAVING A TORRID AFFAIR?

Curiouser and curiouser...Stay tuned for more developments!
