Eve and Azealia Banks Meet Up at Paris Fashion Week

Eve and Azealia Banks

Eve and Azealia Banks put the past behind them and caught up at Paris Fashion Week. The rap divas were both performers at the Etam womenswear fall/winter show on Tuesday. They ripped the runway alongside lingerie-clad models and posed together backstage.

“Eve is such a nice lady! So happy to have performed alongside her tonight !!!” gushed Azealia. “Eve reminds me so much of my sister Latwan.”

Eve reposted the photo, adding, “Amazing energy tonight!”

The Philly rapper reached out to Azealia for a collaboration in the past, but didn’t hear back. “I think she might have been one of the ones that was like, ‘I think I’m busy.’ She was doing her thing and poppin’, so it could be that,” she told “The Breakfast Club” last year.

However, she still gave her props. “I like her wordplay. I think she actually can rhyme, I just don’t like the drama,” said Eve of the “212″ hitmaker.

For her part, Azealia said she was never even aware that Eve’s camp had reached out. “Def never even received a memo about collaborating ! Def never turned you down,” she tweeted.

See the fierce femcees strut their stuff at Fashion Week.
