Eva Marcille Confirms Kevin McCall Wasn’t Invited To Daughter’s Birthday Party

HipHollywood caught up with Eva Marcille who explained why Kevin McCall, father of her one-year daughter, wasn’t invited to their child’s birthday party. Eva gushed speaking on the celebratory event, “I felt like it was my birthday party … It was awesome seeing my daughter turn one,” but quickly changed demeanor when pressed on why Kevin wasn’t present.

“It’s public knowledge that I have a five year restraining order against my kid’s father so I don’t know why this special day your restraining order should be dropped, it’s not,” she explained.

In a recent interview with VLADTV, Kevin admits he and Eva got into an argument prior to her filing a restraining order, but says he never put his hands on her. “It was a regular argument like men and women have. You know whoever calls the police first, the other goes to jail, as Mike Epps would say.”

“I’m not calling her a liar. I’m not calling her a bad person. I forgive her for everything that happened, but there was no abuse that occurred. No verbal abuse. No physical abuse. No chasing of a baby. I did kick down doors. Sometimes I hit things. I break down things. I broke down my studio door.”

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
