    Default Rapper Eve Dating Heir to African Dictatorship

    "Has Eve's fling brought her a despot of gold?"

    Hip-hop star Eve has found an African man who's handsome, well-tailored and super-rich. So why are some of her friends praying she'll break up with him?

    Teodorin Nguema Obiang, the 35-year-old son of Equatorial Guinea dictator Teodoro Obiang Nguema, spares no expense when it comes to making Eve happy.

    Over the Christmas holidays, he spent close to $700,000 to rent Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen's 303-foot yacht, Tatoosh. A guest at a party he threw when the vessel was docked in St. Barts tells us: "They looked very affectionate. They were dancing all night."

    Still, he does come with a bit of baggage. His father, who has ruled their West African country since 1979, has been accused by Amnesty International of torturing and unjustly imprisoning political opponents, and came in at No. 10 this year on Parade magazine's annual list of the top 10 dictators.

    Critics have also accused the Obiang family of profiting from oil, while the average citizen in the country survives on $1 a day. A 2004 U.S. Senate report found that Washington's Riggs Bank allowed Obiang and his associates to move millions out of government accounts into personal ones.

    Young Teodorin holds the position of minister of state for forestry, environment and housing, and ran his father's 2002 reelection campaign (plagued by accusations of fraud). Yet some wonder if governing is his thing.

    The American-educated Teodorin is often at his mansions in Cape Town, London, Paris and Los Angeles. He also owns TNO Records, which, to date, hasn't produced many records. During one spree last year, he reportedly spent $1.5 million on two Bentleys and a Lamborghini Murcielago. His own father has described him as "sometimes impulsive."

    In spite of his outside interests, he seems to be the president's heir apparent. In 2003, after a quarrel with the young Obiang, his uncle Armengol Ondo Nguema, the national security chief, underwent two mysterious "suicide attempts" and was later sent out of the country to "recover."

    Eve, who met Teodorin two years ago, should know there may be other ladies in his life. The frisky divorcÚ is said to have turned up for a meeting in France with a retinue of Russian beauties.

    A friend of the 27-year-old singer said, "He's been after her for a long time. She finally gave in. Since then, it's been off and on. She knows what he's about. But she forgets."
