The former islander spilled on her brief dalliance with the 'Rack City' rapper.
Speaking to Capital XTRA's Will Njobvu, the former islander - who was booted off the show last week - confirmed that she and Tyga messaged after his break up with ex-girlfriend Kylie Jenner.
"This literally happened not too long ago, but it was nothing," the 20-year-old said. "I feel like it's been very blown out of proportion, it was literally nothing big."
After Eve spoke about the messages during the "Spill The Tea" challenge in the Cape Town villa, Tyga liked a tweet appeared to mock the hostess, which Eve has since brushed off.
"I think the thing is when you've got that kind of fame you can message anyone and a lot of people would just be like "Ah wow!" Obviously you want to look a bit more prestige, you're not up in everyone's DMs. So yeah, I get that."
The ex-contestant went on to explain exactly where she first met the rapper. "I was in a London club, I can't remember the one... it was Reign. He was performing at Reign. I tagged him in my story, and then he just replied to it like "Where you at?""
Eve then said the conversation stayed on Instagram before moving on to WhatsApp, but insisted that their relationship wasn't serious. "I wasn't even like that, it was just casual."
During her appearance on Love Island, Eve told her fellow Islanders "Tyga, Kylie Jenner’s ex, messaged me. We were both at an event and I posted an Instagram story tagging him,' she said.
She continued "He then messaged me afterwards and we spoke on WhatsApp. Then when me and Jess were in Ibiza, he was there again."
